A face-fram­ing lob

First For Women - - Style -

How it flat­ters: Tresses that softly swing above the shoul­ders give hair youth­ful bounce, says Dale De­la­porte, cre­ative di­rec­tor at Préma Sa­lon, who cut Regina’s hair. And de­fined lay­ers that fan out just be­low the eyes di­rect fo­cus up for the il­lu­sion of more lifted cheek­bones. What’s more? The warm un­der­tones of a bright auburn hue add a rosy color to skin for a ra­di­ant glow. Get the look: Ask your stylist for a long bob that rests above the shoul­ders with long blended lay­ers and face-fram­ing sec­tions that can be tucked be­hind the ear. And since red dye is no­to­ri­ous for fad­ing quickly (due to small color pig­ments that eas­ily slip out when sham­poo­ing), col­orist Jenna Mast sug­gests us­ing cool water when wash­ing hair. “The cool­ness helps keep hair’s cu­ti­cle closed so dye mol­e­cules are less likely to es­cape.”

Regina Stepowska, 56
