Model Hannah Jeter recently paid a visit to her go to colorist, Matrix Celebrity Stylist George Papanikolas, to refresh her sun-kissed locks. George has been the mane stylist behind her consistently gorgeous color rocked on red carpets and in the latest Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.
Now an expectant mom, George explains why the color is just right for her and why other expectant moms should consider the look.
“Balayage highlights are perfect for expecting moms. They don’t touch the scalp so you don’t have to worry about chemicals going into the blood stream. By focusing on the face frame, natural part and ends, you can create a beautiful glow. Using the balayage technique creates a soft grow-out so maintenance can be spaced out several months too.“
“For Hannah specifically, I did my signature 2-step technique. I hand painted highlights framing the face and through the crown for blended, delicate color. Then I back combed large horizontal slices into V shapes to create the bold mid-shaft and ends. The combination creates a seamless color melt from soft highlights at the root to a stronger more bold highlight at the mid-lengths and ends. I use Matrix Light Master mixed with Matrix Bond Ultim8 Bond Protecting System, which I always use on my clients to keep the hair in ideal condition.”
“To safely maintain the color, I recommend using products from the new Matrix Biolage R.A.W. collection. The products are 70-100% natural origin, and have no sulfates, silicones, parabens or artificial colorants.”
