Hair on Wednesday: Copper Dreams

Finally! You guys get to see a picture of my lovely, talented cousin, Shanna. (Who owns Captured Photography)  She is the mastermind behind almost all of the photography on my website. Not only is she a mad talented photographer, she is a beautiful lady with the most stunning crystal blue eyes you will ever see.  That is the main focus of our hair creation for her latest look.  Shan is definitely willing to go for more dramatic, expressive looks, but I have to say this latest one takes the cake!
She told me that she wanted a fiery copper red with a few blonde streaks throughout on the top portion of her head, then a rich deep auburn red on the bottom portion.  Sounds simple enough right? WRONG! It would be except that Shan had brown hair with blonde highlights! I won't go into hairstylist specifics on what it took for us to get to the final look, but let's just say it took a total of about 6-7 hours, lots of labor hours for me, lots of sitting in the chair for her, and tons of color, and brain power (i.e. formulating color) for me to come to our final look! I couldn't be happier! We also decided on more layers and a super blunt bang to finish her off.

Here is Shan before with her golden brown base and blonde highlights.




Here she is after as a copper blonde with deep auburn beneath and a layered cut and blunt bang.  She also decided to spice up her makeup with a simple cat eye and poppy red lips. (She also has amazing makeup skills!)  Isn't she stunning?






So, what do you guys think?? What a change right!?? Thanks Shan for everything and letting me and my creative hands get onto that head of yours!!

omg she looks amazing!!! copper really suits her, well done honey!

...and thank you for you super nice comment! In my profile picture it's my real hair, actually...it was my real hair since last year...and then I decided to stop bleaching them (I had them white and occasionally I made them pink or pale blue) because my head just couldn't take it anymore...surely you know what I mean...! but I really love color and cut in that photo! I was just out from hairdressing, that's why the cut looks so neat that ppl think it's a wig :)

That is a super drastic change, but it looks fabulous on her. So jealous!
Please pass along that I would love for her to do a day-long photo shoot with me so that the entire world can partake in my unique beauty and so I can be the first and only 5'1" supermodel because short girls need representation, too.
kthx.
