Julia Roberts-Inspired Shaggy Layered Razor Trim Tutorial by Aaron Pursell
Emily is a regular for Pony, she is growing her hair out. She came on with an old photo of Julia Roberts from Pretty Woman days. She wanted to have that bouncy curl feeling. I connected her bangs to her face framing and just trimmed her ends a tiny bit, giving it some structure to grow.
