“We wanted to make her style effortless—not too reliant on hairdressing,” says Cutler, so stylist Dean Holcombe gave Lisa’s hair a defined shape that was long on top and short on the sides. “It’s much lighter around her face, so it brings out her eyes and features,” Cutler says. Colorist Rachel Bodt added highlights to a rich base color to emphasize individual curls. “This has such a great shape and the highlights help show off the curls—and cover the gray,” says Lisa. “I love it!”

Best for: Wavy or curly hair; all face shapes, except for heart shapes or anyone with a strong jaw.

Styling tips: To minimize any frizz, Heser applied Cutler Specialist Protectant Treatment Spray ($21, dermstore.com) and Redken Fresh Curls Curl Refiner ($30, soap.com) to Lisa’s hair when it was wet. (Other products to try: Bumble and Bumble Prep spray, $20, bumbleandbumble.com; and Aveda Be Curly Style-Prep, $24, aveda.com). Heser then blew Lisa’s hair dry while twisting sections of it around her fingers. “You’ll get defined curls without frizz,” says Heser. Finish with Redken All Soft Argan-6 Multi-Care Oil ($21.50, amazon.com) or Pureology Precious Oil ($40, ulta.com) to enhance shine.
