Bombshell Bob
May 24, 2019

Ebony tresses in this bob are given a slight inverted shape at the nape and fall in a sleek texture that curves delicately toward the face. This look is perfect for the office or for you ladies who love sophisticated and stylish manes. Thank hair pro Toya, from JCPenney Salon in Texas, for this mane.

…Of Style!

We’re offering up twice the spice (in hair color) and style on this pretty pair. Contrasting textures (curls! waves!) make for an awesome style portrait with both dipped rich, dark auburn to spice up the portrait. Which will you choose? We think you should take both…Versatility, after all, is what sets style divas apart from the rest.

Perfecting Your Plait Profile…

Direct from Canada comes this modern spin on braids! This coif begins with two large cornrows at the crown. Extra length is crafted with the help of extensions while a touch of golden caramel adorns the look (and is glimpsed glittering among the double plaits).

Next Level Profile…

From a collection appropriately dubbed, “Next Level,” comes this glossy profile painted with glints of gold! Volume is blown upward and onward on smooth base then dabbed with gold here and there. High-fashion flair comes via the color work and the larger-than-life silhouette which takes the look to editorial hair territory.
