Discover how we turned a retro inspired Hair and Make-up Style into a very feminine and scandalous current creation full of contrasts. “Catch me, if you can.” is a glamorous Look to feel, play, love and live!
By the way, this creation has been voted SECOND BEST LOOK at La Biosthetique´s “NATIONAL BEAUTY STYLIST AWARD 2014” in Spain.
Our world is full of contrasts. Chaos and order, balance and unbalance, old and new, big and small, light and dark, harmony and disharmony.
YIN AND YANG IS EVERYWHERE!
This was my inspiration! For cut, coloration, hair styling and make up – and for the look in general.
My intention was taking these differences to extremes. Especially connecting ingenious innocence with sensuous temptation – I find this very intriguing.
As a vintage lover, my look should definitely have this approach, but linked to the here and now.
One of the priorities was creating a long-lasting hairstyle, made for day-to-day. A great look also has to be versatile and easy to handle – even if it´s for a Beauty Award like this. I wanted to have Polina – our model – to be happy once she went home.
When Polina came to my hair salón, her roots were about 1 inch (3 cm) in her natural color light ash brown. Followed by a light golden brown for approx. 1.5 inches (4 cm). The rest, up to the tips of her hair, was coloured in medium ash blonde.
Both hair and the coloration were in pretty bad condition.
As a new hair color tone, I have chosen a extreme light ash blond from La Biosthetique. On one hand the coloration suits perfectly to Polinas new look, on the other hand the brighter colour tone is doing much better in a region where hair is exposed to heavy sunlight – as here in Majorca.
To get this sun-kiss effect I used a very special and complex freestyle highlighting technique.
The results are very natural looking, brighter and darker color layers, just as it happens when the hair is under sun exposure.
Now, the sunlight cannot ruin the bright hair color anymore – on the contrary: it makes the hair even looking more natural and beautiful.
As mentioned before, Polinas hair was heavily affected and stressed. So I used “Action 2 Phases” from La Biosthétique.
A brilliant hair care product for stressed, dry and burnt hair. A real intensive hair shaft treatment power program, helping to hydrate stressed hair and creating a beautiful shine. It combines precious natural substances with important minerals for perfectly groomed hair.
I decided on a bob, relatively short layered, with bangs, discreetly cut above the eyebrows.
A bob allows almost the same freedom as with long hair, while being as practical as wearing short hair. After all, a bob is a wonderful feminine cut, quick ´n easy in styling and hair care.
To accentuate the lengths of the bob providing volume, I used a curling iron. I did not touch the area closed to the roots, nor the bangs – because no volume was wanted there.
But before I applied the “Heat Protector” from La Biosthetique, to protect the hair from the damaging effects of heat styling.
The “Spray Artistique” from La Biosthétique was my choice to get the styling fixed.
Now, Polinas striking face looks much softer and feminine. At the same time the curly hair is making her look extremely erotic.
The sexy curly bob is creating a fantastic contrast to her decent flat bangs. Those bangs don´t just decorate her high forehead, they boost this innocent girly-look literally to the max.
I have chosen a clear and discreet, but at the same time a very precisely applicated make-up. The intention was to get the skin almost looking artificial, like it was made from porcelain.
Maching this look, the eyebrows are in a very pale color tone – and the lower part of the eyelid just got a restrained golden-beige gradient.
The hair style stands for the kittenish and girlish, while the make-up makes her look like a porcelain doll.
However, the sexy pink-pastel low-cut silk dress makes Polina amazingly glamourous. At the same time she really knows how to seduce us with her alluring looks – leaving us breathless by her stunning sensuality.
The glasses are adding something quite surreal to the whole situation, breaking the composition in form and color – but even so it´s wonderfully refreshing to the look.
The general Look seems to play in the late 50s or the early 60s, but with a modern and contemporary twist. Like Polina would belong to the cast of the tv series “Mad Men”, playing the role of an intern – but in 2015.
Hair care products from La Biosthetique are available at our hair salon in Palma de Mallorca or at any other La Biosthétique hair salon next to you.
