Salon Chemistry and Artifact Boutique join forces
WHEN Tara Speck came in she had the generic curly hair haircut – lots of long layers. Salon Chemistry transformed her with a cut that was shorter in the back and longer in the front with the back layers shorter to enhance curliness. “We always want people to be able reproduce what we do, so we took into consideration that she wears her hair curly 99% of the time,” said Stylist Jason Nichols. Owner Anthony Giunta blew it out straight and styled it. “We went with a glam look to offset what she’s used to on a daily basis, keeping in mind that the next day everything would be back to normal.” Jenny Randell kept the makeup very natural. “She’s pretty on her own, so we made sure her natural beauty was first and foremost.”
To complement her dark complexion, Tara was fitted in a sexy, sleeveless, open-back, sequin dress in black-and-tan animal print by Artifact Boutique. The best part? The dress only costs $49. Of course, for Tara it was free. She was also setup with a dazzling pair of gold, hoop-linked earrings, priced at $10. To top off the look, she’s wearing a wide, ornate, gold-and-black bangle bracelet priced at $26. With Amanda’s styling help, Tara was able to design an entire outfit for under $100.
