7. Graduated Layers

Oh yeah, I have heard this one before. Does a diploma come with those layers? Just kidding. Do you know the hairstyle Victoria Beckham has? Where it is longer on the top? I always liked her hairstyle and that is what graduated layers mean.

6. Dusting

This one, I already knew, but some of you may not know. This is where you get a tiny trim at the end of your hair. This is to maintain the ends.

5. Back Combing

This is a teasing trick that is used in today’s world. The hair is pulled tight, then with a bristle brush, it is pushed down toward the root.

4. Rough Dry

Many of you probably rough dry and don’t even realize it. This is where you only use your hand for texture when you are blow drying your hair.

3. Double Process

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Can you guess what this one means? When someone mentions a double process, they are talking about having two color treatments in one setting. Take a look at Christina Aguilera, she had a double process done. It's also when you strip the color away in one step, then add another color, like pink or blue, over the new blonde parts.

2. Lowlights

This is where you paint sections of your hair darker. It gives that rich look. Take a look at Sarah Jessica Parker as she had that done.

Some refer to the bangs as being the fringe area. This is the area that is above the forehead at the front of the head. Generally, it does not extend further than the outer corner of your eyes.
