The geometric lines in the hair cut make it all about the brows for this look.
I used Sherri Jessee dark brown matte shadow in Expresso and an angled brush to create this shape for Gabrielle’s brow.
I brought the edges of the shadow and brows out extra wide to emphasize an Asian flair with this boxy bob.

The Bachelor contestant Olivia Caridi has shown us that she can style her hair and makeup! Blonde locks, and gorgeous eyes to match - hear more about some of her crazy hair stories and how she got to the beautiful blonde that she is now!

Sherri Jessee, award winning hair and makeup artist tells us about her lovely client, Olivia!
Sherri first met Olivia in May of 2014. It was just days after her college graduation, when she drove from Texas to Bristol, Virginia for her first broadcast TV news job at WCYB.
After having a horrendous hair experience while in Texas and no time to fix it before her first day at work - her mother found my salon through an internet search (there is power in a good website and strong portfolio). After the long drive across the country, before she even went to her new apartment or visited the TV station, she came to my salon for her color correction ... We quickly became friends and I maintained her blonde hair every 4 weeks until she left town to be a contestant on The Bachelor (which was a big secret). 
When she first moved to Virginia,  Olivia had a bright blonde short bob. Over the course of time she decided to let her hair grow a bit longer let the color be a more natural blonde. Olivia maintained her hair with consistent hair appointments. I knew from the moment I met her, she was “going places.” A stunning beauty with looks that remind you of a young Cameron Diaz, she has a fresh attitude and is very bright. With a meteoric rise in a very short time, she was promoted from field reporter to news anchor.

Olivia, was always great at doing her own makeup, she came to me early on for a makeup lesson and she used all of my cosmetics including my organizing makeup bag and magnetic palette.  As she was letting her hair grow longer, we made custom clip in extensions that blended easily with her own hair.

2. Tie off the end of the braid with a clear elastic.

3. Repeat braid on opposite side.

4. Now that you have two completed braids, wrap one braid across the head and use pins to secure.

Hair 101

Long or short? What color? What texture? There are so many options with hair. Award winning hair and makeup artist, Sherri Jessee shares a few of her favorite looks.

Colorful World.

Blonde hair.
The old saying that “blondes have more fun” is so true. No other hair color screams sexy bombshell like blonde. Shades can range from buttery golden to creamy vanilla to icy platinum. The most eye catching of all color choices, you will want to schedule regular appointments with your stylist to maintain the perfect blonde.

Brown hair.
Rich, decadent chocolate browns are shiny and long lasting. Caramels can be added in to create beautiful dimension.

Red hair.
There simply is not a more flattering hair color than a radiant red. Warm tones look lovely against the skin adding beautiful color to complexions whether you opt for golden, copper or true red shades.

Wild colors.
Go ahead and have fun! These funky colors once reserved for only celebrities and rock stars have now gone mainstream. These colors are not usually permanent so they allow you to try bold shades with out a long term commitment.

Highlighting remains the most popular salon color service. A hot trend these days are “baby lights” which are tiny highlights that create a natural looking dimension. Ombre colors subtly graduate from dark to light.

Size Matters.

Long hair.
Long hair provides the most styling options giving one the ability to wear the hair up and down with a variety of textures. If you like to change your hair often, longer locks will allow you to pick a new look each day by varying your styling method.

Medium hair.
Long bobs also known as Lobs and mid-length layered cuts look great on everyone. This is a length that is very feminine and gently frames the face accenting a woman’s finest features.
Short hair.
This is a look for the truly daring. Go for a fun pixie or short can still have styling variations with short hair, too.
