BEHIND THE SCENES: SEASIDE ALLURE

 


I love models.

I remember the first time I worked with a big-deal-for-real hot hot model…

She snuggled up close to me and asked me to remove her necklace.  I zoomed into her without a beat and saw up close the otherworldly beauty that she was. Perfect skin over perfect bone structure… an ethereal glow from within.

I sort of just–for lack of better word–exclaimed “You’re so @!?$ing beautiful!”

And she looked at me as if I just told her she had two arms. Sort of a ‘yeah it’s my job, dude.’

That’s why it was so fun shooting AGEbeautiful’s brand new Seaside Allure collection, because these are shades that make everyone feel like a model.

On set I’m typically very limited as to how much I can permanently change a model’s hair color.  It was a fun challenge to find a way to incorporate a pop of this brilliant Seaside Allure collection, without pushing it too far out of her comfort zone.

Best part about this technique is you can do it all by yourself… we chose to do the bottom nape of her head, but I look forward to seeing all the creative ways you are experiencing the #PleasureOfFakingIt!

HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED
Pre-Lighten Formula:

Formula 2:

HERE’S WHAT YOU’RE GOING TO DO
1.Section away the upper nape part of your hair (right above the bone that goes ear-to-ear).
2.In small sections, starting at the root area, apply the Pre-Lighten Formula to all the hair that is about an inch away from the roots. Once that reaches a yellow stage, apply to the root area. (If you need more tips on how to pre-lighten hair, read my How To Properly Pre-Lighten Hair post!)
3.Once the root area lightens to yellow, rinse, shampoo and condition hair.
4.Dry the hair and apply Formula 2 to the pre-lightened area, from roots to ends.
5.Process for 15 minutes.
6.Rinse, shampoo and condition.


I love the versatility of these shades, they really do look beautiful on everyone.  They are also intermixable with AGEbeautiful’s extensive palette of colors.  I’ve been having fun adding splashes of violet and red.

I know you’re going to have a blast working with them, so be sure to share all of your remarkable results with us using the hashtags #AGEbeautiful and #PleasureOfFakingIt.
