Color shock is 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.

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, who has his own product line as well as being a guest 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 with a 1660 texturizing shear, which will create controlled but uneven lines for a disheveled look.
