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 →


Ombre may finally be fading away, but dimension will never disappear. Light blonde and silver shades are big trends for the fall; adding depth at the root makes these colors more wearable and adds visual thickness and texture. The contrast of dark roots will make light ends look lighter, and the blended edge will make touch-ups less pressing. Learn about creating this trending look in the style notes. –– Laura Martin
