HOW-TO: Mediterranean Espresso Updo

IT&LY Hairfashion International Creative Director Pasquale Caselle transformed this brunette with dark eyes into a beautiful Mediterranean beauty, changing her hair color to a rich espresso and styling her hair to compliment her face shape with a bold updo. For successful makeovers, Pasquale recommends to consider a client’s eyes and skin tone and match accordingly with hair color.

COLOR: According to Pasquale, "At the moment I met Alina, her dark eyes popped while her existing hair color masked her olive complexion" To correct her color, Pasquale used IT&LY's Aquarly Hair Color 4CP with 20 volume developer.

STYLE: Prior to blow drying with a large round brush, Pasquale applied a small amount of Pure Water Drops for shine and Pure Style Mousse Extra Strong concentrating on the roots for lift and volume. Next, he back combed the hair leaving the ends free and loose. He then brought all the hair up into a textured updo and secured it with bobby pins. The top was smoothed over with his fingers to create additional texture and height. To finish, he sprayed Pure Definition Hair Spray and added a gold band for an accent.
