Catherine Mould for Essensuals Hairdressing

Wearable hairstyles
Catherine Mould, a member of the Toni&Guy Group, under their Essensuals banner, brings a collection of classically inspired and updated hairstyles. The looks are sophisticated, but still wearable by any woman, whatever the mood or image she wants to portray.

Short Layered Hair Style

Short layered hair
The Cut: Here we see a short layered hairstyle with full-curtain fringe and razor texturing.
The Colour: The model has a rich sable haircolor with warm, burgundy-toned highlighting.
The Style: The style begins with naturally wavy hair, blown out until mostly dry with a round brush to create fullness. The application of additional product adds definition to the hair while a low-heat, low-airflow drying stage uses the fingers to arrange the hair in a carefree design.

Haircut with Box Layering

Bob haircut with box layering
The Cut: This short haircut is a variant on the short blunt bob with a beveled edge, box layering and razor texture.
The Colour: The model sports a light yellow blonde with subtle highlighting to add extra spark and depth to the hair.
The Style: This hairstyle begins with naturally wavy hair that is blown dry to maximize the volume of the hair's wave pattern. The fringe area is blown using a round brush to create the side-swept soft frame around the eyes. A light spray of styling product is applied and the hair is scrunched to define the wave pattern.

Curved Curtain Fringe

Long haircut with a curtain fringe
The Cut: This model sports a long, razor cut hairstyle with a softly curved curtain fringe in a blunt cut.
The Colour: This model's satiny hair is natural ebony with high sheen and reflectivity.
The Style: The hair is blown out and smoothed at the top and side with a round brush, and ironed to a silky finish at the fringe and upper sections. The length is left with its blown-out fullness, balancing the weight line of the upper portion of the cut.

Long Natural Curls

Long hair with natural curls
The Cut: This model's long natural curls are textured with chunking texturing to taper the length.
The Colour: The natural light-brown hair of the model's curls is softly enhanced by subtle highlighting for added depth and fire.
The Style: The model's hair is dried with a diffuser attachment and fluffed to maximize the volume of the curls. The hair is parted with a deep curving part and the back and sides are gathered at the nape of the neck, with the length left to spray across the shoulders.
The top section is swept to the side and trailed down along the face to create an asymmetrical frame and bring focus to the eyes. The curls are purposefully left unsmoothed in order to create a softer, romantic and ravished look.

Long Razor Cut

Long razor cut hair with tapering
The Cut: This long razor cut features steep, tapering layers for a light, airy look.
The Colour: The color is a soft, neutral-tone blonde with slight variations, creating dimension in the color.
The Style: This hairstyle can be created with naturally wavy hair by using a soft blow out with a round brush and finger styling with product for added definition, or by rolling straight hair using extra large tools for soft, curving waves.

Mid-Length Blunt Haircut

Medium length hairstyle for curly hair
The Cut: This model's mid-length blunt haircut features chunky texturing to soften the bulky areas and create a more rounded look.
The Colour: The hair is a natural-looking, ultra-pale, golden blonde.
The Style: This hairstyle requires very curly hair, either natural, or permed for masses of tight curls. The hair is dried using a diffuser tool and lifted using the fingers and style product for maximum lift and volume. A light application of spray with scrunching using the fingers gives the curls a touch of definition without losing the softness of the overall style.

Steeply Beveled Bob

Steeply beveled bob hairstyle
The Cut: This is a steeply beveled bob cut with a horizontally cut fringe.
The Colour: The color is a shiny, raven black, which uses the gloss and shine of the strands to give depth to the color and style.
The Style: The hair is blown out with a round brush to be smooth. The lower sections of the hair are backcombed to build volume and create the inverse "V" shape of the style. The bangs are ironed smooth, and shining product is used to add definition to the finished hairstyle.

Steeply Angled Fringe

The Cut: This long razor cut features steeply angled fringe and deep razor texturing.
The Colour: The color, a bright golden blonde, is soft and glazed to maximize the play of light in the hair.
The Style: The hair is blown out with a round brush to smooth the upper portions of the hair, while the lower sections are dried with a diffuser and scrunched with product for added volume and texture in the hair.
