Making it Over Moment: Ombre it is... for recession proof hair

Clark Russell and regular guest Stylist Jeffery Lotspeich talk about Ombre, the new coloring technique that has hit Hollywood by storm. Now coined the recession proof coloring technique, fashion forward moms and ladies on budgets are getting their Ombre on.
An example of a great Ombre look. The tones are even and the highlights and lowlights blend nicely with the Ombre root color. Gives a nice natural sunkissed look. The idea is to get a convincing and natural look.
An example of a not so good Ombre look. We love Drew, but this look has to go. This ombre look does not give a natural sun kissed look, but rather a I didn't have the money or time to get the highlights done. Looks like Drew could use some balayage done to break some of that mess up. Ombre Highlights are on special at Clark Russell the salon!

BEAUTY TIP: The Four Section Blow Out for Curly Hair and SPECIAL BONUS FEATURE!

This week I will demonstrate how to get a quick blow out done for those of you who have a full head of curls and little time to style. Now for a little more instruction: Notice that we used a round brush that was wide, this give you a faster straightening time and less wave. When blowing out use a good cocktail of a straightening balm, leave in conditioner and shine serum. I used "straighten up" and "shine luxe" from my be Clarked line. The great thing about these two products is that they offer leave in conditioner, straightening power, color protection and heat protection and protect against free radicals all day. How to get a Perfect Finishing Look: Now that you have a great new blow out! Try a quick updo to transition from the office to an evening out.
