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.

A nickel-size amount of Aveda Smooth Infusion Glossing Straightener was run through her damp, naturally curly strands before blow-drying with a round brush for volume. Once dry, the bottom half of her hair was flat ironed for smoothness while the top half was loosely curled with an extra large iron for rounded volume. Her hair was finger-styled into place and misted with KMS Dry Xtreme hairspray for hold.
