New Hairstyle Inspirations For The New Year




As the year comes to a close, we all get the itch for change as we prepare to start fresh in the New Year. To give us a dose of inspiration for a new 2015 ‘do, Pureology Artistic Ambassador Natasha Sunshine shares her favorite haircuts for all lengths and tips on how to choose the best cut for your face shape.


Strong & Short: Kristen Stewart transformed herself from girl-next-door to Hollywood goddess with her sleek, short-layered haircut.
  • Best on: Oval face shapes 
  • Best hair texture: Fine to medium, thick hair can look too masculine 
  • Favorite product: Pureology Colour Stylist Density Definer medium hold crème wax
  • Styling time: 5 minutes
How to Style: Apply a nickel to quarter size of Pureology Colour Stylist Density Definer medium hold crème wax to damp hair. Emulsify product until it is evenly spread across both palms. Pat palms all over, making sure to cover all areas of the head. To finish, rake your hair back and tuck hair behind ears. 


The Undone Bob: Model Karlie Kloss proves that cute can be sexy too with her playful, layered bob. The key to this style is mastering the “undone” style.
How to Style: Spray Pureology Curl Complete Uplifting Curl on damp hair and scrunch in. Apply a dollop of Colour Stylist Cuticle Polisher shine serum, evenly distributing throughout. Blowdry on a medium setting and scrunch a natural texture into the hair. If hair looks too undone and messy, use a 1” barrel iron on every other section of the hair. Point the tip of your iron towards the floor and wind hair in a spiral fashion away from the face (tip: just the ends is fine when curling hair at this length). Scrunch ironed curls and natural texture together to get a more polished yet not-too-perfect wave. 



Layered Lob with Fringe: Alexa Chung nails it with this winning combo of almost blunt bangs and a long layered bob. The hint of auburn in her dark brown hair is the perfect accent to her sultry cut.
How to Style: Add a pea to dime size dollop of Colour Stylist Nourishing Nectar sculpting gel to damp hair. Distribute product evenly throughout. Blowdry fringe (bangs) with a medium-sized round brush. Scrunch the rest of your hair until dry. Add a dime size of Colour Stylist Piecing Sculpt high-holding sculpting fiber paste to ends for added shine and texture from mid-shafts to ends. 


Classic Long Layers: The always stunning Blake Lively wears her golden locks in classic long layers. Be sure to add dimension to hair color, whether blonde or brunette, to make this style look its best.
  • Best on: Most face shapes
  • Best Hair Texture: Medium to thick hair
  • Favorite product: Pureology Colour Stylist Cuticle Polisher shine serum
  • Styling time: 25-35 minutes
How to Style: Apply a generous dollop of Colour Stylist Cuticle Polisher shine serum from mid-shaft to ends. Flip head over and blowdry while scrunching until dry. Using a 1 ½” barrel curling iron, grab large pieces (about 2-3” in diameter) and wrap around the iron in a spiral fashion. Change direction on each section and change the height at which you start the curl. For example, only curl the last 6” inches on some sections, the last 3” on others and some all the way from the root. Rotate all options to create a natural-looking texture. Scrunch all sections together once done and if necessary, flip head back over and add heat from the dryer to loosen curls. For added shine, add a touch more of Colour Stylist Cuticle Polisher.
