New Year Makeover Looks

There’s no better time than the start of a new year to go for a brand new ‘do! With help from the pros at Louis Licari salon in NYC, updated two readers’ looks. You can refresh yours too with some subtle changes–Snag some inspiration here!

Readers (and sisters) Sofia, 22, and Leilah, 15, were tired of their same old hair and ready for a change. They turned to to help give them an update. So, we enlisted the services of hairstylists and colorists from Louis Licari salon in New York City, where the masters worked their magic.

Colorist, Erika Szabo enhanced Leilah’s hair by removing the orange tint and adding a rich, gorgeous brown color in a single-process. The lush hue complemented her olive skin tone and made her deep brown eyes pop. Sofia wanted an ombré look that was subtle. Erika created a sophisticated twist on the style by adding highlights rather than dip dyeing her ends. She also got rid of the reddish undertones in Sofia’s hair by returning it to its dark brown roots for a more natural look overall.

Stylist Breno Miranda was the creative force behind the girls’ cuts. Since Leilah’s hair was a bit over processed, Breno took five inches off the length and gave her young, funky layers to go with her new darker color. Sofia had heavy layers that added unnecessary weight to her hair. Breno trimmed the ends and took the weight out of her hair with a simple cut.

You don’t need to completely overhaul your hair to look fresh and pretty. Both girls were completely renewed with just a few minor changes! For more hair-spiration, you needn’t go far: Check out our story on the best celebrity hair transformations of 2012.
