THE COLOR: Combine ash and neutral tones to avoid pulling warmth in this rich, chocolate brown shade. On a natural Level 6, apply Joico Vero K-PAK Color 5N + 5A + 20 volume developer to re-growth and Joico Vero K-PAK Chrome (Demi-Permanent) 3/4 A5 + ¼ A7 to midlengths and ends.

THE STYLE: A low side part creates instant glamour. It kicks off sassy game of “peek-a-boo” with eyes and cheekbones, says Carney.
GET THE LOOK: After prepping hair, create a low side-parting. Create two, large vertical sections off of the side-parting that frame the face. Beginning at eye level, place each entire side section in a large barrel curling iron. Rotate the section downward and feed it into the iron. Release and cool each section. Gently brush the hair, taking care to avoid disturbing the wave pattern by tracing the pattern of the wave with the brush. To finish, work a few drops of shine serum, pin one side of the hair to open up the face and mist with hairspray.
THE COLOR: Joico Vero K-PAK Color HLA + 40-volume developer is the “secret ingredient” for creating this sparkling blonde color on Levels 6 to 8. If the hair is darker, make a quarter of your formula Joico Vero K-PAK Color Lightening Booster for an extra level of lift. Process 45 minutes, create heavy highlights with Joico VeroLight Dust Free Lightening Powder + 20 volume developer and process to vanilla/platinum.

THE STYLE: “A sculpted style like this is an elegant red carpet option for textured hair,” says Carney.
GET THE LOOK: Create a low side diagonal parting. Section the hair front to back and ear to ear. Beginning in the nape, create horizontal subsections and lightly backcomb each one with a large tooth comb to create padding and light support for the finished style. Work up the back of the head, gradually reducing the amount of backcombing as you go. Do not backcomb the crown section. Mist strands with hairspray and lightly brush the surface of the hair with a medium oval brush. Roll the ends upward and secure with bobby pins. Mist hands with more spray and gently “dust” the surface of the hair to reduce flyaways and secure the look.
