Thinking pink, but can’t commit? Request’s for “Chocolate Mauve” have been hitting my inbox faster than a hot knife through butter.
This edgy but low maintenance look, adds a bit of pop to your ‘do. Bordering on a rich chocolate, the hint of pink adds a coolness to your normally warm brunette.
Ask for it in balayage form, as it grows out super soft. Although this type of color will fade out quicker than your normal balayage, a gloss every 6-8 weeks will keep the pink on point. Like the fading? Then, enjoy it as it reveals a cool caramel and you get a double look for your dollar.
A good blow dryer makes all of the difference. I love Parlux… I am currently using the Lightweight Parlux. I also love the brands: Babyliss Pro and T3. My previous Babyliss lasted me for years.
Any of these will cut down on your blow-drying time. For a salon quality look, use the cold shot on the blow dryer, after you are done completely drying the hair. This will assure lots of shine, as the cold air closes the cuticle, making the surface super shiny and eliminating any frizz.
These professional dryers have a great motor in them being that stylists can use them continuously all day long, so it will last forever if you are just using it at home. Totally worth investing in a good one!
Be sure to get good clips if you are going to section your hair, it will make your life much easier. If you are looking for a good round brush to give your hair a bit of volume, Creative Ceramics are great, I especially love their triangular ones! Ibiza brushes are my go to for smoothing the hair. Ask me if you have any questions on picking the best blow dryer or brush for you!
Awhile back, I had a blast working with Kelly from Mimosas Manhattan for a photo shoot. I colored her hair adding some blonde highlights for extra pop around her face and then we came up with this amazing braid, that has a half up – half down feel to it. It gave the illusion of wearing the hair down, adding softness with an edge. Girl can take some fierce photos.. Check out more of her blog and this photo shoot here.
