How to Score Danielle Fishel’s New Summer Cut and Color

by

Celebrity hair stylist Laurie Heaps recently worked her magic on actress Danielle Fishel, who we know as Topanga from Boy Meets World, and it has us inspired to be adventurous in the world of hair this summer! We love a good before and after, so check out Danielle’s Instagram photo below of her hair in Boy Meets World and her new summer cut. Read on to learn how Laurie created this fun, summery look.

Get the Look

To create honey blonde highlights, Laurie added babylights through the roots with some brighter pieces around her face and plenty of blonde balayage on the ends. “For the cut, we added lots of piecey layers, and I took a lot of weight out of the ends for a textured look,” explains Laurie. “Once the cut and color were finished, Danielle wanted me to do something less polished and more undone and effortless looking.”

Here’s how Lauria created Danielle’s hair:

  1. “Danielle has naturally curly hair, so I applied Redken Straight Lissage Align 12 Lotion all over the hair. It strengthens while adding control to your blowout for sleek results.
  2. Next, I blew dry the hair with a large round brush. However, I made sure to take small sections. You will have more control while drying and can smooth each one perfectly straight.
  3. Once dry, I went in and then took larger two-inch sections of hair and sprayed them with White Sands Liquid Texture Medium Hold Thermal Spray. It holds the curl in until you shampoo it out, yet the hair is soft and brushable. It is also thermal intelligent, so the more heat used with an iron, the shinier the hair becomes.
  4. I then wrapped each two-inch section around the DURA CHI 1″ Ceramic Spring Curling Iron, leaving the ends out. It is important to alternate the direction of the hair each time to give a tousled look.
  5. To finish, I took the CHI Original Professional 1″ Ceramic Flat Iron and ran it through the ends and tapped it in areas that looked too curled.”

The Perfect Knotted Fishtail Chignon Tutorial

by

We know that, oftentimes, up-dos require a bit of mastering and maneuvering — 9 times out of 10, they aren’t for amateurs like myself. But this sophisticated up-do by Latest-Hairstyles.com’s contributor Roxie Jane Hunt isn’t as tough as it looks. With a few simple braids, a knot here and there, and a pin to lock it in place, this look is perfect for all those long-haired girls of the world who are looking for a new spring hairstyle. Hunt calls this look “The Perfect Knotted Fishtail Chignon.”
“The best part is that you can take this unique up-do from a cozy daytime style to haute evening look,” she explains. “All you need to get started are some clear hair ties, a few large hair pins, and a good texturizing braid spray.”

Below, Hunt walks us through their beautiful look!

Step 1: “Part the hair down the back and create two side-by-side fishtail braids. Secure the ends with clear elastics.”

Step 2: “Starting at the ends and working your way up, gently pull the braids apart a bit. This will add texture and fatten them up a bit.”

Step 3: “Now take your braids and tie them together once, and then again. If your braids are long enough, tie them a third time. Don’t tie them too tight however, as you will want to leave the ends free.”

Step 4: “Now take the whole knot in one hand and gently roll it into your head, tucking the ends inward towards your your scalp so that they are hidden.”

Step 5: “Now take a large hair pin and pin the bun into the head, beginning at the top. Make sure to get the teeth of the pin through a braid and into the base of the hair under the bun.”

Step 6: “Use another large pin to pin the bun into the head from either side, securing the braided knot into the head. Add as many pins as you need to until your fishtail chignon feels secure.”

Braided Details

Braided Details

Keeping our hair in check every day of the week and trying to make it look like we just stepped out of a Pantene commercial takes time and dedication. Often we prepare ourselves ahead of time by setting our alarm clocks an hour earlier than usual, but let’s be honest; none of us have all the time in the world. That precious extra hour can often be taken as that extra hour of beauty rest we need.

However, once we’re up and ready to take on our day with the ambition of a superwoman, we are left with little time and no idea how to style our hair. This is where braids come to the rescue! Braids are an easy way to add some detail to your locks if you leave them out or style them into an updo. They add that extra glamour, making it seem as effortless and chic as if you really did step out of a hair commercial.

Hairstyles used with braids are endless and can always be experimented with to create more styles. You can dress up or dress down a look with whichever one you choose to adorn.

Milkmaid braid updos are perfect for whether you’re going casual or slightly formal. They’re quick to perfect by parting your hair into two braids of your choice, and then wrapping them over your head like a crown. Voilà! You’ve created a gorgeous updo that will be sure to receive compliments all day.

Fishtail Braid

Fishtail braids are another favorite in the braiding world because it adjusts to any way you want your hair styled. You can put it into a chunky side braid where the fishtail is messed up a little, or you can go with the classic style, beautifully showing off the colors and texture of your hair.

The most simple to-do braids out of the bunch have to be French braids and the old school triple-locks braid. These two are simple enough to create an actual headband out of your hair. The braids will show no matter which one you pick and provide a textured touch to an everyday look.

Lighter Locks

Lighter Locks

The saying “Blondes have more fun” is reigning true this winter, with many people turning their locks to the light side (Hair wise, of course). Many celebrity beauties have gone much lighter than what is their “normal look,” including Kim Kardashian and Elle Fanning. The labeled platinum color is one that will definitely have you standing out in the crowd once it’s dyed on. It’s a bold color that, when done right, has your hair shining healthy and naturally like a golden goddess.

Of course, when executing this color it’s best to check out a quality hair salon that knows exactly what it’s doing. Your hair is going to be in their hands, so make sure when you pick one you feel comfortable with the hair stylist. Deciding to go to a lighter color from a darker color can cause damage to your locks and requires a lot of upkeep once done. Let’s just say it is a new-do commitment, and a beautiful one at that.

Having a full head of blonde can be a bit scary and a bold move, no doubt. If you want to start off slow or not have the full blonde affect, highlights or an ombré job can replace that. They’ll still contain the lighter locks trend, but it’ll also keep true to your natural color by fading into it. This way, you can have the best of both hair worlds!
