Corrective Color from Start to Finish

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.
