Blonde to Red Complete Makeover Video.


Planning a complete makeover? Something to revolutionize a look that's become monotonous over time? Here's a perfect idea from Anja Herigg of Hair & Mehr. First, decide what you want and discuss its feasibility with the stylist. After you reach an agreement, begin with a steady wash. Conditioning is often omitted since conditioners coat the hair preventing the color taking due to the cationic nature of quaternium conditioning agents. Drape a towel around and leave a minute or two, until semi-dry.

The stylist will wrap an apron to avoid tufts causing irritation. She clipped and brushed the gathered hair in sections with a wide toothed brush. Three separate clips to the front and sides. Using the razor cutting technique and a narrow comb, she cut the back to the requisite length, the excess left on the neck is also shaved. She used the razor technique to soften the boundary between the skin and hair by leaving the ends at different lengths. Shortened bangs provide the finished look.

Colors and Tones.

Colors mixed in appropriate proportions give the desired tones. In this case she uses several different colors and applies dye with care, starting at the back right to the roots to increase the styles shelf life. While applying color to the edges, paper prevents stains around the face to avoid stains and then more prevents color mixing. Once the coloring is complete, washing removes excess color, conditioning at this stage is appropriate. Light makeup applied to eyes and lips enhances the new style. A large round brush and blow dryer completes the process.

Comparing before and after pictures shows a huge contrast. Now coming to the question asked in the beginning, the answer is obvious. This will definitely redefine your personality.
