Below is another of Karla Gore’s hairstyle creations: a truly sexy mane with deep red and violet shades designed to accentuate curls and texture.
Hair: Karla Gore

Model: Rosa Lopez
Haircolor goal: To create dimension and add luster.
Karla layered shades of red with shades of violet in a single process/free style highlights combination. A low maintenance color designed to create luminosity and showcase hair movement.
Haircut concept: To construct a balanced haircut that looks good when styled naturally curly but also straight; to control texture and create hair movement.
Layers work great for this type of hair. They look best when layers are cut medium to long to keep hair from puffing out. To encourage healthy curl formation and diminish frizz, Karla kept her thinning shears away from Rosa’s hair.
Styling concept: Well formed curls. Bigger is better!
Karla dried Rosa’s hair into six flat twists under a hooded dryer to reduce frizz. She finger-combed it afterwards, and polished the curls by wrapping large sections with a 1/4 inch curling iron.
