Peach Perfect Cut and Color

Peach Perfect Cut and Color

A collarbone-grazing bob with diffused ends provides an edgy, grown-out feel, but the overall shape remains strong in this stunning look from the Aveda Heart Lands Collection. Tinges of peach, semi-natural roots and a sleek finish all work together to take this rustic look a bit rogue.

    1. Section the hair using the natural parting through the top. Create a vertical subsection through the center back.

    2. Beginning in the nape, create a diagonal subsection on both sides of the head. Using your comb to secure the hair and—to minimize tension, elevation and overdirection—create a line at the desired length that mirrors the angle of the subsection.

    3. Continue working up the head, taking diagonal subsections that alternate from side-to-side. Using a graduated technique, elevate the subsections away from the head, and overdirect them slightly back as you work up the back of the head and toward the sides. Using the previously cut subsection as a guide, cut on the inside of your fingers, mirroring the angle of the subsection.

    4. Continue in this manner, maintaining consistent elevation and increasing overdirection as you work up the back and sides of the head.

    5. Blow-dry and point-cut to refine the outline.
