Have you heard of the clavicut? This current “beauty buzzword” describes mid-length, in-between hair, long bobs, and shoulder-length styles. The name comes from the fact that the longest layers of this type of cut graze the clavicle, and this collarbone-skimming style has become the hairdo of choice due to its functionality and ease. It’s been a long few seasons of bobs, lobs, swags, shags, etc. You may have opted for one of these styles, or seriously thought about it and decided to keep your long layers anyway. The Clavicut is a trend almost anyone can get behind; young or mature,  growing out a shorter cut, or looking for a change to the same old “long”.

This style can be tailored to your face shape and hair type, although this length is great for anyone. Consider blunt edges for a more dramatic look, or soft layers to blend thicker textures. To make it more modern, opt for bangs with your clavicut for a statement look.

With this length; wearing your hair down won’t weigh you down and up-styles are still romantic. You will still have enough length to successfully air dry, without having a tangled mess or tons of flyaways – it is the perfect middle ground for easy styling and easy care. Although saying good-bye to your long locks might sound scary, this cut could be life changing, in the best way. Opt for a new outlook with this style and shed some of your inhibitions along with those inches. Call (216) 292-HAIR (4247) to schedule an appointment for your new look today!

Color & Haircut Make-over

Written by: Denise Zingale Date of published: . Posted in Blow-dry Hairstyling, Color make-over, Fashion, hair texture, make-overs, Spring hairstyles, Summer hairstyles, Up-do's, Women's Hairstyles

A new client with thick, naturally wavy hair came in this week with approximately 1″ of regrowth and chunky highlights done on the top of her head and underneath around her nape for when she wore her hair up.

A new base color one level lighter than what she previously had been wearing was chosen to soften her look and bring out her light brown eye color. After processing the new base color, a full head of small weaved highlights were done due to her hair’s thickness to brighten up the entire head and blend in the chunkier highlights on the top. Her color service was followed up with Olaplex for 15 minutes & a protein/moisture conditioner for 5 minutes.

At the styling chair, a leave-in color saver was applied followed by Aquage SeaExtend silkening oil treatment and straightening ultragel. Her hair was blown-dry straight and lightly flat ironed before finishing off her haircut dry with a “Clavicut” style. The Clavicut style can be tailored to face shape and hair type ~ worn straight, wavy or curly. The longest layers of this cut graze the clavicle and this collarbone-skimming style is fast becoming the hairstyle of choice for all ages due to its functionality and ease. With this style, she will be able to wear her hair down without it weighing her down and her up-do styles will still be very romantic.

Color & Haircut Makeover for over 60

This is a client who is a working professional and travel enthusiast. She wanted to grow her hair out “one last time” to see how it would look. The day came and she had enough of her long hair and told me to do anything I wanted! Well … it did come with some requests…. She ask me to leave it long enough to to pull it up as well a have versatility and style when she wore it down and she wanted her hairline grey to be minimized so as not to show within a few weeks of growing out. I began with her color – two inches around her face was zig-zagged out and a shade lighter than the rest of her base color that I use on the rest of her head was applied to minimize her hairline grey showing to quickly. A full head of highlights then was done to give her a dimensional, brighter look and add body to her fine hair. For her haircut, I decided that a combination of a  “Lob” & “Swag” would be the desired look for her. Enough length was removed and layers were added to still allow for her hair to be styled up as well as worn down straight or curled. Light “curtain” bangs softened her forehead. (not shown).

Below are the before & afters. (Click on picture for a larger view)

2. Add hair to each side of the knot (as you would doing a french braid) then tie into another knot below the first.

3. Repeat previous step for a third section, pulling hair from each side.

4. Use the remaining amount of hair for the fourth and final knot.

5. Fasten the bottom with an elastic band. You can either leave the style as a low ponytail or (6) tuck the hair up and underneath the knots with bobby pins to create an updo.

Color Enhancement ~ Richer, Shinier Hair

Written by: Denise Zingale Date of published: . Posted in Blow-dry Hairstyling, Color make-over, fall hairstyles, Fashion, Hair Color, hair texture, make-overs, Spring hairstyles, Summer hairstyles, Tips, Uncategorized, Women's Hairstyles

This is a client who came in with natural “mousy” brown hair color. She wanted it to “pop”, look richer, healthier, shinier AND not have a commitment to coloring it regularly. I did a full head, fine low-lighting technique with a dark, chocolate red brown color and added Olaplex to her color service. Olaplex is a professional product that reconnects the broken disulfide sulfur bonds in the hair that are broken during chemical services. Olaplex is free of silicone, sulfates, phthalates, DEA, aldehydes, & gluten. After coloring and the Olaplex “after treatments” (#2 & #3), it was time to taking off approximately 2 inches help give her hair a nice line again. Here are the beautiful results!

Color Make-over: Brass to Blonde

This is a new client that came in asking me for color only to minimize her grey regrowth in the front – get rid of some of the “brassy” color – and have more natural brighter blonde look. To minimize her regrowth in the front, I zig-zagged a color 1 level lighter at the base regrowth than what I used on the rest of her head to cover her grey. Baby-lights where then foiled in half her head to brighten her blonde up. Results below with no haircut or “styling”.

Sometimes even professionally done color needs correction. Here is a client that came in to me asking for her hair to look more “natural” with highlights and wanting to get rid of the “orange” (brassy) color in her hair. She also wanted to keep her hair on the long side but wanted it to have some style. Below are the before & afters.

The lob. When it comes to all of the words out there, it’s not exactly the prettiest one on the planet. But if you know someone who happens to have a lob (a long bob) hairstyle, you can vouch for the fact that the ‘do makes you more than willing to overlook its awkward name.
