Here we have one of our favourite new bad girls on the hit Melrose Place being spotted leaving the Ken Paves Salon. And this is one look that one would have to perform a double take to make sure they got the right girl. Yes, Ashlee Simpson is starting to develop a reputation similar to Lindsay Lohan when it comes to style, as it appears that she is enjoying changing the hair color with the seasons. We’ve seen her red, platinum, and now she is back to black in a super edgy look that I have to say…I like! This is quite a dramatic shift from her already dramatic red locks, but it is certainly working on her, and a nice change amidst the “non winter” blahs in West Hollywood, California. This look is not so difficult to achieve in terms of styling, if you are looking for a color change as dramatic as Ashlee has here, you definitely want to have that attended to by a professional stylist. But the long, bone straight look with fringe bangs is about as contemporary as the skinny jean that Ashlee is wearing, so give it a whirl as this timeless look will flatter any face shape, and always have you turning heads no matter WHAT hair color you choose.
To get the look that Ashlee has here, you want to start off with the same layered cut that she has here with some nice fringe bangs that will draw attention to those gorgeous eyes. Use some straightening serum on towel dried hair, and blow dry your hair with a flat paddle brush pulling your hair straight as you dry. Use a flat iron to sleek your hair out as much as you can. When you are flat ironing, you want to pin the top sections of your hair up first, and flat iron the bottom sections for maximum fullness and all over straightness. After you have flat ironed your entire head, spritz your hair with some anti-humectant. Immediately following this, you will want to flat iron your hair again, and this will lock in the humectant, and give your hair some beautiful shine. It will also seal the cuticle and ensure that your hair stays straight and glam all day long.
