    Q&A with style creator Laura Odum
    Hairstylist for D’Hair in Henderson, NV


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

    I would describe this look as a fun beach wave on shoulder length hair.

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

    I used a 1-inch curling iron with Kevin Murphy Session Spray to create these waves. I then used a small drop of Kevin Murphy Young Again (oil) for some separation of the curls. I finished the look with Session Spray and Kevin Murphy Shimmer Shine.

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    These flowing waves are great on just about anyone, regardless of texture and length of hair. They can be dressed up for special events like weddings, or just left down for a more casual look.
    What type of person would this look work best for?

    My best tip for someone who is considering this look is to not overthink the curls if they are recreating them on themselves. Sometimes we tend to overthink and strive for the perfect curl. Just have fun with it!

    Hairstyles @Harlow Salon in Nashville, TN


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

    This look screams grunge music and windblown texture. My favorite thing about this look is that it creates the feeling of a carefree but edgy style.

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

    I prepped this look with BedHead by TIGI’s Motormouth for volume and texture and Catwalk by TIGI’s Salt Spray for grip with soft volume. I then used BedHead’s Joyride Texturizing Powder Balm to create defined movement and texture. I love this product to create that effortless grunge and second-day feel.

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    This cut is great for people who want versatile movement and style from one cut. The layers are transient, fluid, and cut pivoting around the head shape so the client can style it any way they want.

    What’s your best tip for someone who’s considering this look?

    This cut does not limit you to one specific style, so be open to creating different looks within the one shape! Embrace messy hair and play with texture, or smooth it out for a sleek look with defined movement. Products are going to allow that versatility and your own creativity within this cut. The possibilities are endless with a shape like this!

  • Ice Blonde

    Q&A with Style Creator Lexie Cannoe
    Hairstylist @ Nicholas Sebastian Salon and Spa in Newtown Square, PA


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

    This shoulder length look is not only trendy, but also timeless. A lot of blondes strive to have that towhead color they had as children. By using the balayage technique we were able to give her that bright blonde and still keep it low maintenance. My favorite thing about her hair is all of the complementing depths of blonde throughout the mid-length waves.

    Which products would you recommend for this look?

    I first prep the hair before blow drying with any curl enhancing/natural texture promoting lotion. My go-to would be Kevin Murphy Motion Lotion. After styling, I always recommend using a dry texture spray to give the waves hold and keep them looking organic. My favorite is Kevin Murphy Doo Over Spray.

    Which skin tones and hair types can pull off this color/style combo best?

    Fair skin tones and anyone who looks like a natural blonde can pull this color off best. Anyone can pull off the length, you just might need to play with parting the hair where it is most flattering.

    What is your best tip in regards to recreating/maintaining this color/style?

    My main and most important tip would be to always be using a violet depositing conditioner when washing this color. Unwanted warmth can happen due to environmental factors over time, so rinsing with the violet conditioner will neutralize gold and help maintain the soft ash blonde.

  • Layered Color

    Q&A with Style Creator Joseline Vargas
    Owner and Colorist at De Colores in Pasadena, CA


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

    This is a very classic hair color and style. It is low maintenance, but not boring at all! This client has fine hair and when we added the longer layers, it transformed the cut and added some bounce to her normally limp hair. I love that something so simple can really brighten up a face!


    Which products would you recommend for this look?

    For this look, I used a new product called Puff Me by Design.Me. It’s a powder mist that can be used to achieve volume and texture, with a little bit of a hold as well.


    Which skin tones and hair types can pull off this color/style combo best?

    I always say that a woman with any skin tone can pull off any color as long as they have the proper undertones. It is up to you and your stylist to have that consultation to make the proper match.


    What is your best tip in regards to recreating/maintaining this color/style?

    For this particular client, I recommended she come every four to six weeks for a touch up on her regrowth since we are covering gray hair. To recreate the style at home, all you need is a good round brush, a blow dryer, and a texturizing or volumizing spray to apply after the blow dry.

  • Sexy Curls

    Q&A with Style Creator Aimee Sanchez
    Hairstylist @ William Edge Salon in Nashville, TN


    How would you describe this look and what’s your favorite thing about it?
    This client has naturally thick, coarse and curly hair. Compared to her normal look, this is actually an extremely smooth and sleek style. I love the loose and relaxed feel of the waves and the texture and volume that is lent to the style from her hair’s natural texture. I made sure to give her a shoulder length cut that would style well curly, or smooth, that had a lot of movement and a strong shape, but nothing too heavy or blunt.

    Which products would you recommend to help create and maintain this look?
    I prepped this hair with the Aveda Brilliant Damage Control. I use this on almost every guest because it’s a heat protectant and a detangler. To reduce frizz and add shine, I used the Aveda Smooth Infusion Style Prep to help straighten out her curl. For added hold, I used the Smooth Infusion Glossing Straightener. I finished with the Dry Remedy Oil to add extra shine and moisture.

    Curly hair is naturally a little dryer and more frizz prone than straight hair. This client checked back in with me a few days after her appointment and let me know her style was still holding beautifully.

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    This is a very versatile look and shape than can easily be customized depending on hair texture.
    What’s your best tip for someone who’s considering this look?

    This would be a very low maintenance look for someone with smooth to wavy texture. If someone has extremely textured hair and wants this style, there will be a bit more time and effort put into achieving this look. Either way, it has a beautiful and effortless finish!

  • Simple & Elegant

    Instagram @shearstylebyam

    Q&A with style creator, Amanda Marcus
    Hairstylist @ Johnny Rodriguez the Salon in Dallas, TX


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

    This is a simple yet elegant look. Medium length hair is so popular right now and is very easy to manage. My favorite thing about this look is that this length looks great in any style whether it’s curled, straight, blown out, or worn natural. You have so many options when it comes to this style. It’s also still long enough to throw into a messy bun or ponytail on those days when you just aren’t in the mood to style it.

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

    When it comes to products it really depends on what you are trying to achieve with your style. On this model I used a leave-in conditioner (R+Co’s Prep Spray) as well as a moisture and shine cream from her mid-lengths to ends (R+Co’s High Dive). Both of these contain heat protectants which are so important to use when you are styling!

    I also always love using some sort of root spray or volumizer. In this case I chose Maximista by Oribe because it gives great lift without being too sticky. It’s very user friendly and all I did was spray it section by section at the root while blow drying. Once everything was smooth and dry, I finished the style off with a light hairspray just to keep everything tame. I love using Superfine by Oribe when only wanting a small amount of hold.

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    This length works great on most hair types. The model shown has very thick hair and tons of it. but even if you have fine or medium hair this style looks great.

    Depending on your face shape is where I would consider doing a longer bang. The model has a slender face so we were able to take her fringe up a little shorter than we would probably do on someone with a face that is more round. No matter what your face shape, this length can be customized to fit your needs.

    This cut works great with any lifestyle. Like I said before, it can be worn in a variety of different styles as well as up in that messy bun that we all love so much. My personal favorite would have to be beachy waves. Use a 1 to 1¼-inch wand or curling iron and wrap the hair around to achieve those messy waves that look so tousled and effortless. Finish that look off by scrunching in a pearl-sized amount of R+Co’s Mannequin Styling Paste and you are good to go.

    What’s your best tip for someone who’s considering this look?

    My best tip for someone considering this look is to really try different styles. We all get caught in the same hair rut and don’t try out new things, but this length is so versatile that you can literally do anything you want with it. Always have fun with your hair and don’t forget to use those heat protectants!

  • Girl On The Go

    Q&A with style creator, Jake Seitchik
    Hairstylist @ Number 9 Salon in Saint Petersburg, FL


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

    I would describe this is effortless, girl-on-the-go hair. My favorite thing about this look is how wearable it is. Whether she styles it or wears it undone and a little messy, it still looks great.

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

    For embracing natural wave by air drying, sea salt spray is the way to go. If you curl with an iron, separate the curls with a dry texture spray. Oribe makes a great one!

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    This look is truly ideal for anyone. It’s flattering on every woman and it’s so easy to make formal or wear casual.

    What’s your best tip for someone who’s considering this look?

    My best tip is to play around with some loose curling/waving techniques because that’s when I think this style looks best. Also, keep it around collarbone length and you’ll still have a lot of hair to work with.

  • New Wave Textured Shag

    Q&A with style creator, Jessica Francis
    Senior Stylist/ Assistant Manager @ Studio G Salon in Stafford, VA


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

    This is a new wave textured shag. My guest wanted a shag with bangs as a throw back to her more youthful days. She has a natural wave in her hair, so I created a textured long shag with a curved piecey fringe. My favorite thing would be the flexibility for movement and the versatility.

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

    We applied Mirror Smooth (a light smoothing serum) for her blowout, then curled with a flat iron and sprayed in Full Effect to give a textured finish.

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    If you want it, you got it! I love this look for people with natural waves, people on the go, and girls who enjoy trying multiple looks with their haircuts.

    What’s your best tip for someone who’s considering this look?

    Make sure you have the amount of time and product in the mornings to give the attention this look can require! Always ask your stylist to explain just how to recreate this style, as well as which products and tools you will need.

  • Chic, Yet Edgy

    Q&A with style creator, Christine Nguyen-Hill
    Hairstylist @ Statements the Salon in Woodbridge, VA


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

    The look is very chic, yet edgy at the same time! I love the pairing of the mid-length haircut with the silver color because it sort of gives off this spunky, laid back vibe.

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

    I recommend is the Viral Extreme Silver shampoo to maintain the hair color. As for the loose curls, I recommend a hair wand as flat irons and curling irons can sometimes fade the hair color back to blonde.

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    Any face shape can work with this color! As for the specific shade of silver, that would be dependent on your skin tone. Surprisingly however, most people can pull off silver hair! This style works well with classy acts, and even spunky edgy people. If you’re someone who is looking for a low maintenance hair, this is not for you.

    What’s your best tip for someone who’s considering this look?

    I advise you visited with a professional and seasoned stylist as this is a look that may take a couple processes before achieving the silver color. The end result may even compromise the integrity of the hair, but a consultation with a licensed professional will set you up for success!

  • Multi-Tonal

    Q&A with style creator, Charlotte Green
    Artistic director @ Louise Woods Hair Studio in Leicester, England


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

    This is a versatile, multi-tonal, mid-length style.

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

    To create and maintain this look, I would recommend using a volumizing root lift mousse and a sea salt spray.

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    The great thing about this look is that a version of it is suitable for everyone as you can adapt the shape around the front to suit and flatter most face shapes. Its great for someone with a busy lifestyle as you can scrunch a bit of sea salt spray in and you’re good to go.

    Color wise, these tones are perfect for anyone with a paler skin tone to warm it up and brown or hazel eyes to really make them pop. Personality wise, this style will suit anyone who gets bored easily as you can change it up to create so many different looks. There’s enough length for an updo, you can wave it with tongs/a wand, or smooth and polish it with irons. You can have a different look for every day!

    What’s your best tip for someone who’s considering this look?

    My best tip for someone considering this look is to ask for texture to really break the haircut up, and to go for complimentary tones a couple of levels lighter and brighter than the natural base so they all blend and disappear into the haircut together.

  • Texture & Movement

    Q&A with style creator, Alecia Brown
    Stylist/Owner @ The BLVD in Peoria, AZ


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

    This look has a lot of texture and movement to it. It is a cut that is transitioning from the ever so popular “lob” to more of a mid length look. I love this look because it’s so versatile. You can wear it sleek and straight, or give it lots of volume and texture.

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

    I recommend Unite U oil through the ends for smoothness and moisture and Unite Expanda volume for a root boost and volume. If you want more of a lived-in look, finish it off with a dry texture spray like Unite Texturiza.

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    This haircut is for virtually anyone. It would truly flatter any face shape and skin tone. Even someone with really curly hair could rock this haircut, it would just have a totally different look.

    What’s your best tip for someone who’s considering this look?

    Product is key! I also recommend keeping the fringe area longer. I think if the fringe gets much shorter it gives it a whole different feel that might not be as current and trendy.

  • Casual & Cute

    Q&A with style creator, Stephanie Schmidleutner
    Designer @ Illusions Color Spa in St. Louis, MO


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

    This is a casual and cute should length style. My favorite thing about this look is that it’s fun and trendy

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

    The best products for this look would be texture and volume products. I used IGK Texture Foam, IGK Texturizing Spray and Oribe Superfine Hairspray

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    This look works for all hair types and personalities.

    What’s your best tip for someone who’s considering this look?

    This look is easier to style when you’re using the right products!

  • Convertible Texture

    Q&A with style creator, Katelyn Harter
    Hairstylist @ Alchemy Salon and Spa in Sacramento, CA


    How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

    This should-length look has a lot of convertible texture, making it perfect for beach waves or sleek for a meeting or interview.

    What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

    I love Rockaway spray for texture at the roots as well as Trophy to finish the look with shine and texture. Both made by R+Co.

    What type of client would you recommend this look for?

    This look is perfect for anyone wanting to make a big change without making a big cut. It is great for all hair types and can easily be customized for any situation.

  • Retro Fringe

    Q&A with style creator, Marcella Rizzuto
    Hairstylist @ Prep Hair in Winnipeg, Canada


    How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

    This look is a classic long bob with a modern take on a retro fringe. My favorite thing about it is the texture and fun feel the overall look has.

    What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

    The best product to maintain this look would have to be Chiffon from R+Co. It is great round brushed in and gives nice volume but a smooth finish. I also like to add a bit of Salty Dog from Evo after drying to give it a slight textured edge.

    What type of client would you recommend this look for?

    I recommend this look for someone with medium to thick hair. If your hair is very fine, I would suggest taking the length slightly shorter to ensure fullness on the ends. This look is great for any face shape, but usually if you have a rounder face, adding a fringe will accentuate that. In that case, bringing the fringe closer to your cheek bones will be more flattering. You really can live any lifestyle to have this look, but a fringe is always a little more maintenance so take that into account before taking the plunge!

  • Versatile Lob

    Q&A with style creator, Kyle Bradshaw
    Part Owner and Stylist @ Edit Downtown Salon in Salisbury, MD


    How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

    I would describe this look as a long bob, or lob. The lob is definitely one of my favorite styles. It has so much versatility and is very low maintenance. If simple and classy is something you’re looking for, the lob would be perfect for you.

    What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

    Products are essential to maintaining any style. Here, I used Total Results Wonder Boost. This client has fine, thin, straight hair and was looking for a little more body. Using the Wonder Boost and manipulating the hair with a round brush created just the right amount of volume and style for her. A heat protecting product would be good for any client across the board.

    What type of client would you recommend this look for?

    This look is perfect for the client that needs a low maintenance, professional, fly-out-the-door kind of hairstyle. On days you have a little extra time, add a few curls and you have a different look. If you woke up late and are pressed for time, throw a little product in it and go! This lob suits pretty much any face shape and hair type. Curly haired girls need to consider the curl pattern they have as this could play into how short or long to cut the hair.

    Hairstylist @ Main Street Salon in Sumner, WA


    How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

    I love the ease of this shoulder-length hair. It has the softness of painted hair, but with a little more pop!

    What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

    We used Kevin Murphy Antigravity Spray to give some height and hold as we styled, then finished with a little Kevin Murphy Hair Resort Spray for some piecey-ness

    What type of client would you recommend this look for?

    What’s great about both the color and the cut is that they can each can work for so many people. This look is fairly low maintenance, so you can go months between color appointments. The length is easy to curl or straighten, and you can still wear it in a ponytail.

  • Whimsical Waterfall

    Written by Sarah Nitz

    While this waterfall braid looks like it would be hard to create, it is actually quite easy! Paired with soft curls, it makes it a great look for day or night.

    shoulder-length-braid-2

    Hair by Hailey Lubbock, Makeup by Lizzy Watson for William Wesley Grand Salon and Spa,Davenport, IA

    How To Style:

    1. On dry hair, apply a texturizing spray.
    2. Curl hair with a medium-sized curl wand.
    3. Section out the beginning of your braid near the front hairline. Begin a French braid, but when you would normally add hair from the bottom into the braid, drop that section and pick up a small section from the hair that is down instead.
    4. Braid one side or both and connect in the back. Secure with elastic.
    5. Finish hair with more texture spray or hairspray.

    Recommended Products:

    For added texture, hold and volume, try Pravana’s Invisible Control. You can use it wet or dry, before or after you curl. Bonus — it has a heat protectant right in it!

    Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

    Any face shape can wear a waterfall braid and waves, while hair that has layers long enough to braid is a must. Wavy to straight hair that is medium to thick works best.

    Tip:

    Don’t get frustrated if it takes you a few times to get the hang of the waterfall braid.  Check out tutorials online to get different explanations that may work best for you.

  • Long Waves

    Written by Sarah Nitz

    Soft, beachy waves through layers of just-over-the-shoulders length never goes out of style. This look is both versatile and classic.

    shoulder-length-layers-2

    Hair by Danielle Albrecht, Makeup by Jenna Romeo for William Wesley Grand Salon and Spa, Davenport, IA

    How To Style:

    1. Apply a beach wave spray to damp hair. Scrunch through with hands.
    2. Using a diffuser, dry hair. Set your blow dryer on high heat but low force to help combat frizz.
    3. Once dry, if you need any extra waves, wrap large sections around a curling wand.
    4. Separate a small section from the top and secure with an elastic. You can even separate the hair above the elastic and flip the pony tail through to give a little more style in the back.

    Recommended Products:

    The best beachy wave spray I have used is Kevin Murphy’s Hair Resort Spray. Not only does it give amazing hold and texture to your waves, but it even smells like the beach!

    Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

    Oval and diamond shaped faces wear this look best. Hair that is fine to medium in density and wavy to straight can recreate this look easiest.

    Tip:

    If you have very curly hair, switch the product to smoothing cream, skip the diffuser and use a large round brush to dry. Then you can create soft waves with a curling wand.
