The LOOK: The Leaves Are Brown, And So Is Your Hair

Saturday, November 23, 2013

 

This time of year is great for going a little darker and deeper for your fall look; so why not brown? When all things are deepening from the leaves to the skies lets deepen our look to more luxurious and opulent.

Here are some tips on going deeper and darker easy:

1) it is always better to go dark by adding lowlights into your lighter color as not to shock.

2) Another fun way to go deeper is to try semi-permanent colors; which last 4 weeks, and then will fade out to your previous color.

3) Another way is to try wigs to see which shade or tone matches your skin tone best. Remember, you will have to alter your makeup as well! You will not be able to get away with your summer makeup on darker hair in the winter.

From Sex and the City 2 to Rachel Getting Married, from The Sorcerer's Apprentice to Bride Wars, Frank Barbosa has styled some of the biggest celebrities in film, TV, and theater. He's just finished styling on location alongside film stylist Alan D'Angerio on the film, The Odd Life of Timothy Green, starring Jennifer Garner. He's been in the industry for 17 years, moving from hip neighborhoods in Chicago, to Boston's Newbury St, to Bellevue Avenue in Newport. He maintains that his real passion, though, is being behind a salon chair at Frank Antonio Hair and Makeup in Newport.
