Gretchen’s long, lovely locks feature diagonal forward layers with long, swooping bangs. After creating this cut, Victor Paul - owner of Victor Paul Salon, added a few copper accent pieces through her golden honey blonde hair for a unique but soft dimension.

Enjoy Conditioning Spray was applied to help with detangling and then Volumizing Mouse was worked into the root for lift. Thermal Spray was misted on all over to add hold as well as thermal protection. Victor blow-dried the hair straight using a large round brush for control. Once completely dry, he took small sections and curled each around a one-inch iron leaving a tighter, bouncy coil. After all sections were curled, Victor ran his fingers through Gretchen’s hair and then sealed in the sultry style with Super Hold Hair Spray.
