Pamela Stadius is a 44-year-old business manager who wanted a sophisticated new look that would integrate her natural greying hair.
Pamela has naturally wavy and thick density hair. It was previously coloured black/brow and had let it grow out for several months as she wasn’t sure if she should keep the silver or continue colouring it. Her silver is predominantly around the hairline and temple area so we opted to strategically place foil highlights onto the mid and ends in those areas, to lighten the previously coloured areas, and blend out the grey.
I used a strong decolourizer to ensure maximum lift, then toned it with a cool-silver demi-permanent colour. I touched up the rest of her hair using a tone that was close to her natural colour and the results were gorgeous.
I cleansed her hair with Oribe — Signature Shampoo and Conditioner. I then applied a small amount of KMS — Revival Cream onto the mid-lengths and ends as a leave-in conditioner. I cut her hair into a short jaw-length bob and incorporated a side sweeping fringe to frame enhance her face shape.
Before styling, I used KMS — Add Volume Styling Foam for long lasting style support and blow dried her hair using a medium brush. To enhance her texture, I curled her hair using a 1-inch curling wand and finished with Oribe — Flash Form Spray Wax.
Pamela has a gorgeous skin tone and loves wearing a bold lip colour. We started by evening out her complexion using concealer and a light dusting of powder foundation. We then added a hint of bronzer to contour her face, curled and coated her lashes with black mascara and finished her look with a deep berry lip — perfect for fall.
Even out complexion: MAC Studio Fix Power in NC 30 with Benefit Porefessional Super Setter Spray.
Concealer: Benefit Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer in N07
Brows: Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil #6 with Benefit 24-Hr Brow Setter Clear Eyebrow Gel.
Bronzer and Highligher: NARS Casino Bronzer and MAC Hyper Real Glow Highlighter
Lip: Glo Skin Beauty Gloss in Plumberry
