This pretty look, created by stylist Elysia Purnell, features bold details, shyly placed, creating a coy and surprisingly delicate look. A classic bob outline and clever color placement  minimize the high-contrast color and disconnection. Soft copper is contrasted by a rich violet placed in the naturally shadow of the roots. Short bangs and nape are softened by a classic a-line shape and side swept bang overlay. The result is funky, fashionable, and classic.

This hairstyle was created for a recent ARROJO hair show. A razor-cut bob with extra length deliberately left around the face-frame, the style features tapered edges, wispy bangs, and interior texture working together to create a youthful and beautiful style. This look is a great example of vanguard contemporary cuts: a geometric shape is put into place to create structure, while the straightedge blade is used to soften and loosen the the inside of the cut, adding weightlessness, modern swing and movement.

In the visual arts there are principles that guide choices about color, shape, and texture; these principles work with hairstyles as well. A stunning mane isn’t just about a trendy color or perfectly executed haircut. It’s about the complete look. I see articles all the time claiming that bright colors should be paired with bold haircuts, but the opposite is actually true: the stronger the color, the more subdued the shape should be and vice versa. Of course, if you like subtlety in both areas, or a very strong look, that can work too, but there a right and wrong way to achieve it.

Last Thursday, Hilary shared a photo on instagram showing her hairstylist in the process of giving her the crop, she then revealed the complete do shortly after. The long, choppy bob is a different direction for the beauty adventurous actress, but a total success.
