1. Inspired by Contouring: Ultra Depth
Wanting a look with 'Ultra-Depth,' Wella created this cool dissonance of youth and a daring shaggy style.A freehand cut with very long and textured layers combined with a see-through soft fringe just touching the eyebrows contours the face to bring her enticing "premium innocence" alive. A cool panel of petrol colours over a slimming volcanic black are placed throughout the top of her head to create the illusion of soft movement and structure.
Step 1Razor cut from mid-lengths to ends to create texture and define the shape. Work section by section on dry hair.
Step 2Cut a long and narrow round fringe, starting at the bridge of the nose going down to the cheekbones on each side. Texturize the fringe with a slicing technique. This will enable you to remove some weight and create a see-through effect.
Step 3Contour the face and personalise the entire cut by texturizing with the slicing technique and using the texturizing scissors when needed. Work this way until you reach the desired texture.
Step 1Apply colour A to the full head from roots to ends. Develop, rinse, shampoo, neutralist and dry.
Step 2Create five round sections, the first one being over the crown and the lowest one just below the occipital bone. Work on section 2 and 4, starting at the fringe and all around the head, and apply colour B from mid-length to ends to create a light pattern. Leave sections 1, 3 and 5 free of colour. Develop, rinse, shampoo, neutralise and dry.
Step 3Using foils, create a print colour pattern with colours C, D and E on the pre-lightened area. Develop, rinse, shampoo and neutralise.
Step 1Apply EIMI Velvet Amplifier and EIMI Root Shoot to the roots to create a soft texture, but with volume in the root area. Blow-dry the hair with a medium round brush and over-direct your movement to lift the roots.
Step 2Change to a smaller brush and blow-dry the fringe around to break the straightness.
Step 3Apply EIMI Shape Me and tong the hair with Wella Pro Curl 32mm - using an in-and-out movement to create chunky separation but not a curly finish. EIMI Shape Me's 48 hour shape memory will help keep the created shape in very thick and straight hair. Apply EIMI Rugged Texture from roots to ends everywhere, to add grip and definition to this editorial look and feel.
2. Inspired by Contouring: Ultra Sleek
It's Contouring-Luxe in long, straight hair.Working on an overall lightened base featuring darker beige panels placed in creative patterns on the bias around the hat line. This will enhance the sleek, movement, narrowing down the shape throughout the mid-length, giving the length diversity, and enhancing the filtered layers of the cut. Straight styling adds to the premium look.
Step 1Apply Eimi Perfect Me Hair BB Lotion to wet hair to use as a moisturising cutting lotion. Razor cut the front layers with a slight forward over-direction, for a subtle result.
Step 2Cut concave layers all around the middle parting using texturising scissors.
Step 3Check and texturise the layers by over-directing the hair to the missle parting. Cut with an aggressive forward over-direction to the front fingers at a 45-degree angle. Work this way section by section to create the illusion of length on both sides.
Step 1Full-head pre-lightening using colour A about 2cm away from the roots to mid-shaft and 5cm wide. Apply colour B through the end. Develop until the desired level of lift is achieved. Colour the roots with colour A. Develop until the level of lift from mid-lengths to ends is achieved. Rinse, shampoo and neutralise.
Step 2Section the head into 3 parts: from temple to temple, below the hat line, separating the nape area, and around the hat line - leaving a triangle sextion on the top of the head around the middle parting. Apply colour C to the nape area from roots to ends.
Step 3Create a print patter with colours C, D, E and F all around the hat line.
Step 4Apply colour G to the triangle section situated at the top of the head from roots to ends.
Step 1Apply EIMI Boost Bounce and Light Luminous Reflective Oil and spray EIMI Glam Mist onto wet hair - to create a premium, moldable texture.
Step 2Create the shape with a large round brush and twist the ends.
