Shine Nectar For My Photo-Shoot Model

Over the weekend I had a photo-shoot with a very talented model who came down from Michigan. She had ethnic Hair and I wanted separation and shine to the hair for this photo-shoot. I used Shine Nectar from Jack Winn.  For separation and shine. The product did not weight the hair down at all. Nor did it make it greasy. Very easy to work with. The product had a very light scent to it.  A clean scent. Lovely. Great for styling the hair and for shine.

The makeup for this photo-shoot was MAC Makeup. Location of this photo-shoot was in Orlando, Florida.

Redken Hair Color Change For Fall

This Model was prepared for her Photo-Shoot this week and requested a deeper color all over. I also suggested that it would be a good idea since the hair was dry and brittle from constant overlapping and flat ironing.  When ever you use a curling iron or flat iron. Always prep the hair with a styling lotion and dry all of the hair thoroughly. Section your hair and curl or straighten it and use a dry hair spray on each section to protect it.  Don’t use any products with moisture in it.

A level 4.3 and 6.4 was mixed for the new-growth and also the same formula for the mid shaft and ends of the hair. With varying developer strengths. Shea Moisture Cosmetics was used to wash and condition the hair. And for styling the hair. Excellent product to work with. There was no color gloss’s added to the hair of the completion of the permanent hair color service.  Mac Makeup was used for her Photo-Shoot.  The Photo-Shoot was held on Melbourne Beach Florida.

Smooth Intense Ultimate Straight Perfecting Balm

Kellner
Excellent product for those salon smooth blow outs. And I would recommend it also for home use.  I like to try out store-bought products and this does the job for salon use and this product has the strength to really give you a salon blow-out. Smooth things out with Hair Expert Smooth Intense Creme. Not only does the treatment add sleekness to every strand of your hair but it also protects leaving your mane less prone to heat styling damage. 

I really like the Straight Perfecting Balm. Most balms that help protect against heat are sticky and leave hair feeling like it has a filmy or thick texture but this balm completely absorbs into hair leaving it smooth and weightless. I love that not only does it help protect against heat it also makes hair easier to style and straighten and helps keep it straight for longer. It perfectly pairs with the other products in the Ultimate Straight Line and I would recommend to any one who straightens hair often or needs extra help to get hair straight.  And also the product has a lovely scent to it. Give it a try. Just take a quarter size amount for medium to long hair. Stay away from the scalp and only apply from mid shaft to ends. Comb through the hair with a wide tooth comb.  Gen at least half of the moisture out of the hair then apply a brush to sectioned hair. Use medium heat for blow drying the hair.  Once a section is dry apply a cool blast from your blow dryer to take away any fly away hairs. I like to use thermal roller brush’s to blow dry the hair. For a more formal look I like to use Boar bristle brush’s.  Once the hair if fully dried apply a small amount of the creme to the tips of your finger and brush through the hair. Iron in curls if necessary for the style you are looking for. And you are finished.  The product was used on the model pictured above and MAC Makeup was also used for her photo-shoot.

Superbe Superbe Superbe! Radical Volume Spray!

Joseph Kellner

Another great product to work with is the Volume spray by KIN COSMETICS.  Very simple product to use you can blow dry the hair fully with it starting with damp hair. Or as I like to use it on dry hair and dry setting. This will not leave the hair with a dry feeling to it. As all hairdressers know we can feel if a product is good or bad by only the touch.  The product had a very light scent to it nor was there a smell of alcohol to the spray. Below is a photograph of the model before her finished work.  This is a very simple and useful tool for any client’s bathroom or salon usage. For me it will go in my tool kit for when I am on location for film work or editorial.

Just a simple shampooing of the hair, no conditioner was used.

Hand dried hair. No product used.  Hair was then set to the criteria of the photo-shoot.

 

 

While the hair was placed in rollers makeup was completed.  MAC Makeup was used for this photo-shoot.

When the make was done the hair was sprayed again with the Volumizing spray and let dry for about 5 minutes.

I ran my brush through the hair and WELLAH! Finished product is below. Excellent Product! Photo shoot was done for Georgina Bridals of South Beach.

Mega-lift Mousse Victoria’s Secret Excellent

IMG_2049_copy[1] (4)

If you have fine thin hair and you want volume this product is excellent for you. I don’t usually do a lot of short hair styles but I had a new customer come to me the following week ago and her hair was just flat. So I recommended a lot of graduation to her style and blunt lines.  Then I needed to teach her how to use styling methods.  Such as a voluminous products and thermal brushes.  I recommended the Mega-lift Mouse from VS.  And it did a wonderful job for her and you talk about volume.  There was no stiffness to her hair after styling just pure movement. Lovely product to use in the salon or at home. I have not used it for a Photo-Shoot yet, but I cannot wait for the opportunity.

Bombshell hair is all about body. This lightweight styling mousse creates that larger-than-life volume you love with a touchable, lasting hold.

  • Fragrance notes: Crushed leaves, freesia and water hyacinth
  • 200 g/6.7 fl. oz
  • Domestic

TIPS & TRICKS: For the ultimate Bombshell blowout, start by prepping with Total Volume Shampoo and Conditioner. Then run the Mega-Lift Mousse through damp hair before blow drying. Finish with a pea-sized amount of High-shine Serum on the ends for extra polish.  Wonderful Product to use. And it is reliable! Good price much cheaper than professional salon products.  Out performs salon products also.  Used at the Joseph Kellner Salon

TEASEless Volumizing Powder Shake Works Great For Styling

josephkellner.com180PRO Tease less Volumizing Powder Shake provides build-able, mold-able volume, texture and hold to effortlessly recreate “BIG” styles without the damage of back combing and over styling. This product worked great for me during a recent photo shoot. Lots of hair care products do not hold up to the Florida weather and humidity. But this product did very well.  I used it on the model above and taking the section and applying it to the roots gave me the volume I needed to refresh the hair. Remember to shake the can each and every time you use the product. There was no flaking or any drying out of the hair. I could restyle the hair effortlessly. The was also no build-up feel to the hair and it was easy to brush through. This product I purchased as Sally’s Beauty Supply. My client also told me it was very easy to shampoo out of the hair and easy to comb out after shampooing.  Thumbs up product!  The price was a sell for me also, $9.99 for 136 ml. Great but my friends!
