color block

This bob’s bright splashes of color nod to its sixties influence when bold color blocked dresses and geometric haircuts were the hallmarks of trendy mod fashion. Short round fringe, piecey internal texture and asymmetry give the style a contemporary twist. The bright pops of color are anchored in a natural dark blonde base for a bold, but wearable look. Click the style notes for steps to achieving the look. –– Laura Martin

Step: Dry cutting an asymmetric A-line bob allows for the creation of soft layers without disturbing the blunt edge. Slide cutting and surface cutting will soften the shape and add texture.

Step: Lighten blocks of hair at either side of the face and in the fringe and tone with Goldwell Elumen Pure shades like Tq@all, YY@all, and KK@all.

Step: Shampoo and condition with color save. Apply defrizz serum and dry smooth with a round paddle brush.
