Rondolor wanted a cut. Not just any cut, he wanted the cut of cuts. He had a lot of thick hair, giving it a little bit of round image to it. Also, the front part of his hair tended to curl too much.
Yoshiko used japanese hair straightening on the front part of this hair, the only real way to reduce those curls for him for good. A lot of texture was created, giving it a lighter look. Body was kept back at his head, to achieve the look he wanted.
