Makeover Monday: Autumn Color & Cut

September 24, 2013

This makeover is totally dedicated to this Autumn season.  With my client we normally keep some blonder pieces or some sort of ombre with a medium base… but this time she was ready to go dark. I didn’t want to just do some dark brown, so in my formula I added some auburn into it and gave this pretty color. So in love with her new hair! I also should’ve taken a better before after, in the before picture it’s her back and shows grown out roots and some of the brassy highlights. She also has super long hair that she was hesitant in cutting. It’s that time of the year so we changed her color, cut off a good amount and of course added bangs! 

The Cut: took about 5 inches off on the length, added plenty of layers for volume and bangs 

The Color: Rich auburn brown. Perfect for autumn!

The Style: I normally like to do a quick and beautiful style with a curling iron, this time I felt the need to round brush her hair for that natural fullness.

The Products: I sprayed Seven Products Boost all over focusing mainly on the top roots.

What To Wear With Your Hair: Radiant Cosmetics & Hot Tools Curling Iron

September 19, 2013

Meet an amazing woman & super talented hairstylist Dianna, or on Instagram as @lady_dianna 

For her this series of What To Wear With Your Hair she shares some of her favorite items.

For your hair: 3/4″ Hot Tools Curling Iron, I love hot tools. I use their curling iron for all my styling. It gets so hot and the curls really stay 

For your makeup: Radiant Cosmetics Moscow Red Lipstick, it’s a matte finish and the color stays true the whole time. I’m seriously going to buy this lipstick, not just because it looks amazing on D, but Radiant Cosmetics is not only a makeup brand but they help raise awareness for human trafficking by raising funds through their cosmetics. How awesome is this cosmetic brand?! Love that!

 Why Dianna loves these products: “I love my Hot Tools 3/4″  iron for tight sassy springy curls!! Radiant Cosmetic is an amazing company that donates to so many anti trafficking organizations to help rescue and empowers women all over the world. I wear their makeup proudly!” 

You should check out these products & try them!

What To Wear With Your Hair: Paul Mitchell Dry Wash & Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick Fiery

September 1, 2013

Paul Mitchell Dry Wash & Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Fiery, are my two newest products I am loving and would love to share with you!

For your hair: Paul Mitchell Dry Wash is a dry shampoo, and I’ve tried several dry shampoos because I seriously just love them. Great way to add volume, texture, protect your hair color by not washing it so much and absorbs oil! If you have an oily scalp please try this instead of washing your hair on a daily. It’s a great alternative. What I love about this dry shampoo is it has a nice refreshing scent and gives medium texture, not too sticky. Make sure to section your hair and spray to roots then comb out.

For your Makeup: OMG this amazing lipgloss goes on liquidy and dries matte. It’s full coverage and lasts for up to 6 hours. I would still recommend wearing some chapstick under because it maybe a little drying. If you are looking for a bright red, FIERY is the color for you! 

The Style: I used hot tools 1″ curling iron and just grabbed random pieces, curled away from the face, then loosened up the curls with my fingers
