Heather had an unusual request when she came to Afrodita. Her hair is naturally thick and curly, and as a devoted volleyball player, this became quite a problem.

She wanted to be able to put her hair up in pony tail while playing, but still keep a curly look to her hair without thinning it out too much.
So what strategy did she come up with?

Heather wanted Yoshiko to shave the lower parts of her hair short, beneath the rest of the hair, and hidden away.Yes you heard right, shave! This should give her hair the ability to be tied up into a pony tail, while still looking good and unnoticeable when she let it down outside of volleyball practice.

Yoshiko was happy to tackle this challenge!

So she  shaved the lower part of her hair down to a few cm. (Oh boy!)She cut in a lot of layers to thin it out, but still keep decent volume and depth. Her hair was colored darker to add warmth, with some highlights to give some shine to the warmer style.

The result is a less messy bulk, but controlled and sophisticated curly hair. Heathers casual look has been enhanced, while her invisible cut down hair underneath finally enables her to give it her all in those volleyball matches!
