    How To Style:
    1. Apply a thermal styling spray and blow dry with your hands until almost all of the moisture is out.
    2. Smooth with the blow dryer and a paddle brush, blowing in the direction your hair naturally falls.
    3. Apply a thermal protectant serum and flat iron for sleekness if necessary.
    4. Apply finishing products, such as hair spray and shine spray if needed.

    Best Face Shape & Hair Type:
    This is a great cut for almost any face shape but is quite flattering on someone with a more oval face. The layers bring out the facial features while detracting from the oval shape.

    Tips:
    Long hair tend to get extremely dry so make sure to always use conditioner and thermal
    products to protect your hair from any heated styling. If you don’t use products while using an iron you will evaporate all the natural moisture from your hair resulting in dryness and split ends.

  • 9. Sixties Modern Shag

    A sleek beautiful hair cut with very geometric bangs and face framing layers. The layers and geometric bangs accentuate the eyes and lips while shortening the length of the oval face.

    How To Style:
    1. Towel dry and apply a serum or oil before blow drying your hair.
    2. Smooth the hair and straighten it with the blow dryer and a flat brush.
    3. Flat iron to make completely sleek.
    4. Apply hairspray to your hands and run them over the top layer of the hair. This will smooth away any frizz and fly away hairs.

    Tips:

  • 8. Big Hollywood Hair

    This style consists of very long hair that has been severely layered. It has also been tapered around the face leaving layers accentuating the cheeks and chin. There is a beautiful long side swept peek-a-boo fringe that shortens the appearance of a very oval or long face.

    How To Style:
    1. Apply a volumizing mousse or thermal spray after towel drying the hair.

    3. After most of the moisture is out of the hair, smooth and bend with a large round brush and blow dryer.
    4. Apply dry shampoo/hair powder for lift and so the blow dry stays fresh.
    5. Apply a workable hairspray and mist a bit of shine spray.

  • 7. Sultry Siren

    This style is very long and romantic with its soft layers and curls. It has been styled so it bends and waves away from the face. This styling technique accentuates the cheekbones and lips while detracting from a long or oval face.

    How To Style:
    1. Separate the bangs from the rest of the hair and blow dry straight using a bit of straightening balm or styling crème.
    2. Apply a curl crème to the rest of the hair and diffuse with your blow dryer,
    scrunching softly to give it a bit of lift and movement without breaking up the curl.
    Do this until hair is almost all the way dry.
    3. Apply a bit of serum by scrunching a small amount at a time throughout your hair,
    focusing on the mid shaft through the ends.
    4. Finish with a workable hairspray to tame any fly away hairs and to hold your curls in nice and tight.

    Best Face Shape & Hair Type:
    This style works best on fine to thick curly hair and looks great on almost any face shape. The long side swept bangs shorten a long or oval face while accentuating the cheeks and lips.

    Tips:
    Do not run your fingers through your hair when it is curly. It will only turn into a giant fuzz ball that will be extremely hard to tame! Style your hair, spray with a bit of hairspray and leave it alone. If it gets fuzzy while diffusing, mist with a bit of water to help
    reset the curl.

  • 2. Beach Beauty

    This is a style that really accentuates the curl and wave of the hair with all of the layers within the haircut and around the face. The volume of this style accentuates the cheekbones while the bangs soften an oval shaped face.
