Makeover - Hannah - May 2013

Makeover - Hannah - May 2013

I spotted Hannah in a queue at a recent fashion styling event and was drawn to her warm, friendly face - she'd be great for Gorgeous Me.  And here we are...

 

Age:  43

Dress size:  22

Height:   171cm (5'8)

 

 

BEFORE

 

This beautiful photo of Hannah and her son was taken a couple of years ago.

Let the makeover begin

 

Hannah generally wears her hair tied back, and being so long, it appeared separated from the rest of her.  Her hair is one of her key assets, she needs to enjoy and make the most of it.

 

At the time of the makeover, Hannah had a lot going on personally and was reluctant to have too much cut off.  Sympathetic to this, Krissy cut some shape into it, especially around the face and cut some of the length and weight out of it to give it a healthier and fresher look.  To enhance the colour and shine, Krissy added some gorgeous red highlights.

The beautiful red highlights help to give the hair a richness and interest.
