    Acacia Cronic for Elon Salon, Marietta, GA

    How To Style:

    1. Apply a straightening cream to damp hair. Comb through to ensure product is evenly distributed.
    2. Begin blow drying hair using a large round brush. Section hair that you are not drying and clip it up and out of your way.

    4. Once hair is completely dry, apply a small amount of shine serum to smooth your ends.

    Recommended Products:

    Not all shine serums are created equal. You want to look for one that does not contain silicones that build up on your hair. Try Pravana’s Silk Degrees Shine Serum. A little goes a long way, and it will never build up while giving you unsurpassed shine.

    Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

    Oval, heart, round and diamond face shapes with medium to thick hair that is wavy or straight will find it easy to style and maintain this smooth bob.

    Tip:

    To switch this look up a bit, you can move the part to the middle or deeper onto the side. Flipping the face frame towards the back instead of smoothing towards your face will also change this look with little effort.

    The Fringe Shiny Long Brunette Layered Bob Hairstyle Back View

    Style by Ashley Henson, Elon Salon, Marietta, GA

    How To Style:

    1. Apply a smoothing product to wet hair.
    2. Blow dry the hair with a large round brush. Elevate sections of hair on the sides high while blow drying to create volume. Minimize elevation on sections on top of the head while blow drying to prevent volume on this area.
    3. Smooth just the ends of the hair with a flat iron.
    4. Apply a product for shine.

    Recommended Products:

    Shine Spray by Paul Mitchell is a lightweight product that gives hair a glossy finish.

    Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

    This haircut and style are perfect for longer face shapes with medium to high density hair. The volume on the sides of the face, combined with the lack of volume on top of the head and the fringe, create the illusion of width.

    The layers of this long bob remove a lot of weight and are balanced horizontally. They don’t push hair forward or backward. Hair just falls where it is supposed to!
