This season has been busy for David Bamford, co-owner of Therapy Hair Studio, and his team. Hehad the pleasure of working with David Peck, Houston Fashion Designer, shooting his new Fall Collection 2013 “Look Book”.
It was a long, but fantastic day. Special Thanks to Jimmy Blake who managed to get some great editorial shots.
Top Houston Hairstylist David Bamford stops by Great Day Houston to share their tips to look 10 pounds thinner without diet and exercise.
“It’s really about trying to get the perfect beautiful open shape of the face which is the main goal. To do that we add highlights, lowlights and shaping the hair to balance facial proportion.”
“As you can see on Hallie Berry this cut showcases her bone structure, the focus is on the eyes and cheeks and that is really what we are looking for.”
5 Ways to trim your look
“Look at Gwyneth Paltrow“, says David Bamford, “Smoothing the hair down and giving it some vertical length always elongates the face. This highlights an oval face shape better.”
TEASE YOUR HAIR
“One of the latest textures of the season and its about getting the hair teased up with a backbrush and making the hair almost like cotton candy. Use this technique to give you some height at the crown to make the hairstyle shape around your face so it frames your face.”
David adds, “It doesn’t have to be smooth anymore. A modern soft look with some soft texture, it can be a little bit messy, it’s more youthful that way.”
USE COLOR – Color Me Pretty
David Bamford, “Hair is styled to open up the face. Then using color we add some lightness around the face and then it tapers back down again.
VOLUME – Pump up the Volume.
“Use your hands to push it out. It’s about creating nice hills and valleys. Sometimes, with a little bit of teasing or just using your hands, you can create a look.
“The next time you have your photo taken you just want to push it up and push around your face a little more make it wider around the eyes.”
THE RIGHT CUT
David Bamford, “The secret to any beautiful hairdo is an amazing haircut. You want to go to someone who you have a good communication with, someone who has the has the same vision. It’s like when you go to the dentist and you don’t say ‘pull my teeth out’. You want a stylist who can say actually no, we are going to do this for you… this is what is best for you and trust their skill level.”
