What a stroke of beauty! This 'do is ideal for women who keep their hair short but with a little extra volume. The color adds dimension and depth, creating attention to the face.
This look we created for our model, who wants to grab attention on a night out, has a short asymmetrical haircut, with lowlights that are visible. This style also includes red highlights on her sideburns and a layer of mascara on each eye, giving her a smoky effect. This red-lipped look is perfect for parties and special occasions. The right side of the face looks more defined, while the left side gives a natural look that highlights her best features. The back of this incredible asymmetrical haircut is tapered into the nape, blending into the sides and top jagged cut layers that give this look maximum texture. This hairdo is perfect for those with fine to medium hair and is excellent for turning heads. This asymmetrical haircut is perfect for women that have round, oval, or heart face shapes. The sweeping layers on the side and straight part will make your hair look longer.
You can maintain this hairstyle with regular trimming after 4 to 6 weeks and toning treatments to maintain your black color and red highlights if you see your roots turning into their natural color. This hairstyle is great for both causal and formal occasions. It is easy to change your look with this hairstyle, and it needs product for hold and shine.
