Squared Layering TDS-10-1140

Ashlyn’s color is a medium chocolate brown base with ultra-fine golden highlights for little sparks of lightness and shine. Long square layers give her hair tons of shape and movement while choppy layers around her face bring out her features.

Square Layers TDS-10-1139

A fun shoulder-length style with square layers for volume and a slight angle in the front for the feeling of exaggerated length.

To create this volumized, flippy style, mist thermal spray onto damp strands and then added mousse at the base before blowing the hair dry with a round brush. Take two-inch sections and pull up on top while drying, turning the brush several times to create lift, volume and roundness through the length.  On the ends, switch to a medium round brush and roll the ends upward. To finish off the style, mist with volumizing spray.

Ultimate Length PON-10-1130

Kayla naturally has a lot of hair, but wanted to play around a bit with adding color. PON International stylist and hair extension specialist, Jaime Queenin added human hair extensions to give her about two inches more length while introducing some new and lighter color into her natural dark brown base. Once the extensions were applied, Jaime blended them in by cutting long choppy layers and then added a “bitten” effect into the bangs.

Side-Parted Bob PON-10-1127

Tiara had mid length, grown out hair with a reddish tint that had faded. For her new look, Pon applied a rich and chunky auburn highlight though a medium brown base for soft dimension. He then cut a chin length, slightly A-line bob with a solid edge. Once the foundation was in place, he applied lots of layers for movement with short ones in the crown for a hint of height. Fun little bitten bangs were added to create face-framing appeal.

Bob Perfection PON-10-1125

A timeless layered A-line bob that rests at the middle of the neck in back and drops drastically into points in the front with a heavy swoop bang.

Mist styling spray all over and then add mousse at the root. After blow-drying with a round brush and pulling up on top to provoke volume, the ends are flat ironed. Add styling spray and tease at the root for more volume. Mist with shine spray and finishing spray for luster and hold.

Vamped Up Layers PON-10-1123

Nicole, Pon’s first model, had long, grown out blonde strands and wanted a more refined style. Pon simply went in and highlighted heavily with an almost platinum hue, then low lighted with chunky panels of brown for depth.

Flicky Mid Length PON-10-1115

Before Danielle had fine, shoulder length hair with a muddy, almost greenish dark brown color.

Angie Oh Noroña (of PON International in Anaheim Hills, California) started her new look by adding a series of sporadically placed highlights and low lights to give dimension and leave a rich, caramel tone.

After cutting about 3 inches off the length, she added bangs and removed some of the bulk, inserting texture for movement through Danielle’s modified shag bob.

Bitten Layers PON-10-1113

Carolina’s hair was long with grown out layers with a faded brown color. Her natural (level 6) light brown shade had some previous color and she was frustrated with the frizziness with her natural wave.

Kaytee Varchetto of PON International in Anaheim Hills, California brought up the length about four inches then textured the perimeter of Carolina’s hair. She added layers at the crown and around her face and a heavy, jagged bang.

Wispy Pixie PON-10-1111

Kaylan’s longer, light brown length was cut into a longer pixie on top with shaggy wisps through the ends. A medium warm brown base was then introduced while gold and mahogany panels were added for dimension.

To style, PON International Pon Söön styling creamwas worked through and then Turn it up styling spray and Fringy were layered on. A round brush was used while blow-drying to coax volume on top and then a Denman brush was introduced on the flicky bits. Once completely dry, a dab of Dü da düwas emulsified onto Pon’s hands and used to pinch and twist areas to finish.


For Hayley, Pon took her longer, all-brown hair from basic to brilliant, all while leaving most of the length. He cut a scooped out shag-inspired look with curvy layers on top, piece-y layers around her face and shaggy ends. For the color, a rich brown made the base color pop while soft accents of caramel delicately framed her face.
