INSPIRATION

The City Lights look takes inspiration from the contrast between light and dark in the urban landscape. Thomas Osborn creates a long, layered hairstyle that works in synergy with the colour to enhance the glossy brunette tones.

This versatile cut is ideal for the contemporary city client, allowing her to adapt the look to her ever-changing lifestyle and how she chooses to wear her hair.
