    3. Once hair is completely dry, separate into three sections, each side and back. Secure with clips.

    4. Turn your flat iron on and set it to the lowest heat setting for your hair type (it’s always best to have it set at the lowest heat setting to achieve a smooth look without damaging your tresses). Drop down 1 ½ inch sections and spray with a heat protection spray.

    5. Glide your flat iron through each section to smooth hair.

    6. Choose which side you want to accentuate by pulling back. Lift hair in sections and backcomb the root area to add additional volume. Smooth the section with the side of your comb or brush back towards the back of your head.

    7. Secure the section with bobby pins, a comb or a sparkly clip. Mist hair with your favorite hairspray and you are ready to go!

    tapered cut for square faces tapered cut for square faces

    How to Style:

    1. Apply thickening cream to damp hair. Separate the crown and front of hair and secure with clips. Blow dry the bottom section using a flat brush.

    2. Next, drop down top sections into smaller subsections (1 ½ – 2 inches). Blow dry these sections with a medium round brush.

    3. Define fringe area by misting with hairspray and using your fingers, or by applying a small amount of wax to fingers, rubbing them together to activate, and applying to your fringe.

    Recommended Products:

    One of my favorite thickening products is Pravana’s Density Volumizing foam. A little goes along way and it adds volume, hold and shine without build up or flaking.

    Best Face Shape & Hair Texture:

    Finer straight hair is perfect for this cut and color. A square face shape is best for this look.

    Tips:

    Sporting your blonde from underneath and letting it peak out is great for many reasons. When your new growth starts to come in, the darker color on top blends in better than the blonde. Also, with fine hair, having it a bit darker will help to make your hair appear thicker overall.

  • A Bit of Goddess

    Each of us have a bit of a goddess in us. Let your inner goddess shine through with this easy and sultry look.

    2. Section hair into three sections, one on each side and the back. Starting with the back section, take down two inch sections at a time. Mist with hairspray and slightly twist the sections.

    3. Twist the entire head and let sit for a few minutes while you add a small braid. Choose a 1 inch by 1 inch section towards the front of your hair. You may need to add hairspray to hair before you begin braid. Braid this section tightly and secure with a clear elastic.

    4. Using your hands, loosen twists and gently comb through with a wide tooth comb.

    Recommended Products:

    The key to this look is having a hairspray that won’t be too stiff, but still gives you great hold. Try Pravana’s Super Shape Hairspray. The more you spray the more hold you get, and it’s water soluble!

    Best Face Shape and Hair Texture:

    Square face shapes and a medium texture with a slight wave are best for this look.

    Tips:

    If you don’t have time to twist your hair, you can also use a very large curling iron. Slide the curling iron through sections, let them cool, then comb out.

    5. Place 1 to 2 drops of shine serum in your hands, rub them together, and apply to hair starting at the ends to smooth and make your hair super shiny!

    Recommended Products:

    Not all shine serums are created equally. You want to make sure that your choice does not contain silicones that will weigh the hair down and create buildup. Try Pravana’s Perfection Shine Serum. It’s water soluble, light and smells fantastic!

    Best Face Shape and Hair Texture:

    Square shaped beauties with fine to medium straight textured hair are perfect for this look.

    Tips:

    When requesting this haircut at your next appointment, make sure you discuss the angle, length of slightly shorter side and layers with your stylist. Let him/her know how steep of an angle you desire and also the length of your layers (especially in the back). Too short and it will add to your styling time and possibly create frustration.

    2. Dry hair using a large round brush or paddle brush. Make sure you have a good amount of tension to smooth/straighten your hair.

    3. After hair is completely dry, set your flat iron to the lowest heat setting for your hair type.

    4. Section your hair into 3 sections, each side and back, and secure with clips.

    5. Begin dropping down 1 ½ inch sections to flat iron. Mist with a heat protection spray, like Label.m Heat Protection Spray, before ironing. Hold your flat iron on a slight angle; this will give you a soft bend at the ends instead of being stick straight.

    6. Continue flat ironing your entire head, including your fringe if it needs it.

    Recommended Products:

    Pravana’s Relax Straightening Cream is heat activated. This means for second day hair, all you have to do is resmooth areas that may need it with a flat iron or dryer and round brush.

    Best Face Shape and Hair Texture:

    This look is for those ladies with medium to thick, wavy curly hair. The framing around the face complements square face shape.

    Tips:

    To achieve this color, ask your stylist for finely weaved highlights throughout your face and crown area. For a base color, request a “sandy” brown or beige that best suits your skin tone.

    How To Style:

    1. Apply your favorite straightening cream to damp hair.

    How to Style:

    1. Apply a styling lotion or mousse with a medium to firm hold in damp hair.

    2. Blow dry hair with a medium round brush making sure to direct hair off deep part over to one side.

    3. When hair is completely dry, turn on a set of hot rollers. Roll hair in small sections on medium sized rollers.  Continue until you reach the top front section. Switch to using the largest roller in your set and rolling all curlers down and back.

    4. Let hot rollers completely cool before removing. With a wide tooth comb, slowly comb through curls. Smooth front section off to the side and mist with hairspray. Take the other side and secure it behind your ear with bobby pins or jeweled clip.

    How To Style:

    1) Apply a volumizing foam to damp hair. Blow dry using a medium to large round brush, lifting roots towards the ceiling and following along with dryer.

    2. Once hair is completely dry, plug in your ¾ inch curling iron or curling wand. Section hair into 3 sections and secure  them with clips.

    3. Bring down 2 inch sections at a time. Wrap hair around curling iron or wand (being careful to not burn your finger tips) and curl away from your face.

    4. Let curls cool completely, then flip your head upside down and shake the hair out with your hands. Mist with your favorite shine spray.

    Tips:

    Looking for a new color that is easy to maintain? Ombre is for you! Go close to your natural color with a soft transition into a caramel or blonde shade and you’ll go weeks longer between salon visits.

    Bold, beautiful, soft, or subtle, squared faced beauties have endless options with their hair. Trying something new is as easy as a trip to the salon, either for a new haircut, color, product or tool. Just consult with your stylist to find the right look for you.
