Hot Shots


After ash blonde highlights were added to a pale blonde base, the hair was cut with radical layering from the center, allowing it to blend from shorter to longer layers in an evenly concave shape. Slicing into the hair opened the style by softening and adding texture; hairpieces, razored to gently blend with the natural hair, were used for length. Volume was incorporated with a round brush and Wella styling products, while large tongs and a straightening iron sharpened the outline.

Heavy slicing was used to create this classic bob shape with a subtly asymmetric fringe; then the stylists used a "dipping" technique to create lots of color underneath the hair and less toward the crown, so the color is exposed when the hair is brushed across the top. For a very simple, casual finish, the hair was spritzed with a light styling mist—Airfluid, by L'Oreal Professionnel—and an iron spray-constructor.

After the model's natural blonde hair was darkened to a rich brown shade, it was prepped with Bumble and bumble Does It All Spray, then cut into lots of short, choppy layers and a heavy fringe, while basically maintaining the length. Working with the natural wave, the stylist touched the hair with triple- and single-barrel curling irons, wrapping the strands to the outside of the irons for a more natural effect. A touch of Styling Wax was added for definition before the mass of curls was loosely pinned up at the back and sprayed with Extra Strength Holding Spray.
