Carly: Hi Sarah.
Sarah: Carly, tell me about yourself?
Carly: My name is Carly Poyser. I live in— and I’m 26, married to Andy. I’ve got 2 little boys at least 27 months and 16 months and I work 4 days a week in London.
Sarah: So you have 2 toddlers and you work almost full time. That’s a pretty hectic schedule.
Carly: It is hectic I don’t have a lot of time to do anything.
Sarah: Now your make-up, how much time are you spending on that each day?
Carly: Very little, if I’ve got to go out for work then obviously I will have something on them to train.
Sarah: You do wear make-up for work?
Carly: Sometimes, if I have time, yes.
Sarah: And what kind of make-up changes do you want to take away with you today?
Carly: Something that’s quick and easy to do, but bright fresh, gives me a bit more confidence.
Sarah: Okay it gives you a nice healthy fresh glow everyday, great! Well I’m going to take you to introduce you to Gary, he’s going to get started on your hair.
Sarah: Gary, I would like to meet Carly. Carly take a seat.
Gary: Hi Carly, pleased to meet you.
Sarah: You can see really that already it’s a pretty low maintenance style that Carly has got and I think that you just wanted some small changes and some tips of styling. I’ll let you talk about it and I’ll come back and see you later.
Carly: Thank you.
Gary: Thanks Sarah. Hey, Carly so you are a mother of 2 small boys, is that right?
Gary: Yeah, very little time. For yourself I bet and you’re working how many days a week?
Carly: 4 days in London.
Gary: So what’s going to happen in your hair in a moment, how do you manage your hair?
Carly: In the small time I have in the morning a bit of wax.
Gary: You use just a little bit of product. I think what would be great is to pretty much work with your existing length everywhere that really reduce the weight out there. I think, do you have a little bit of movement in your hair that will wave in there?
Carly: Yeah there is wave in my hair that’s quite high to keep it looking tidy.
Gary: Okay and I think what would be really nice is to work with that natural weight and we get fringe coming across a little bit more quite down so you don’t have to do anything to it if you don’t want to.
The other thing I have noticed is that it looks a little dull are you open to some color for that?
Carly: Oh definitely lovely.
Gary: Excellent. I mean you’ve got a nice and natural base to work from and I think we need to just freshen everything up for you and we do have a color expert here for you, he’s name is AJ. AJ, this is Carly.
AJ: Hi Carly, how do you do?
Carly: Hi A.J.
AJ: A pleasure to meet you.
Carly: And you.
AJ: Right so it’s been quite a while since you last have your hair colored then?
Carly: About 6 months now.
AJ: Excellent. So I think just to enhance the haircut, we really bring out the texture in the hair. I think just put in some really simple color and just nice tones to really enhance your skin to be really working through to enhance that fringe area but something a little bit fresher. You know just a couple of varying tones and it’s just going to really liven the whole thing up to bring out those beautiful eyes and your great skin tone.
AJ: Okay great.
Carly: Thank you.
AJ: Let’s go ahead. Let’s color.
Sarah: So AJ does his stuff, he’s told me he’s using a mixture of cranberry and vanilla colorings. Yeah, I was a little worried about that too but he’s the expert and Carly has put her faith in him so let’s see how it turns out.
AJ: Excellent so the color is all complete, Gary, okay. As you can see we just really broken it up slightly graduated it towards the front so it’s a bit lighter through that finish but especially due to the density of the hair that just given a lot more life, as you said a lot more energy.
Gary: Okay brilliant. Thank you AJ.
AJ: Okay, goodbye.
Carly: Thank you AJ.
Gary: Alright so we’re going to start from the back just literally cut into the hair. We can use a texturizing technique, you know what that means is instead of working too blunt or too hard anywhere it’s just going to be very soft and quite loose everywhere so you could just put a bit product in it and it gives that— yeah.
Carly: I love it.
Sarah: Now Gary gets to work on the cuts, because Carly’s hair is so short he’s not going to take off anymore length. He’s just focusing on the styling.
Gary: Hi Sarah.
Sarah: This is looking great.
Sarah: Gary there’s not much that you’ve cut off is there.
Gary: We didn’t do a great deal with cutting lots of length off, what we did work on is the detail.
Sarah: Yeah and I mentioned AJ saying something about vanilla and cranberry and I see what he means now I can really see all the different colors coming through but not what I imagined, quite subtle.
Carly: It is, it’s lovely.
Gary: I think when you think vanilla and cranberry.
Sarah: I thought a bit crazy, yeah.
Gary: It’s really good and what it has done if you notice it has really brought out the skin tone and the eye coloring a lot more.
Sarah: So everybody notices is that your skin looks a lot more even in tone than it did, and it’s true your eyes look so blue.
And what about styling what kind of technique did you use?
Gary: We didn’t do any blow drying at all where she cut the hair from wet to dry, now when you do it in the morning just towel dry it or squeeze the moisture out of your fingers. Then you mentioned that you’re using a wax in them, I feel that might be a little bit heavy in your hair and so dull the whole thing down it will make it till you grease it.
Sarah: And I bet it’s quite comforting to know that you don’t need to use a blow dryer to do this.
Carly: Definitely, to save time in the morning something quick and easy and it looks good, it’s brilliant so thank you.
Gary: It’s been a pleasure.
Sarah: We’ve done your hair so I would like to get you into the make-up chair now.
Sarah: Carly you’ve got this new color that’s going through your hair that has really brought out just the color of your eyes. To me they look so much more blue now. The redness in your skin I’ve noticed has also gone down quite a bit. What I want to do is start off by using an anti-redness calming lotion that you use over the top of your moisturizer and underneath your foundation to just blend away the redness.
Now it is green. I know that’s quite scary but really if you just use it on the areas that you need those, really it’s this apples at the cheeks that I want to and make redness. Just because I think if you’re going to use any blush over the top, you won’t really see the color of the make-up unless you even out this tone here.
Foundation, I’m really going to— your face is a tiny bit warmer than the rest of your body so I’m going to try and match it up to your neck area so your color. Sometimes that makes people feel a little bit pale and washed out. You can always go back and add warmth form certain blush.
You see once the foundation goes over the top of them anti-redness lotion you left with practically no redness. We’re just using a tiny bit of foundation. I’ve kept this foundation as sheer as possible so we can use a light reflecting concealer under the eyes. This is actually quite kinky and a little bit pearlized to come and bounce right away from into the eye.
I would like to use a completely different concealer for the face. One that’s much richer. For most people it’s around the nostrils. Tiny bit down the center of the nose. A little bit of redness still showing through in the chin, okay so time for powder, this is a translucent powder I’m using this because I don’t want to add any color to your skin just simply want to set the make-up to give the concealer and the foundation a little bit of an extra blend.
I find that the blunt pencils are the most natural looking actually on any skin coloring. This is a lilac cream eye shadow and a little bit of a shimmer, they’re so pretty and they’re so easy to apply because you have quite a lot of space between your eyebrows and eyelashes. We’re actually going to wash this over the entire eye area.
Really, to counteract the lilac that I just put on I’m going to take this very pure white underneath the brow. Right in the corners just widens and opens up the eye. This can be your kind of very fresh neutral eye wakening day time look. I’ll do the rest of your make-up and then we’ll go back and then we’ll just add some smuginess.
Nothing makes eyes look more blue than black. This is a very pretty petally pink blush to go in the apples of the cheeks. Just smile and really get it where you would naturally blush lighten the apple of the cheek. A little bit of a plumy colored lip liner. It really is important to blend that liner down as you go along.
Carly: I don’t use a lot of liner for that reason.
Sarah: Exactly. Well if you ever want to, to make sure that you really keep perfect shape of your lips, draw the line in blend over with your fingertips or lip brush or a cotton pad. So that could be I think for you quite a good, quite a quick easy freshening way to go to work everyday.
Sarah: If you want to take this look into the evening, I’m going to use a black eye shadow stifled quite finely, quite closely to the lashes. I think that it’s always good to have a black eye shadow with you for when you do want to go out last moment you can really take into evening make-up.
Sarah: So you can see that even though that is just one quick easy step it’s already taking you more into the evening it’s where the eyes completely more dramatic. Any more than that, you might want to tone down the lip blacker a little bit, but I think it’s great. I think your eyes are very blue. It’s very pretty and very fresh.
Now this is what you looked like this morning when you came in and now this is what you look like now.
Carly: It is an amazing change, the colors in the hair and the make-up has been brilliant, thank you very much.
Sarah: It’s great. You’ve got cranberry all the way through your make-up and hair, it’s lovely.
