To maximize your beauty potential, owner Eric Fisher of Eric Fisher Salons in Wichita, KS offers these tips:
Get a haircut that enhances your best features and minimizes flaws. “Be aware of what you think your best and worst features are,” says Fisher. “If you don’t like your prominent jaw, get soft, face-framing layers. For a round face, try a deep side part that has a slimming effect. If you don’t like your narrow face, add width to your cut with graduation that promotes side volume. Then accentuate your best features. Bangs always bring attention to your eyes; I like them right to the brow for a sexy look with sunglasses.”
Even eco-minded girls need a little hair color boost after too much summer sun. To keep it close to natural, Fisher recommends a semi-permanent hair color refresher. If you have an olive or tanned complexion or your skin has a touch of yellow, go two shades darker with a blue-based red or dark brunette. Looking to lighten up? Add a hint of tint and face-framing highlights. “They really make blue or green eyes pop,” says Fisher.
For a day-to-night change, nothing says sexy like curl. “What we’re doing is a dry pin curl set,” says Fisher. “Just wrap up the pin curl, hold it between your fingers and hit it with the flat-iron for a count of 10 or so. Once your hair is done, you’ll look like you sat under a dryer for 45 minutes.”
THE CUT: Combine face-framing layers, a collarbone-grazing length and a faux fringe coming off a far side part for a perfectly pretty, graceful look.
BY DAY: Prep damp locks with a light¬weight mousse and blow-dry, using a round brush to add end curve. Spiral-wrap front sections on the heavy side for a soft, sophisticated finish.
AT NIGHT: Shift the part to the opposite side, brush hair from the crown forward and set on jumbo-sized hot rollers. Set the top for volume and spiral-set longer lengths into waves. Once curls have cooled, brush from underneath and back-comb all around. You’ll be tressed to impress with a hint of edgy appeal.
