This style shows us the timeless beauty and grace –– and sex appeal! –– of setting hair into a romantic, cascading, flowing shape. The super-precessed platinum blonde, in this case, actually helps to create texture because it will have lots of grip. Styling like this can be done with a curling iron for speed, or with rollers if the set needs to last a few days.

This is an archetypal long layered cut, hugely popular because it’s such a feminine, easy-to-wear hairstyle. Layers really help to create the feeling of thick, healthy hair, while side-swept bangs have shape and movement, and are a natural fit for her face, accentuating her strong cheekbones. The cool blonde tone completes a classic and chic look.


This dark to light caramel ombre with long layers and beautiful bangs is casual, trendy, and street. Looks like this are great for girls about town because you can spend the time to create something special, or style naturally and still look amazing. For special interest with minimum effort, try scrunching the ends as they dry –– creating that tousled, textured beachy waves effect.

Pulling hair away from the face is a brave and beautiful thing to do because it exposes all of you –– no place to hide! This version, part up, part down, is a sleek and sophisticated way to vary hairstyle. A fairly high updo like this is more of a nighttime look –– it gives lots of lift and drama, and emphasizes cheekbones, for elegance refined.

Wow! What a wonderful example of creating perfect face-framing shape with a dramatic one-length cut. This type of style elongates features like cheekbones and chin, while vivid, center-part bangs portray a powerful, polished woman. The whitish-ash blonde color tone adds vibrancy, texture, depth, and contrast.
