AGEbeautifully At Any Age

AGEbeautiful is the first anti-aging haircolor but that doesn’t limit it to just one generation of haircolor users…

Enter Regina and Marta, the delightful mother and daughter duo who dazzled us from the minute they walked into the photo shoot.  After we finished pleasantries of our shared Williamsburg, Brooklyn residences (who knew that my favorite Polish take-out was pronounced with a “joop!” for Dzup?) we got down to business!

Mom Regina wants a regal red that works well with her complexion, completely obliterates her stubborn grays and doesn’t give her “hot roots”.   My hands couldn’t reach for the AGEbeautiful RC’s fast enough.

     

REGINA’S REGAL RED FORMULA
1 1/2oz AGEbeautiful 7RC Permanent Hair Color
1/2oz AGEbeautiful 8N Permanent Hair Color

2oz AGEbeautiful 20Volume Developer

REGINA TECHNIQUE
Apply formula at root area only and allow to process for 45 minutes.
Rinse, shampoo and condition.

OPTIONAL GLOSS TECHNIQUE
Gloss faded ends using AGEbeautiful TintShine Bronze for 10 minutes at sink.
This key to Regina’s formula is the addition of the neutral 8N shade, which not only gives complete gray coverage but also ensures balanced, not too-vibrant, aka “hot roots”.

Daughter Marta is a working actress / model and wants to have some fun with her color, while still being seen as a blonde. My fan-favorite Metallic Rose on her tips will give her some excitement while keeping angry phone calls from her agent at bay.

     
MARTA’S METALLIC ROSE FORMULA
2 1/4oz AGEbeautiful Clear Shine Demi Permanent Color
1/4oz AGEbeautiful 5RR Demi Permanent Color
2 1/2oz AGEbeautiful Demi Permanent Developer

MARTA APPLICATION
Begin by isolating away the top half section of the hair (from temple to crown)
Alternate with one inch horizontal and diagonal front sections
Back-comb each section with about half of the hair towards the root-line of the section
Free-hand paint your Metallic Rose Formula in a V-Shaped pattern in each section, from mid lengths to ends
Allow to process for 20 minutes upon completion
Rinse, shampoo and condition.
Regina and Marta are great examples of the self-pampering that we all need to do after the hectic holiday season.
They are also remarkable proof that AGEbeautiful is the go-to hair color for all generations!

Fall into a Brighter Brunette with AGEbeautiful

I love this time of year.
That first turn of summer into fall season when the days are bright and bold.
And the nights are crisp and cold.
That contrast between shadows + light, warm vs cool.
There’s a certain sexy to this time of year that only a brunette understands…

Iris has been a proud brunette for her whole life and wasn’t interested in becoming a blonde but would benefit from some brighter bits.

I always hated that old adage that at a certain point in your life, you have to basically give up and “act your age”.

Iris’ hair was perfect for this look and I was determined to prove not only that but the other anti-aging benefits of taking this next step.

Iris had been covering those pesky grays using my favorite rich sable brunette formula:
1oz AGEbeautiful 6N Permanent + 3/4oz 6G Permanent + 1/4oz 7A Permanent with 2oz 20Volume

Once Iris’ grays were knocked out we got to the real action…

We free hand painted highlights using AGEbeautiful Crème Lightener and 40Volume

I mixed them together to a whipped crème like consistency and started in the back of Iris’ head.  Starting right above the occipital bone we painted V-shaped 2” pieces in a brick-lay pattern.  At the front of her face we began to place pieces on a diagonal-back.

Using your eye place the brighter pieces where the sun would naturally lighten the most.


We processed until the highlights were pale yellow.

Now for my favorite fall gloss formula:
Equal parts of AGEbeautiful TintShine Gold + TintShine Bronze with Demi Developer

We applied all over Iris’ hair for 10 minutes

Not only did Iris have stunning results but was delighted to know that these new highlights would help buffer the blow of the incoming grays in a few weeks.

Iris proves that you can keep your hair youthful at any age and was last seen with a basket full of TintShine at Sally Beauty.
