Tex­tured, an­gled bob

First For Women - - Style -

Who says sil­ver strands have to be ag­ing? The key to gor­geous with gray is an easy two-step up­grade: STEP 1: Opt for a shorter cut with lots of tex­ture, says hair­styl­ist Johnny Gaita, who trans­formed Louise’s hair. “I snipped out the dead, left­over non-gray strands and in­fused the cut with piecey lay­ers so coarser hair has move­ment and lev­ity.” For a style sim­i­lar to Louise’s, Gaita rec­om­mends ask­ing your stylist for a long, an­gled bob that rests just above the shoul­ders with grad­u­at­ing lay­ers and blended sideswept fringe.

STEP 2: Re­fresh new grays with a tinted gloss, says col­orist Mike Petrizzi, who did just that for Louise’s locks. “The glaze neu­tral­izes the ‘dirty’ and dulling yel­low tones gray hair tends to take on, and it smooths the cu­ti­cle to boost strand shine and vi­brancy.” To do: Ap­ply a gloss (like AGEbeau­ti­ful Top­coat Toner in Beige Blonde, Sal­lyBeauty.com) to damp hair, comb­ing through from roots to ends to evenly dis­trib­ute the for­mula. Let sit for 10 min­utes, then rinse. Use twice a month to main­tain re­sults.

“I de­cided to em­brace my grays, and now my shoul­der­length hair is brassy, scrag­gly and su­per-dry” A blouse with knot­ted twist de­tail along the neck draws at­ten­tion up to beau­ti­ful fa­cial fea­tures
