Welcome to B2MR BACK2MYROOTS! I hope to create a platform that over time will become a place to share thoughts review hair colour and products.
I am pleased to let you know that i have started a professional hairdressing net working group through Linked in.
When I first started in the hair industry the thought of putting hair up being asked to do some ones hair for a graduation or wedding totally freaked me out.
The reason for this was fear! fear of screwing up fear of not knowing what i was doing looking an idiot.
I muddled my way through doing wedding hair but never feeling very confident it was not fun!
That was the way until I met and worked with a wonderful man and now dear friend.
Mr Jon Paul Holt owner of Avant-Garde artistic Studio Vancouver Canada winner of so many awards and accolades. I was fortunate enough to be a member of his Artistic team and learned so much from him. As he challenged me to work with him on photo shoots. and stage shows.
Jon paul taught me to enjoy playing with hair learn from handling it trying to create a look.
As a medium you can create so many styles and shapes. My dear friends from Vancouver fab hair stylists Jon paul Holt, Ted Mc Kinnon outside Avant-garde Yale town Vancouver Canada. Weather looking for conventional look for a wedding or graduation one must have an idea of what the client wants but it’s also important to have a vision in your mind practice is key.
This series to the left and right were for a graduation a classic look pre coloured low lighted hair using a high lift Blonde on a natural level 4 base.
The low lights compliment the look by giving it texture and showing off the shape.
Building a shape likes this takes a little practice and patients but it’s well worth it.
[note: Using a high lift Blonde on dark hair will always give a very natural low light as it will only lift max of 4 levels depending on developer used. One should consider the pigment base of the Highlift shade ie ash beige violet ect!
A Slightly more Avantgarde look using
a few coloured hair pieces.
Also using a medium to Sculpture a look to Create a hat look.
Slightly edgy but would work well for wedding or Graduation on some one with the confidence to carry it off.
Never force someone to wear a look that they are not comfortable with!
The key is practice and communication knowing that one has to play and get a feel for the hair and the clients needs and expectations. When playing their is no such thing as failure it’s more a case of taking a journey of discovery a firm foundation to build from.
As stated hair colour can also play a key roll to show off a look give it texture and dimension.
By play and practice you can find the look that works with the hair and suites your client soft and low high with softness so much choice.
Have the confidence to step out side your comfort zone but don’t be made to feel uncomfortable when working with a client for a big event or occasion if their is a difference of opinion of a personality clash my advise would be suggest that you part agreeing to differ if is to short and weddings and big formal events expectation run high who needs that stress!
Unless they are modeling for you for a show or photo Shoot then well it’s your call. enjoy have fun challenge your self.
