Alice had recently gotten highlights and color between foil packs and all she needed was a haircut today. Since it's so short, we opted to let the side bangs be a little longer on one side for a very slight asymmetrical appearance and also texturize the crown a bit for some added height.
We have found that Linda's fine textured hair holds it's shape best in this bob shape with very little layering and just a few short bangs. Base color is a warm dark blonde and this visit we added blonde highlights for a nice contrast.
Brunette hair color and razor used to create a short layered hair cut on very thick, course hair texture.
During our consultation, Kathy mentioned she liked the haircut of Kate (from 'Jon & Kate plus 8' reality show). While her hair was already shorter in some areas, mainly the front fringe area we could achieve the look by going with the shorter spiky texture in the crown which also helped give some height.
This layered inverted bob is low maintenance if Kate chooses not to straighten the natural wave in her fine textured hair. The soft layers throughout the cut and also framing her face adds versatility and creates more layering so that it looks great worn either wavy or straight.
Carol has lots of volume and body and a medium texture. During consultation she mentioned that it had gotten too heavy in the front and wanted more height in the crown.
Elise wanted basically a trim but her biggest concern was that her hair be thinned out quite a bit. After the shampoo, we did the basic cut first, then the long layering and removing bulk was best done on her dry, straightened hair because once her hair was dry it seemed to increase in volume by 3x. After testing several products to see which gave the most results, I found that Sexy Hair product called 'Smooth and Seal' was the best. A straightening shampoo and conditioner that is formulated to help smoothe wavy, absorbent hair and help lock out humidity would work well with continued use.
Today we used a semi-permanent color to add a warm richness and shine. Another benefit is added body as this color actually coats the hair and broadens the diameter slightly. Aimee is a new Mom and her Mom gave her a gift certificate for both the color and a hair cut. We looked at layered haircuts in photo books to find a picture that described best the type of layering and length she was thinking of. Several inches were removed to just below shoulder length and soft texturized layers were added to remove weight at the bottom and give more volume to the top layers, as well as long side swept bangs. Redken Smooth Down Heat Glide and Iron Silk were used.
