I hand knitted this headband with extensions for this shoot to create something new. It was extremely hard, but if you have patience and can knit go for it! As you all know I like to do a few crazy things every once in a while just to keep you all entertained. Let me know what you think! I used an embossing iron to enhance her texture for plenty of body. Creating almost a beehive style in the back.
When you’re running late and have no time to wash your hair. Still having to look fabulous though right? Make a messy twist bun! Spray Dry Matrix shampoo into the greasy parts of your hair. Start twisting on the front side of your face. Continue the twist all the way to the back of your head (to the same side you started twisting). Bun the rest into a messy twist, keeping your hair out of your face and concealing hair you were unable to wash. Try adding braids if you are a capable braider for a more sleek finish. However messier hair hides dirtier hair!
What do you do when your client wants a change…and not a small change. A LIFE CHANGING CHANGE? You say yes of course (as long as her hair is healthy enough and you both have the time to achieve her desired look). I love using my artistic side so this challenge was one of my favorites. I hope you enjoy it as well.
This was my client when she first walked in….I had alot of work on my hands to turn her into the “Phoenix”. I had to hand pick out her low lights, and her new growth and reverse ombre her hair to get it to look like this. I used different formulas of Matrix Light Master and VLight to achieve the healthy blondes you see below.
You can see reverse ombre means the lightest part of the hair is at the new growth of the hair while it gradually gets darker to a medium blonde at her ends. Her Occipital region I kept her natural level 6 for the final coloring stage as seen below.
Using the new Matrix Color Graphics Yellow, Orange and Magenta. I was able to Ombre everything above the Occipital from a yellow to a gradual Orange. I used the Magenta on the Occipital region for the contrast. Since Matrix Color Graphics is a Semi Permanent color you can see how shiny and healthy her hair is, even after all the chemical changes we did on her hair. I LOVE MY MATRIX. Stay tuned for more Mere’s Hair 🙂
