Preparing My Model For Her Next Photo-Shoot!

Getting a model prepared for a photo-shoot is a lot of fun and joint cooperation. Some models who are serious about there portfolio. And they will go to the ends of the earth to prepare for a schedule job.  And believe me it is a job, hair makeup, wardrobe, skin etc.  I go through a system for all my models. I run a add on model mayhem for all new models looking for photographs. I provide there wardrobe, a MAC Makeup class. Which we will get all needed cosmetics for the photo-shoot. that will match there outfit. I normally like to get dresses for my models. And I also like to use props for them, instead of doing the same old portrait shooting.  I have been a hairdresser/makeup artist for 30 years and started doing photography 7 years ago.

 

My models photo-shoot is at the end of the month and it was every important to get the right makeup formula’s. We used MAC Makeup foundation Studio Face and Body Foundation., Studio Fix Smooth Wear Concealer, for the face.  Mac Makeup Brow set for the eyebrows, 3D Black Lash Mascara, Studio Fix Sculpt and Shape Contour Palette in Dark to Medium Tones.  The contour palette was also used for the eye shadows and highlighting on the brow bone.  Always remember to learn how to manipulate your makeup kit for all uses.  For the lips we used Retro Matte Lipstick and also as a pencil for the lips. All MAC products were used for this makeup up session. And I would highly recommend using this line for photography, the product will not move or dissipate in color tones.  But most of all you really have to clean the face and also in photography you have to use a primer for the outdoors. Especially in this Central Florida weather, or the makeup will melt off.

I like to buy my wardrobe from the following online clothing stores.

All these company’s provide lovely outfits for all times of the year.  All wardrobe is provide for free to all the models including hats, accessory’s, shoes.  I feel it is very important to script your photo-shoots and have the proper makeup that fits your model. By doing all of these before a photo-shoot then you will have a winning session. I feel through experience. Prepare, Prepare, Prepare.  Photo’s will becoming soon for her next photo-shoot at the end of the month.

Go To A Professional Hairdresser!

A new customer contacted me from my website josephkellner.com

She asked me could she make an appointment and she did. Her hair color was 70% grey and on a level 5-6 on the warm side.  The rest of her hair from mid-shaft to ends was a dirty blonde and very, very dry. Her hair was naturally wavy and with medium thickness. She asked me to cancel out the red base she got from using a product recommended for her hair to lift and tone to a level 6 cool. I believe that when a person goes into a store such as Sally’s you don’t get a professional answer. For one thing the clerks are paid horribly and usually they are a beauty school drop out. So having said that I told her I could do the job. for her and this would be a corrective hair color service. $$$$ Here we go.

Simply starting with just a simple foil highlight to help reduce the red copper on her roots, and also touching the past foil highlight she had done. I used also a low light indiscriminately all over which was a level 7 neutral. Finishing the foil light I proceeded to place a level 7-8 blue-green on the roots and the new growth of the hair. Mind you she was a home hair-color job, where she got the color and advice from a sally’s employee. I processed the hair for 35 minutes.

We proceeded to cut the hair a good amount, and then we did our blow out. I recommended the Shea Moisture Shampoo to her for her hair type and condition.

DRY, DAMAGED OR TRANSITIONING HAIR
Our Sulfate-Free shampoo helps to give moisture to dry damaged or over-processed hair. Perfect for transitioning chemically treated hair to natural. So the customer was happy and make sure if you go to Sally’s don’t ask a clerk about hair color.  Go to a professional Hairdresser!

haircolorinorlando.comI got a phone call this week from someone interested if she could make an appointment with me for corrective hair coloring.  The customer said she has been everywhere and no one can get her hair color right. She complained about the stylist would not rinse out all of the hair color, it turned red, and to my surprise she paid for it. Strange. Can you fix it she asked me. I said I cannot see what your hair is like over the phone, but please if you like make an appointment. OK she says I will call back. STRANGE.

  1. Hair color is not permanent it is artificial, tone lasts 4-6 weeks and then it fades.
  2.  Don’t pay for a hair color service if you are not happy.
  3.  Always make sure you and your stylist/Colorist are on the same page, Consultation!
  4. Well water will fade out artificial hair coloring faster than when you have regular running water.
  5. Never use protein on Blonde hair, it will dry it out!
  6. Coconut oil and Almond oil is the best treatment for degraded hair.
  7.  When you change your hair color, change your makeup.
  8.  Change your hair color every season, and if you have blonde hair change the tones of it as well.
  9.  Experiment, Experiment with hair colors. Don’t look like your next door neighbor or soccer MOM.

  11.  With pale skin always keep lighter shade of color around the face.
  12. Toning shampoo’s don’t work the product goes down the drain.
  13. Conditioners with slight hair color stains work, be careful if you have blonde hair.

The Right Blonde For You

JosephKellner.comBefore choosing a new hair color, consider your skin tone and eye color. You may find that warmer colors suit you better and lift your overall appearance. For example, if your hair has already been bleached or colored a very light blond hue and your darker roots are starting to show, change your color to a warmer tone of blond with deep honey highlights. And forget the bleach… your hair needs time to recuperate. A new hair color can create an extraordinary impact when combined with a fresh new hair style.Also when you are changing your hair color also make sure you change your makeup colors also. Many clients will keep the same makeup colors and they will see that they are not very complementing to there new hair color. And always change you hair color as the seasons change along with your makeup.  Make sure you have your hairdresser tell you the changes you need in your makeup also.

Hair Stylist in Orlando loves Dry Shampoo By VS!

 

10672193_101522014 Joseph Kellner Photo-shoots.64429896750_5247921730790760419_ngoood Getting hair ready for a photo-shoot is very important. Such as Hair, Hair Color, Makeup and Setting of the Hair Design. If you have dry, fine hair and has no body in it. I would like to recommend Victoria’s Secret Dry Shampoo for you hair. This product will give fine, limp hair a extraordinary amount of volume. For photo shoots it is a live saver. I also like to curl the hair and break up the set and spray just a little on the root are and the beachy wave look is easily achieved.  We all know as editorial stylists that by a 5-6 hour shoot the hair is pretty lifeless. But this product will give you a extended time to work during the shoot. Love it!!!

I’ve purchased this multiple times now, it’s amazing! It helps matte the hair and bring volume to oily, second day hair! It’s especially useful if you accidentally used a little too much oily product in your hair. It has a light fresh smell of the “Body by Victoria” fragrance. If your nozzle gets clogged, try running it under hot water. If it breaks after you just bought it (its happened to me) just return it to your VS store (with or without the receipt!) and exchange it for a new one! It’s in their return policy.

Why brush cleaner is important to Makeup Artists!

Orlandomakeup.comAs a professional hair dresser and makeup artist you tools are very important. And they are not cheap. So when you are using top of the line makeup brush’s it is important to use the brush cleaner the manufacturer recommends and also makes. If they make the brush’s, I will use the cleaner made for the brush’s. Nearly all of my makeup brush’s are from MAC, and they are very expensive and they have also lasted me along time. This one product will clean, disinfect and condition the brush fibers so that brushes will last longer. It is convenient to use and is specifically designed to extend the life of high quality brushes. Brush cleanser leaves your brushes smelling fresh and clean, and helps shorten their drying time. Take my recommendation USE IT!!!!

Here are some great recommendations for this product!

“If you own MAC brushes or really just any brushes you must get this brush cleanser. I use it once a week and mix a little with some warm water in a glass and let my brushes soak for about 5 minutes and then rinse them off and lay flat to dry. It keeps my brushes in great shape and looking brand new!

“I used to wash my brushes with baby shampoo or natural hand soap. I’m so glad I gave this brush cleanser a shot. This brush cleanser is so light and lathers really well. It says it helps shorten drying time, and I have experienced it!”

“My routine is rinsing my brush under warm water, squeeze a few drops of this pink cleanser and start sweeping my brush. I couldn’t believe how soapy it got. It cleanse my brushes really well and it dries very quickly. My brushes seems to last longer, so soft and ready for application.”
“I was washing my brushes with some baby shampoo, but that was not cutting it. Left too much residue and just did not rinse my MAC ,  Sigma, Be, and sheer cover brushes clean. So once my local MAC restocked this (after being out of stock), I made the splurge. It is definitely worth it. It does clean the brushes to nearly new, and disinfects them. I only use my brushes on myself, but I am acne prone, so it is good to know that my brushes are washed clean. Two ways I use this: deep clean (once weekly) and spot cleaning (after each use).  To deep clean I dampen my brushes, always tilting so the brush head is facing down (never letting water seep into the ferrule). Then I take a small amount of cleaner and swirl my brush into it and work up a lather. Lastly, I rinse the brush clean and gently squeeze out the excess water. Spot cleaning: dampen a small portion (a couple drops will do) of a paper towel or Kleenex, and swirl the recently used (not dampened) brush gently into the towel.  Good buy, will be repurchasing for life.”
I recommend this product in my salon for all our makeup services.  Joseph Kellner top hair color salon in Orlando.

Men can look Younger with Hair Color!

Hey Guys! Our gray hair can make you look distinguished or it can make you look old and tired. Sometimes it lends credibility and other time it lands you a date at the retirement home for a 4 p.m.dinner.  I know guys who gray prematurely and find themselves mostly gray in their mid 30′s, and I also know guys in their late 40′s that have not shown any signs of graying–not fair, but true. Whatever you decide to do about it, you should feel comfortable with the decision.

Men and hair coloring have been taboo subjects. For some the conversation is just as “off the table” as the “don’t ask, don’t tell” gay policy for the military. But regardless of its status, men’s home hair coloring business is booming. According to industry experts, it grew by over 10% during 2012.

What is the right color for you!

Any of us could color our hair pink, green or black (if we wanted to) but depending on our hair color, the process varies from a simple one-step hair color to a more complicated double coloring process. This said, here are the colors that are easiest to achieve with one-step colors. Generally, for those with black hair, it’s easier to achieve shades of red and dark brown. For those with brown hair, coloring to achieve other shades of brown, blond, caramel, and red tends to be more straightforward.

Finally, men with blond hair can easily get their hair lightened or altered to browns and reds.Your choice of color should also be based on the analysis of your skin tone.
There’s no general rule in determining which hair color will suit your skin tone best.

 However, men with darker complexions look better with “cooler tones.” The most flattering coloring options for men with darker skin tones are golden highlights, golden with red highlights, golden brown, honey brown, chestnut, copper, auburn, mahogany, and warm tones of gray and white. On the other hand, guys with pale skin should opt for warmer colors. For more flattering results, choose colors such as plum, burgundy highlights, ash, platinum blond, brown, dark brown, black, slate, salt and pepper, and white.

Here are some tips about home hair color and read them wisely!

Your “natural” color is lighter than you think. Always go for a color that’s a shade lighter than what you think you need. The longer the stuff stays on your head the darker it becomes. So pay attention to time. Use a mirror and make sure you get the back of your head as well. Just because you can’t see back there, doesn’t mean the rest of the world cannot either. The dye will stain your skin, meaning anywhere it touches including your forehead, ears, hands. It also stains wood cabinets and even tile (don’t ask how I know.) The older you get the lighter your hair should be. If you are thinking of dying your hair, don’t wait until your head is completely gray or the change will be very drastic. “Whoa, what happened to you?” is not what you’re going for. Once you get started, you’ll need to do it every few weeks. It’s a commitment. Spend a few dollars and have a professional do it. You won’t regret it.

Good Luck!
