Your edgy clients are your most fun clients, and holiday is the most fun time of the year. Great combination! When your fashion-forwards come to you this season, don’t disappoint. Pull out some client looks to help them bring the flash that will brighten up their yuletide parties. 

For your very edgiest, channel Jada Pinkett Smith’s controversial cut. Or get inspired by perennial trendsetter Rihanna for ideas to give clients a less severe cut while using styling magic to create similar look.
Your dance club girls can take a page out of Gwen Stefani’s topknot lookbook. And are some of your adventurous ladies rockin’ the pixie? Gel it to get the asymmetric edge a la Jennifer Hudson.
Color shockers are an easy way to give a holiday look some zing! Remember the hint-of-blue white that Nicole Richie wore to the Met Gala last spring? And you can always count on Kesha to light up the night as she did with this multi-pastel color at the recent AMAs.
Then there are your more timid clients who approach the edge only while holding on to something solid. For them, playing up the fringe is often a welcome suggestion. Show them the look worn by Lizzie Caplan of Showtime’s edgy Masters of Sex series. “Lizzie’s timeless, mid-length bob in the back with slightly asymmetrical sides is, was and will always be edgy!” says Indiana salon owner Nick Ciarletta, artist for Cricket’s Centrix line of styling tools. Nick offers steps to recreate the look: 
STEP 1: Color the new growth a medium brown that evolves into slightly lighter red-brown ends. 
STEP 2: Cut long layers with a deep point-cut texturizing technique to maximize styling options.
STEP 3: Use a twist-cut technique to cut the front fringe a 1660 texturizing shear, which will create controlled but uneven lines for a disheveled look.
