hair thursday makeover 28
Hey, I’ve got three updates for you tomorrow so be sure to check back. (Also, if you have an update for me, send it over and I’ll add it in.)
Naturally dirty blonde, but colors it a reddish auburn
Chemically processed, a little bit on the dry side
Thick, fine and straight
Likes long hair, but thinks the length is too much for her 5’2″ frame
Shoulder-length is as short as she wants to go
Uses Frederic Fekkai products
I really love Kristen’s current color. That reddish auburn is well suited for her complexion, and I would never have guessed she didn’t have some sort of red undertone in her natural color. So keep on keeping on with the color. As for the length, I do agree that it’s definitely too long for her petite frame, but her hair is very healthy looking. I think she could work with several options to keep some length for ponytails and such.
Option #1 – Below shoulder length, with the top and side sections angle-layered to create a full shaped style. (Pretty.)
Option #2 – Above shoulder length, with soft face framing layers to add shape around the face. (Lots of length coming off, but would be a fun change.)
Both styles are easy to maintain with regular trims.
Currently, hair is honey brown with 5 month old blond highlights
Colors her hair a lot, changes with the seasons
Thick, normal-condition and a bit of wave
Hair has never been shorter than just above the shoulders
Wash and go and uses no products
She prefers sleek and smooth cuts, not choppy and textured. She’d love to get
away with continuing to not use product, and keep it low maintenance.
Alrighty then! Let’s see- sleek and smooth, no products, no maintenance. Well, that leaves us with TONS OF OPTIONS, SABRINA.
I say, let’s get out of the in-between length and go either longer or shorter.
Option #1 – Sabrina would need to grow a few more inches (although her photos were sent last October – she could already be there). Then, add some face-framing layers around her front section to add shape and definition around her face. Very easy style to maintain.
Option #2 – Chin-length bob with a no severe angles. Very minimal texturizing keeps it smooth and sleek. Sabrina would probably need to use a blow dryer and/or flat iron to keep it smooth, though.
Option #3 – The kicker. If Sabrina wants to go shorter, but not THAT short, I also think the Sandra Bullock option in Kristen’s options (#2) would look cute.
