Hair Trend Feature - Fall 2012

Style Transition - Cool Color & Style

Are you looking for a new hairstyle? Something versatile but oh-so-stylish? Take a look at this alluring makeover by Helen Botsis of Anasa Hair Studio. She took Brenna’s everyday hairstyle from oh-so-basic to cool-y classic and then push it over the edge with a radically retro appeal.

Breanna’s shoulder length, boring brown strands sported some old blond highlights in front and a lack of style, volume or movement all over. In its place, Helen created a rich copper mahogany hue that is lighter on top and darker underneath for the ultimate in dimension. She cut a very classic, mid length layered bob and added a sultry side-swept bang.

Look 1 
For a classic smooth style, Eufora Formation Whipped Styling Solution is applied at the root before blow-drying using a round brush while pulling up on section of hair to coax lift and volume. After all of the moisture was removed, a flat iron was smoothed through for control; with the ends slightly rolled under, the edges are pieced with a dab of pomade.

Look 2
To glam up for a second look, White Sands Liquid Texture is added to one-inch sections of dry hair before barrel curling with a medium curling iron. After the barrel curls had cooled, each section is gone over with Eufora Illuminate Shine Mist to produce looped pin curls, leaving a very vintage vibe.

Products Used

Eufora Formation Whipped Styling Solution
A unique and versatile styling foam that delivers great hold and control without the harsh chemicals found in most “mousse” type products. Use it on wet or dry hair to give volume, sculpt and achieve curly control. 

Eufora Illuminate Shine Mist
An advanced, multi-use shine enhancement product that provides wear-in treatment benefits. It restores healthful sheen to all hair styles. This weightless, non-greasy formula is especially beneficial for chemically treated, dry and damaged hair.

White Sands Liquid Texture Medium Hold
White Sands Liquid Texture Medium excels when using hot tools due to its thermal guards, color enhancers, and ability to resist moisture. Liquid Texture Medium allows you to put a hot iron on wet product: the more heat applied, the shinier the hair becomes. Searching for the perfect blow dry? Liquid Texture Medium allows the brush to glide through hair without catching, thus achieving a flat iron type effect full of volume and shine with just a blow dryer and round brush in hand.
