Cheryl Likes a '70's Grad'

Paul cut Cheryl's '70's Grad' and tells us the inspiration behind this fab shorter style....

'Creating a new look has been talked about for a while but this cut was just done on the spur of the moment. We were backstage in Cheryl's dressing room and we both knew the look we wanted to create, and so, an hour and a half later Cheryl had a completely new look. I wanted to give Cheryl a cut that was feminine and sexy and almost an easy, 'ready to go' cut, that daily can just fall into place.

The cut is subtly graduated with a shaggier texture. It's got a slight 70's, Joan Jett texture that keeps it cool. What I really like about this style is that it's so wearable and easy to maintain - it looks amazing after it's just been styled but then it also looks great the following day when it's slightly lived in and undone. Cheryl has great hair, so it's always a pleasure to cut.'

To keep shorter styles looking great Paul recommends prepping the hair before styling to create a strong foundation, the Percy & Reed Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Balm is a great product to use on wet hair before styling.

'This hair style is all about using the right product but not over styling - imperfections can look great!'
