This messy, editorial-looking bun offers a sophisticated twist on a classic top-knot updo by styling with a crimper to add texture and volume. Styles like these are great for bad hair days or whenever there is a rush to be ready. Keep the knot on or above the crown to accentuate cheekbones and eyes in a striking fashion.

On first glance, the style looks like a long, layered bob, but it is much more dynamic than that!  Using soft asymmetry, undercutting, and disconnections this creative razor-cut has space and texture built within a rounded, deconstructed, shaggy shape. The different lengths of hair hit different spots for a soft and shimmering look, especially when combined with the blistering red color glaze.

 A cute bohemian braid is a great way to accent any style. A classic layer cut and quintessential golden blonde helps girls have more fun, but it is the beauty of the entwine that creates the special interest. We love this version because, rather than the usual three hair strands, it’s woven with only two, making it so easy to do.

This sandy blonde color features cool tone highlights to lighten the overall look. The parting is slightly off-center, which is a great way to create a face frame without splitting the face right down the middle. The layers sit just below the shoulder for great balance and proportion.
