Sydney Brown is a talented young woman who works in a screen printing facility. She enjoys drawing, sewing, reading, and hiking. Her mom, dad, and brother are very important to her. Sydney has been a guest at LaRitz for many years. She wanted to get a bold and unexpected change that would fit her new bold personality.
Brooklyn Lane has been doing Sydney’s hair for a long time and was excited to try something completely different. Sydney has been planning (and drawing!) out this change for quite some time. She knew Brooklyn could recreate her vision so she gave her some freedom when it came to the color and cut. Sydney had never colored her hair. Brooklyn took her from her natural warm brown to a rich dark plum. The real change came when Brooklyn cut over 10 inches from the sides and back to create an easy to manage pixie. To keep it modern and youthful, the top was left disconnected. To style, Redken Pillow Proof Primer was misted all over her damp hair. Pureology’s Gold Defined Contour Shine Gel was used on the sides and back for a polished, shiny, brushed back look. For the disconnected top, Redken’s new High Rise Duo Volumizer was generously applied from roots to ends. After being blown dry, Brooklyn sprayed Redken Hot Sets and used a curling iron to create soft waves.
While Brooklyn was styling Sydney’s hair, Marie Felder was applying the perfect make up look to compliment her new style. To prep her skin, Marie used new bareMinerals Skinlongevity Vital Power serum and Smart Combination lightweight moisturizer. Original foundation in Fair was brushed all over for a flawless complexion. Limelight from the new Neutral Attraction palette was the perfect peachy pink blush shade for Sydney’s fair skin. To accentuate her blue eyes and violet toned hair, Marie created a soft violet brown smoky eye using the Posh Neutrals. Endless Orchid eyeliner helped define her eyes. For Sydney’s eyebrows, Marie shaped them with the Dark Blonde Brow Powder. Lash Domination Petite Precision brush allows mascara to be applied to even the smallest of lashes. Before lipstick was applied, Marie swept Original Mineral Veil all over her face to give Sydney the airbrush finish. Raise the Bar lip color was the last step.
Sydney said everyone loved her new look because it was a bit extreme and unexpected for her. She can’t wait to play around with all of unique options she’ll have with her disconnected style.
