Sometimes a whisper speaks louder than a shout!

I was so excited to prepare my dear friend’s hair as she headed to the Cannes Film Festival! Karyna and her husband have just produced another film, and this busy beauty needed to become ‘Red Carpet Ready’. And, she had not visited me or any other colorist — for more than sixteen months! I highlighted her hair last in January, 2021!

I chose to embrace her natural brunette base shade, and to use her lightened hair lengths to impose that ‘fade’ fashion dictates right now.

So - technique was important here. No foils were placed parallel to one another.. some were woven. Others were sliced. Some selected strands ‘melted’ away from the scalp. —.I used Wella Bondex lightener. And I glazed the entire head with Wella Shinefinity. 09/02 for fifteen minutes.

The message here: There are many many different types of blonde. I Love light hair.. but every blonde need not be BRIGHT. In order to shine! PS. Makeup here by David Maderich. I created this look in New York City for Kieran McKenna Salon.
