Cover Model Natalia Kern- Color and Hair Cut


I did both a color and cut for Natalia just before her shoot for the March cover of Ultra Fit magazine. I gave Natalia a subtle change to her rich, brunette color by adding warm, deep golden tones. I also do a clear gloss over her hair to add shine so her color looks fabulous both under the studio lights and at home with her little ones. (Believe it or not she's two months pregnant here!).

Spring Color- Golden, Chesnut Brown with Sunkissed Ends

Nat C.
Nat has been my client for a couple of years. She has had a variety of colors with me ranging from highlights, to ombre color, to going back to her natural color- a deep, rich (almost black) espresso. This time she was opting for a lighter look for spring. It was quite a lenghty process (6 hrs) but I removed her previously dark hair color with two applications of a color lifter. Next, I used Schwarzkopf color restore her hair to a warm, golden chesnut brown with slightly lighter ends for a sunkissed look.

Schwarzkopf 2013 Colors for Summer

Natalia Kern, Color and Cut

Natalia is a natural brunette. Another stylist had lightened her nautral color to warm, medium auburn.
She was wanting to restore her hair to her natural color and add shine.
Natalia is a fitness model. She had a photoshoot for Oxygen magazine (we did this color just 2 days before!) and needed a color that looked radiant under the lights during her shoot but also looked great in natural light for her everyday lifestlye.
I deepened her exsisting color to a rich, chocolate brunette. I custom mixed a color to add warm tones under the sutdio lights while still giving her a natural, neutral tone in everyday light.
Next, I gave her a cut to add volume and fulness
to her long hair.
Look for Natalia on the cover of an upcoming issue of Oxygen magazine!
