The Highlight

Get The Look: Jessica Alba’s Blunt Bob

March 24, 2015 admin

Short and sweet strands! GLAM’s Giovanni shares his thoughts on shorter hairstyles like Jessica’s new boyish/bombshell bob.

“What’s wonderful about the cut is that it will be not only versatile, but low maintenance…What I love is that her colorist worked with her highlights to provide dimension rather than add a lot of layers, which would have made it more challenging to style.”

Want to make like Alba? Here’s how to ask for a similar cut:

If you have fine to medium hair:

“Ask your colorist for ombré, sun-kissed color accentuating the tips of the hair and the front for dimension…Make sure to ask for color that cascades into the ends. For the cut, ask for a length above the shoulder and below the jawline. The style doesn’t have any layers, but  texture was definitely added to give the hair softness and movement.

If you have thicker, coarser hair:

“You would ask your stylist to use his or her technique to remove that weight on the ends, as this shape tends to become triangular…Remove heaviness’ is what you tell your stylist after they achieved the right length.”
