hair thursday makeover 35
Here it is, part 2 from last week! Better late than never, right?
Dark brown with a bleached white stripe
Doesn’t know what to do with the front part of her hair – wears it pulled back 75% of the time
Oily at the roots, dry ends
Fine hair, thin at the front. Thick, minimal wave
Spends anywhere between 5 and 30 minutes on hair
Uses round brush with a blow dryer
Ceramic straightener occasionally
I can’t really get a clear idea of what Natalie’s hair looks like in these photos. To me, it looks reddish (which I really like) opposed to a dark brown, and I can’t tell if it’s wet or not. First off, if it isn’t wet in the photo, too much product is being used.
Natalie has a patch of gray hair located on the top of her head, and has been bleaching it to create a light stripe, as you can see in the photo. Although it adds some visual interest, I would prefer to see her with the entire head of hair colored uniformly or let the gray patch grow in au naturale.
To me, her natural gray patch of hair would still create a streaked look, but she wouldn’t have to consistently bleach (read: damage) that part of her hair. Think Stacy London.
BUT. If Natalie isn’t comfortable with flying her gray flag, what about an allover color? Natalie’s hair is currently brown, but I think a dark auburn would look very nice with her coloring. Something like this:
Oh, look! It’s a Nice and Easy advertisement! (I promise, I have no sort of agreement with Clairol. I just really liked this hair color on their website.)
Wouldn’t that color look lovely on Natalie? Now that I think about it, that cut would look great too. Cutting two inches off the bottom and adding long layers in the front would give Natalie’s hair more dimension, but she could still pull it back if needed. I would recommend using a color/heat protectant before drying and using a round brush and dryer to create a smooth, shiny style.
Until tomorrow, my friends.
