Alex Ioannou of Trio Salon took on Megan's new hair look.
"When she came in, she had this naturally curly hair, which was
really dying for a hair cut," says loannou. "It was time. She had
neglected her hair as many of us do; we don't put that as a
priority. We really needed to take off enough hair off of the
bottom to get rid of the yucky broken ends, but really to give her
a shape more flattering for her, kind of bring it up-to-date a
little bit more."
In addition to taking off the length, he used a combination of
graduated layers. Rather than cutting for a style, he says he cut
for a shape that allows her to style any way she wants. He says he
simply used a blow dryer to finish the style.
"For a busy mom on the go, she might not have the time to get up
every day and sit there to blow dry it straight and flat iron it.
So it is a shape that will work just as well with her doing
