We featured Italian mama Bianca Teti and Z Hairdressing in the November 2014 issue of beijingkids Indulge makeover series. Teti, who is a senior consultant at Eriksson, and her French husband Jean-Christophe Laneri live at Chaoyang Park with their son Samuel (7 months). Unfortunately back in November, Scarlet Salmons, creative director at Z Hairdressing ruled that pregnancy, pollution, and Beijing’s dry air and hard water had wreaked too much damage on Teti’s hair, and warned that until the condition had improved sufficiently, no further color could be applied.
Following some months applying nourishing blended natural oils, Teti’s curls are finally ready for some dye. “We are always careful with the products we use,” says Salmons. “Bianca’s hair is still prone to dryness and frizz, so we are using a conditioning color, with no ammonia and additional oils to minimize damage.”
After a short consultation, Senior Colorist Phoebe applies deep brunette root color, with slices of chocolate and ruby red. “I want a cool color, that is still OK for business,” says Teti. The placement of color employs new techniques learned from the Toni & Guy Academy in London, and creates a reversible look, with hidden vibrant red when the hair is worn up, or a more corporate-friendly dark chocolate when the hair is loose. Teti is pleased with the final look. “It’s a classic restyle, and the two colors give a cool effect.”
Z Hairdressing is offering readers 50 percent off on their first haircut and 20 percent off on color when they mention beijingkids.
