Nizza Caballero’s hair had become damaged and unmanageable so she asked Nadia Albano for a makeover in time for her 40th birthday
Nizza Caballero is child care worker who had damaged and unmanageable hair. She felt like her style needed to be updated for her 40th birthday.
Caballero has very course, thick and naturally curly hair. It was previously coloured and due to over processing, her ends became very damaged and dry. She wanted a style that would look great down and wavy, and that she could pull back for work.
I shampooed her hair using Oribe — Moisture and Control Shampoo and Conditioner then applied Oribe — Supershine Moisture Cream into her mid-lengths and ends as a leave-in conditioner and cutting lotion. I sectioned her hair into central vertical parting to help me create a symmetrical shape and balance out her haircut. I cut her hair into a diagonal forward medium length style, eliminated the excess bulk by internally weave-cutting her hair and added face framing layers to soften the face.
Before styling, I applied a few pumps of Oribe — Imperial Blowout Transformative Styling Crème through her hair for long lasting style and heat protection. I then blow dried her hair with a boar bristle round brush to create this smooth and bouncy style. To finish I sprayed Oribe — Impermeable Anti-Humidity Spray for maximum humidity shielding and light hold.
We evened out Caballero’s complexion with a primer oil and tinted moisturizer. We added bronzer and blush to warm up her skin tone, then filled in her eyebrows to frame her beautiful brown eyes. We contoured her eyes with neutral-brown eyeshadow colours and lined her eyes with a thin black gel eyeliner. We curled her lashes and coated them with black mascara and finished her look with a layer of sheer pink gloss to add a little sheen.
