International Style


spotlight-stealing silhouettes

from Jean-Marie Contreras in Paris, France

↑ lush layers

Romance is in the air and you can grab a little bit with this luscious layered snip. Long layers frame the face and waterfall over the shoulders in a easy waves.

↑ face-framing

Is it a bob? Or is it faux? It could be that long lengths are gently gathered into a low bun at the nape, giving the appearance of a soft bob shape. Or it could be a bob cut with ends turned under in easy curves. Either way, pick the version that works with your hair length for a stunning silhouette.

↑ sleek twist

Elegance at its finest! Hair is divided into an upper and a lower section. Top section is sleekly combed back and twisted into a bun. Bottom section is gathered just below the nape and twisted into a figure-eight that meets with the bun for a cohesive look that scream sophistication.

↑ wet look

So popular! Tresses in a classic bob cut are parted on the side and slicked back with gel to just behind the ears, using enough gel for the hair to look “wet.” Ends are left in soft curves and pieced through with just a hint of that gel for a piecey effect.

↑ tousled beauty

Windswept can be a beauty profile as well as a state of mind. A curled bob is teased outward for a finish that screams that you have style beyond anyone’s wildest imagination. And the wind is at your command as you biggest style accessory.

Makeovers



Shoulder-length locks get a fabulous update in cut, color and style. Vibrant gold and amber highlights are added to a darker base, while length is cut short around the ears and back. Layers on top are left longer to help create a pompadour effect with tons of volume and style panache. Hair by Hair Benders Intl., Chattanooga, TN.


A red-hued bob has bangs snipped in across the forehead, and a bit of tapering along the edges for a more delicate finish. The base red hue is dolled up with apricot highlights to help add in a color pop focused around the face. A few lowlights in a deeper red round out the look for tons of dimension and style appeal. Hair by Hair Benders Intl., Chattanooga, TN.


Subtle changes bring on a new vibe. A blunt cut is transformed into a piecey finish with punch by shattering the edges into layers of varying lengths. The solid orange hue is given a boost of color with a crimson red hue that frames the face and blends effortlessly into the original shade. A glossing serum palmed over the top brings the look shine. Hair by DASS Salon, Atlanta, GA.


Grown-out color gets a revival and the cut joins in the party. The hue is elevated to a bold white-blonde shade with shadowing at the roots. One side of the mane is cut higher, while the other is left lower in an asymmetrical finish. Sleek styling finishes off the updated look with the help of a flat iron (and a sassy tie!). Hair by DASS Salon, Atlanta, GA.
