Makeover - Jane - May 2013

Makeover - Jane - May 2013

 

Jane recently turned 40 and it was at this point she decided she needed change in her life, beginning with a makeover.  Well Jane had a real treat in store with a shopping trip, a morning of pampering and then a photo shoot.

 

Age:  40

Dress size:  22-24

Height:   172cm (5'8)

body shape

 

Jane's body shape is straight - there is no difference in the width of her shoulders, waist or hips. 

Straight

 

colours

 

Jane's colour palette is clear and cool - her blonde hair, blue eyes and pinky coloured skin tone lend itself to clear, bright colours and those with a cool, blue undertone.

let the fun begin...

 

Krissy, from Kristina Raffaele's, recommended Jane shift away from the solid blonde and introduce a slightly darker but softer and warmer colouring to work better with her skin colour and tone down the rediness in her cheeks.  Darker, warm highlights were also introduced.  This colour combination will also help with management of the grey re-growths.  

 

Jane has naturally beautiful curls so Krissy worked with them, cutting a lot of the weight out of the existing volume.  She also elongated Jane's face by introducing a more shapely and less defined fringe, something softer.  The new style, with more layers to enhance the curls, will be easy for Jane to manage herself.

"I had an awesome couple of days, learning about putting clothes together and how a change in hair colour makes a lot of difference to my skin tones. I will be buying a couple of key pieces for my wardrobe, which I think will become well worn favourites."
