These steps are especially perfect for summer considering they’re heat free and take mere minutes.

Bobs are great for their clean-lined simplicity, but on thick hair they can sometimes feel heavy or bulky, lacking the flow of longer, layered styles. These disconnected shapes offer a perfect solution, creating space by combing two disparate shapes on a single head without blending. The result is hair that naturally shifts and slides, at the place where the contrasting lines come together, creating swingy movement. You can enhance the separation between the shapes with color, creating visual contrast as pictured above, or go with a single color and opt for a softer look with all the same benefits. Click the notes to learn more about incorporating disconnection into your look. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →
