Pots, Pots, Pots!

 

I am sure we all have problems with eye liners. There are pencils, liquid liners, powders, and of course my favorite Pots. I was doing hair and makeup on a contestant for the Miss Florida pageant and I decided to use a variation of liners. I went ahead and applied a MAC primer to the eye lids, which is a MUST for me and MAC makes the best primers in my view. Shadows were applied and my first choice was the Maybelline brown pot, and with a small MAC brush it did the trick. Not too runny and the color was slightly matte. I went ahead and added some orange rouge to my liner and then that did the trick. The brown liner was just a little to matte to me. But being a hair colorist I always mix and customize my hair color formulas, for my clients. So when ever I purchase any product in the makeup field I never use it totally by itself.

The product itself had a very good texture to work with. Now I am always a individual and never follow one manufacturer for hair-color or makeup and even for my hair cutting shears. Shop around and find out what is best for you. Professionals in the makeup and beauty industry will be devoted to one brand. Not so, no manufacturer can do it all, in liners, shadows, brow powder, lips, gloss etc. Find out what works best for you and mix and match your formulas. Customize! THAT is the proper word. I love to mix my pots with rouges. My lip colors are not one color of lipstick they are all self formulated. And that is why I am a professional.

The Maybelline Pot I used was a brown, and it lasted all day on the client. The product has a very thick mixture to it, so make sure you do a little stirring before the application and us the smallest brush that you are comfortable using for the liners. The Pots also has a slight amount of shimmer to them which is a added benefit, I had using a matte, flat color. The purchase price was also agreeable for me it was only $7.00 for the Pot and there was a ample amount for me to use. And as a haircolorist and makeup artist I can go through product like water, so for the consumer you receive alot for the price you pay!!! Try ladies it worked for me!!!

Good luck. And always remember Less is Best!

Hair Colors for a Younger Look

When we say hair color, it does not only mean hiding the grays. There are many color palates that can transform your look, back to the good old ‘looking-pretty’ days! Yes, before we begin we would like to share some tips that can be useful. Opt for a good haircut that will make you look younger. Trust me with a bad cut, even the best of hair colors will not help, so make sure you get that right. Cover your grays, these hair color ideas for gray hair can help you. Even if the hair is thinning, graying, keep them nourished and healthy. Once you get this on track, you can crown them with some cool shades of hair color.

Earths and Browns: Most of us think natural is the best, and hair colors in brown shades give just enough warmth, to keep you looking younger. In case of browns choose something that is not extremely contrasting to your natural hair color and skin tone. Two shades lighter than your original hair color will give you a decent warm look. Opt for smooth chocolate shades, honey brown, golden brown and light brown to ash brown shades. The pigmentation on the skin tends to fade away as we age, so brightening up the pale look is important. These shades will give you just the right amount of glow.

Subtle Reds: Yes, you still can play with some hot red shades of hair color. Though some care needs to be taken when choosing them. Bright funky reds are a big no! Do not even try highlighting a chunk of hair or few strands in dark and funky red. Use subtle tones and warm tones close to brown and not contrasting to the hair color. Auburn shades and shades in reddish brown can give you a chic look. With a stylish hair style, reds can do well to create a younger look.

Golden Blondes: If you have lighter colored hair, blonde shades can be your hair color for a younger look. Here again make sure you do not create contrasts. While choosing the shades, do not color in pale blondes and very light tones. Keep two shades darker or lighter from the original hair color. Shades like honey blonde and golden blonde, and dark natural blondes can go well for highlights giving you a sun kissed appearance. For low lights (darker shade than your natural hair color) you can try beige natural blonde or dark natural blonde. Stay away from ash blondes and platinum blondes. Try to get low lights when you have light blonde hair, darker shades will create depth in the overall look. These colors will add the glow to your face and instantly brighten up a dull and old look.

Why Is Corrective Hair Color So Complicated?

This is a good question. Due to the prior service given to the client, she is now in your hands. If the hair is damaged, I do not suggest proceeding with a chemical service. Porosity is a key factor on how well the damaged hair can be lightened and how long the tone will stay in the hair. Permanent hair color is permanent but the tone is not. The virtue in corrective hair color is patience. The customer must understand that there will be follow-up appointments in securing the final goal of the hair color. Hair color (Fadage) will also be a problem for the client. This is due to porosity of the hair. The health of the hair must be given a total commitment by the client. Home hair care is a must. Establishing realistic goals between the client and colorist is very important. Remember, the colorist who is fixing the prior chemical service is not the one who damaged it. Work with your colorist. I recently had a customer visit and all her hair was burned off! She asked what she could do. I suggested cutting off the remaining hair in a nice textured style. She wanted to keep what was left and believe me, it was no longer than 2’ inches. I suggested a style for the shape of her face and color that would match her skin tone and eye color. But she wanted it left long and it really didn’t suit her. Sometimes you just have to walk away as a professional….

Three Ways To Update Your Color!

Three Ways to Update Your Hair Color!

ENRICH YOUR BASE COLOR 

Don’t try to cover up the color you were born with. Enhance it. Work with your colorist to figure out what hues are hidden below your surface. The idea is to find shades in your hair color’s family and bring out the warm, rich tones by adding more of that color. For example, if you have dark brown hair, chances are you also have some auburn/red in the mix. Bring those tones out by adding lowlights all over but always remember the under-tones of the customers hair. If you are going to warm up the base color after your highlights have been completed use a Green based tint and 20 or 30 volume to control the warmth. Never leave your formula on longer than 5 minutes after your application. You will acheive beautiful and natural base colors with this method.  ALWAYS USE A GREEN BASE COLOR!

Look to The Stars For Shades

Check out celebrities wearing the  hair color you covet, and observe how they switch their shades for the season, NEVER BE A COPY-CAT! Stay within one or two shades (darker or lighter) of your current or natural hue. And always remember you are dealing with artifical hair color the color will hold true for 2-3 weeks and then the fadage process will begin to appear. I recommend La Rose shampoo for cleansing the hair and preventing unwanted hair color fadage. La Rose Shampoo is a mild sulfate free shampoo, with coconut oil that gently cleanses the hair.  Essential nutrients restore the natural beauty of your hair and balances out deficiencies.

Now Customize It!

Now that you’ve narrowed down the shade you like, bring the photo along on your consultation so you and your stylist can develop a personalized look.  It’s also smart to ask questions. Talk about the colors in your wardrobe — are you more browns, grays or blacks? Pastels or bold colors? This will help inform how much of what color is placed where. Always remember to use the proper hair care for you hair color. In my salon we recommend Kalae Rose Hair Care. Weekly treatments are necessary for color treated hair, Kalea Rose Passion is the best you can use on the hair for treatments. Passion Conditioner is formulated with proteins and amino acids that mimic the “natural moisturizing factor” of healthy skin and hair. This product can be used as a daily conditioner and aslo as a weekly at home treatment. Follow up with Sleek Cream for a smooth luxurious finish. Sleek Cream leaves hair shiny and soft without heavy oils and build up.
