For this first look the hair is cut into an intensely layered shoulder length style. The disconnected layers are texturized with a razor and thinning shears. The texturized fringe also sports an undercut, giving it that super feathery look. The warm medium brown base is worked through with golden blonde and copper highlights and dark brown lowlights.
