Multi-toned, candy-coated hair colors have reached the vanguard of beauty trends. A departure from single tones and classic high and low lights, they offer a whimsical touch of individualized style. But taking the plunge on such a unique look does require bravery. One way to build up the courage is to educate oneself on how to achieve the look. So we were delighted to receive this submission from Mary Ducey, colorist at the world-renowned ARROJO NYC. Not only did Mary send the image, she sent meticulous instructions for creating the look. So whether you are a girl about town intent on a similar style (in which case take the steps to your professional), or a colorist who would love to try the technique, you can learn how it is done in the style notes.

We saw a lot of bobs last year. Karlie Kloss, Jennifer Aniston, Dianna Agron and many other celebrities embraced the classic style, wearing versions short and long, tousled and sleek. This year bobs will continue to be a popular choice but we expect to see more dramatic versions that hover around the chin instead of the shoulder. Shorter bobs feel light and daring, with a lovely vintage influence. Add some swing to your step with a flapper-inspired crop. Read the style notes find out how. –– Laura Martin
