Keira Roets is a 32-year-old director of people operations and is moving to the East Coast for a career opportunity. A fresh, sun kissed hair colour seemed fitting for this new season in her life and a welcome shift.
Keira has thick hair and long hair which had previously coloured. The colour was feeling drab and her ends were a little dry. She wanted a colour and cut that is low maintenance, subtle and natural looking. I opted to apply a technique called balayage; a hand painting highlighting technique, combined with foil highlights. I used a decolourizer to create subtle honey-toned ribbons throughout in her hair then refined her highlights I using an ammonia-free, demi-permanent beige-blond tint, which conditions and adds lustre and shine.
I cleansed her hair with Oribe — Signature Shampoo and Conditioner and layered the mid-lengths and ends with Oribe — Foundation Mist, a weightless primer to revitalize and nourish the hair. I trimmed up the length of her hair and incorporated long layers for added softness, bounce and movement.
Before styling, I applied the Oribe — Crème for Style to her mid-lengths and ends for flexible long-lasting hold and frizz taming support. I blow dried her hair with a round brush and touched up the style with a curling wand. To finish the style, I used Oribe — Apres Beach Wave and Shine Spray to create a tousled beachy bombshell style.
Keira has stunning green eyes and beautiful skin. I used a beauty damp blender to naturally even out her complexion and added bronzer to create a sun-kissed glow. On her eyes, I used a few matte cream-eyeshadow in shades of brown and beige, to create a natural looking smoky look. I filled in her eyebrows to frame the eyes and used a cream blush to enhance the colour dewiness in her face. On her lips we went with a sheer glossy finish to pull the look together.
