Sierra Furtado’s Hair Color

This color correction is a perfect example of how hair color can really enhance someones beauty.  Evalina had fragile broken blonde hair which she confessed was making her look tired and washed out.  The right color can make such a difference, her skin is so much more vibrant, and her eyes pop like never before.  I’ve always believed that when your hair looks healthy, you look healthy.  Something I’ll go into further detail in a later article, but feel it should be adressed now is that Moroccan Oil was killing Evalina’s hair.  Silicones in the oil suffocate the hair leaving it brittle and weak, and when her colorist would put bleach on her fragile hair, it was breaking off, as you can see in the before photos.  If you are using Moroccan Oil today, stop immediately, and don’t take this warning lightly.

beautiful blonde hair

I don’t have any before pictures on this one, but Laura was living in the south when she came to me.  Her hair was bleach white and heavily damaged.  Now it’s got depth and strength, and she still gets to keep the blonde without being over processed.

kat goes beachy

It’s in right now, but it’s never been out.  The beachy look is what every little kid has after the summer has bleached out their hair.  Especially if you live near the coast, this hair color is always appropriate.

kat beforesomeone had already gone for the beachy look with kat, but I felt like the placement was a little off.  with a few corrections, we got her hair to flow a little nicer and make more sense.

Erynne gets color for first time

If you’re nervous about getting color for the first time… Don’t be… It doesn’t have to be a drastic change.  This is a very subtle and beautiful version of what is being called the ombré.  I hate to put this hair-color in the same category because it’s so much classier. Until a new phrase is coined for this, it will have to do.  With soft highlights framing the face and the ends, this color gives the appearance of being out in the sun for a summer.  You can see how much nicer her skin looks in the before and afters.  The lightness of the hair softens the red tones in her skin by reducing the contrast.

strawberry blonde

From a washed-out rooty look to a vibrant strawberry blonde with sun-kissed ends.  Janetta was the perfect candidate for going red-  Pale skin, freckles and light eyes are the ideal trifecta for a redhead.  You can see in the before and after photos how her eyes pop, along with the freckles.  I find freckles to be gorgeous, however some women don’t like their freckles so this is something they have to be informed of when going red.  Notice how the roots still have depth – this is very important in creating natural looking hair color.
