How to choose an offbeat cut and colour

Want your own hair consultation from celebrity hairstylist Bill Angst? Send at least TWO well-lit, preferably hi-res photos of you (one close-up, one full-body) with a brief description of your hair texture, colour and main hair challenges to info@beautyeditor.ca with “Bill Angst Hair Consultation” in the subject line.

Q: Hello Bill, I am writing you all the way from Europe. I have thin and dry hair—I have dyed my hair for about 10 years in all possible colours—and I always wish for more volume. I like to experience and play with lengths and colours, but for the past four years, I was totally blonde. I never liked uniform colours, they get me bored so quickly. 

Hair consultation - Andrada

Andrada likes to play with different lengths and colours.

For now, I am thinking about letting my hair grow, because I miss my length. Thank you very much and I am looking forward to your advice. — Andrada

A: Andrada, thank you for your request.

I love your daring hair colour choices, but I would prefer to see you take this colour to the next level. 

Here is a picture of a deeper colour that I feel would be better for your complexion:

To really make it pop, add some black lowlights. Not thick and chunky—more like a soft blend that tricks the eye.

I agree you should have longer hair with skinny ends. Also, I would like to see one full eye and some of your lovely jawline.

Here is an example of a cut that would give you the edge that you like, and help you rock this new colour idea:
