Bonnie was ready for a major haircut, but Ken wasn't interested. "Bonnie's hair is beautiful," he says. "All she needs are some subtle changes to the shape to make it less severe." He took off a couple of inches, added a few long layers around her face, and shifted her middle part a bit to the side. With a large-barrel curling iron, Ken created loose waves. Bonnie has never dyed her hair, and why would she? She's routinely complimented on her pure white color. Ken used a clarifying shampoo to lift out yellow tones and add brightness.
Bonnie's Makeup UpdateWith her fair complexion and white hair, Bonnie needs a bit of color to avoid looking washed out.

She should stay away from products with shimmer, which can accentuate crepiness, and can skip lipstick in favor of a neutral lip pencil with a balm on top.
