(I’m on a plane to Hawaii today. Awww yeah.)
Naturally mousy brown. Dyes it dark brunette
Very thick, naturally curly
Would straighten her hair every day if time permitted
Always straightens her bangs and if she wears it curly, she “corrects” a few curls in the front with a curling iron
Okay, let’s begin. I can’t tell if it’s the lighting in the photos or what, but the color in the second (straight) photo is sublime. Shiny and chocolate and gorgeous and not brassy and RECREATE THAT COLOR HOWEVER YOU CAN, LAURA.
As for the cut, let’s take a little off (2-3 inches) and do something different with the bangs.
I’m just not loving the piecey bang look on Laura. I think she would look much better with sideswept bangs (especially with her wavy/curly hair) or no bangs at all. I used photos of straight hair to show off the layering in the front, but I think both of these hairstyles would look great worn naturally curly.
I would suggest Laura grow her bangs out in a sideswept fashion (#1) – that way they can blend with the rest of her hair throughout the process. Additionally, layering throughout will keep her long hair current without the risk of looking too bulky or dated.
