Soft styles for Party season

Hi there my friends,  The new normal for stylists today, is the savvy client who sits in our chair armed with images from Instagram, Pinterest or a google search.
soft-wave-hairstyles-shoulder-length-hairThe client expects us to recreate a photo, when we only have one reference angle and we have to reverse engineer the photo asking “How was this created”?
And  more importantly will it translate to work on this client ?
Often the answer is no!

kieu-toc-lob-la-gi-4It takes a lovely wide face that will suit hair hanging around the face,  often closing down the features.  Most clients need their faces to be opened and lifted.
In the styles on these lovely ladies I intentionally opened and lifted the face with the goal to slim down their cheeks.

In this style I used a curling iron and used a pin curl method to create this soft wave.

In the  style below I teased the wave and pinned into the back of the head. I then did a 3 strand rope braid and pulled the braid apart and pinned into place.
