Badass Brunette

On May 31, 2016 by Corey Powell

Michelle Monaghan, Elizabeth Reaser, Whitney Cummings, and Angelina Jolie are often described as being “sexy,” “sultry”, “mysterious,” but all these chickadees have something else in common: they’re also badass brunettes.

The key to keeping brunette locks from looking brassy is to use different underlying tones, and to maintain it properly. Watch my video above to learn my secrets for achieving beautiful cool brunette hair.

Summer’s Hottest Trend: Balayage Highlights

On May 27, 2015 by Corey Powell

Screen Shot 2015-05-27 at 8.58.15 AMThe summer’s hottest trend is going lighter and looking natural. In my most recent video, we balayaged graphic designer and model, Blanda Eggenschwiler just in time for the warmer weather

What makes Balayage unique versus traditional color techniques? For starters, the hairdresser doesn’t use any foil to create the highlighted look. The technique is more freehand and specialized and requires practice. Luckily for all you #HairJunkies out there, I use the balayage technique all the time, which is unusual considering the trend has only recently come over from the UK this season. But I will say all the A-Listers are coming in just for this treatment.

Balayage means ‘to sweep’ or ‘paint’ in french, which is exactly what I did with Blanda. You can see in the video we worked on numerous sections of the hair, weaving in highlights that are less noticeable than what we’re used to seeing. As your grows out with balayage color, the roots are less noticeable, leaving more of a sun kissed, natural look.

Screen Shot 2015-05-27 at 8.58.15 AMPersonally, my favorite aspect of balayage is that it truly looks effortless. Instead of looking like someone who spends hours in the salon, you look like you just finished spending hours of time on the beach. #HairTip: Ask your hairdresser to match the best color to work into your hair based on your skin tone. So not only will you have the hottest trend of the summer, but it will enhance your skin too.

The look of balayage is timeless, low-maintenance, and will cost you less money in terms how often you’ll need to go in for a color touchup.

Whether you’re blonde, brunette, redhead, or have some crazy purple dye job, you can balayage any color to change things up.

#MakeoverMonday Featuring Georgia Connick

On May 18, 2015 by Corey Powell

Georgia ConnickI recently had the pleasure of working with Georgia Connick, daughter of Harry Connick Jr., who came in and told me that she needed something new to brighten up her style. Georgia’s mother, Jill who is also a client of mine, told her daughter that if she wanted to go lighter/blonde that she had to see Corey Powell, ‘The King of Blonde.”

Her hair was light brunette to begin with, so I hand painted and balayaged some highlights throughout to create a beautiful blonde look with depth and texture. As you can see in the photo, the highlights brighten up her whole face, and now here eyes really pop! It’s a great look on Georgia for summer.

This look is great if your hair is on the darker side and you want to go lighter for the warmer months, without changing your look too drastically. I love her new look!

 

 

 

#MakeoverMonday with Kayslee Collins

On May 11, 2015 by Corey Powell

Kayslee Collins had an important meeting to attend for a job and came in to see me to have the pink removed from her hair and bring her back to her natural color, blonde. We removed as much of the pink as possible in one day without compromising the integrity of her hair. We had her come in the following day to add some balayage highlights and lowlights to create some contrast. Kayslee has beautiful hair and is such a beautiful girl! She is stunning as a natural blonde, do you agree? Leave comments below!

My client Michelle Monaghan looking fantastic in her photo shoot for FAULT Magazine. I had just taken her blonde down a few shades, making her hair look more natural and sun-kissed. I added balayage highlights using Solaris bleach and Olaplex to keep the hair in amazing condition.
