Graduation…

An ultra-short, graduated and curly take on the soft-undercut. By using strategically cut longer layers on the top and front of the head, Anh is able to balance out the short back layers. By doing so, the head shape is defined and hair has maximum volume, especially when styled with undone curls using L’Oreal Professional …

French New Wave…

A sultry and modernized take on the classic 60’s beehive. This chic updo was achieved by using L’Oreal Professionnel True Grip on the roots and back combing the roots for maximum volume and texture. Additional grit comes from Next Day Hair from mid to ends of the hair for body throughout prior to styling the …

CHOP CHOP

Another total transformation before-and-after cut! As visible from the photo on the left, the ends of the model’s hair were uneven, overly grown out with broken ends, giving the hair the appearance of being thin, lifeless and even shorter than it actually was.

A subtly side-parted take on the soft undercut, this collarbone length, shaggy style perfectly embodies carefree California Girl style with a chic upgrade. This look is a classic that will grow out seamlessly — from the rooted color gradient to point-cut ends, it’ll look just as good months from now as it did when first …

soft.UNDERCUT

Rich, dark color is no excuse for a style that is heavy, weighed down or lacking dimension. Through the soft undercut technique, soft layers are created and movement dispersed throughout the look. A choppy yet feminine edge is created through point-cutting the edges and softening any harsh transitions between layers. Using L’Oreal Next Day Hair, …
