There's a warmth and a glow that come as a result of sun-kissed skin and the team from Gillis Rowland Hair brings us "Bronze Beauties", which explores the exotic and richly glamorous looks that compliment the bronzed complexion.
Coffee-browns, onyx-black and pale-cream blondes are all flattering enhancements for bronze skin tones, and these hair styles use a variety of waves and textures to create a look for nearly every woman.
Large Swirling Spirals
Long-layering techniques create a balanced style in this high-volume, curly arrangement. The coffee-hued hair is curled into large, swirling spirals. The hairstyle is most easily arrived at by wet set with medium-sized rollers and once dry, the curls can be combed-out using a large-tooth comb.
Cascade of Curls
Rich, glossy black locks are curled into a fall of volume and shine, as the long-layered cut is styled into a full-volume look. The best means of achieving this is to wrap the hair in a wet set using large-sized rollers to maximize the lift at the scalp and create a cascade of curls to spill over the shoulders.
Once the curls are set, use a wide-tooth comb and the fingers to draw out the curls and balance the volume. Afterward, a light misting of hairspray will create a gentle hold to help the style last.
This partial up-style is crafted from medium-blonde locks that are interspersed with golden highlights. With a parting on the right side, the hair is gathered and braided along the sides to gather at the oblique rear left into a spray of streaming spirals of golden blonde strands.
Long Layered Hairstyle
Rich, chocolate brown hair is razor cut into a long, layered style with a long fringe that blends smoothly into the side layers. The hair is blow-dried into large, soft curves and curled using a curling iron to create targeted volume in specific areas. The finished look can be misted with hairspray to create a soft hold.
Moderately Short Hairstyle
In the lighter spectrum of colors, we find buttery-blonde hair accented with pale-milk highlights. The style is a circular cut with uniform layering in a moderately short length. The haircut is styled into a high-volume halo with sharply defined curls. The large looping coils of hair are divided into thin tendrils that reflect the light beautifully.
The curls are best crafted by using a wet roller set and once the curls are set, carefully divide the curls and backcomb them so that the hair is fuller and forms a soft silhouette. A dab of smoothing serum raked through the hair with the fingers and a misting of hairspray and gentle scrunching will create definition in the hair.
Long Blunt Cut Hair
Silky, smooth strands lie in a sleek veil. The hair is blunt cut in a long style with a gently curving fringe that follows closely along the line of the eyes. The sides feature soft layers along the front edge of the hair.
The cut is styled for maximum straightness and minimal volume with blow-dry straightening using a smoothing serum and followed with a flat iron to create perfectly sleek tresses. An extra dab of smoothing serum spread along the fingers can be used to smooth away any flyaway strands and add a glossy finish to the hair.
