You know I love a makeover. Ok, maybe you don’t know that. Well now you do! A makeover can be exactly what a lady needs to give her a little boost. A boost in confidence, a boost in her glamour factor or a boost in her sex appeal! If there is a makeover story on TV???? Forget about it. I will be sucked into that cable channel marathon all day!!!
The thing about a makeover is this: it doesn’t have to be drastic to be dramatic. When I was doing makeovers last week for a fab party that Clairol had for their amazing at-home hair colorPerfect10(and for me as the new Color Director), I was inspired by one of our models, Sarah.
In Sarah’s before picture you can see she has a lot going on with her hair color. She had new growth at the roots, which was a darker brown, and her previous color that turned to a brassy, orangey brown in the middle, and her ends were very faded.
Because Sarah had previously colored her hair (as a general rule tint won’t lift tint, so you can’t paint a lighter color over already colored hair) and we were working with at-home hair color (which as a rule you shouldn’t go more than two shades lighter or two shades darker than your current color), our only options were to work with the orangey tones or go darker.
I knew I didn’t want to work with the orangey tones.
I wanted to go darker, yet I had this fear of at-home-hair-color in black shades looking like scary Halloween witch hair! But since I loved, loved, loved the results from using Perfect 10 on the other guests, I thought, “what the heck,” and went for the black.
As you can see by her end result, there is nothing witch-like at all about Sarah’s new color. It looks so fresh and glamorous – bringing to mind old school sirens like Betty Paige or Rosalind Russell. She looks amazing – dramatic not drastic.
What do you think?
