“Maryellen’s hairstyle was too severe,” says New York City stylist Mark Garrison . A long bob with bangs can be flattering, but her particular cut lacked shape and movement. In her words: “I looked like a mushroom!”

After – “Softer bangs combined with length at the nape and fullness at the crown flatter her oval face and really bring out her cheekbones,” Garrison says. “We also gave her warm, caramel-colored highlights around the face, being careful not to go too light, which can wash some women out.

Malena isn’t too mature for long hair, “but overprocessing had left her locks straw-dry and unmanageable,” says Garrison. “And the color was way too light, making her look pale.”

After – Garrison snipped off the frazzled ends and gave Malena a sexy bob that brings out her gorgeous bone structure. As for color, “the beauty is in the contrast,” says Garrison.

Morgan has naturally thick, wavy hair, “but she wasn’t taking advantage of it,” said Garrison. And by leaving it long and unshaped, she wasn’t doing anything to show off her pretty, youthful features. Lastly, this natural blonde (who didn’t previously color her hair) needed a little brightness.

After – Face-framing layers retain the look of longer hair without the limpness. The side-swept bangs minimize Morgan’s high forehead while playing up her baby blues. Streaks of buttery blond add extra oomph.
