HOW-TO: Pixie Pinup with The Doves and HairdreamsIn this photo shoot with The Doves, Sonya Dove described the colors she used to color the Hairdreams extensions as being those you’d spy in a diamond as the light hits it and it flares. “We used soft, muted, pastel tones—some lavender, soft gray, soft pinks, and a soft yellow. And while our model is already blonde, we went lighter because we wanted a very pale, soft base.” The Doves colored each extension and asked that the stylist and make-up artists refl ect these colors in the wardrobe and make-up.
