Ken Says...
"When you're petite, hair that's too long—like waist-length—really makes you appear shorter."

Balancing Act
Ken cut four inches off Milian's hair, until it came just to her bra strap, and added layers, so her style wouldn't visually weigh her down. Then he worked Kérastase Touche Finale shine serum through her dry hair. To prevent Milian's style from getting overly full, Ken used a one-inch curling iron from the midsection almost to the ends. "By minimizing volume," he says, "I gave Christina a vertical silhouette that helped create an illusion of height."

"Dark, heavy hair tends to overwhelm a petite woman. Try a lighter tone."
