Ashley’s almost solid, light blonde hue washed her out while overgrown layers made her hair look too long and unpolished. Pon (Saradeth of PON International in Anaheim Hills, California) cut a better length, touched up the roots and then added a neutral lowlight to provide some much-needed dimension.

Pon personalized the cut by adding lots of layering and a side-bang, creating an almost shag-like finish with a scooped out appeal on the length. A perfect option for medium lengths, this cut offers a piece-y, wispy vibe that takes us away from the ever-popular bob and into another generation of shags.

PON International Elevate was applied at the root while California Tousle was misted on all over. Pon blow-dried with a round brush, pulling sections up on top for added volume.

He misted sections with Turn it up styling spray and loosely curled each piece, leaving the ends out and alternating the curl direction back and forth from section to section. A small amount of Ponder Powder was sprinkled on the roots for added volume and the ends were pieced with Dü dã dü styling paste.
