Louise Brooks

In 1920 Louise Brooks knew how to highlight her cheekbones with a face framing short bob that still is worn nearly 100 years after she nailed this shape.

 

 

Easy to maintain after you’ve left the salon and easy to let it grow to a lob or longer. To keep it bobbed you will need to visit your hairdresser every 5 – 8 weeks, depending on how your hair grows. If your hair is thick you will need to ask your hairdresser to texturise the ends to create a modern twist. If your hair is fine, long layers and a long swept fringe always creates the illusion of fullness.

 

 

Solid colours either blondes or chocolates work best or baby fine highlights for a slight dimension to create interest.

 

Shorter lengths at the back are great for Winter to wrap scarfs and push up collars around your neck, this creates a nice silhouette.

 

 

Keeping the front longer for softness and on an angle from the back is a playful version of this shape especially when one side is tucked behind the ear.

The copper based pink under tone hue, is a warm yet cool colour that looks amazing against cool complexions. Basically those that can take light colours without too much pink tones in their skins would suit this colour that’s been named Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2019.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hair parted straight down the centre exudes an edgy feel and  confidence. I personally like it with one side tucked away behind the ear and has that slicked finish to it. Straight or wavy, it depends on what works for your face shape.

It’s best achieved when the hair is wet using a comb or tail comb ( that’s half comb half pointy end – we tend to foil hair with this comb ) Trying to part your hair once you’ve dried it to the side will be difficult to achieve a middle part. Run the comb in the middle and seperate into two even sides. By drying the hair with your part in the centre your more likely to find it won’t want to resume to its side part.

A little help with a styling product like wax or hairspray will help to achieve the hair to stay in place. For some fun back-combing (teasing) the crown you can create a 60’s vibe.

You also can cover your side part greys when your getting close to a touch up by moving the part to the centre.
