Ashley Graham's hair stylist shares chop secrets
Ashley Graham was worried she’d miss her long hair after getting the chop.
The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model unveiled her long bob on Instagram earlier this week (beg22Aug16), which was perfected by hair stylist Andrew Fitzsimons. He’s worked with Ashley for a while now and together they came up with the perfect cut for the brunette beauty.
“She was scared she was going to miss her long hair,” he told Teen Vogue.
“She asked to sleep on it. I went home and sent her a mood board with Alexa Chung and Ciara and Margot Robbie, who she liked the best. We decided we’d go blunt down to the collarbone, (and add) layers around the face to accentuate her bone structure.”
Andrew has also added length to her locks, providing Ashley with Easilocks extensions earlier this year (16). However the tape-in tresses were taken out when the model went on holiday, leading to the chic hair transformation.
They wanted the new style to have body, with Andrew listing the products he used to get the gorgeous finish.
“I did a blow-out with Alterna Thick and Full Volume Mousse,” he said. “You can take a medium-sized curling iron and curl in alternating directions for a lived-in, model off-duty wave. Then, I spray Alterna Cleanse Extend Dry Shampoo all over and blast the hair with (the) blow-dryer on the cold setting to mess it up a bit. It gives a chic, piece-y look.”
Currently the pair is busy working on Ashley’s looks for her role on America’s Next Top Model. On both their Instagram pages, Ashley and Andrew have been sharing photos of her various hairstyles, including bold long blonde extensions.
“Close up of the second SLAY of the day on @TheAshleyGraham for the America's Next Top Model finale fashion show tonight in NYC #hairXandrew#AshleyGraham (sic)” Andrew captioned a shot of the lighter locks.
