Lita's Avant Garde Updo
Model, Lita, came in with hair almost down to her waist and hadn't had a cut from a professional since she was 18 years old. Beauty Stylist, Cheryl Holterman, gave her a new look for her new life as she prepares to move out of state.
Before the big chop, Cheryl styled her hair in to an avant garde updo, incorporating two types of braids (dutch and fishtail), a chignon and a double french twist. She then added a feather embellishment for some last minute flair.
After trying this fantasy updo look, Cheryl took it down and cut off 14 inches of hair and gave her a beachy bob and added some soft waves. Lita plans to donate this gift of hair to Wigs for Kids.
