The color: "I am going to take her to a warmer base tone and put some dusty blondes in there. It will be blended. She is at a level four, 'chestnut brown.' It will be just a shade lighter."

"First I am going to lighten her eyebrows just a little."

"I will be alternating each section of the hair with light and dark and use a base color that is just a little bit darker than the highlights. It's a bit of a diffusion. It's good for curly hair."

The Cut: "'50s Glam Bob. I am going to take a lot off and a lot out. It will be more angular around the edge." Suzi used a pair of scissors and a razor for "a little bit of texturizing."


What have you noticed for fall? "A lot of people have been asking for Nicole Richie's hair - a layered bob with some swoopy bangs. I think hairstyles are getting simpler and back to basics."

Suzi cut Lauren's bangs so that if she wants to get rid of the little bang all she has to do is switch the part.

Bumble and Bumble Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner - "Not because I want it to be thicker but I want it to be light so I can put weight into it with other products."

Bb Tonic Lotion - "It has tea tree oil in it. It gets the hair a little bit dirty. Which is a good thing. It's easier to work with."

Suzi's Favorite Product: Bumble and Bumble "Does it All Styling Spray" Styling Lacquer. You can use it on wet hair, dry hair. Even as a hair spray but it won't feel like hairspray."

All makeup used was Babette's exclusive house line "Babette" (shadows for $3.50-4, blushes for $5).

Babette: "I am going to do a smoky eye, but not black smoky. I am using the Pewter shadow."
