Makeover Masterpiece

Charli Granato is our amazing makeover this month. Charli is a new guest with LaRitz Salon and Spa. She is a theatre major with a focus in stage combat at Oklahoma State University. Charli enjoys acting, sword work, and cosplay. She is the youngest of three children. Her sister is about to have her second child and her brother is working construction like their father. She said that her mom and sister are the prettiest people she knows. When her hair was long, Charli wore it very casual. Sometimes she would braid it before bed so that it would be curly in the morning.


When Charli came to LaRitz, her hair was a grown out brown to red to blonde ombre. From all of the processes, her ends had become dry and damaged. Before coloring, her stylist Candice Newsom cut several inches from the length, creating a classic long bob.  

Candice added a lot of texture and movement throughout her hair, utilizing Pureology cutting techniques. In doing this, most of the previous red and blonde color was removed from Charli’s hair. To get Charli back to her natural color as desired, Candice chose a dark neutral brown. To style, first Candice used Redken’s Diamond Oil in damp hair. This was followed by Pureology’s Instant Levitation Mist mixed with the Smoothing Gel. This added texture and controlled the frizz. To dry, a large round brush was used. The result was a beautiful, shiny, rich brown color with a complementary haircut. With this new cut and color, Charli is able to quickly fix her hair in the morning and still look trendy.

Charli likes to keep her makeup natural with a pop of color on her lips so that’s exactly what Kassi Bock did for her. She used bareMinerals barePro foundation to give a long lasting, even complexion. Kassi applied a light layer of Queen Tiffany to Charli’s eyelids & Lash Domination mascara.  Then Kassi used Pretty In Pink blush on Charli’s cheeks. For the finishing touch, Kassi used Devious matte liquid lip color for the perfect fall shade.
