New Kerahold!!!

Starting scenario: Isabel’s hair is about a level 2 naturally. It was previously colored with permanent hairdye at a level 3, with about 2.5 inches of regrowth, so we needed to break the ends up to give more overall dimension and avoid the ever-dreaded hot roots.

First, we balayaged through the ends of the hair with Keratin Complex “It’s a Blonde Thing” Lightener and 20 Volume Devloper.
This not only broke up the previous color, but gave a slight ombre’ effect as well. We slightly teased the ends, and applied the lightener from ends up, never going higher than her temples, because no one likes an ombre’ reminiscent of a bowl cut. After processing for 25 minutes we shampooed out the lightener with Keratin Complex Blondeshell Shampoo, which is great for any hair color where a cool tone is desired, not just blondes.

We then applied Kerahold Color in 4.6 from scalp to 2 inches out. We had mixed for the regrowth with the standard 1:1 ratio with 20 volume Kerahold developer. After applying to the regrowth, we mixed the same 4.6 Color at a 1:1.5 ratio with 20 volume Kerahold developer, and applied to the lengths of the hair, making sure to saturate the hair with color. This ratio achieves an end result of a more translucent and vibrant color. We processed the entire head for the full 35 minutes. After washing and conditioning, we used KC Blondeshell Brightening Oil cocktailed with Vita Volume Foam for the blowdry. Before curling, we misted the hair with Flex Flow hairspray, which is a great working and finishing spray.

Each Tantowel towelette is concentrated with a self-tan formula to give you a quick and even application with no streaking, mess or fuss. Tantowel will produce a uniform, natural looking glow within 2 to 4 hours. There are two shades to make it easy, classic and dark. Classic for fair skin tones and dark for more medium to dark skin tones.
On the Glow daily moisturizer is the perfect fix for year-round radiance. It contains DHA and Erythrulose skin color enhancing ingredients that slowly develop a natural-looking glow with no stains or dyes.

Would You Be Daring Enough to Try This Look?

What do you think of Kate Moss’ gold star make-up? Would you be daring enough to try this look this weekend?
Although I’ve never tried this look myself, I loved this picture and thought it could inspire those “trendsetters” out there….
How to:
1.      Make a star stencil.. or if you’re crafty and can draw one free hand, you’re one step ahead!
2.      Using Sorme Foundation brush #963, dab brush into Sorme eye shadow in Glow and fill in star stencil with a light layer around your already lined eye and eyebrow. This eye shadow has a slight shimmer to it. When it is applied lightly, it give the best sheer gold color.
3.      Apply Sorme eye shadow in Flash on top of the star to get the glitter flecks for the “star” effect.
4.      Use Sorme brow filler brush #958 to define and “clean up” the lines of the star…
