Carol has lots of volume and body and a medium texture. During consultation she mentioned that it had gotten too heavy in the front and wanted more height in the crown.
Elise wanted basically a trim but her biggest concern was that her hair be thinned out quite a bit. After the shampoo, we did the basic cut first, then the long layering and removing bulk was best done on her dry, straightened hair because once her hair was dry it seemed to increase in volume by 3x. After testing several products to see which gave the most results, I found that Sexy Hair product called 'Smooth and Seal' was the best. A straightening shampoo and conditioner that is formulated to help smoothe wavy, absorbent hair and help lock out humidity would work well with continued use.
Today we used a semi-permanent color to add a warm richness and shine. Another benefit is added body as this color actually coats the hair and broadens the diameter slightly. Aimee is a new Mom and her Mom gave her a gift certificate for both the color and a hair cut. We looked at layered haircuts in photo books to find a picture that described best the type of layering and length she was thinking of. Several inches were removed to just below shoulder length and soft texturized layers were added to remove weight at the bottom and give more volume to the top layers, as well as long side swept bangs. Redken Smooth Down Heat Glide and Iron Silk were used.
This is one of those times I wish we'd taken a BEFORE picture because it was quite the transformation! Jenny arrived at the salon with curly hair down to the middle of her back, in a ponytail. She was ready for a change and had seen a photo of Marlene T's hair on this website and asked if her hair would do well in that cut. We decided to go for it. It's such an easy to care for style, she got the volume she wanted using a round brush to blow dry the top and scrunched the rest to bring out her natural texture.
