Our first Hair Thursday of 2009! Say hello to Victoria.
Naturally ashy blonde with subtle highlights – likes a natural look
Naturally wavy, but straightens easily
Prefers medium to long length
Likes Bumble & Bumble products
Victoria wants a look that can be worn both wavy and straight. When she’s styling it straight, she uses a blow dryer and a flat iron occasionally. Otherwise, it’s air-drying all the way to emphasize her natural waves.
Now, I’m a little torn on choosing the optimal length for Victoria. From her before photos, she looks great with both lengths. I think I shall pick both lengths as options and let you all choose- how about that?
Let’s take a look at the options.
Victoria mentioned she has never had bangs. Well, I think she has the perfect type of hair and face shape for beautiful sideswept bangs alá Jennifer Garner. These type of bangs are very easy to style and a breeze to grow out.
(Hint for sideswept bangs! While blowdrying, brush your bangs in the OPPOSITE direction that you want them to lay. When they are dry, smooth them in the direction you want. It’s virtually fool proof, I promise.)
Option #1 would be a nice, subtle departure from Victoria’s relatively one-length hair without sacrificing length.
For a shorter look, Option #2 would also look lovely with Victoria’s features. She could easily wear this style straight or wavy and the length would really accent Victoria’s beautiful cheekbones.
(Hey! Product recommendation for 2nd day wavy/curly hair! Bumble and Bumble Reactivating Mist is a light spray that helps to revive curls and waves. I’m just starting to use it….I’ll get back to you with my final thoughts. Anyone else using this?)
