Coming a long way from Staten Island and a Heavy Brooklyn accent, Amanda, an edgy, young, and pretty much fully tattooed freelance colorist comes in with a super short bob and the dream to have long hair. “I’m tired of having short hair,” Amanda explains. “I’ve experimented with color on my own hair so much in the past six years that I’ve damaged it and was forced to cut it off.”
Amanda is 21 years old and has been doing color since she was 15. She enjoys everything about the beauty industry, and has pursued a career as a celebrity air brush tan technician and started her own line of hair accessories called ETCnyc that she hopes to be in stores by Summer 2014. “I love making people feel beautiful and changing up their look, sometimes its good to have a change.”
Granting her wishes, David CotteBlanche used 14 inch clip in hair extensions to give her the look of long, sexy, voluminous hair.
First, I pre curled the extensions. I then blow dried and smoothed out Amanda’s hair using Kerastase’s Forme Fatale and the Kerastase Elixir Serum.
Starting a two inch section from the back, I started to tease the hair. I put in two of the clip in extensions.
I created another half inch section, teased it and clipped in two more extensions, I did the same thing all over. I then smoothed out her natural hair over the extensions to cover the clips, and teased the extensions to give volume.
