Shannon Hopkins of Fantastic Sams in Corona, California took Katie’s look from basic to brilliant. She started with the color, going from a medium brown with no shape to a stunning coppery red with bold panels of blond on top for some serious dimension. Next, she cut the length to the base of the neck, leaving a bit more length in front. Straightening balm and styling lotion were layered onto wet hair before blow-drying with a round brush for volume. The top was lifted up and under with a large brush and the bottom was flipped up for a kick outward using a smaller brush. A flat iron was smoothed through for control and then spray wax was applied for pliable hold and pomade was used to pinch the ends for a piece-y finish.
