ALEXANDRA, 20: VET STUDENTMedium Skin Tone
Alexandra has had the same hairstyle since she was a young girl, so any change was nerve-wracking. The deep chocolate brown base colour with lots of highlights complimented her Medium skin tone and added lots of natural texture. The blunt cut, below the jaw, with lots of layers, softens her overall face shape beautifully. Alexandra has an acne-prone skin, so we suggested she replaces her BB cream for a full-cover foundation. The dash of lipstick colour enhances her natural beauty. Alexandra felt ‘safe’ in dull and murky clothing colours but they drained her skin tone so opted for basic colours that were dramatic, making her look like a supermodel!
“I was completely transformed. I couldn’t believe that the person in the photographs was me – I was immensely impressed by the whole teams’ expertise and professionalism. – Alexandra”
