Our latest makeover client comes to us with a head full of unruly ringlets. Even though Vanessa Paul says her current style is easy, wearing her tight curls in a ponytail are not flattering to her oval face shape.

Celebrity hairstylist Shirlena Allen knows a thing or two about curly coifs so she gets to work on making Vanessa's hair sexy and simple.



After straightening her strands for precise cutting, Allen snips off the uneven ends and creates much-needed shape with volume. She then wets Vanessa's hair and allows it to dry naturally. And even though this new hairstyle is virtually maintenance-free, it still looks chic.

"Just shampoo, condition and go!" Vanessa says.
