    Q&A with style creator, Amie Jorgensen

    Hairstylist @ Giuseppe Franco Salon in Beverly Hills, California


    How would you describe this cut and color and what’s your favorite thing about it?

    Her natural hair is frizzy and wavy, so for the haircut I wanted to give her long layers and a long fringe. In regards to the color, we wanted to achieve an effortless beachy blonde. The complexion of the client will determine the tone of the color that will be most flattering. For this particular client, I wanted to give her more of a French vanilla blonde to compliment her fair skin.

    How could someone recreate this style at home?

    1. Apply product to damp hair. I used Big Sexy Hair Core Flex Leave-In Reconstructor on mid lengths to ends. It is an amazing hydrating leave-in for processed color, especially blondes. I also used the Wella EMI Sugar Lift Spray for volume and hold.

    2. Rough dry the hair until it is 50% dry. Then, using a nozzle to smooth the cuticle, blow dry your hair section by section, making sure you have enough tension to smooth the hair from the roots to the ends. Blow the hair away from the face to create volume at the roots and a bend on the ends.

    3. Once the hair is completely dry, flip your head upside down and shake it out with your fingers for an effortless look. Use a flexible light hold hairspray to finish the style.

    Which products would you recommend to help create and maintain this look?

    I love the Ibiza B4 Blonde Extended Cork Brush for blowouts and Kenra Design Spray 9 for finishing.

  • 10. Beachy Wave

    The ease of sultry sea salt waves won’t be going anywhere anytime soon! Try this look on your long blonde locks.  The best part of this style is that you can achieve this look without using heat!

    Long Blond Hairstyle with Beachy Waves

    How To Style:

    1. Spray damp hair with texturizing spray or sea salt spray.

    2. Create several braids (more braids = more waves!).

    3. Let hair air dry.

    4. Pull out the braids, gently brush through and you’re ready to go!

    BONUS: Sleep in braids and awake to a quick and easy, fuss-free morning.

    Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

    Anyone can wear this style. To do this ‘no heat’ version, the longer the hair the better for the braids

    Recommended Products:

    We love the Surf Spray from Bumble and Bumble or Hydra-Boost Texturizing & Volumizing Spray.

  • 9. Curly Dark Blonde

    A great way to add some volume to your long blonde hairstyle is by adding some serious curls.

    Long Blonde Hairstyle with Curls and Volume

    How To Style:

    1. Prep hair with a thermal protectant.

    2. Dry hair using round brush to create volume at the crown.

    3. Take small sections (about one inch) and curl, working from neckline to crown.

    4. Let curls cool or ‘set’.

    5. Lightly finger comb through the curls, keeping the structure of the curl in tact.

    6. Finish with a strong hold hairspray.

    Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

    Square, round or oval face shapes work well with curl to help soften and balance out the face shape by bringing the volume up. Medium to fine hair will hold curl well with this style.

    Recommended Products:

    Use Onesta Volumizing Foam on damp hair for weightless volume. Green Tea and Milk Thistle will give these curls beautiful shine.

  • 8. Sleek & Straight

    A great way to show off your beautiful blonde hair color is by going long, sleek and straight.

    How To Style:

    1. Spray damp hair with thermal protectant.

    2. Use a large round brush or paddle brush to dry hair.

    3. Using a flat iron, go though each section of hair, making sure the heat is high enough to minimize the number of passes through your hair, but low enough not to cause damage. Get a glossy finish with a shine or smoothing product.

    Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

    Any face shape or hair type can pull off this look.

    Recommended Products:

    The perfect product for those with fine hair is the lightweight Bamboo Smooth Kendi Dry Oil Micromist.

  • 7. Long Layers

    Want to do something new to your long blonde hair while still keeping the length? Ask your stylist to put a few layers in your next cut. This is also a great strategy for removing excess weight and adding more movement.

    How To Style:

    1. Spray damp hair with thermal protectant.

    2. Using a large round brush dry your hair section by section.

    3. Finish with a holding spray.

    Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

    A square face shape will benefit from the softness long layers provide, while round face shapes benefit as the layers will help elongate the face. Any hair type can benefit from layering!

    Recommended Products:

    Air Control Hairspray by Aveda won’t weigh your hair down and will give it flexible movement.

  • 6. Blunt Bangs

    A heavier bang is not for the light at heart, but it will give your long blonde ‘do an entirely different look.

    How To Style:

    1. Spray damp hair with thermal protectant.

    2. Blow dry straight down using a paddle bush.

    3. If needed, smooth over with a flat iron.

    Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

    A heavy bang works best on those with oblong or oval faces to create even symmetry to the face. This style is best for those without natural curl in their hair, unless you are willing to put in the extra work!

    Recommended Products:

    Using an organic base of Aloe Vera, Kasia’s Off the Fritz will prevent frizz while protecting your hair against thermal and environmental damage.
