Recently I was visited by an influential blogger and style maven, Jodi Blk. Jodi was in need of a little TLC for her hair and asked me to help. I was happy to oblige. If you haven't visited her blog you should. Jodi oozes style and has her finger on the pulse of the latest and greatest not only in the realm of fashion, but for beauty as well. Jodi is a great example of the type of clients that gravitate towards my particular brand of hairdressing. This is what I did:
When I looked at Jodi's hair, I immediately felt that her ombre could use fine-tuning. Her color wasn't completely off but it needed adjustments to bring it back to life. First, I blended her natural dark brown root color with the lighter ombre highlights to soften the harsh line. I did this free hand to control exactly how far down her ombre begins.
Next, I put a glaze all over the lighter parts of her hair. The reason I did this is because lighter hair struggles to shine so by glazing and sealing the hair, I can create more shine and manageability. I did this by using a signature colour enriched with macadamia oil.
The final and most important thing we did was a very minimal (but much needed) trim. When hair ends split, it becomes impossible for them to grow or mend themselves. By keeping the hair trimmed frequently and by taking very little off, we maintain the length and make the hair more manageable and healthy.
