It’s Time for You: 3 Cuts to Welcome Fall


Now that you have stocked up on new fall clothes and school supplies for the children in your life, Suave Professionals(R) parades with you to help you give yourself a back-to-school makeover this season! “Updating your haircut can always be a confidence booster, and a great way to change your overall image to look and feel red carpet ready every day,” says celebrity stylist, Leonardo Rocco. Having worked his creativity on stars like Juanes, Paulina Rubio, Alejandro Fernandez and Aracely Arambula, Rocco can help you look your best with a few simple steps!

Pixie Chic
Undoubtedly, Latinas are trendy and use their hair as another accessory to their already red carpet ready look, but nothing is more refreshing than a unique cut that will make people turn their heads every time you walk into a room! The pixie cut is short on the back and sides, and slightly longer on the top, making it very feminine and easy to maintain. To rock this cut, simply wash hair with an invigorating shampoo and conditioner like Suave Professionals(R) Rosemary Mint Invigorating Clean and then let it air dry. This salon quality system is infused with natural rosemary and mint and increases manageability for hair that is soft and shiny. If you want more impact, use your fingers to comb through a styling aid like Suave Professionals(R) Volumizing Foam, which adds body without weighing hair down, and let it spike around your face with a look-at-me attitude.

Flirty “Lob”
Shoulder-length hair is great for Latinas who are not quite ready to make the leap into a short cut but want more bounce and versatility than long hair gives. A “lob” is a longer version of the bob that starts at your shoulders from the back and gets a little bit longer in the front. To complete this modern style, wash hair with Suave Professionals(R) Almond & Shea Butter Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner. Its natural ingredients, known for their rich emollients, will leave hair well-nourished and beautiful. Afterwards, towel-dry hair and apply a curl enhancer like Suave Professionals(R) Healthy Curls Scrunching Mousse to achieve an irresistible tousled, wavy look.

Be Bold Bangs
If you are intimidated by the idea of having short hair, a good place to start is by cutting bangs first. Bangs are still extremely hot for 2010 and Rocco predicts they will continue throughout 2011. Dont be afraid to add face-framing pieces to your long hair style; it will spice it up without having to sacrifice length. Latinas often strut to their own rhythm so let that shine through from head to toe! An easy way to do this is to cut layers that blend in with your long tresses – this will keep hair livened up with movement so that you find yourself in a never ending song. If you are fighting frizz, which is a common issue, use Suave(R) Professionals Sleek Anti-Frizz Cream. Its moisturizing formula smoothes and softens hair, leaving frizzy or dry hair smooth and manageable.
