Holgie Forrester comes to celebrity hairstylist Andy Lecompte
in need of some "oomph." She says the large clip in her hair and the frosted highlights
were an attempt to add volume and fullness to her fine hair
Using a few simple tricks of the trade, Lecompte and his team show us how to make the most of short, thin hair
on a square face.
First, Lecompte adds lowlights to diminish the contrast between her roots and ends. He then blends in light layers
to help soften her jawline
. And finally, Lecompte styles Holgie's hair with a lot of bounce and movement to create a sense of flirtiness and playfulness.
"I focused on your face shape
and personality," says Lecompte who reveals a new look with plenty of "oomph!"
