How long did the transformation take?
The transformation took 4 hours.
What is it about this new style that’s exciting for you?
This was a complete makeover. My client hadn’t had any thing happen in her hair for months and it had just grown out into nothing. It was the perfect opportunity to take a blank canvas and make it a statement, especially with the colour.
What sort of inspiration did you have in mind while you were doing this client’s hair?
I wanted to play with a kaleidoscope of color within the boundaries of natural hair. So I created highlights that had green, blue and turquoise all in the one highlight to create an ombre effect. The colour was a subtle statement of attitude that you would only capture glimpses of, in the haircut. It’s about creating sophisticated colour that’s also creative: you could wear to the office without it being considered too “far out there.
What did the Transformation involve?
The transformation was created with ombre style foil highlights that are designed to show glimpses of bright green, blue and turquoise scattered throughout the hair.
