I know someone (let’s call her Jane) wants longer hair, but I do think a slightly shorter cut would look very fresh, as well as getting rid of some of the drier ends. However, if Jane wants a longer cut, I would recommend growing her bangs out.
Let’s take a look at the two options.
Option #1 is a flirty style that would freshen up Jane’s look. I love the sideswept bangs, and I would ask Jane to pay particular attention to the way the bangs blend into the side of the hair. Right now, Jane’s bangs are too severe on the sides. They really don’t blend at all, so I would request that she make a note of that with her stylist. Blend, blend, blend.
Option #2 would be really pretty as well. If Jane wants to stick with the longer length, I would highly recommend growing out her bangs to a nice, chin-length layer. That way, Jane will still have movement around the face, but the overall look will be very different.
As for products, I would recommend looking into the styling lotions mentioned by Aleks this week, and I don’t think it would be such a bad idea for Jane to let her natural curls air-dry once in awhile to keep it as healthy as possible.
What do you all think? Should Jane go shorter or keep the length?
