Today’s ‘It’ Look for Long Hair

A great look for those who want longer hair, Pon International stylist Steven Villa created rolling waves with a very modern Sombre style color for his client, Danielle. This updated Ombre technique offers a deep caramel base and lighter caramel highlights placed in front and in back, as well as through the ends. It’s a softer, less contrasty blending of color that adds subtle accents where desired.

To create this look, extensions were added and then applied with silver express toner using a freehand balayage technique.  Once the color was done, the extension hair was cut to blend into Danielle’s natural hair. To style, Bumble and Bumble Repair thermal activated cream and Pon International Turn It Up styling spray were layered on damp hair. Next, after blow-drying smooth with a round brush, large sections were curled outward away from Danielle’s face.  Steven then pieced through the hair with a lightweight pomade to create this slice of perfection!
