Spring Hair – Layers!

This Spring – it’s all about layers. Choppy, sexy, carefree cool – the celebration of the ‘undone do’ and we love it!

From high fashion to the high street – the choppy layered bob with its natural movement is a major hit. Tousled, wavy, lots of bounce. Fashionistas cant get enough of this seriously flattering look.

Gossip Girl’s Jessica Szohr – pretty,  graduated choppy layers

jaJessica Alba – effortless feminine and cool

The beauty of this cut lies in its versatility. Leave to dry naturally for soft movement, straighten for sleek choppy cool, tong the ends and add bounce to the roots with hair powder, get a big gorgeous blow dry for smooth volume,  smooth back the top for sleek chic, tie up in a chignon for an easy classy feel.

It’s easy – change your mind – change your hair!

Ask for choppy layers all over with lots of natural movement. It’s all about piecey appeal. You want a style that will fall into place instantly but you can really have fun with. Invest in a good pair of straighteners you can also use to tong the ends –  and some gorgeous products.   I recently went from long straight hair to the choppy do and I’m loving my new style. It feels fantastic as the weather is warmer, you just feel lighter!
