From Behind The Chair ~ How-To: Bronzed Brunette Color


1970s-Inspired Voluminous, Textured Cut from Alfaparf

The ’70s were about change. A move away from stiff styles and attitudes of the past, a time to embrace creativity and fluidity—and hair was no exception. This cut from Alfaparf Milano takes those ’70s influences and reinterprets them to create a long-hair look that is soft, bouncy and juxtaposed with strong, structured bangs. Click though to learn how to do the cut, and see two different ways to style it!
