No matter who you are, the holidays bring a whirlwind of parties and events, but how to do your hair? Here are some ideas.
Soft curls in a smooth blowout
A sleek, quick twist
Or a high pompadour for a little edge. This would be easy to soften and have some high glamour.
A client who is now a friend initially found me and just came for haircuts. Who can blame her when she has beautiful blonde hair. Recently, she has moved out of state, but she left with a lot of fun hair history.
The first picture is after trying a bit of soft purple. The next is her before, at an early morning appointment.
We shortened it next and used a combination of purple and green for an iridescent effect.
We shortened it even more.
Daringly short and more intense. It was so much fun!
And then we tried a dimensional steely blue.
And then a blue based ombre.
I’ll miss you!
Below was our starting point.
Some reds are as simple as formulating for roots and ends and too keep the color vivid.
Other reds need a bit more help. This one started light green with compromised ends. I used a very gentle formula to lift that slightly, then filled the blonde with a light warm red.
More red had to be added, as well as violet while isolating the brightness to keep it where we set it. The final result is dimensional and shiny after a reconstruction treatment.
These women went all out with vivid colors. You can go all the way like them, or you can have just a few streaks here or there.
Red and peachy ends above
Curly hair doesn’t have to be heavy or bulky. Here is a client with beautiful curls who used to wear it long with some individualized layering to lighten it.
She decided to go a lot shorter and try something new.
So beautiful and fun!
There’s no need to make a sudden big jump to something different. If you want to make a change but you’re not sure how much of a change you want to make, take some time and take it in stages. This is a client of mine over the last year.
So, so blonde it looks like snow!
This client has beautiful strawberry blonde hair naturally. We subtly accentuated this by adding soft red lowlights.
