This ethereal aquamarine evokes mermaids and other aquatic creatures. Vibrant turquoise is diffused with tiny strips of creamy blonde, creating a trompe l’oeil crimped effect. The crisp bowl-shaped outline is broken up by the addition of disconnected tendrils. Venture your own version of this fantasy look by putting random longer strands into a bob, adding feathery crimped texture, or trying sea foam green in your tresses. Click through style notes for tips on making this dreamy style a reality.
Step: The classic short round bob shown here takes on a modern feeling from the veil of longer strands floating over the shape. Achieve a similar aura by asking for a few longer pieces on the surface of any timeless bob.
Step: To mimic the finish, prep hair by spraying protective thickening lotion from roots to ends, then dry hair smooth with a paddle brush. Use a small crimper on random strands of hair for a pleated texture. Alternatively, make a few small braids, press them with a flat iron, and spray with holding spray. After they cool, undo braids and comb through with your fingers for crinkled texture.
Step: The pale blue green shade shown here can be achieved with a semi permanent dye, like manic panic, applied over a pale blonde base. Or use hair chalk for a commitment-free version.
