What would you say about this style?
This is a charming hairstyle that is stacked and has lots of movement. This is a fantastic short hairstyle for women who prefer the comfort of shorter hair, without having to go to the hair cut. Her gray hair is getting longer hair, so I gave her an intense highlights and toned the blonde to make it more akin to the natural hair color of her.
Do you have any suggestions for someone who is thinking about this?
The best part about wedge hairstyles is that they’re relatively easy to keep. I applied Aveda’s Pure Abundance Style Prep and Phomolient prior to drying her hair to give it some volume . I finished it off using Aveda air Control hairspray. This style is great for various hair kinds (straight or wavy, even having soft curly curls). She leads a fairly active life and has worn the longer version of her hair too. We are always returning to this version that is shorter.
