How to Properly Layer Hair Products for your Next Audition
Auditioning as an actor or actress in Hollywood is a tough experience. To stand out in an audition, you must be unique. A good hair style is a good place to start. If you take a look at many individuals who go for auditions, you will notice that majority of the girls wear their hair straight with soft waves curled with a curling iron. Do not get me wrong, this is a nice look. However, it might not be the look that will get you a role in a movie.
What I like about auditions is that you have the chance to express your style. Before the actual date of auditions, experiment with different hair colours, haircuts and highlights. However, before you begin your adventure, ensure that you exclude extreme looks such as colourful highlights, bold colouring and super-long extensions.
Here are a few tips for my beautiful brunettes:
For brunette beauties, show off your dark locks and add some movement and depth by adding lowlights or highlights. With your highlights, be cautious about going too light. You may end up looking like a skunk. Whether you have brown or black hair, you may want to inform your hairdresser that you would like highlights with a caramel toner. We may desire blonde highlights in our minds, however, the look that we truly want is a copper/caramel colour. This will intermingle better with your darker hair and avoid giving you that contrasted/strip look.
If you are more of a solid-hair colour kind of chic, lowlights might work well for you by providing depth to your hair or as a colour booster. A colour booster will increase colour performance and give your hair the extra oomph that you are looking for.
• Consider wearing your hair completely straight using a flat-iron, instead of wearing it with soft waves. Super-straight hair looks awe-inspiring when you are dancing, so that is always a big plus for you.
• Consider bangs, only if you are absolutely sure. Allow time for growing them back out if you are not contented with them. Try swooped bangs for a more subtle look.
• If you are curly-head, give it a shot and you will stand out.
• If you struggle with thin hair, try adding subtle layers to add thickness.
• Make sure that you have an expert stylist blend your own hair with the extensions for a natural look that is in case you want to wear the extensions.
There are few methods of adhering the extensions to the head. They include:
• Taped in extensions
• Link or micro-link( silicone inside a metal tube) extensions
• Clip-in extensions
You can also have the extensions braided in (tracks) or you can use a keratin bond. Personally, I recommend Tracks. Tracks is a technique where your natural hair is braided and then the extensions are sewn into the braid.
Be cautious when experimenting with hair colour. The addition of a chemical to your hair damages it. So if you are going to try out new styles, consult a professional stylist. You will be stressed and devastated if you have to audition with chemically over-processed and damaged hair.
