The Clynol Team brings us another unique twist in creative hair design. In 'Shoot To Win,' two stylists team up with one model to bring you two diverse representations of beauty. Each of the four teams is working with waves and textured cuts and shapes to provide flattering and fundamentally sound styling.
The collection works with the blonde color palette, featuring shades ranging from dark beige blonde to creamy pale blonde and everything in between. In many cases, the contrasts come in the form of straight versus wavy styling, structured looks versus free-flowing styling, or variations in length.
All in all, the hairstyles are attractive, flattering, and desirable. These styles represent the pinnacle of ready-to-wear hairstyles and are sure to be seen on the streets in the months to come.

Short Blonde Hair

Short hairstyle with layers
Stylists Elizabeth Brierly and Amy Aitkenhead of Hair@Jibe in Carlisle, Cumbria, present two hairstyles in a single cut. The medium features a dense head of buttery-blonde hair with medium texture and lightly wavy natural movement.
The first photo showcases the short, layered haircut with textured ends styled forward in a blow-dry, emphasizing smoothness. This style features no parting and sweeping curves to add interest to the rounded silhouette. A dab of smoothing serum or pomade is used to create definition in the hair and isolate strands.
The second look in this pairing is an elegant, frothy up-style for short hair that boasts volume. The hair is likely set in wet rollers to create lasting curls, and through a blend of backcombing and heat styling, the whipped confection of hair is achieved. Use a stiff-hold styling gel for structure in the roller set, and finish with hairspray to secure the final arrangement in place.

Hairstyles for Milky-Blonde Hair

In Thornton Hough, Wirral, you'll find The Hair Spa, where Lorraine Ellis and Andrea Williams introduce their additions to the 'Shoot To Win' collection. The hairstyles are built upon a base of fine-textured, milky-blonde hair cut into a shoulder-length bob with light layering and a blunt fringe.
The first look achieves a balanced style by combining sleek, smooth styling in the fringe to highlight the clean-cut line and glossy shine of the hair, with soft, high-volume curls at the sides to create a wider, fuller silhouette. This style draws attention to the eyes and creates the illusion of a smaller face.
In the second look, the style is entirely asymmetrical, featuring a one-sided sweep of the hair from right to left, extending into a platform of structured curls. This hairstyle is best achieved with a roller set using firm-hold products to ensure maximum strength and staying power in the curls. Backcombing to intertwine the hair fibers, along with generous use of hairspray, will provide the necessary strength and integrity to maintain the style's shape and longevity.

Short Curly Hairstyles

Short haircut for a round face shape
These two hairstyles are studies in length and come to us from Vanessa Horricks and Sarah Green of VIP in Cheslyn Hay, Walsall. Both cuts and styles are crafted in a pale, creamy blonde of medium texture and curly waves. Both looks will require diffused drying and care to protect and maintain the integrity of the curls.
The first style is a chin-length blunt haircut with a curved cut line along the lower perimeter, creating the rounded edge and elliptical shape of the overall style. This allows the bulk of the hair to peak at nose-level, drawing horizontal focus and making it ideal for narrow face shapes and angular features.
The second look is much shorter and more daring than its longer counterpart. The haircut is a wedge-based cut angling up from the nape area and increasing in length toward the parietal ridge and fringe lengths. The majority of the bulk of the hair is focused on the top and crown areas of the head, creating added height in the style. This is a good choice for those with rounded or shorter face shapes who need an elongating influence.

Rope Braid and Fall of Curls

SStarting from a base of long-layered, medium-fine hair colored in dimensional tones of buff, beige, and tan, this dark blonde serves as a lovely canvas for stylists Anna Clinton and Haley Millington of K2 (Kameo) in Shrewsbury. The layers are razor-textured for a soft finish, and the color consists of a medium neutral base with pale highlights, soft lowlights, and a few drops of golden threads throughout. The color technique is fine-grained but prominent enough to ensure that the streaks of color accentuate the curls and waves of the hair.
In the first hairstyle, the stylists have incorporated a classic style element to create an asymmetrical design. One half of the head is woven into a rope braid, drawn across the top of the head in an 'Alice band' effect, while the left side of the hair falls in soft, fluffy curls that caress the cheek. The fringe is styled smooth and sleek, gently swept across the brow to frame the eyes.
In the second hairstyle, the hair cascades in a simple fall of curls. A small, off-center parting serves as the origin point from which the hair spills forth. The fringe curves across the brow and around the right eye, while the sides and back flow down in soft, rolling coils and curls. Note the difference in the curls between the two styles: the curls in this style are more defined and intact, while the previous style featured curls that were more frothy and diffuse.
