Stuck between long and short?


by ELIZABETH STENSTROM @ L Salon



1. The inspiration behind the look?
The inspiration behind this look was to take a classic style to the next level and give it an icy platinum blonde with a modern edge. Itís simple yet sexy and fashion-forward.

2. Does it have dress down/dress up options?
Go from casual to date-night ready with little effort. This smooth look is always on-trend and great for everyday wear but is chic enough to be dressed up with nighttime makeup and a pair of high heels. Add a few curls for a tousled look and you are ready to go.

3. Which hair types does it work for? i.e. fine/thick, etc
This look will produce stunning results on both fine and thick hair types. The one length style gives the appearance of gorgeous fullness on fine hair. On the other hand, women with thick hair can also benefit by getting rid of heaviness and length. Also, by thinning out the bulk from underneath, this look will be high style with easy care.

4. High or low maintenance?
This sexy one length bob requires little effort to style and is an easy look to achieve. It is simple, yet the a-line shape and the asymmetry of the haircut give this sophisticated low maintenance style interest and edge.

5. What face shapes best suit this style?
The sharp lines and points on this haircut best suits a round face shape for its narrowing and slimming effects. But this look can also be adjusted to suit a longer face shape by softening and rounding off those sharp points and by keeping width and fullness on the sides.

6. Any important blow dry/styling tips?
To blow dry, start by applying volumizing mousse at the roots. Blow dry beginning at the crown area and lift at the roots for height and body. Next, gently use your fingers to encourage the ends to go under. When almost dry and your body and shape is there, polish off the look by using a round brush just at the ends to smooth them to tie the whole look together. Tip: To really show off those points and lines, use a flat iron just at the tips to exaggerate the look.

7. Best products for the style and colour?
The best product to use is a volumizing roots on damp hair before the blow dry. Finishing products also do wonders for this look. Use a flexible hold hairspray to keep the look together. A shine spray at the very end really vamps up blondes. It does the trick for the ultimate polish on this style.
