A classic bob is all about clean lines and crisp edges, but this beautiful variation on the trend does away with hard lines, creating a breezier shape. The softened ends release texture for beachy waves or a piecey swish. Thick, lightly textured bangs add visual density and demure sexiness.

What if you could change your hair color at home, in minutes, with no damage? It may sound impossible but it may soon be a reality thanks to a new technology that can change your hair color by etching micro patterns into your strands. A flat iron or similar tool would carve microscopic ridges into strands with an ion beam, changing the refraction of light for the appearance of a new color. This produces color that’s structural instead of chemical. Learn more about this exciting technology in the style notes. –– Laura Martin
