Kimemily Pham, stylist at Excellent Hair Salon in Fremont, California created sophisticated, classy, long layers for her client, Renelle.

Inspiration: "Renelle came into the salon with unruly, frizzy hair that had no shape or style. She is a young working mother who wanted a style that she could easily manage between salon visits -- a look that was versatile and required little fussing -- kind of like Eva Longoria’s look."

I gave her a sophisticated, classy, long-layered haircut starting at the chin line, with a long fringe to frame her face. This added movement to her hair, while reducing the weight and maintaining the length."

HOW-TO: Long-Layered Hair Cut and Fringe Style


"Before cutting, I began by applying Matrix Oil Wonders Sharp Cut Oil to her damp hair. Once the hair cut was completed, I styled her hair using a #390 Technique Thermal Round Brush.

Finally, I sealed the hair with Sexy Hair Smooth and Seal Anti-Frizz Shine Spray."
