Before

When it came styling a great look for a night out, we knew our very own hair design and makeup specialist Tina, whose love of the industry and passion for making people feel beautiful, was a perfect choice.

Her hair was previously cut by Jackie, an artistic director at the salon, and colored by hair design artist Bekah.

But, a night out needs all the touches, so Tina’s hair was prepped with a light oil to fight the frizz, and a volumizing mousse to fight gravity. It was then blown dry with a round brush on top to maximize volume, and finished with a large barrel curling iron.

For her makeup, we decided to apply an airbrush-look foundation, which was highlighted and contoured for a more polished look. Many brands of this type of foundation are available; the key is finding your match. A copper shimmer was used to highlight her eyes, and a subtle cat eye look added for the liner on top. We used a deep coral lipstick to match her outfit.

To complete her look, she accessorized with fun earrings, and a necklace from Stella and Dot, were she’s also a stylist.

Of course, we know that sometimes it takes first-hand experience to get a look just right, so we encourage you to stop by Platinum and we’ll be more than happy to set you up for your next night out!
