I achieved this hairstyle by prepping the hair with curls, I then overlapped pieces of hair and tied them together, overlapping each section and pulling them out for texture. I finished off with a fishtail at the bottom which I also pulled out.

Recommended Products

I would recommend hairspray and texturing spray for a style like this to add grit and texture to the hair, as well as hold.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type

The best hair texture is medium to thick texture and density. However, you can also achieve this on thinner and finer hair types with a different but similar result. It can be done on any face shape and then personalised to the client’s preferences.

Short Curly brown hair

I achieved this style by graduating the back slightly to get a better shape and then bringing everything down, so it flowed nicely. It was a grown out pixie cut, so there was a lot of short and long pieces that weren’t sitting correctly for my client.

With curly hair, you want to limit the amount of frizz and get as much volume and shape with the curl as possible. It’s better to start off with a little bit of product and build up from that, rather than putting loads on and the hair gets a bit crunchy.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type

Any shape really, petite faces can make it more of a statement look, as it’ll enhance the jaw and cheekbone/structure. Some people with a slightly rounder face might prefer the hair to be slightly longer. When cutting hair and choosing a style, it’s not just about the hair itself, it also takes into consideration the face, eye colour, and bone structure. Everything plays a part in the overall finished look! Sometimes it’s best to get the advice from your hairdresser to see what would suit.

I achieved this look by doing a half head of zig-zag sectioned highlights in foil followed by a root touch using a dark brunette blonde to cover my clients new grey regrowth.

Recommended Products

The products used to achieve this look were Aveda Pure Abundance Style Prep sprayed directly into the root area and then a light mist all over. Aveda Thickening Tonic follows it sprayed all over. These products are used on wet hair before blow drying. When the hair is dried, I used Aveda Shampure Dry Conditioner as heat protection from the straightening irons and smoothed over the ends only so as not to lose any volume from the roots. To finish, I used 1 pump of Aveda Smooth Infusion Smoothing Fluid, rubbed this into my hands then ran my fingers through the hair to add texture and shine.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type

I believe that this style in particular suits more slimmer / elongated face shapes as it’s created fullness around the face making a face seem slightly fuller and less elongated. This client in question has fine to medium density hair.

Straight Red Bob

I achieved this style by creating a soft undercut that went with the natural texture of the hair, which tucked the layers underneath her modern bob.

Recommended Products

I would recommend using Kadus Professional Frizz Down in damp hair and round brush under to manipulate the shape of the client’s hair and create lasting hold and frizz control.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type

This hairstyle can be customised for any clients face shape. I would recommend the addition of shattered bangs to a more round or square face shape and wispy contoured face-framing layers around a longer face.

White blended bob

So, this hairstyle is a result of several bleaching treatments, this girl has gone through. Evey mount bleaching session and she was platinum, but as you know bleach is not good for the hair, and even if we weren’t touching all length every time they were dry and sometimes it comes to breaks. So, it never grows as much as she wants it to grow. What we decide was leaving the hair without bleach for at least 3 months and after that, I apply a toner similar to her natural.

Colour to blend everything and trough the ends applying another silvery toner It’s a cool tonality e so if your skin it’s already pale I would not recommend this colour but its universal so it looks good and edgie in everyone, sometimes it’s required a little bit of makeup to make the stronger look.

Blunt bob cut

To achieve this hairstyle, I first gave her a blunt haircut, zero layers.

Recommended Products

I blow dry using Kenra Professional Blow-Dry Spray and Design Me Fab Me spray, then to give it texture and volume, and I pumped the Design Me Puff Me texturising powder at her root. (Be careful not to use too much, as it can make the hair feel sticky)

Best Face Shape and Hair Type

Typically the best face shape for this particular hairstyle is any that isn’t round or square, as that would draw attention to the jawline making a face seem wider. So either Diamond, Oval, heart, and so on would work best!

I achieved this style by using the Paul Mitchell Express Ion Unclipped using the 1” inch rod attachment, but any 1” inch wand will work. I sectioned all the hair above the ear and clipped it out of the way. I curled the bottom sections using 1” inch partings and alternated the curls forwards and backwards. I always make sure to curl the front pieces away from the face. I then dropped the top section and repeated the same process.

Recommended Products

I recommend using a texture spray. My favourites include Paul Michell Neon Sugar Spray or Invisible Wear Undone Texture Hairspray. Also, make sure you always use a heat protectant when using hot tools! If you have thin silky hair the texture hairspray would help bulk your hair up to hold the curls. If you have thick coarse hair, try getting it as smooth as you can with a blow dryer before using your curling wand.

The cool thing about this style is that everyone can wear it!

Blonde wavy hair

I achieved this look by balayaging two different colours of blonde into my client’s hair keeping in mind that I wanted to keep a lot of golden tones that would compliment her skin colours. I then took a 1 1/4 size curling iron and curled one whole row to the left and then one whole row to the right.

I like to prep the hair with a heat protectant while wet and layer with a mousse that would help create the texture. I like to prep the hair with a heat protectant while wet and layer with a mousse that would help create texture in the hair when dry. Once curled I like to break up using a dry texture spray like the one from Oribe.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type

It is a very versatile look, and style that many different face shapes can wear since the “lob” is still soft and piecey.

I achieved this hairstyle by starting with a low bald fade, keeping the cut compressed to bring out the contrast of colour. Then I took forward diagonal sections and elevated the hair 90 degrees to create a square shape. Then free form cut the fringe and texture. To finish the hairstyle I used a diffuser attachment on my hairdryer with sea salt spray and dried for about 10 minutes.

Recommended Products

My go-to product cocktail is ADH dry by @adhbrand, Kevin Murphy Bedroom hair finishing spray, and Seven sea salt spray.

I am all about freedom of expression. However, I would not do this hairstyle if you have a short round head and face. However, as I said, look how you want. Be free.

How to Style

Firstly, the hair must be in a dry condition. Crimp the upper and inner part of the hair. Sectioning the hair. Curl the hair with a 28-mm curling iron per section start from the front and upper part of the crown. Kindly note to use the hair roll also right after curling them section by section. Let it sit for half an hour. Open the hair rolls and start to tangle the hair. Tangle them from the front and upper part of the crown. Lastly, style as you want.

Recommended Products

We can use the textured dust from any brand to texturise the hair so it can be easier to tangle and the styling lasts longer. Don’t forget to always use hairspray after tangling the hair per section. Any non-aerosol hairsprays brand is all right. For me, I use the textured dust from L’oreal Techni Art and the hairspray from Silhouette

Best Face Shape and Hair Type

The best hair type for this style is for the short hair -even with bob hair. And also the best face shape to suit it is almost any face shapes
