Makeover: Vancouver project manager’s dry, brassy hair gets a much-needed boost

Joanna Li, 34, is a project manager and was looking for a colour refresh as her hair was looking brassy and feeling dry.

Li has medium textured hair which was previously highlighted blond. She hadn’t coloured it in several months, and felt like her ends were too bright and brassy compared to her natural colour. She wanted to brighten her hair to a natural looking overall colour that would be easy to maintain.

I opted for foiliage colour placement in her hair, which is a blend of fine weave foils around the face and throughout the hair, with hand painted ribbons throughout the rest of the hair. I used a colour controlling high lift formula to lighten her hair. Once it reached my desired colour, I applied an ammonia-free, demi-permanent colour refinement in a dark caramel tone.

I shampooed her hair using KMS Moist Repair Shampoo and Conditioner to replenish and repair dry, damaged ends. I sectioned her hair and began cutting it in a directional forward one-length shape. I incorporated internal layering to enhance the natural texture for added body and movement.

Before styling, I sprayed KMS Add Volume Volumizing Spray to add volume and width for long lasting style support. I blow dried her hair with a medium round brush. I touched up her mid-lengths with a curling wand to create body and fullness. I finished her look with KMS Hair Stay Working Hairspray for a touchable finish.

Makeup:

I refreshed Li’s makeup by using concealer and a light dusting of powder to even out her complexion. I contoured her face with a light dusting of bronzer, then added a hint of coral-pink blush to create a healthy blushing glow. I dressed her eyes with a matte nude cream eyeshadow, curled her lashes, then coated them with black mascara. On her lips, I opted for a bright fuchsia lipstick.
