Neha Mahla is a 31-year-old dental assistant who is expecting her first baby and was looking for an updated hair cut.
Mahla has very thick and naturally wavy hair. It was feeling drab and flat and wanted a haircut that would be easy to manage and work with her lifestyle. Her existing fringe was grown out and too sparse, and her length was not working for her beautiful face shape.
I shampooed her hair with KMS — Moist Repair Shampoo and Conditioner for moisture repair and manageability. I added Moist Repair — Revival Crème through her hair as a leave-in conditioner, then sectioned her hair into a central vertical parting. I cut her hair into a directional forward chin-length bob. I incorporated internal layers to enhance her natural wavy texture and for added body and movement. I created a fuller fringe to frame her eyes and point cut layers to created fullness and volume.
Before styling, I sprayed Oribe — Foundation Mist Blow dry Spray, a weightless hair primer and detangler with thermal protection. I blow dried her hair with a round brush and created a slight bend in her hair using a curling wand to enhance her natural texture. I finished her style with Oribe — Superfine Hair Spray for flexible hold.
After evening Mahla’s complexion with BB Cream, we contour her face with bronzing powder. We rimmed her eyes with black cream liner then softly smoked them out with neutral-brown eyeshadows. We curled her lashes and coated them with black mascara, then filled in her eyebrows to define them. We swept a coral-pink blush on her cheeks to create a healthy glow, and used a pink lip gloss on her lips.
