Just thought I would do a little update with what's going on right now. It's smack dab in the middle of the summer, and hot as all get out here in Vero Beach.
I think this is one of those times when women with long hair really consider cutting it off. As long as you are still able to put it back, going shorter can really cool things off. Ever wonder what a good length for that might be? Anywhere just above the shoulders to just past the collar bone is always a good start.
One of my favorites, right now, is the lob bob. If you haven't seen this, you can google it to get some ideas.
What is it? Ever so cleverly named, it's jus a long bob. :)
And like everything else, it has many variations.
I recently cut a version of a lob (though this cut is barely on the cusp of a lob). I, also, did a beautiful highlite technique called flamboyage. In this particular case, the look I was trying to achieve was a subtle, soft, natural ombre. Not the stark, root to end, contrast we are used to seeing. I wanted something that would grow out super gently, yet bring some lightness around the face. This is something anyone can wear, and perfect for someone who is new to color, and just wants to test the waters.
However, if you are more inclined for something stronger, color wise, that can also be done with flamboyage alone or with a combination of traditional foils.
If putting your hair back isn't a must, then how about a cute, modern twist on the Gagtsby Bob.
