SPICE UP WITH SUBTLE COLOR AND A FACE-FRAMING CUT
Ebony Mines, 22; sales manager
Problem: "Plain. Blah. That's my hair."
Pipino's solution: Letting Ebony's hair go naturally curly would emphasize the roundness of her face, so she should keep it sleek (it's been chemically relaxed). Pipino added bangs to soften her high forehead and bring out her stunning eyes and mouth. Cutting a few layers and a couple of inches off the length all around gave the shape more definition and style, and increased the body. To break up the solid dark brown color, which made her hair look stiff, Pipino added light golden brown highlights and a gloss to protect and moisturize.
Results: "Now, this cut gives me some style," said Ebony.
