Her brand new look is simple, perky, and cut just above the shoulders allowing for movement and swing while still being long enough to pull back into a pony tail. Since the style falls below her chin, with some shorter face-framing strands, it gives a feminine appeal and elongates her slightly full face. This traditional bob is updated with lots of texture. The ends are point cut at a 45% angle, giving it a nontraditional soft, fringy edge. This allows the ends to flip out naturally.
To style this cut to perfection, apply smoothing serum or smoothing crème to damp hair and blow your hair dry with whatever brush gives your hair the smoothest, sleekest appearance. This may be a vent brush, if your hair is naturally straight, a round brush or paddle brush for wavy hair, or try Denman’s new Thermo Sraightening Brush, that will get out any trace of wave. Use a large round brush or large curling iron to encourage the ends to flip out and then finish your style with a light, flexible hair spray.
Ms. Gellar’s chunky beige-blonde highlights are perfect for the smooth lines of the style and are very classy since they are just a few shades lighter than the light brown undertones. The charm of this hair color is in the natural looking soft blond shades. More contrast between the light and dark shades will take away the soft, feminine and very stylish effect.
This ‘chunky’ look can be achieved by a variation of the typical highlighting procedure.
Start by weaving four or five foils, very close together, using the lightening solution.
Next to these foils leave at least an inch of your hair in its natural state. (If your hair happens to be previously lightened, you can weave this area with several sections using a tint matching your natural hair color.) Be sure to place some lighter sections at the front hairline to brighten your face. This is a very simplified description of a specialized process that your hairdresser can customize just for you.
I hope I have given you an idea of what it will take to make the transformation to Sarah Michelle Gellar’s cool new look, because, whether your daily activity involves the slaying of Vampires or more traditional employment, this look is sure to be as appropriate as it is stylish and feminine.
