My friend Barbara, the co-President of the tres chic new designer line Lumete sunglasses (www.lumete.com), came upstate with her husband Seth to visit Jason and I this weekend just past. We grilled, we drank, we had fun, and then, we cut some hair. A lot of hair!
Long luxurious hair can become a burden of labor and styling time. What to do? Hmmm...
Having grown her hair for the wedding, Barbara felt it was time for a fresh change of hair.
Because we were planning on cutting off the majority of her hair, a donation was is order. I positioned her hair in three braided ponytails to be sent off for a wig making charity.
Barbara was open to any ideas I had, and because of her resemblance to Gwyneth Paltrow, I did some image researching for inspiration. Gwyn can pull of anything, and so can Barbara.
The Inspiration: a somewhat longer French Bob, modernized by some razored texture at the ends.
With this shape in mind, we took a wee bit shorter to give it more punch, and to avoid a blah medium length look.
After! Front and Back, all perfection.Does the cut look good in action? YES!!
I'm feeling a lot of pride with this pic. Even swinging her hair, the base length is perfectly edged.
Thank you, Seth, for taking all of these awesome photos!
