This client wanted this look. I gave her long layers pulling all layers straight up. the fringe was notched lightly just below the eye level and sliced into to thin them out a bit. I used some root lift and styling cream and blow dried with a large round brush including the bangs. Then i took each section vertically and slid though them to soften the look. Some shine serum was used to make the ends look smooth.
My first client today wanted this look including the color. I cut her below shoulder length hair to the bottom of the neck level. I gave her uniform length layers from the back to the ears, leaving the fringe area and the sides out. I pulled diagonal sections fron the sides and brought them to a stationary point at the back to create slightly longer layers at the front.Then the hair was notched and texturized to create a soft but piecey look and feel to it. the fringe she wanted a slight angled side fringe. I sliced the fringe area to lighten them a little and shaped the front to frame her face nicely. For color whe used lightener and 20 vol peroxide and toned her with a 10 BN (Goldwell) colorance with a splash of clear to give a little shine back. I used some root lift and styling lotion and used a paddle brush to blowdry the hair in different directions using a little pomade wax on the ends to define a bit. She loved it and was very happy.
