HOW-TO: Create an A-List Faux Bob

Jennifer Anniston, Reese Witherspoon, Jenny McCarthy and Chelsea Handler are just some of the A-listers with sexy new bobs. It’s a fresh look for spring/summer, but some clients just aren’t into the big chop. Ruth RocheArtistic Ambassador for Pureology Serious Colour Care, suggests creating a faux bob using braids and lacing to take the length up – it will put a spring in any girl’s step. See the video on HERE!

“A faux bob is a great look to offer a client for a special event, it’s not going to be a look they want to tackle every day,” says Roche.

STEP 1: Section the top area of the head and pin up.

STEP 2: The bottom hair will be braided into four vertical sections with three strand braids – right over center, left over center, etc., adding to both sides as you go and securing an elastic about 4” from the bottom of each section. This flattens the area, creates a base for pinning and brings the length up.

STEP 3: Tuck the braids up and secure with a pin, leaving the last 4” to hang.

STEP 4: Lace ends to shorten and expand hair to spread it out.

STEP 5: Drop the top portion of hair, lace it to shorten the length and gather and pin hair up so the ends are roughly the same length as the ends of the braids.

STEP 6: Any shorter top layers or fringe (depending on length/type of original haircut) can be arranged to fall over the previous layers to blend.

STEP 7: Finish with Pureology Strengthening Control zero dulling hairspray for soft touchable hold

The 40’s Making a Comeback: Rolls, Flat Waves, Low Side Parts

The 40's Making a Comeback: Rolls, Flat Waves, Low Side Parts

Via ModernSalon.Com

According to Wade Blackford, a KEVIN.MURPHY Ceative Team & Style Master Educator and Creative Team Educator for Chumba Concept Salons in Australia, the ‘40s will make a big come back in summer 2014 with rolls off the face and onto the face, flat waves and very low side parts.

“Don’t think big think small,” says Blackford. “You will see messy or neat hair, but it won’t be big. Elegance is still in. Think haircut shapes from Mad Men but stylized so they don’t flatter the housewife like in the past few seasons, but more femme fatale.

‘70s Rock ‘n’ Roll haircuts are on their way back with a return to texture and a more natural feel. Color will move back toward more natural tones while brights and fluorescents “are on their way out.” Reds and Corals will be us for another season and will be featured strongly editorially.
