Neandra works on a copper mine in the Democratic Republic of the Congo for 12-week periods (with NO hairdressing salons on site). Following a recent divorce and having lost weight she wanted to look like the new person she was feeling inside. She wore her hair permed and dyed black for easy maintenance (a straightener wouldn’t work with the Congo humidity). We decided to work with Neandra’s natural curl but changed the black (which was too harsh against her Soft skin tone) to lighter shades of warm brown. We introduced Neandra to form fitting styles in bold colours and prints. Upon seeing herself in the mirror Neandra was completely speechless, like she’d discovered this new sexy, curvaceous woman in the mirror for the very first time (one of my most favourite makeover moments EVER!)
