Ladies & Gentlemen!
We often go through the year with the same mundane hairstyle and forget to realize that the very thing that is sitting atop our heads is the most versatile accessory we can play with to instantly change up our look! Whether your hair is short and cropped, medium and shaggy, or long and lush..hair is one way we can express our style from day to day.
Now I’m not talking about having to dye your hair an outrageous color everyday, but simple changes such as changing the part in your hairline, straightening it stick straight, playing with texturizing balms and waxes, waving it with a 3 barrel curling iron, using hot steam rollers, braiding it for a beached wave, pinning it into a low messy bun, wearing accessories such as headbands, the list goes on.

I think we can all agree that hair makes a huge difference when it comes to enhancing your natural features and skin tone. Short bobs, medium waves, blonde highlights, center parts, smooth and sleek, Jessica has a universal face shape to pull these styles off.
When it comes to choosing a hairstyle that fits you, start by focusing on your face shape and which style flatters it.
