e Salon’s “Re-Connection” Color and Cut How-To

Re-connection showcases a modern fusion between a bob and a crop taking elements from both looks to create the re-connection. “The look is versatile,” explains Emiliano Vitale.  “It can be worn both ways. The cut is easy to manage and ultimately creates a free flowing movement in different directions.”

    The remaining hair at the top is worked horizontally, elevated to 90 degrees. Taking guide from the crown, cut square.  The sides of the section are over directed to the middle. The fringe area is over-directed back to a stationary guide at the crown to maintain length.
