  • Blunt Icy Blonde

    Q&A with style creator, Aspyn Miller
    Hairstylist @ Lux Salon & Spa in Tacoma, WA


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

    This is an icy blonde bleach and tone on a precision blunt haircut with straight across bangs. I love that it creates a blank canvas for fashion colors and makes my clients look edgy, but still very sophisticated!

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

    You absolutely need to use Olaplex and be extremely careful not to leave the lightener on for too long. I always send my client home with Matrix So Silver purple shampoo and Goldwell Rich Repair 60 Second Treatment.

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    This look is A LOT of work to maintain, so if you love being in the salon this is perfect for you. To get an icy tone of blonde it takes time. This look is ideal for a young person who wants something trendy and modern.

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

    Invest in good products and be patient! This look took us over seven months to perfect. Her natural color is six levels darker and it can be a damaging service if done wrong. Always use a bond builder such as Olaplex. The most important thing is to listen to your stylist. It’s so important not to rush this service!

  • Fun Textured Bob

    Q&A with style creator, Casey Bailey


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

    I would describe this look as a fun textured bob. My favorite thing about it is the versatility. This bob can be worn straight, curled, up or down, and always looks good!

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

    To create this look, you need to be blonde first, then add Directions hair dyes in apple green, midnight blue and ebony for depth in the colors! These colors will need touching up every two to six weeks. I recommend less washing with a sulphate-free shampoo in lukewarm water. Try using less direct heat from styling and use dry shampoo on in between days to increase the longevity of the color!

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    This type of look definitely works best on the more adventurous and creative types, and those that aren’t afraid of the extra attention that comes with having fun colored hair! I feel that almost any face shape can pull off this bob, but I personally like the blunter, straight edged cut with my round face to balance it out.

    With my pale skin, I feel I can pull off almost any color of hair I like, but these darker turquoise greens work well with any skin tone. This look is definitely more suited to those who have freedom in their jobs. Any profession that lets a person express their creativity will love this look.

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

    My best tip for someone considering this look is to not be afraid of it, it’s just hair! If you’ve always wanted to try it, then just go for it. Always remember that it can take some getting used to the very first time you try this look. Don’t be afraid of the extra maintenance either — it’s worth it!

  • Undercut Pixie

    Instagram @hairbytarah

    Q&A with style creator, Tara Howard
    Hairstylist @ Tara Howard Salon in Richmond, Virginia


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

    This is a disconnected undercut pixie haircut with fashion colors by Pulp Riot. My favorite thing about it is the metallic purple root shadow and the fact that the sides are super short and disconnected from the long fringe.

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

    This cut has two things that need addressing with products. First, to maintain the color I recommend using Davine’s Alchemist silver shampoo and conditioner. That will keep the blonde color that silvery lavender while conditioning the hair, maintaining the vibrant dark metallic purple root shadow, and not stripping the color. Second, this cut has a lot of texture, so I recommend a good pastre to show that off as well. I like Davine’s Invisible Serum to give shine and piecey texture.

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    I think this cut looks great on most all face shapes, but I think it’s best on a square or heart shaped face. It’s great for the heart shaped face because the longer side bang helps balance out a short forehead.

    As far as skin tone, since it has cool/metallic/ashy tones, it’ll work best on someone who has cool undertones. Someone with blue or green eyes this will compliment this best. I think this type of cut works best on someone who wants/needs super low maintenance hair. The color will take more maintenance and financial commitment as far as upkeep in the salon. However being that it is short, it will be easier to change the fashion colors more often than a long haired client.

    The person who wears this cut and color is confident, stylish and loves to express themselves through their hair. They likes to change it up often. They don’t like your typical haircuts and natural hair colors. Short hair is strong and short hair is sexy! This particular client is a makeup artist, wife, and mother of two little girls.

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

    My best tip for someone considering this look is to just go for it! The hair industry is pushing the envelope farther and farther each day thanks to clients who are willing to trust their stylists to push it for them.

  • Modern Shag

    Instagram @hairbyginala

    Q&A with style creator, Gina Chioccariello
    Hairstylist @ Umberto Salon http://umbertobh.com in Beverly Hills, CA


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

    This look is a modern shag. My favorite thing about it is that it looks good on anyone! It’s a sexy, lived-in, tousled look that anyone can rock.

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

    I recommend Oribe Texture Spray, Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray or Don’t Blow Out, and R & Co Chiffon Styling Mousse.

    On straight/wavy hair, I use a salt spray like Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray or R +Co Chiffon Styling Mousse. Put in the hair when it’s wet, twist hair in sections, then let it air dry or dry with blow dryer on low so it creates textured look.

    For very wavy/curly hair, I use Bumble and Bumble Don’t Blow Out. It is a little heavier cream. Twist hair in sections to create waves so that when it drys it looks messy beachy waves. Oribe Texture Spray is a MUST! I spray it in hair once it’s dry to create texture.

    If you want more finished look, you can use 1-inch curling iron to create waves. Just leave the ends out so it looks more messy and lived-in. Finish with a spray of Oribe Texture Spray.

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    This cut works on anyone who is easygoing with a carefree lifestyle. It’s perfect for the cool girl who likes a wash and go, lived-in, sexy messy look. It also looks great on any face shape.

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

    The best tip is to not over-style! You don’t want this to look too “done”.

  • Long & Sleek

    Q&A with style creator, Natalia Pryannik
    Assistant Hairstylist @ Kut Haus Salon in Claremont, CA


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

    This is a longer, sleek style with full bangs. Hairstyles with bangs are on trend right now because it is a great option to frame the face and emphasis the eyes.

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

    The key product for recreating this style would be a good smoothing serum to to tame the strands and add extra shine.

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    This style is perfect for someone with straight hair with a little weight to it. It is super easy to maintain and really versatile in regard to styling.

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

    You will definitely want to come into the salon every six to eight weeks for trims to keep this style looking polished and healthy.

  • Long Modern Shag

    Q&A with Style Creator Jessica Woznicki

    Hairstylist


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

    This is a modern version of the “shag” cut for guests who enjoy long hair, but want something with a little more shape and style. I love it because it looks more edgy, but also keeps the guests comfortable by keeping the length and trying some sort of bangs that can be easily grown out. If anyone is considering bangs, this cut is a great intro for them.
    Which products would you recommend to help create and maintain this look?

    This guest has thick hair so I prepped the hair with Aveda Smooth Infusion style prep to prevent heat damage and flyaways, Aveda Phomollient Mousse for a light hold and shine, and finished with Aveda Hair Potion for volume at the crown, bangs, and also the ends for texture.
    What type of person would this look work best for?

    This look is great for every hair texture and face shape! That’s what I love about it. Of course knowing hair type, texture, and face shape play a roll in how the cut should be executed because the customization of the “shag” cut is key. Asking the guest about their lifestyle, seeing their hair texture, face shape and personality, you can customize with heavy bangs/light bangs, more layers/less layers, edgy/classic style and get exactly what the guest is trying to achieve.
    What’s your best tip for someone who’s considering this look?

    My tip for anyone wanting to get this look would be to stay open minded to your stylist’s suggestions. It is a customizable cut, so sometimes a stylist needs to tweak certain parts of the cut and style to make it more fitting for their specific needs.

  • Cute & Easy

    Marcella Rizzuto / Instagram

    Q&A with Style Creator Marcella Rizzuto

    Hairstylist @ Prep Hair Salon in Winnipeg, Manitoba


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

    This is a soft but bold style with a mature twist. My favorite thing about this look is how multidimensional it is. One day it can be styled more textured and fun, and the next day sleek and straight.
    Which products would you recommend to help create and maintain this look?

    For this specific textured look, I highly recommend using a salt spray. I use Rockaway Salt Spray from R+Co hair. You don’t need much of it and it gives you that beachy grit you need without going crunchy. Throw it in wet first.

    Before I used a flat iron, I used Damage.Manager from Kevin Murphy to protect it from the heat. Once the hair was dry, I topped up some pieces with half turns while leaving the ends out for a more relaxed feel. Spray some more Rockaway, tousle, and voila! To maintain this cut, I suggest getting a trim every six weeks.
    What type of person would this look work best for?

    This look would work best for someone with medium to fine hair. There are no layers with this length, so it helps someone with finer hair look fuller! You can have some natural wave, but a lot of curl will take more time, so make sure you consider if you’re ready for that commitment if you do have those waves. If your hair is too thick, this is going to take a lot of styling time and it will be harder to achieve that “effortless” look.

    You can definitely have any hair color or skin tone for this cut and style, but I suggest having some dimension in your color to show off the texture. Your lifestyle can be professional or laid back, that is what’s so great about this look. The short length and style is fun and beachy, but it can totally pass for a day at the office. This look is it is ideal for a longer, heart or diamond face shape. Too round or too square will accent those areas you usually want to disguise right at your jaw. But if you have the confidence and want to rock something new, then do it!
    What’s your best tip for someone who’s considering this look?

    My best tip for someone considering this look is DON’T TRY TOO HARD. I have so many clients that cannot get that effortless look because they are obsessing too much on each strand and making it too curly. Not every strand needs to look the same when using the flat iron to wave. Just think “clamp, twist, pull, let go. REPEAT”. Once you tousle the hair at the end, it will all come together.

  • Icy Queen

    Jenna Herbert / Instagram

    Q&A with Style Creator Jenna Herbert

    Colour, Extension & Updo Specialist


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

    This is a total “ice queen” look. My favorite thing is the shine!

    Which products would you recommend for this look?

    For products I would recommend Schwarzkopf Extra Power Lightener with 30 volume, although the developer strength would depend on the client’s natural level as well as hair texture and overall health. I used Fiberplex Bond Builder in my lightener, shampooed with Fanola No Yellow shampoo, toned with Schwarzkopf vibrance 9-1 and 9.5-1 with 1.9% developer, and finished with the Fiberplex #2.

    For styling I used Unite 7 Second leave-in conditioner and AgaveOil. After drying, I finished with Bed Head After Party for smoothing .

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

    People who are a natural blonde or have a cool complexion typically pull this look off best. However, if done right, most people can wear this in some way when it is customized for them!

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

    I always get my bleach out clients to come in on a four to seven week appointment schedule, depending on how fast their hair grows as well as how dark their natural color is. If they come in too early, you risk overlapping and breakage. If they wait too long, you will likely end up with banding as the hair closest to the root will lift faster.

  • Chic, Layered Bob

    cute chic layered bob

    Instagram @andybateshair

    Q&A with style creator, Andy Bates
    Stylist @ AJF Salon in Sacramento, CA


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

    This is a chic layered bob with a piecey fringe. Some of my favorite things about it are the visible texture and the way the graduation creates a feminine head shape.

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

    I used a cream-based smoothing product to blow it out and a styling fiber paste to show off the texture. Hairspray helps too!

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    I think that this would work best one someone who has medium to thick hair. Layering fine or curly hair could take out a little too much weight. She happens to have a heart shaped face which the fringe helps balance, but I might not put a bang on somebody who has a round face shape.

    Overall, the cut is very versatile. You can wear is smooth and professional or add curls and texture for a rocker feel.

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

    This is definitely a statement bob! With this cut, you’re probably going to be doing some styling every day, but hair this length really takes no time and is super versatile. If you want your neck to look longer and your beautiful cheekbones to be exposed, this might be perfect for you.

  • ICICLE-BLONDE

    Q&A with Style Creator JoAnn LS

    Hairstylist @ Haba Salon in Iowa City, Iowa


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

    This is a vintage-inspired, riot girl, grungy blonde shag.  Amanda is both an elementary teacher and a singer and bass player in a rock band, so she needs to look awesome and professional doing both things.

    The tone is very Hitchcock blonde. I love that it has an edge but but is tasteful, contemporary and flattering. It’s not interesting at the expense of my client. Amanda is trying to grow her hair out, and I love that it doesn’t look like that’s what’s going on. Your hair should always have shape and style when it’s growing out, otherwise it can feel frumpy, and it can become way too tempting to impulsively cut it off.


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

    Amanda’s hair is very fine and flat, but can be dry and fragile at the same time. I used an Uberliss treatment mixed with my lightener to keep her hair in optimum condition during her color process. After her color and cut, I styled exclusively with R+Co (which is my favorite product line) using One Prep to even out porosity and make her hair easy to detangle, and High Dive mixed with Park Ave (my favorite smooth blowout cocktail) before blowing it dry using both a vent and flat brush.

    I worked against the growth patterns for 60% of the blow dry to neutralize growth patterns and give it extra body, then blow dried it into the end shape. I finished with Badlands Dry Shampoo Paste to bring out the texture of the cut, and give her hair a natural bed head, lived-in texture. You could also put in a texture cream and let this air dry. My clients are very low maintenance, so the cut must be able to stand on its own.

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    Platinum is a high maintenance color that requires touch ups and toning on a regular basis to keep it looking great. A little dark root can actually look very rad, but if you wait too long in between touch ups it gets expensive and hard to keep the color consistent.

    Platinum hair is not for the faint of heart, but works surprisingly well on a variety of hair types and complexions. It can be soft or punky depending on the person, and even though it’s a current trend, it’s timeless.  Making it work largely has to do with getting the level and tonality just right, as well as having having an honest and experienced hairdresser that will give you reasonable expectations and not compromise your hair’s integrity. Excessively damaged hair doesn’t hold color or styling well, so keeping your hair healthy, moisturized, and freshly trimmed is a must for beautiful hair.

    As far as the cut goes, this is ideal for fine to medium hair with a wavy to straight texture because it will lay right with minimal styling, but could be modified to fit a variety of hair types. It could also be fantastic on curlier hair if it’s not too dense. This type of style is extremely low maintenance and can work on a variety of face shapes. I would modify the layers, length or fringe depending on my client’s features, keeping things square, rounded or triangular depending on what I want to accentuate about their individual look. The bangs and layers accentuate the features they are sitting at, so it’s important to take that into consideration.

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

    Always consult and work with a confident, honest, versatile, and expert hairdresser, and then trust their vision. The color is high maintenance, but the cut is not at all, so think about how much or little time you want to commit to your hair.

  • Perfectly Blended

    Ella Lavaggi / Instagram

    Q&A with Style Creator Ella Lavaggi

    Hairstylist @ Lisa’s Chop Shop


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

    This is a heavily textured asymmetrical pixie with a side-swept, short-to-long fringe. The back is graduated into a “V” shape. My favorite thing about it is the texture and the fringe! I love feathered hair.

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


    I love Ruezel Grooming Tonic as a prep before blow drying. It gives the hair grip and lift, is easy to use, and it smells fantastic. I blow dried the hair using my fingers in an upwards direction where I wanted to enhance the lift and texture (crown into top of head), and in a downwards direction where I wanted smoothness (fringe and sides). To finish, I used a Davines Texture Dust from the crown through the top to enhance lift, and a touch of Davines Moulding Clay to define points in the texture.

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    Straight or wavy hair would work best for this cut. If someone has curly hair, it is possible to recreate, but would require straightening daily. Medium to high density is required for this look, and a medium to light, or dimensional color will help the showcase the texture. Besides a little time styling in the morning with right products, it would be an easy-to-manage style for anyone. It can also be worn smooth and less edgy if you had to tone down the look from time to time, but I would say you have to like funky hair to love this cut.

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

    Consult with your stylist if this will be a big change for you. See if you have the right type of hair for this look, and ensure you are armed with the right styling products at hand to make this look easy to maintain. Then go for it!

  • Shadow Rooted

    Caleigh Giarra / Instagram

    Q&A with Style Creator Caleigh Giarra

    Hairstylist @ Element Salon in Nashville, Tn


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

    I would describe this look as a groomed beach wave. It’s soft and playful, yet smooth and polished. My favorite thing about it is it’s simplicity and versatility. It takes about ten minutes to style and is an acceptable look for the office or a night on the town.

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

    I always begin with a thermal protectant, and for this look I chose Kerastase Ciment Thermique because it is lightweight, yet very strengthening. Before drying the hair, I also added a couple pumps of Kerastase L’incroyable Blowdry which is a reshapable heat lotion that will help to keep your look for up to 72 hours, or help to change it (hence, “reshapable”). After blow drying smooth, I then targeted just the mid strands of the hair with a 1-inch curling iron. To finish, I sprayed a mist of Shu Uemura Sheer Laquer, followed by Shu Uemura Texture Wave.

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    Because this groomed beach wave look is so versatile, I think just about anyone can work it. For coarse hair, it’s an easy way to quickly tame and smooth down the hair while still keeping some body. For fine hair, it’s a quick way to add some ‘oomph’. I think this is a look that can show some spunk while not overdoing it. And best of all, this is a fabulous way to work that second day hair when you’re reaching for the dry shampoo!

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

    My tip for anyone considering this look is to get to know your curling iron/wand/flat iron, w whatever you prefer to curl with. Pay attention to the direction you are spinning the iron (away from the face is most flattering), and practice curling just that midsection while leaving the ends out. Lastly, don’t forget to comb through those curls with your fingers and add some texture spray!

    Q&A with Style Creator Taylor Meyers

    Hairstylist @ Fox and Jane Salon in NYC


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

    This blunt bob is both edgy and versatile. My favorite thing about it is that it’s so easy to style!

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

    I definitely recommend Badlands by R+Co for volume and texture.

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    This cut and style is definitely for someone who wants a little edge to their look, as well as someone who is confident with short hair. Different hair types would work with this look, it would just need to be styled differently. The model pictured here has naturally straight hair. 

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

    If you’re cutting off a lot of length I always say wait two weeks to be sure, then if you still want it, go for it!

  • Color Splash!

    Q&A with Style Creator Christine Conklin

    Hairstylist @ Details Salon in Sacramento, CA


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

    This is an asymmetrical stacked a-line bob. My favorite part is the hidden panel of white with hints of lavender. I love the way it compliments her natural deep brown color as well as the dramatic shape of the cut.

    Which products would you recommend for this look?

    This client has massively thick hair with tons of texture, and given the chance, it loves to become big and unruly. To manage this I would recommend a blow dry lotion like Bumble & bumble’s Repair Blow Dry. For finer hair or for those that are going the other way and trying to add volume, B&B’s All Style Blow Dry will work wonders while also providing the necessary control for this look.

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

    This cut can be done with all hair types, however the ideal candidate would be someone with medium thickness and straight to slightly wavy texture. The deep rich brown and cool colored secret panel look the most complimentary on someone with olive undertones in their skin.

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

    Make sure the cut is properly done and blended. Don’t be afraid to cut the back short and go for a very dramatic angle in the front. That’s what makes this look so fun! Also, wherever you decide to put the accent color panel, be sure that it will enhance the shape of the cut and not distract from the beautiful lines. Use diagonal slices when foiling so that the colors blend together instead of laying in stripes.

  • Long to Short Layers

    Q&A with style creator, Brenda Becerra
    Hairstylist @ Excellent Salon in San Fernando, CA


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

    This is a middle parted, long layered haircut with shorter layers in the front to frame the face. My favorite thing about the haircut are the layers in the front because they accentuate her face shape and show off her natural color and shine.

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

    The products I recommend to help maintain this look are the Soy Tri-Wheat Leave-in conditioner from Sexy Hair and the CHI Silk Infusion. Apply these to towel dried hair before the blow dry.

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    This middle part layered haircut and style would look best on anyone with a more round face to make their face appear longer. This cut would be perfect for people with straight hair who don’t want to spend much time on their hair in the morning because they can quickly pass a flat iron or curling iron in the front face frame section to give it a quick style or just wake up and go!

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

    What I recommend for someone who is considering this look is to make sure that they either have a middle part already or would be up to changing up their everyday hairstyle to a middle part. If they aren’t used to having a middle part, they might have to train their hair to part down the middle.

  • Ash Blonde Balayage

    Q&A with style creator, Frances Canola
    Stylist / Owner @ Bauhaus Hair in Orange, CA


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

    This is an ash blonde balayage. My favorite thing about it is the transition from the roots through her ends

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

    I used the Kenra hair color line, so I would highly recommend the Kenra Brightening Shampoo and Conditioner. This particular shampoo and conditioner both have a tint of violet added that is there to keep the blonde bright.

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    Ash blonde hair colors really compliment warm skin tones. This particular hair color placement would work on many different hair types because we left her natural base color the same. It’s a very low maintenance hair color that grows out very natural.

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

    Keep your hair as healthy as possible and avoid too much heat styling. This look requires a lot of highlighting that can compromise the hair. My favorite product for maintaining healthy hair is Olaplex 3 once a week. It’s also a great way to strengthen the hair prior to a salon visit.

  • Beautiful Waves

    Q&A with Style Creator Jennifer Keller

    Hairstylist @ Blush Salon in Saint Peters, MO


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

    This is a balayage with a pop of color. I’ve noticed more employers are becoming open to the idea of bright colors, so maybe a silly description would be work-appropriate fun hair!
    Which products would you recommend to help create and maintain this look?

    Two major components to creating this look are a bond builder additive and Pulp Riot Hair Color. To maintain this look, I’d use a professional shampoo and conditioner. I really love the Awapuhi Wild Ginger line by Paul Mitchell.

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    This look is good for someone who likes low maintenance. Because it’s balayage, a client can go much longer without needing to be touched up. The pop of color works great for someone who wants to add an exciting element to their hair, but doesn’t feel comfortable committing to an all over edgy look. For example, someone in a professional work setting or a mom.
    What’s your best tip for someone who’s considering this look?

    A few tips for someone considering this look would be to make sure your employer is okay with unnatural colors. Also know that pops of color like blue and purple last differently on each individual. Expect that part of the look to fade faster than the rest. And finally, getting highlights this light can sometimes take a few appointments, so be patient!

    Q&A with Style Creator Holly Seidel

    Hairstylist @ Winslow Salon in Kirkland, WA


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

    I like to think of this as a modern bombshell layered cut. This look is cut with sexy layers for volume and movement, with medium length bangs that frame the face. I love how it flatters most face shapes.

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

    The best products to use would be a blowout balm like Super Shine or Imperial Blow Out from Oribe   for shine, hold and heat protection.  After round brushing for some curve, I ran Brilliantine from Bumble and bumble through the dry ends to break things up and piece it out a bit.

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    This cuts literally works on any face shape because the layers around the face can be adjusted to different lengths to flatter different face shapes. Medium to thick texture is best for this layered cut.

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

    If you are considering this cut, keep in mind it will take some styling with a round brush or large rollers after “rough drying”  to give it the finished, curvy look. Also, many stylists offer free bang trims in between cuts which will keep this style looking fresh for a long time.

    Q&A with style creator, Grace
    Hairstylist @ J. Anthony Salon in Whittier, CA


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

    This look is a warm copper to blonde balayage. My favorite thing about this look is that we embraced her natural “red” hair by keeping her natural base.


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

    To create this look I recommend using a lower volume developer with your favorite bond builder/multiplier. I used 30 volume developer with Wella Blondor lightener and b3 Brazilian Bond Builder. I did not have to tone her hair because we wanted to embrace her warmer tones.

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    This look is best suited for somebody who wants a low maintenance hair color and has fair to medium light skin tones.

  • Relaxed Warm Weather

    Q&A with style creator, Dren Jeffcote
    Mobile Hair & Makeup Artist @ Hair and Makeup with Dren in Somerset, UK


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

    This is a very relaxed spring/summer hairstyle. My favorite part is the “barely there” waves which give an effortless yet fashionable look. These waves are very quick and achieved by taking random sections of hair, curling them leaving out the ends, then separating the curls with your fingers. To add a little height, take two sections from the front, gently backcomb them, then tie them in a knot and secure with hair pins.

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

    To help protect the hair I used a Tresemme Heat Protector Spray. This is a must when using heated products. I also used L’Oréal Pro Hairspray after curling. To finish off the look, run a small amount of Moroccan Argan Oil through the curls to give them a little shine.

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    This style is great on any hair type and because you’re only curling half of your hair, so it’s possible on short hair and long hair. If you have bangs, try texturizing them using a sea salt spray. This look works well for a day at the beach, a summer walk, and even a music festival! If you’re feeling brave, pick some fresh flowers and pop them in the top section for a cute boho look.

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

    Try this look on unwashed hair, that way your curls will last longer and appear fuller. Also try to pick random sections as opposed to a structured section technique The end result will look effortless and gorgeous at the same time!

  • French Braid Mohawk

    Q&A with style creator, Melissa Taylor
    Master Colourist & Stylist @ Artel Salon in Vancouver, BC Canada


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

    This French braid mohawk was done on mid-length hair, and the rest curled with waving tongs. My favorite thing about this style is that it works on all ages of women, and it shows interest with color placement!

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

    I recommend a dry shampoo or root powder and a hairspray. Before putting the braid in I used NÜLA’s Dry Shampoo for added hold, and Kevin Murphy Session.Spray as a setting spray. I love the combo of these products on most styles!

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    The type of person that can pull off this look is one with confidence! Any age or face shape can wear this look as long as you have long enough bangs to pull it back into a braid, as well as enough thickness to have some volume in both the braid as well as the rest of the hair left down. The woman in the photo is middle-aged and totally rocking the color and style!

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

    My best tip for someone wanting this style is to practice your braid in front of a mirror so you can see the width and height you want it to be. If you want a professional to do it for you, just bring in this photo!

  • Layered Pixie

    Q&A with style creator, Aaron Scott Lacy
    Artist @ theFactory in San Diego, CA


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

    This is a layered pixie cut. The fringe ties the entire look together. I cut her fringe using a freehand technique that promoted movement toward her right side by slide cutting her hair from short to long.

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

    I used the texture styling cream by the No. 4 product line. A matte finish texture cream with a subtle hold will help create separation within the individual hair strands to create a soft, feminine finish.

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    The type of person this haircut is most suitable for is a person who wants to wear their haircut as a style rather than focus on styling tools and products (round brushes, curling irons and hairsprays) to create their look. Less is more!

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

    Have the courage and confidence to own the look. Hair grows back, but if you are asking yourself how long it will take to grow back, you are not ready. Dare to be different!

    Q&A with style creator, Jessica Monkarsh
    Hairstylist @ Mane Fixation Salon in Studio City, CA


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

    This look is beachy, tousled, and sexy. It is definitely “California girl” hair! My favorite thing about this style is even though she’s a bright blonde, this color is still pretty low maintenance. She comes in about every three months for a touch up.

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

    Creating this look is easy! I took a 1 1/2-inch curling iron and starting taking different size sections and wrapping the hair around to get a wave that isn’t so uniform. Then I used my favorite texture spray by Unite and messed it up a bit for that textured, tousled look. It’s also super important to keep your hair healthy by using a good moisturizing conditioner, and I always recommend Olaplex step 3 to my clients to take home! It makes a huge difference.

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    This look can really work on almost anyone looking to be lighter in color overall, but you just may just need to tweak a few things depending on your hair type. For example, if you’re naturally a dark brunette you can totally have the same style of babylights, but instead of pale blonde, tone it down to more of a caramel color. This way you still get a nice, natural-looking blend and it will still be a low maintenance color. This style is for someone who wants an effortless look!

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

    Depending on your hair, be prepared to sit in the salon for a few hours! Babylights are time consuming to do. Proper home care is so so important. As a stylist, we want your hair to look great for as long as possible so sometimes that deep conditioner when checking out is worth the purchase, I promise!

  • Boho Vibe

    Q&A with style creator, Sara Rose
    Hairstylist @ Studio D Hair Salon in Norwalk, CT


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

    This look is romantic and effortless. It is easy to recreate and even gives a boho vibe! I love the loose and almost undone look about it.

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

    For this look, I used and recommend some clip-in extensions. When you have highlighted, balayaged or multi-toned hair, I recommend alternating between light and dark extension pieces to keep it looking natural and consistent throughout the braid. To prep for the extension to last all night, I’ll tease and spritz on the Resin Spray from Big Sexy Hair. It works like magic to create a strong base for the clip to slip into and hold all night long.

    After you put your extensions in, lightly spritz each section with a workable hairspray. Making sure to curl the extension with your hair to help them blend together. Then you braid and make sure to pull it apart as you go to keep the look loose. Finish by spraying all over with a good strong hold finishing spray.

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    This look would be great for almost anyone who likes the sweet, romantic, boho, or girl-on the-go look! I love it with all colors and most textures. If you’re hair is super curly/kinky, you’ll want to blow it smooth first since this is a more relaxed style. This is a great style to go from day to evening!

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

    If you’re using extensions, make sure build a good stop base for the clips to sit in. It makes everything so much easier knowing the hair isn’t going anywhere. Also whether you’re wearing extensions or not, make sure to pull the braid apart to loosen it a little. It makes the braid look bigger, fuller and more effortless.

  • Sophisticated Bob

    Q&A with style creator, Kelli Mason
    Owner/Creative Director @ LUX the Salon in Midland, MI


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

    This is a classic bob with a sophisticated edge. It has a very soft, shattered undercut at the nape to collapse the hair on top. I love the simple versatile cut paired with a bold color.

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

    I used all Surface hair care products for this look. First, a leave-in protein cream for smoothness and added strength. I added Crave, a matte clay based paste, to damp hair for flexible texture. Then to finish, I used Taffy wax which is a spray moldable and moisturizing wax.

    What type of person would this look work best for? (Hair types, face shapes, skin tone, lifestyle, personality etc)

    This look is best for someone who likes low maintenance and lived-in texture. It’s best for oval or heart shaped face shapes because it adds strength to the jaw with the square lines. It’s so versatile that a trendy blogger could wear it with beachy waves, or a powerful business woman could wear is smoothed out and sleek to meetings. It’s really for anyone wanting to look fresh.

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

    Color plays an important role in taking this cut from cute to sexy! Accent the cut with a few pops of balayage to really make it stand out

    Q&A with style creator, David Solis
    Colorist @ Kay’s Salon & Spa in San Antonio, TX


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

    I would describe this as a sophisticated unicorn look. This is for the woman that wants to have a little fun with their hair without going too crazy. I love everything about it! The mauve-ish money piece in the front graduating into the most beautiful lilac balayage is stunning. I really do love this one for its subtle playfulness.

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

    I would recommend Davines OI shampoo/Conditioner, along with their OI All-In-One Milk Leave-In Conditioner to help maintain the color. I would also recommend a refreshing of the lilac at home with either a Goldwell Soft Color Mousse or an EVO Conditioner mixed to your tone.

    What type of person would this look work best for?

    I think this look is versatile and can be worn by many face types and skin tones. It is definitely for the girl that likes to stand out without having to scream,” look at me!”

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

    For anyone considering this look, find a talented and creative colorist that can do both a beautiful balayage and vivid colors.
