At the beginning of the third season of the series “Heritage”, there are several episodes that clearly outline how the character played by Jeremy Strong. Kendall Roy transforms from a swindler into a dominant alpha male, but the evolution is most evident at the moment when Roy’s girlfriend Naomi Pierce, in a masterful performance by Anabel Dexter-Jones, makes the perfect, trendy bean.
“No one gave us any instructions, it was up to us,” said Ashley Javier, a longtime Dexter-Jones hair stylist. In the first seasons of “Heritage”, which became a hit on HBO, the heroine’s hair remained, in his description, “cute and conservative.” But in the third season, it was decided that the heroine should look spectacular with a new haircut. This is a textbook technique – and we can all adopt it. After all, a radical haircut is much more eloquent than any talk of change.
“For me, the bob is the most important haircut of all time that a woman can do,” says Javier. It was worn by emancipated girls of the 1920s, flappers; it was chosen by women in the 60’s, when thanks to the British hairdresser Vidal Sessun it was possible to choose a haircut instead of a fancy hairstyle.
But, as you know, those who have at least once tried to side with the bean, the devil – in detail. All the beauty and aesthetics of the haircut can be “killed” by asymmetry (“Bad taste!” – exclaims Ashley) or excessive volume on the back of the head, which gives the hair the shape of a mushroom (“Just horror”). But the point here is not to cut like a stencil (because it is just able to devalue any trend). The self-proclaimed king of bob haircuts, Ashley Javier tells you what you can and can’t do when choosing a new hairstyle, and why you shouldn’t be afraid to cut your hair shorter. In the end, the same Anabel Dexter-Jones celebrated the New Year with a fresh pixie haircut.
“Every time I do a haircut, I take references with me,” says Ashley. – This time I showed Anabel the video of The Smiths “How Soon Is Now” – there in the bob model, which in the 80’s everyone was obsessed with. I also showed her flapper beans, which, like a hat, fit snugly to her head. But we made the haircut modern with the help of length, the bob ended at the level of the lower hairline. This made it possible to visually stretch the neck. Then I worked on the back of my head to prevent excess volume and to concentrate it right next to my face. In addition, there is no sharp diagonal in the front, and this is a really important nuance. “
Take care of authenticity
“Bob’s haircut is misunderstood: ‘Oh, you have to be tall for this haircut,’ ‘Oh, I’m not skinny enough,’ ‘Oh, I’m not good enough for that.’ In the end, I always start with the “long bob” version. Then the girl is no longer afraid to decide on a shorter version of the hairstyle. After all, beans suit everyone. He beautifully outlines the pattern of the head, lengthens the neck, can be both feminine and glamorous. It feels like you’re wearing luxurious clothes.
In fact, there is no clear rule on how long the haircut should be, but I like it when the occipital length is about the jaw line and the front strands are up to the chin. But if you have an elongated face, I advise you to raise the length above the jaw line.
Keep it clean
“Properly trimmed beans awaken in people FOMO (fear of missing out – fear of missing something important). And now everyone wants a haircut.
The beauty of modern beans lies in its purity, similar to the pure cut of designer things. He should not be tortured, tortured or imprisoned. I use a good styling cream to make my hair look soft. Of course, you can strive for a tougher hair texture – it gives a unique punk look to the hair.
But I think it’s a bit outdated. What is really fashionable is working with natural hair texture. The form should speak for itself. Use a really good shampoo and conditioner, add an indelible cream. Let your hair dry naturally and let it lie down. Slight negligence is better than being too careful.
Tip for those who can not do without hot styling: when using a straightener, pull down, and closer to the tips – a little out. You do not need the hair to be too round or the strands to hang down like curtains. And if you are going to dry and pull your hair, then go nowhere. With such a fresh styling will have to sleep.
