Clairol Classic Collection Makeover

clairol

My mom has always been supportive of my beauty adventures. She was there to lend her face when I needed practice in makeup school and her hair when I went to cosmetology school. So, of course she was the obvious choice for my model for this project with Clairol!


With the Clairol Professional Classic Collection it’s totally easy to get beautiful rich color in no time. The permanent liquid hair color delivers the 4 signs of healthy-looking color: Deep conditioning, reflective shine, multidimensional shades and long-lasting results.

The product claims all proved to be true when I freshened up my Mom’s dark brown color treated hair with the Clairol Professional Classic Collection’s  “Classic Sunblonde Brown” (6GN).

I selected this particular neutral golden shade because I knew it would provide the best gray coverage while warming up the tone. It was a totally seamless at home color experience that took minimal effort!

The formula created a rich chestnut brown just as I had hoped, not too drastically different from her original color, but in much healthier looking condition. The revamped color definitely has more dimension, complete gray coverage, and a beautiful glossy finish. Click here to see how I did it.

I also gave my mom a fresh makeup application to match her new hair! Her foundation, highlight and shading was all done with my favorite RCMA palette. I swept on Lorac blush in Rose, lined her lids with Salma Hayek Nuance gel eyeliner, and applied Benefit BADgal Lash Mascara. I finished the look with my trusty Ardell #53 false lashes and a fall-friendly berry lip (from Mom’s favorite Lauren Hutton Face Disc).

And now… the big reveal!

I am loving the Clairol Professional Classic Collection! With the Clairol Professional Classic Collection it’s totally easy to get beautiful rich color in no time. The permanent liquid hair color delivers the 4 signs of healthy-looking color: Deep conditioning, reflective shine, multidimensional shades and long-lasting results.

I had a blast earlier freshening up my Mom’s dark brown color treated hair with Clairol’s “Classic Sunblonde Brown” (6GN). I selected this particular neutral golden shade because I knew it would provide the best gray coverage (sorry to spill the beans, Mom!) while warming up the tone. It was a totally seamless at home color experience that took minimal effort!

See below for what I did during her Clairol color makeover! (Please keep in mind that the steps will vary depending on the color level, amount of regrowth, etc. of the hair you’re working with.)

Tools you need:

  • Clairol Professional Classic Collection Hair Color
  • Clairol Pure White Creme Developer
  • Color Bowl
  • Color Brush
  • Hair Clips
  • Gloves

Steps:

  • Separate dry hair into four quadrants and secure with hair clips. (Not mandatory, but I find it easiest to work with the hair by parting it out evenly like this!)
  • Mix equal parts of hair color with developer (I used 2 oz of 6GN and 2 oz of 20 Volume for standard lift).
  • Brush on color mixture to new growth.
  • Pull through to the ends.
  • Process for around 35 minutes total.
  • Wash and style!

Stay tuned for the big before and after reveal of my Mom’s makeover!
