Red Raven

This incredibly shiny haircut is sleekness to the max! This soft bob falls just past the chin and has subtle rounding and tapering layers along the perimeter. The lack of bangs keeps this style simple and accentuates the gorgeous red colour that totally rocks.

Think straight and sleek when styling this bob.
Use a comb to part your hair on the side and detangle.
Use a paddle brush or a larger sized round brush to blow dry your hair.
When you are done blow drying go back through and flat iron to really make the hair sleek and straight.

Creamy cut

The back of this haircut falls right above the shoulders and swoops down elegantly into a longer curving front. Long bangs help accentuate the soft curve around the face as well as the beveled under layers and styling. The creamy beige colour is highlighted with sweet subtle vanilla ribbons for a truly amazing colour combination.

How to style:

Use a comb to detangle your hair out of the shower and part hair to the side.
Use a paddle brush or a large round brush to blow dry your hair down and under. Use the paddle brush to remove most of the moisture before going in with a round brush to make your brush work easier.
Make sure hair is 100% moisture free and go in with a flat iron. Really bevel the ends of the hair under to create that nice sleek swoop.

Chocolate delight

This gorgeous brown colour glows with a healthy sheen. Stacked layers in the back blend in beautifully to the longer ones in the front that fall in right along the jawline. The shorter layers help add volume and shape as well keep the cut from looking too heavy. Side-swept bangs give a softer feel to this bob hairstyle.

Comb hair to the side and detangle.
Blow dry the bangs to the side with a smaller round brush.
Blow dry the rest of your hair forward. Due to the length and amount of layering throughout the cut, it should be pretty simple to dry it by just using your fingers.
Use a flat iron to grab random pieces of hair and flick them in various directions to add texture and shine.

Short whispers

Fun and flirty pieces dance around the face and the length of this bob falls perfectly right at the chin. Choosing a couple of colours to add in for highlights really creates a colour swirl effect. Deeply parted bangs look light as a feather as they fall over the forehead and above the eyes. The whole style is very light and has an airy feel to it which means the layers are really well blended and will grow out beautifully.

How to style:

Styles that have a lightweight feel oftentimes don’t have a ton of product, so use lighter formulas when styling.
Comb out your hair and part to the side.

Blow dry your head upside down or with a paddle brush, pulling all of your hair to the face to add body and volume.

Dry your entire head; brush it into place and then go in with a flat iron only if you have to.

The short wavy bob

This slightly above-the-chin length bob is a blunt cut but has lots of wispy layers cut within the shape to create softness. Wavier texture is also highlighted in this hairstyle with beautiful waves of red and brown blending together wonderfully. A slightly off-the-center part keeps balance and is great for clients who don’t want bangs.

If you have naturally wavy hair, simply comb out your hair, scrunch and diffuse. If you have straighter hair, follow these steps:

Part hair slightly to the side and blow dry. Don’t worry about your brush work so much because you will be creating your look more with a curling iron.

Use a large-sized curling iron and curl your entire head. Because your hair is short it will create loose waves instead of curls.

Brush your fingers through your waves to break them up a bit and then use the flat iron to flick out the bottom pieces to create a fun flip.
