Get The Look: Travis BandieraWe've got two very different styles for you to play with this Summer. First up, this super strong yet flippy cut from Travis Bandiera, co-owner of Royals Hair.
When creating this look I wanted it to be a modern take on a classic shape; the entire Maverick collection (which this look is taken from) is about breaking out of the mould and having an edge.
When it came to the colour, I went in to pre-lightened sections and used a panelling technique framing the fringe and the underneath of the hair. I also chose to alternate three different grey pastel toners throughout the hair, to give it a multi-dimensional finish, even with the hair being styled quite smooth.
Once I had decided on the placement of my colour I needed to decide how and where I wanted to start with the haircut. Using the model's features I created sharp and hard lines, using only my comb and a mini clipper: this gave me optimum control while keeping the hair in place during the process.
When finishing the hair, I used a comb and Denman brush in the root area as I wanted zero elevation through the fringe and root area to give the illusion that it was almost hugging the head. While finishing the mid-lengths and ends of the hair with a flexible hairspray, I used the tips of my fingers to create a fan-like shape, complementing the haircut and showing off the panelling techniques in the colour.
