Summer Hair – Bad Girl Bob!

The hottest Summer hair and perfect for the heat, is the Bad Girl Bob! Edgier, prettier and sexier than the longer layers of Spring, this style has it ALL going on! Think razored ends and serious movement. Light and flirty, it’s wild, out there, just- don’t- care hair – that wants to have alot of fun……

 Julianne Hough – amazing texture and movement.

Dianna Argon – choppy edgy cool

 The trick  is to ask for chopped into texture – all over. The layers are taken higher than the longer bob of Spring which means the hair bounces up easily, needs less styling time and looks amazing simply spritzed with a salt spray.  Use a serum on the ends for a glossy look or a matte paste for bad girl bedhead= simple and stunning!
