Ombre –– the graduation of color from dark to light –– is splitting great hair lovers into two. On the one hand, there are those that love the sensational melting effect of multi-tone shading; on the other, there are those who find it passé (ombre has been in the big cities for a few years now) or unappealing (the more dramatic raven to blonde colors are garish to some). With this debate, we will do well to remember hair is an accessory to enhance your natural charms –– if ombre helps you beautify, do it.  This image is a great example.  A classic long layer with the top pinned back to expose her cheekbones and eyes, the chocolate to caramel ombre is subtle, dynamic, and attractive. It brightens up her features while spotlighting the tousled texture draping down her back.

“Some girls never wear bangs because they are traumatized by an old cheerleading photo with the infamous ‘bubble’ bang,” says Cheryl Fazio , senior stylist at ARROJO studio. “Others are conscious of cowlicks or achieving the right shape. But the best bang styles lift you up, frame the features, draw attention to eyes. They can make the difference between a good and a great style.” So, how do you make them great? Read on for Cheryl’s professional bang styling how-to…

For nearly two decades Jennifer Anniston has been a paragon of hairstyle and she is still wearing great hair! These two looks show the how the same hairstyle –– even an archetypal shoulder-grazing layer cut –– can be changed up with inventive hair dressing at home. The textured look is more on trend –– and has more of a romantic, cascading face-frame –– while the straighter style shows us how a ten minute blast with a blowdryer can support natural and casual daytime styles.

Jules of Sincerely Jules is one of our favorite fashion bloggers, and we’ve always adored her thick brunette locks. She pulls off her ombre incredibly well, as well as her gorgeous long bangs. Sometimes she leaves her chunky bangs down to cover her forehead, but she looks equally lovely when she pins them back. We love that Jules is able to master both looks — she’s such a style chameleon! Which look do you like best – bangs or no bangs?

We love great bangs. Get them cut right and bangs will lift you up, frame the wonderful features of your face, and bring more attention to eyes. As example, look how these deep-set, full straight bangs complement the loose, free-flowing texture of a shoulder-grazing layer cut –– gorgeous! Notice how they have a textured shape, and drape over the eyebrows to make big brown eyes explode. The trick when blowdrying bangs is to do them first, separating them from the rest of the style. Blowdry them with the rest of the hair and they tend to dry too quickly, which results in an odd shape.
