Dude. I got a 70′s Ann Wilson Barracuda haircut and American Idol had TWO 70′s Heart performances last night.
Coincidence? I THINK NOT.
Discuss amongst yourselves while I introduce you to Nicol:
Naturally light reddish brown
A little dry, needs product to keep static at bay
Straight and relatively thick
Doesn’t mind short hair b/c it forces her to style it (husband likes it short as well)
Spends about 10 minutes styling with hair dryer and round brush
Doesn’t like the current shape of her hair
I like the corresponding colors for both hairstyles. If Nicol were to go with Option #1, I think she should add some blond highlights to her underlying light reddish brown color (similar to Michelle Williams’ color). Nicol is comfortable going short, and this cut would really complement her hair’s texture.
Option #2 would take some texturizing to get the bulk out, as well as razoring her ends for a flicked-out finish, and I definitely like the idea of a more vibrant red color like the photo. Her eyes would really pop.
Dishwater blonde with highlights
Finely-textured and dry, a little bit of wave
Prefers longer hair but would consider collarbone-length
Doesn’t like her bangs
Uses a flat iron to smooth out
I think taking off a little of the length will really update Kristin’s look without losing too much of her hair. Both of these styles have soft, face-framing layers that will add shape and definition around her face, but the main difference is that Option #1 has piecey bangs cut around the front to blend in with the overall style.
What do you think?
