So how cool is this? My "Ask Jenny" post today is from a girl I pretty much grew up with. As many of you know, I live in the city, but I have a small town heart. I grew up in the town of Walla Walla, Washington. The Napa Valley of Washington they say. Its a small town of about 40,000, so this lovely gal and I went to grade school to high school together. Awesome sauce, right!?? The fabulous lady I'm talking about is Emily Petty. Emily wrote in:

Emily, you are as cute as ever and look exactly the same as in high school, which is a major complement. I've always had major hair envy over your gorgeous red locks. Now, yes your hair is long and judging from the picture, it looks like you don't have very many layers in your hair at the moment.
Long hair is definitely on trend point these days, but with that being said, there's not a whole lot of exciting options for ladies with length. Doing a few settle changes will make a big impact. Lets go over some.
Emily, you have a gorgeous rectangular face, Id say add some really soft face framing layers to the front of your hair. Try adding a few wisps around the cheek bone area and stronger face framing layers starting an inch or two below the jawline. This will soften your bone structure and add more umpf to the front.
Also, I would recommend some long layers to give your hair some added movement and bounce. Judging from the photo, it looks like your hair lacks movement and body. Go for the gold, and add some soft, seamless layers so that your hair has movement, but doesn't look choppy.
I'd also say stick with your fringe, it looks adorable on you. You could even go a tad bit thicker with them, but make sure they are slightly texturized on the ends.
Last, but not least.....Id say add some soft settle strawberry blond highlights to show off the new cut. Your color is gorgeous, but adding a few highlights will really make your eyes and new cut pop.
Do you have a hair question you are dying to know? If so, email it in and I will answer it for you.
