Lawson - Before shot

 

Here are the results after cutting, styling and photographing Lawson on the deck.

I shortened and blended the sides and back for a sharp finish and textured and trimmed the top leaving one side heavier and disconnected.

To achieve the look, blow dry the hair naturally with fingers and apply the smallest amount of Rockstar Wax, pushing upwards and to the side.

I wish Lawson all the luck using these photos in his portfolio with his modelling career.

Short Wavy Hairstyle

 

 

Cut : When you are considering a new style, you need to work with your texture and encourage natural movement. Shoulder length to long styles combined with a subtle layering will increase manageability. It’s also a good idea to avoid short, blunt cuts to prevent the “pyramid” effect – where your hair is flat on top and bulky at the ends. Unless you are prepared to blow dry or straighten your hair daily, stay away from fringes and sharp layers.

Colour : Exaggerate your movement with subtle shade shifts. Try to avoid significant colour changes as they can stress your strands, making them more prone to frizz and flyaways. Try to stay as close to your natural hue as possible or consider balayage – a technique focusing on lightening the mid-lengths and ends – to help enhance your natural movement.

  1. A technique using dark and light tones to accentuate shadow and depth on the face.
  2. If your face is round or square you can colour areas to specifically elongate or create a more oval shape. It can also work to shrink your forehead or define your cheekbones.
  3. A lot of consideration is taken into which tones work best for you and how much colour placed around the face to achieve the best results.

Heart Shape

Heart shaped face - Kate Moss

Light pieces are woven around the jawline and ears to soften the bottom half of the face. By mixing fine light tones with depth at the roots a more oval shape can be created. 

Square shape

square shaped face - Sandra Bullock

Multi-tonal layers of light and dark are applied to all corners of the face shape, around the jawline and temples. This softens any hard lines and creates depth and texture.

Oblong shape

oblong shaped face - Sarah Jessica Parker

Deeper tones are applied to the root along the parting merging into lighter pieces weaved from above the ears to the ends of the hair. This will create an illusion of cutting off the face to create a slimmer and shorter shape. 

Round shape

round shaped face - Kirsten Dunst

Ligher tones of colour are applied around the hairline from ear to ear to elongate the face and add brightness. Darker tones are applied to the underneath of the ears and the lower ends of the hair around the face to give the face shape more of a point. 

Oval shape

Oval shaped face - Kylie Minogue

Not the only shape that suits most styles and colour but it is seen as the most desireable – all most the hourglass figure of face shapes. A completely bespoke colouring scheme can be created to add in depth thickening texture and shine.

Hair accessories

Hair combs and pins can be gorgeous with braids and chignons. Place them around the base of a bun or above one ear to hold shorter layers.

Hair Accessories

Barettes

tortoise barrette

When you want to pull your hair back quickly use a barrette. It looks classier and more expensiove than an elastic. To ensure a tight hold, thoroughly tease the underside of the hair before gathering it into a ponytail and snapping the barrette as close to the nape as possible.

Texturised Wisps

A little bottle of powder

What are texturising or matifying powders and how do they work?

How it works?

Achieving volume and texture from a little shaker bottle to create crazy volume is all about the fine white powder made from silica silylate. Silica is a rough particle which gives a matte look and will help “bulk up” the hair by increasing friction between hair fibres. The various ingredients in these powders all interact to absorb moisture, which means it will get rid of excess oil, contributing to the volumising effect.

How to use?

Use hair powder on dry hair, shaking the bottle gently achieving a fine dust on areas of your head where you require instant lift. The more you use the higher your head goes. Once you get the hang of the application technique, it is a versatile product, and you only need very small amounts. It definitely takes some practice to master as the delivery system can be weird and messy, so you have to make sure you blend it in well.

Which one to buy?

Some are stronger than others or some you need to use a bit more. Some have multiple holes and some only have one. The best one for overall volumising is OSIS-DUST IT TEXTURE MATIFYING POWDER. It not only hits the most surface area on your head and spreads the product evenly it’s more gentle with subtle volume.

Your hair will have a sort of cotton candy texture to it, especially if you use it all over, so if you’re a fan of natural feeling shining hair you might dislike this product.

Overall unlike hairsprays that is a wet product that can leave a residue and can weigh your hair down, this is a favourite styling product of mine. For it’s instant volume, to its actual size to fit in your bag and the endless creations of high hair!Short and Choppy

 

 

Double Disconnection

Double Disconnection

The cut :  The unique cut is a double disconnection with low hard part at the first disconnection.

The style : Work gel through wet hair, this helps create hold when blow drying hair into shape resulting in the need to use less finishing product to get the desired look. Finish with a clay wax.

 

Sharp Fade

The cut : This crewcut inspired look features an expertly tapered fade around the side and back. The top is cut with lots of texture and a longer disconnected fringe.

The style : Apply hair gel to wet hair. Spike up hair with flat iron to get the signature bend. Finish with a clay wax. Set the style with hairspray and add extra shine with a glossing spray.

The cut : This medium length hairstyle is inspired by country gentlemen. Longer hair is sliced to create separation and remove weight.

The style :  Apply a styling paste to wet hair for a little hold and matte finish. Blow drying using a paddle brush to smooth hair and add control. Finish with a fibre product.

I’m a firm believer that less is more, but that doesn’t mean less should be boring. The hair at this years Oscars was safe with the exception of a few.

Hair colour plays an important part especially if the style is to be worn straight and tousled or wavy or even pulled back which was evident on the red carpet, think Jessica Chastain, Naomi Watts & Reece Witherspoon.

My favourite looks stood out from the hundreds of ladies that graced the red carpet. They wore their hair that suggested a little of their personality, style and willingly moving away from the same old long glamorous do.

The Side Part

This look will continue to dominate in 2015, for something different, try parting on the opposite side. Hair can be stubborn when it comes to change so use a little extra product while hair is trained to lie flat in a different direction.

 Long Hair            

A length more commonly worn, replacing the questionable ponytails of the past. Anything chin-length and longer is cool be sure to keep going for trims. Unkempt hair looks lazy and unintentional compared to groomed and cared for long hair.

Conditioning is a must, make sure you add this to your shower routine to achieve healthy and strong ends.

 The Mop

This is perfect for all hair types and can be worn with a side-part or swept down. Long layers on top with an undercut is a favourite look of mine.
