Cassadee Pope’s Hair
Cassadee Pope started her career as the lead singer of West Palm Beach, FL pop-punk band Hey Monday with a spunky a-line bob. She has since grown her hair out much longer and experimented with different color highlights such as red and purple. Now a solo artist, her hair is currently brown with blonde highlights.
Cassadee Pope’s hair is mid-back length. She accents her natural brown color with intense red highlights. She has thin streaks of her hair all the way up to her scalp dyed red as well as large portions of her under layers.
Cassadee Pope’s first foray into bright colors were the purple highlights that added in the winter of 2010. She has two long purple streaks on either side of her face which are mostly hidden, peaking out only at the tips, but become obvious when her top layers are pinned back. This color combo appears in the “Candles” music video, where she wears her hair in loose waves.
Cassadee Pope began growing her hair longer in 2010 and throughout Warped Tour her hair was just below shoulder length. She kept the bleach blonde chunks on the sides, but replaced the blonde in her bangs with a light caramel brown color. Her hair is cut evenly along the bottom, but has many chin-length layers.
Cassadee Pope’s classic hairstyle is dark brown with blonde peek-a-boo highlights. The two blonde chunks on either side of her face are actually thick highlights which go all the way up to her scalp, but they are covered by shorter layers of dark brown hair and only peek out at the bottom. She also has blonde streaked through her bangs. Her hair is longer in the front than in the back, which is called an a-line haircut or asymmetrical bob. The back of her hair has many stacked layers to give it volume and a rounded appearance.
Cassadee explains how her hairdresser does this style: “She basically does the foils of the blonde underneath and then she does the rest – she mixes brown, black, and burgundy to get that kinda purple tint to it. She kinda razors my hair so it’s got some layers and she brings it up in the back so it’s got a nice angle to it. The streaks actually used to be on top and I got sick of it, so we were like ‘what can we do to change it up?’ and so she put them underneath.”
Cassadee Explains her Hair
her favorite hair styling products:
I use a Chi straightener and I use Sunsilk conditioner and shampoo and I use Aussie hairspray which is like my saving grace, I use that all the time – it gives you volume, doesn’t make your hair greasy or anything.
her natural hair color and texture:
My hair color naturally is brown. It used to be like golden-brown and then the older I got it kinda got a little more lighter.
My hair is not naturally straight. It’s a little wavy. Like when I get out of the shower and I don’t blow dry it it gets a little wavy, it’s not too curly or anything. But I still put an iron to it just in case it gets frizzy or whatever because being from Florida I am always really cautious about the humidity.
not being able to shower on tour:
I have such thin hair, that it tends to kinda come down a lot after a day, and it gets a little greasy after a day. So it kinda sucks some times not being able to take a shower every day. But I guess it’s better for you hair in the long run, washing your hair every day is really bad for it.
