5 Basic Hairstyles

Hairstyles can express your personality and style, but not all hairdos are created equal – you need to choose one that complements your face cutting for optimal results.

This chic yet casual ensemble is ideal for everyday events. It looks great with jeans and T-shirts!

Razored Layers and a Face Frame

Soft face-framing layers can be an invaluable style upgrade for clients who wish to keep their length, yet seek an entirely different look. When cut expertly into long distances, these soft layers can give lift, remove bulk, and restore bounce and movement even in long strands.

Curtain bang fringe can be an excellent way to emphasize natural cheekbones or draw focus to eyes and works exceptionally well on curly or wavy locks.

Take the guesswork out of creating soft layers to accentuate cheekbones for a more defined look using a Sam Villa Signature Series Razor! Watch Andrew Carruthers, Cultural Ambassador for Sam Villa, demonstrate this technique easily – great when servicing clients! It results in a fresh new look without needing much maintenance, an alternative to texturizing, which requires constant upkeep but often looks choppy and requires more maintenance!

Half-Up Ponytail

Half-up ponytails are one of the most accessible yet most beautiful hairstyles around – perfect for all occasions and events! They provide a classic French braid look or add more glamorous glam with jewel hair clips, providing the ultimate beauty hack to elevate layered cuts.

Wavy hair textures pair perfectly with this style; women with round face shapes can wear it well too. Add fun accessories to elevate this look, like a fancy headscarf around an elastic, a cute scrunchie, or stylish barrettes to hold it all in place.

This hairstyle is straightforward. Gather a section of hair at the crown, fasten it with a clear hair tie, then use texturizing paste or hairspray to give the ponytail more volume and fluffiness before misting a light hairspray for a gorgeous finish.

Braided Bun

A braided bun is an effortlessly classic style that works equally well on wedding and Zoom meetings. Whether your locks are straight, curly, or wavy – with just some hair ties and bobby pins at your disposal, you can create this timeless hairstyle in minutes!

Craft a side braid just outside your hair part to achieve this look, and braid each side until they reach your earlobe. Gather them all up and secure them into a high or low bun using bobby pins.

Braids and buns make the ideal duo, especially with vibrant color accents. Experiment with bolder or subtler shades for long box braids; use more subdued for shorter hues. When finishing the look, use a silk scarf to keep everything secure and edge control gel to smooth flyaways for an eye-catching style that will turn heads!

Messy Up-do

Those with long locks should try this messy updo style for warm weather. It adds texture and glamour, perfect for casual or special events alike.

Gather your hair into a low ponytail and secure it with bobby pins to achieve this sloppy up-do. Leave some loose wisps of hair hanging off to create an adorable and romantic look, or use an eye-catching sparkly hairpiece for added glam.
