TIME FOR A CHANGE
When we met Leticia Rossi, we immediately knew she was our candidate for a makeover. And although she has beautiful features, her hair is a bit discolored and the long bangs are a bit too dense covering her eyes.

A CHANGE OF COLOR
The first step was to apply some color to give her hair a more uniform hue. Our expert, Christo opted for a light brown, which is her natural tone, since it goes well with her skin complexion. However, in place of hair dye, our stylist used the Colorective system, which is a vegetable based treatment with color that "conditions the hair while returning its natural shine without any chemical process." This system is available in shampoo and conditioner with six different tones at ShopCurlisto.com.

Next, Christo decided on a cut with angles that would give volume to her hair. "She has hair that is very dense in texture which gives it that no form appearance. In that case, it is best to cut in diagonals to give her hair more body and volume," he said. Aside from that, he also decided to cut down the bangs just a bit. "Her hair is too long in front of her face and the bangs make her eyes look a lot smaller. She has long and beautiful lashes that are easily covered up by the hair," said our expert.

PROTECT YOUR HAIR!
Before submitting the hair to the heat of a blow dryer, our stylist, who has worked with artists like Maite Perroni and Dayanara Torres, suggests using a product that protects the hair from such heat. In this case, Christo used the spray Protein Boost (above) and the protective gel Straight Time Glaze from his very own Curlisto collection.

TIPS FROM THE EXPERT
Christo also suggests you dry your hair slightly with a blow dryer before using the hairbrush, as this could prevent damaging the hair if you comb while it is still wet. Another tip is to part your hair and dry it in sections to avoid any extra damage.

GIVE IT SOME VOLUME
As the hair was drying, our stylist applied a bit of hair spray while putting the hair in curls to get that extra voluminous look.

To complete the transformation we called upon makeup artist Johanna from the salon Christo Fifth Avenue who applied a base by MAC in two tones to really bring out the color in Leticia's complexion. She did the same for the dark circles under her eyes. Also applied was a bit of a darker tone along the sides of her nose to make it look more narrow.

THE RIGHT POWDER
In place of colored powders, our expert chose a more translucent makeup powder which she assures, "it takes away the shine produced by the base layer and at the same time doesn't give it a real heavy look." Johanna used translucent powders by the brand MAC.

In order to make the eyes the center of attention, the makeup artist opted for a smoky effect. Before adding the eye shadow she applied a bit of base by Urban Decay. "This helps keep the eye shadow in its place," she explained.

To achieve that ideal smoky look, Johanna recommends using two eye shadows, one light and one dark. The darker shade should be applied to the lower part of the eyelids and should fade in with a brush to give it a rounder shape, like the 224 by MAC. "This brush is essential, now that the most important thing to achieve that smoky effect is to fade in the darker shadow and mix it in well with the lighter one on the upper part of the eyelids," she assured.

Now that she is made up, Christo removed the curlers and added a bit of hair spray as he shuffled around her newly cut hair style. "With this technique we create beautiful waves and gives the hair a livelier look," he stated.

At first glance of Leticia's new look, we all looked in awe as did she. "I feel great, I really like my new look," said Leticia as she posed confidently in front of our camera. "We gave her a nice retro look that fits her well. She looks glamorous. Now you can see her beautiful eyes and lashes," said Christo as he looked on pleased with the transformation.
