The concept of Color: From Start to Finish
I was really excited to have found this model! I had been searching for some time to find the right one for this shoot. What’s interesting is how different a model can appear, from real life to in front of the camera. She had a few posting of previous work she’d done and I really liked her theatrical style.
I love having models with a strong jawline, very captivating eyes, and can be just fun to work with. She had the right look and figure I was searching for. And to top if off, she was very, very welcoming to my creative ideas for her hair.
Echo had come to my salon a few weeks before the shoot. With that, I had the opportunity to talk about the cut and color that I had envisioned. When I first met her, she had faded pink hair, a quarter inch of regrowth, and the growing out phase of a bob. Perfect hair to work with!
First step: I cut Echo’s hair into an asymmetrical bob/A-line. Within the inside of her bob, we shaved both sides. Her hair is fine texture, but it is so thick that you wouldn’t be able to see it.
Second step: Now having her hair cut, I could take a look at how it lays, her natural hair fall, and how I wanted the color to be displayed. With Echo’s color, I left her growout alone, touching her roots up (about an inch to an inch and a half) with Pravana Violet, using this as lowlighting as well, and incorporating other lowlights of Pravana Blue, and Pastel Pink. I did the roots first, then rinsed her hair. The violet actually had toned her hair from a pale yellow to a whitish tone. Then I did the lowlighting throughout her hair.
The effect turned out amazing and exactly what I wanted. What’s cool is that when Echo moves her part from left to right, her hair color shows a different affect. It’s also a style and color that is really in now and will last her.
