    • How to Style: This hair color looks great with face framing layers. Smooth and straight, or tousled and wavy, this color can be worn in a variety of hairstyles.
    • Recommended Products: Kenra Platinum Color Care Shampoo & Conditioner
    • Additional Tips: Keep color looking fresh and shiny with hair gloss treatments every 4 to 6 weeks.

    URBAN WAVES

    • How to Style: Apply texture cream or beach spray to towel dried hair. Section hair into three or four large braids. Speed up the dry time with a blow dryer, or allow to air dry. Remove braids and enjoy sexy, relaxed waves.
    • Recommended Products: Sexy Healthy Hair Soy Renewal Beach Spray
    • Additional Tips: For more bounce, touch up the straighter pieces with a medium to large barrel curling iron.

    LAYERED BOB

    LONG WISPY BANGS

    • Recommended Products: Enjoy Shine & Smooth
    • Additional Tips: For this edgy, wispy bang it’s ideal for a hairdresser to point cut to add texture and reduce bluntness. Also, ask your hair stylist to go on the long side; you can always ask them to go shorter, but they can’t put length back on!

    EDGY SHORT (short!) STYLES

    Miley Cyrus Platinum Blonde Pixie Short

    • Who is it For: All hair types; Face Shapes that are Heart & Oval.

    • Recommended Products: KMS Hair Play Dry Wax

    Sometimes the best road to achieving a fabulous new hair makeover is to change hairstylists. Let’s face it, sometimes you and your stylists can get in  a rut after several years. That doesn’t necessarily mean your present hairstylist is incompetent, it just happens that the two of you can tend to move towards each others thinking until there isn’t and objective viewpoint any longer. By making a change in your hairstylist you automatically will have at least one of you who looks at you with fresh eyes. To help in that regard you might want to check out Barb’s article The Smart Girl’s Guide to Changing Hair Stylists.
