Platinum Chic

Q&A with style creator, Karen Kincade
Master Hairstylist / Balayage Specialist @ Ricci Hair Co. in Alberta, Canada

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

I would describe this look as pearly platinum chic. One of the trends for the fall/winter season we’re seeing is the sleek and polished straight styles with a center part. This rooty platinum blonde is really on-trend as well. Adding some dimension at the root gives that beautiful contrast and appeal to the color. It is also more low maintenance than a global blonde.

My favorite thing about this style, beyond the beautiful length, is the shine that comes out when styled sleek and straight.

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

This look is easy to recreate, but product and technique are key. Your base should start with the choice of shampoo, conditioner or masques needed for your hair type. For fine to medium textures, I would recommend Elixir Ultime shampoo and conditioner by Kerastase. Coarse hair needs more nourishment, so Discipline shampoo and masque would be perfect, and it also has humidity protection built in.

With this look, you want to maintain that gorgeous volume while having a soft and luxurious shine on the ends. Start by prepping the hair with a smoothing cream, as well as a heat protectant. I recommend Smooth.Again by Kevin Murphy and Nectar Thermique from Kerastase. Use a body building mousse applied at the root and a light dose on ends to add volume and hold. I use Body.Builder by Kevin Murphy. I follow that up with a drop of oil for shine and nourishment before and after I blow dry. I love Elixir Ultime from Kerastase!

I blow dry using a large round brush. Make sure to get that beautiful volume by heating and cooling off each section. I roll each section on the base, then release and follow with a cold shot down the cuticle for optimal shine. You may use a flat iron to smooth the ends if needed. I finished this look with Shimmer.Shine from Kevin Murphy to enhance the brilliant color and add shine without weighing hair down.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

Clients best suited for the sleek and middle parted style would most likely be those with an oval, round or oblong face shape, but you can tweak to fit anyone! When achieving a sleek hairstyle though, you must think if it will fit your lifestyle. Say you have thick, curly and unruly hair. This look would not be easy for you accomplish every morning without hours of work. For those clients with thick, coarse hair, I would suggest booking a blowout with a stylist. For those with fine to medium textured hair, it is easier to do at home yourself and get through the hair in a timely manner.

As for the color, this is a balayage babylight combination with a shadow root. This color is made for any blonde who wants to see more dimension while still having the impact of being platinum. My client comes in every eight to ten weeks for her root touch-up. We maintain the integrity of her hair using Olaplex treatments followed by Kerastase Fusio Dose treatments in the salon to keep the strength and beauty of hair when coloring and heat styling. Nourishing your hair with treatments and proper product will always make for more beautiful hair!

Precision Volume

Q&A with style creator, Chelsea Barefoot
Independent Contractor @ A. Anderson Hair and Associates in Brandon, FL


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

I would describe this look as a precision cut that is voluminous and blunt. Usually I give my clients some layering for more volume, however there are some of my clients who get their added volume by removing all of the extremely fine hair at the bottom.

My favorite thing about this look is that you can essentially “add hair” by removing it!

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

Since this client has very fine hair, I used Redken Guts10 root lifter at her roots, and Redken Velvet Gelatin 07 for the ends before I the blow dry. After dring, I finished the ends with a tad bit of Redken Frizz Dismiss serum.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this look for a client who has fine hair and wants a voluminous, fuller look. Maybe they have been trying to grow their hair out long and it’s not growing in as long or as fast as they wish it to. In that case, simply remove all the ends up to where their hair is the thickest.

Most of the time when I do this my clients, they say it looks like I somehow gave them more hair!

Asymmetrical Bowl Bob

Asymmetrical Bowl Bob hairstyleInstagram @scotttomlinson

Q&A with style creator, Scott Tomlinson
Senior Stylist @ VAIN in Seattle, WA


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

I would describe this haircut as an asymmetrical bowl bob. I’ve always enjoyed cuts that juxtapose precise, clean lines with texture, and this cut is a great example of that.

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

First, use a leave-in conditioner to soften the hair. To style, use a flat brush and wrap the hair around the head, following it with the blow dryer on low speed and low heat. Using low heat and speed will allow the cut to dry without redirecting the roots, which would distort the shape.

After drying, add a bit of wax to define and control the clean lines and accentuate the shattered texture.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This look would work best on straight to mildly wavy hair. Fine textures work best, but as you can see from the photo, the cut can be done on coarse hair as well (although it is much more difficult to execute on that hair type!).

Longer faces will do better with this cut as the bangs will shorten the length of the face and the bowl side creates a wider silhouette. This cut is quick and easy to style, but it does need to be styled every day.

Power Lob

Q&A with style creator, Scotty Williamson
Owner / Educator / Cut & Color Specialist @ The Fix Hair Parlor in Scottsdale, AZ


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

This look is known as the “lob”. I love this cut for its timeless look! The lob allows the client to not have to commit to the shortness of the classic bob, but have the same look. It also allows the client to be able to pull it back if they’re at the gym, hiking, etc. I think bobs and lobs are empowering looks that exude confidence, which is very sexy.

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

My salon is a TIGI concept salon. We carry a variety of Bed Head, Catwalk, and S Factor products. On this client, I used Bed Head Urban Antidotes Recovery shampoo and conditioner. For a cutting lotion, I applied Catwalk Hairista Cream leave-in conditioner. For the blow dry, I combed in Catwalk Blowout Balm. Afterward, Ismoothed out the style with more Blowout Balm.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This cut looks great on most clients. If the client has a more round face shape, I recommend keeping a little more length in front and/or add some asymmetry. If you’re dealing with a curly haired client, I suggest leaving more length and adding layers.

This was my first time cutting this client’s hair. She has medium to fine, straight textured hair, which is perfect for this cut! We took about ten inches off which made this cut extra fun. She had existing grown-out bangs that we cleaned up, leaving the corners longer. We kept it one length (no layers) to keep a strong baseline and make it look as thick as possible. I personalized with minimal point cutting around the baseline for a touch of softness.

Geometric Feel

Geometric Feel hairstyleInstagram @_dylus_

Q&A with style creator, Arzu Dylus
Hairstylist / Make-up Artist @ DYLUS in Frankfurt, Germany


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

This look is a sleek look with a nice feature. The hair from the forehead and the sides are fixed with a tiny elastic band underneath the hair in the back. This gives volume in the back and a very nice shape from the side with a geometric feeling because of the lines and as a result of the straightness.

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

Tey TecniArt Liss control – L’Oréal Professionnel to straighten unruly hair with heat protection, as well as TecniArt Air Fix Spray – L’Oréal Professionnel to fix the hair, making it look shiny and sleek. This one is to be brushed out easily.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This style is perfect for clients who like sleek looks and clean shapes. It’s a cool style for straight-cut hair without many layers. It works well with fine hair and gives an amazing look with less effort but much effect. It is ideal for oval and small face shapes.

Long and Sleek Shag

Q&A with style creator, Christina Liberatore Gabel
Celebrity Hairstylist / Colorist @ Riccardo Maggiore Salon in New York City, NY


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

I would consider this look to be a modern shag. What I like most about it is that it has an edge to it. It makes a statement. To me, a woman who wears this look has confidence, power, a sense of style and strength. A little sass and a little rock and roll are my favorite things about this style.

Depending on your hair type and texture, the upkeep and styling techniques are simple. The cut grows out well so as it gets longer, it takes on a slightly different style but still looks fresh. You can always run into your salon and ask your stylist for a bang trim if necessary.

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

If your hair is coarse or has a little frizz, you can use a smoothing balm or serum before and/or after blow drying. For wavy or slightly curly hair, you can use a straightening iron. Always use a heat protectant to protect your hair from ironing or blow dry styling. Finish off with a shine spray or pomade to add texture to the ends.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This style works best for people who have straight hair with fine to medium thickness. It is great for oval, heart and round shaped faces as long as fringe is proportionately placed.

I feel that whatever your lifestyle is, this style can work for you. Even if your occupation is a conservative one, you can pull up the back of your hair into a chignon and leave the front fringe out to give you a polished look with a sense of flair.

Soft Boho Twist

Q&A with style creator, Shannon
Hairstylist/Color Specialist @ Design Visage in Costa Mesa, CA


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

This look is a soft boho twist. What I love most about it is that it’s a simple and effortless overall look you can wear for a special occasion or everyday wear.

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

On dry hair, I sprayed the Redken Windblown 05 (from root to end) for texture and grip. I used Puff Me in the root area to create volume. Once I created texture, I started twisting, pulling and pinning the hair into place. I finished the look by spraying Kenra Platinum Working Spray for a natural finished look with manageable hold.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I would recommend this look for the client with straight, fine hair. Shoulder length or longer hair is ideal. Any face shape works because of the softness of the look. This hairstyle is really for the modern bohemian woman.

Chic Shag

Q&A with style creator, Samuel Martinez
Stylist / Colorist @ FRINGE Salon in Santa Monica, CA


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

This chocolate shag sports three shades of cocoa and sports medium to long layers that frame the face.

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

To get these sleek tresses, I blow dried using a large paddle brush in a downward direction using Aveda Glossing Straightener. I finished up with Bumble & bumble Dryspun Texture Spray.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This chic shag cut is ideal for oval to oblong face shapes and is very versatile for any woman on the go.

Versatile Shag With Fringe

Q&A with style creator, Mark Garrison
Owner / Stylist @ Mark Garrison Salon in New York, NY


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

I would call this a modern shag with bangs, or a fringe as it’s called in Europe. It’s layered a lot all over in order to give a nice, slim shape that’s not bulky around the face, sides and back.The layers allow the hair to move.

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

If leaving it in natural texture, I would use Arrojo Curl Cream. You can dry with a blow dryer or let it dry naturally.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This cut is good for any person because it is so versatile. Like every cut, it has to be personalized for the individual in regard to the overal length, more or less bangs, etc.

It’s very versatile in terms of lifestyle. This is a great look for someone who wants to do wash-and-wear with very little styling attention. It’s also a good option for someone who is willing to put in some energy to smoothing it out. Again, very versatile!

My philosophy with every haircut is that it should look amazing drip dried, be flattering to that individual, and be versatile Everything else is optional! Whether you want to put energy into styling or not, the right products always help.

Trendy Mid-Length Bob

Q&A with style creator, Brittany Miller
Owner / Hairstylist @ Curl Up & Dye Salon in Calhoun, GA


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

This is a medium length bob. My favorite thing about this look is its flexibility. It compliments many face shapes while still maintaining the ability to change up the style with a curling iron, flat iron or braids.

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

I recommend a volumizing spray on damp hair and a big round brush for a nice blowout. Finish off with a spray clay for some dry texture.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This type of style works great for someone seeking versatility in a short haircut. My favorite texture for this cut would be finer hair, but it can be cut on all hair types. It looks great on oval, heart, or even round face shapes, and is perfect for someone seeking a trendy, modern style with flexibility and low maintenance.

Sassy Shag

Q&A with style creator, Laura Aszman
Hairstylist / Hoop Dance and Nia Instructor @ Beauty In Movement in Portland, OR


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

I would describe this cut as having sassy, shaggy layers. My favorite thing about it is the fringe and the layers around the face. I love adding soft, sexy pieces underneath so when my clients pull their hair up, there is a little more to play with and add to their upstyles.

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

I love Kevin Murphy products! To maintain and recreate this look, I would recommend using Body.Builder on wet hair, followed by a little Powder.Puff at the root on dry hair and Undressed on the ends to help tame any flyaways.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

The type of client this cut would be perfect on is someone with naturally straight hair who doesn’t like to fuss too much. In my opinion, this cut would look great on most face shapes. For someone with an oblong face, I would make sure I brought up the length a bit in order to achieve the best look for that shape.

Modern Edge

Modern Edge hairstyleInstagram @a_sharp_86

Q&A with style creator, Alison Sharp
Owner / Master Stylist @ A Sharp Studio in Palm Harbor, FL


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

I would describe this look as modern edge. My favorite thing about it is how it has dual identity and can be worn so many different ways.

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

To maintain this look, I recommend Redken’s Pillow Proof Primer. It helps speed up drying time and acts as an amplifier for products. I also recommend #10 Full Frame for body and #23 Forceful for a humidity resistant hold.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

The type of the client that this is a good look for would be someone that is always looking for the next up-to-date look. Fine to medium hair texture is recommended and a triangular or diamond face shape would complement this cut very well.

Asymmetric Haircut

Asymmetric Haircut hairstyleInstagram @shannelmariano

Q&A with style creator, Shannel Mariano
Hairstylist @ R Salon in Phoenix, AZ


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

This asymmetric haircut is shorter in one side and gradually gets longer toward the other side. It is one length, meaning it doesn’t have any layers or graduation. This makes this haircut heavy and blunt.

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

I recommend Alterna’s Bamboo Anti-Breakage Thermal Protection Spray. It smoothes the hair, fights frizz, and protects hair from heat up to 428 degrees while you blow dry and when you flat iron afterwards. This allows you to get that sleek look every day minus the damage.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This haircut would look best on all face shapes with hair that is thin to medium in density.

Fantasy Bob

Fantasy Bob hairstyleInstagram @lynzstyles

Q&A with style creator, Lynz Russell
Hair Artist @ Headlines The Salon in Encinitas, CA


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

I would describe this look as an edgy, classic textured bob with a fantasy color melt. What I love about this look is that it’s a classic shape which makes it timeless, then the fantasy color makes it very trendy and current. It’s also an extremely versatile cut and color. By simply using different products and drying techniques, the styling possibilities are endless.

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

Maintaining this look is super easy! All of my fantasy toned guests leave with a custom blended conditioner to keep color fade to a minimum. Leave-in conditioner is key to keeping the hair healthy and soft, and my favorite is Supershine Light from Oribe because it’s so weightless.

Depending on hair texture, any sort of smoothing product is helpful to keep the hair smooth while blow drying with an air condenser attachment and a large boar bristle brush to help distribute product and oils throughout the hair to keep it smooth. Finally, if a flatiron is needed to help the smoothing process, a good heat protectant should be used to help protect the hair from heat damage. I love Soft Lacquer from Oribe.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This look is perfect for anyone that wants to make a statement with their hair and have versatility with their look. A client that doesn’t like to spend a lot of time styling their hair can wash and sea salt spray the hair to create lots of texture and beach waves. A client that is committed to styling can spend more time blow drying, flat ironing, and/or curling the hair to create a desired look.

This haircut is perfect for fine to medium haired clients because the weightline creates the illusion of having thicker, fuller hair and it really would look great on anyone! I might shy away from recommending it to someone with a super round face shape because it could be easy to over shape the hair tucked under to enhance the roundness. With that said, a symmetrical heavy fringe or side fringe could alleviate that.

Soft and Modern

Soft and Modern hairstyleInstagram @hwhairdesign

Q&A with style creator, Hannah Woodgates
Salon Owner & Artistic Designer @ Hannah Woodgates Hair Design in Bude, Cornwall


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

This is a very effortlessly soft and modern look. It’s the perfect length for versatility and I love how it falls into the perfect shape every time.

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

I’d always recommend R+Co as I use their products religiously! They have Park Lane which is the most amazing blowout balm that gives the hair a soft textured feel with tons of volume. I also always finish off with their Death Valley Dry shampoo. I love to use it as a styling product and it leaves no white residue. This style can also work well smooth and sleek, so a nice serum and shine spray would also do the trick!

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I find this style suits almost anyone as the length can be made to fit any face shape. It’s low maintenance and can still easily be put up which appeals to a lot of my clients. It’s also great for clients that are great with styling their own hair as plaits, curls and twists work really well with this look.

Sharp A-Line

Q&A with style creator, Andrea
Senior Stylist / Salon Owner @ Absolutely Fabulous in Blackwood, South Wales, UK.


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

I love the sharp, dramatic angle used to create this a-line bob.

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

This style needs to have a healthy, luxurious finish. We used Joico Color Therapy Oil to give moisture, strength, shine and softness.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

A bob can work for everyone. It can be adapted to suit all hair types, face shapes and lifestyles.

Sleek Half Up Style

Sleek Half Up Style hairstyleInstagram @hair_by_jil

Q&A with style creator, Jil Ortíz
Hairstylist @ Deco Salon & Spa in Bay View, WI


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

This is a great half up style for any occasion. This particular one was for an elegant afternoon party. It’s sleek and simple, but also very polished. It’s also fun and not too stuffy and moves perfectly fromt day to night.

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

I primarily used Redken’s Triple Take hairspray. I use it as a starch before ironing the hair, as well as throughout the styling process. I also used a bit of the Rusk Shining Spray to finish.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I think this is a great style for just about anyone. I would just make minor adjustments according to hair type and texture. I think this look works wonderfully at the office as well as a night out.

Classic Sleek Bob With Bangs

Classic Sleek Bob With Bangs hairstyleInstagram @fionastylez

Q&A with style creator, Fiona Figueroa
Hairstylist Assistant @ Hair Rules Salon in New York, NY


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

This haircut is a classic bob with bangs. My favorite thing about this look is that it is timeless and capable of being customized to flatter any face shape.

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

I love to cocktail products for sleek, smooth styles. My favorite cocktail is Arrojo Cream Whip and Defrizz Serum. For this style, I applied both products into the hair while wet and blow dried straight. I then went in with a flat iron to smooth the hair further and add shine.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this look for clients who are okay with a little maintenance in the morning. You can definitely “get up and go” with this cut, but achieving a sleek look will surely require picking up a hot tool. For minimal upkeep, the best hair type for this style are clients with fine to medium density hair and a straight texture.

Dimensional Layers

Dimensional Layers hairstyleInstagram @hairby_gina95

Q&A with style creator, Gina Eldridge
Hairstylist @ Dellaria in Somerville, MA


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

My favorite thing about this look is the dimension. I love how it is so blended from her natural color to her blonde ends. All the tones in her hair go so well together, playing off of her natural brown color.

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

I recommend my favorite purple shampoo, Framesi Color Lover Dynamic Blonde. It is so pigmented and will keep her blonde from getting brassy. As for styling products I used Bumble and bumble Invisible Oil primer because it adds tons of moisture back into the hair and protects against UV rays, also serving as a thermal protectant.

To recreate this look, I would balayage and then use a toner to assure it is all blended. As for the style, I just blow dried her hair straight and then flat ironed her hair to stop any frizz.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This type of look is great for pretty much anyone. From curly or straight hair that is thick or fine, this style just works! For the cut, I gave her some face framing angles to frame and elongate her face, along with some long layers in the back to prevent a solid line across her back. Depending on hair texture, this could be a wash and go type of haircut/style, or if you need it to be more “finished” look, it wouldn’t be very difficult hair to style.

Simple Yet Bold

Simple Yet Bold hairstyleInstagram @hairby_joebear

Q&A with style creator, Joe
Hairstylist @ Trephin Salon in Boston, MA


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

I would describe this look as simple yet bold. My favorite thing about this haircut would be the juxtaposition of strong and soft. The strong line of her fringe draws attention to and frames the softness of her face.

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

I recommend a volumizer and shine serum to recreate this look at home. On damp hair, I used Kevin Murphy’s Body.Mass at her roots to create volume and fullness, followed by Kevin Murphy’s Young.Again serum from midshaft and ends to add shine, nourish, and protect the ends from heat. I then blow dried her hair smooth and straight using a boar bristle flat brush.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This style works best for someone with hair that is fine to medium thickness, with petite features, and who is looking to make a statement while having a style that is easy to manage with minimal upkeep. The blunt line at the ends gives the illusion of fullness as well as makes growing it out a breeze, while the blunt line of the bangs creates a bold style around the face.

Smooth Layers

Smooth Layers hairstyleInstagram @beautifullife9

Q&A with style creator, Maggie
Master Stylist @ Folawn’s in San Antonio, TX


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

This is a smooth look with some texture to it. The long layers keep it from looking too busy for women who still want long hair, but want to keep it more conservative.

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

In order to keep the smoothness of this style, I recommend the Aveda Smooth Infusion Style Prep to give the hair frizz control no matter the weather. I also used the Volumizing Tonic at the crown to give it lift and body. We want the hair to be smooth but still have some movement to it. We finished the look off with Aircontrol hairspray. It sprays on dry and keeps the hair soft to the touch while still giving it some light hold.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This look could work for many adult women who enjoy having long hair. It’s professional and not to busy to wear or create distraction.

This is a great look for women with fine hair. The long soft layers prevent the hair from feeling or looking thin at the ends while still giving it some movement.

Multi-Dimensional Blonde

Q&A with style creator, Amanda
Color Specialist / Art Director @ Toni and Guy Sam Hughes in Tucson, AZ


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

I would describe this look as a multi-dimmensional blonde. What I really like about this look is that my client has a darker natural color, and by incorporating multiple tones it gives the hair tons of dimension, especially when styling.

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

I recommend a high quality salon grade shampoo and conditioner that  is moisturizing and color-safe , along with a purple shampoo . I also recommend that my clients take home Olaplex #3 and to use it every week in between services to keep the hair healthy.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This color works for someone who has darker hair, but results like this take multiple sessions. Leaving some of her natural out helps it keep dimension . I

This is a higher maintenance look, so coming into the salon every eight weeks is recommended, along with a proper hair care routine at home too. Keep heat styling to a minimum and get regular trims to prevent split ends.

Uniquely Simple

Uniquely Simple hairstyleInstagram @hairneko

Q&A with style creator, Lucy Long
Hairstylist @ Hair By Lucy in Salt Lake City, UT


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

I would describe this look as unique, individualistic, and yet fairly simple. I love the face framing.

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

I recommend New Wash by Hairstory to everyone. It doesn’t contain sulfates, which even many so called sulfate-free shampoos often contain. On the other hand, Davines’s Love Hair Cream is amazing for keeping hair smooth and sleek Their Dede moisture spray is great as well.

Bumble and bumble has a nice selection of hairsprays if you need to tone down flyaways. If you are using a blow dryer, I always recommend using a heat protectant such as Kerastase’s Ciment Thermique. If you’re wanting some volume, Davines’ Volumizing Mousse applied to the roots works very well.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I think this style will work best for those who have an oval, heart or diamond face shape. However, my face is a bit rounder as my jawline is less prominent and I have also pulled off this style in the past! Don’t let that limit you. I did feel like for my face shape that longer sweep bangs helped elongate my face and emphasize my jawline. I think this type of face framing looks amazing on anyone.

As for hair types, straight hair will be the easiest to style this way, but I think people with wavy and curly hair could also pull it off whether you want to wear your hair natural or not. My tip for clients who want some texture but still want some control is to only style your bangs straight, using a roundbrush and brushing back and forth to create a bevel.

If you want more volume, pull your bangs up with the round brush while still directing air downward into the shape you want. This style will work with a lot of hair types, however if you have very fine, straight hair, this style can look a bit flat.

If you’re wanting volume, tip your head upside down and blow dry your roots away form your scalp. Some teasing and hairspray can help if you’re looking for even more volume.

Platinum Undercut

Platinum Undercut hairstyle Instagram @gabrielaaronhair

Q&A with style creator, Gabe Creviston
Hairstylist/Balayage Specialist @ Rick’s Island Salon & Day Spa in Marco Island, FL


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

My client told me she wanted platinum-silver hair with an undercut, but other than that gave me free reign. I was able to put a lot of texture into the cut, which I love to do because it almost gives the style a life of its own. We also shaved some intricate designs into the undercut to give it a little flair.

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

I definitely recommend the Matrix Brass Off shampoo to maintain the color. It’s my absolute favorite for silver colors or ash blondes. I also use the Redken Wax Blast spray to enhance texture.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This style is great for anyone who is constantly struggling with their hairstyle. The texture gives it movement and style, and the undercut can get rid of a lot of unnecessary bulk in the hair while adding a bit of edge.
