From long hair to a box bob

"Client Ella was after a big hair change! She had been growing out her old colour/bleach and wanted a new look that was totally different to the hairstyle she had had before. Her washed out hair colour was looking tired and she was keen for a sharper haircut that would get rid of it.

Ella had an image of what she wanted (which is always helpful for the stylist!). The picture showed a strong bob with a blunt mini-fringe (also sometimes called a box bob) and although I thought it was the perfect haircut for her and that she could pull it off, I thought a slightly longer length would suit her better.

To finish the hairstyle I used Davines OI All In One Milk, as well as a drop of the Davines OI Oil while the hair was damp and before drying. I then used the Davines More Inside Medium Hairspray to finish to give hold and enhance the sleek look. I also suggested Ella could use a texture spray like Kevin Murphy DOO.OVER to add more or texture without weighing the hair down if she wanted a change from keeping it smooth. 

I also suggested she come back into to see me every three weeks for a fringe trim and to book in for a haircut every six weeks to stay onto of the bob hairstyle"
