Keratin Complex Complete Makeover With Before and After Photos!Living a busy life as a Project Manager by day and a hard-working mother 24/7, Lori Oehme, always wanted to update her look, but found it difficult to find the time. According to Oehme, she had never been pampered at a salon, and she was three years overdue for a cut and color. Keratin Complex heard Oehme’s story and decided to treat her to a complimentary makeover at Teddie Kossof Salon in Northfield, Illinois, where she received a single process, highlights, hair cut/Keratin Express Blow Out and make-up application. Follow the steps below to see Oehme’s transformation process.




STEP 1: Keratin Complex and the Teddie Kossof Salon changed client Lori’s daily styling routine by treating her to a “Day of Indulgence.” Her hair was colored, cut, and smoothed.

STEP 2: Lori receives a single process KeraHold Keratin-Enhanced Permanent Crème Hair Color treatment. As Lori waits for her hair to process, her hair is getting healthier due to KeraHold’s advanced keratin technology and Six-Liposome Botanical Complex.

STEP 3: John Salvadore, a Teddie Kossof master colorist and Keratin Complex Color Therapy educator, cleanses Lori’s hair with Keratin Complex Blondeshell Shampoo and Conditioner.

STEP 4: Lori is lightened with Keratin Complex’s It’s a Blonde Thing Lightening System.

STEP 5: Lori is ready for styling! John and Lori take a moment together during the service.

STEP 6: Her styling station came equipped with all the essential tools for smooth, shiny hair. Some of the styling products that were used during her makeover included: Bold Hold Maximum Finishing Spray, Flex Flow Flexible Shaping Spray, Lift Off Root Amplifying Styling Gel, Vita Volume Boosting Foam, ceramic ionic round brushes, Intense RX, Stealth III Next Generation Digital Smoothing + Straightening Iron, and Titanium Five-in-One Curling System.

STEP 7: Teddie Kossof Stylist Peter Patras enhances Lori’s look with a detailed hair cut after her Keratin Complex Express Blow Out, which reduces frizz and daily styling time and will allow her to style her hair at home easier.

STEP 8: Teddie Kossof Make-up Artist Kim Marroquin puts the finishing touches on Lori with “wow factor” make-up.

STEP 9: Here is Lori, looking “Keratin Complex Complete!”
