This is a layered angle bob that any woman over forty or even over fifty can wear. It is very up to date in styling but softened so that it is flattering to an aging face. The shape of the bob is cut in, stacked in back and as a last step, the sides are texturized so that they lay close to the face. Texturizing on top helps to add fullness. It is a beautiful hairstyle.
But in this article I want to feature this modelís beautiful hair color.
The modelís natural hair color is dark blonde but she prefers and looks well in extra light blonde.
- The first step is to lighten it with a high-lift tint. The tint used has a violet base to help cut through gold tones. It is mixed with 30 volume developer. This lightens her natural color to light golden blonde Ė nice but not light enough to suit her taste and still too gold.
- The next step is to highlight her hair with another high-lift violet base tint mixed with 40 volume developer. Bleach could be used, however the results are easier to control using tint. Using bleach may also be more damaging. The extra light blonde is now exactly what the model loves but adding one more touch will add the needed dimension and depth to her hair color.
- As a last step fine strands of medium blonde were added. They were placed carefully under the outer layers to add shadows and depth.
This hair color combination may seem complicated but it is easily retouched every four weeks.
- If the highlights are still bright and the lowlights are un-faded, all that is needed is to retouch the new growth. Apply the base color to the new growth only and process. Do not run it through the ends before shampooing.
- Sometimes too much time may have been spent in the sun so there is no need to highlight. Spray the ends of the hair with liquid protein or leave in conditioner to reduce the porosity, then add lowlights. While the foils are still in the hair, apply the base color to the new growth. Process both colors at the same time and shampoo.<./LI>
- Sometimes her hair color will be in need of a complete overhaul. Spray the ends with liquid protein or leave in conditioner to even the porosity. Add highlights and lowlights at the same time, being careful to keep track of the placement of each color.
As soon as the foils are in place, apply the base color to the new growth. Process the correct amount of time and shampoo.
This is not hair color that should be done at home. To get this look, visit a professional colorist.
