Building Texture Upon Texture - Daytime to Evening Looks

Lauren Salapatek | March 12, 2016 | 3:23 AM
MODEL #1: This model's texture was prepped using a traditional curling wand. Intricate braids were added on the sides and back of the model's head. Mizani wanted the final look to resemble an undercut. This model's texture was transformed on stage using backcombing. It's a perfect example of how you can transition a look from daytime to evening wear.

MODEL #2: To create the "Fro Show" (as Mizani likes to call it) you first need to give your cilent a layered haircut (as seen on this model). The look was created using two-strand twists, that they let sit overnight, and then they pieced it out with backcombing. The overall look is full of dimension.

MODEL #3: This model already had slight wavy texture in her hair. To create this look, Mizani used their Laces techhnique. They wrapped her hair using foam, covered it with aluminum foil, and then flatironed the hair. To create the final look, they used backcombing for the airy texture.

MODEL #4: This model has naturally straight hair. To create her texture, they crimped her entire head and then brushed it all out. She was later transformed on stage from a day to evening look. To create her final look, they French braided the hair down the middle and then left a little fluff in the back.

MODEL #5: To create this model's texture, Mizani used a flatiron to create the waves. They also said you can use hot rollers to create the same effect. This edgy look is defined by its shaved sides and etched graphics to its triangle bob (which gives the overall look more drama and effect).

Mizani's Runway show on the SalonCentric stage at America's Beauty Show in Chicago was all about building texture upon texture. The presentation featured models with all levels of texture - from straight to kinky, curly.

How To Winterize a Summer Blonde: Babylights with Reverse Balayage using Redken pH Bonder

Alison Alhamed and Jamie Newman | November 29, 2016

Our summer blonde made the perfect model to demonstrate the beauty of Redken’s new pH Bonder because although she isn’t frequently coloring her hair, living in New York City means she’s walking outside a lot with exposure to the sun and city elements—plus thermal damage from regular use of a curling wand or flatiron. So with protection and hair health being the two key benefits of the additive, she was all in.

The hair was cut (12 inches) and donated to Wigs For Kids. After some layering, face framing and texturizing, Julian got busy with color. Formula here.
