As you all know we held a very special competition last week, in conjunction with our fashion show at Jesmond Dene House,for one of you to win a £500 makeover with us at Love Niche, Sabai hairdressers and Charlotte makeup artist. We were taken aback by how many of you entered (we wish we could pick you all!) but the lucky lady who got picked out of the box was Judy Sherburn!
On the day of the fashion show we invited Judy to come into the studio for her styling session with Nisha. During the style session Nisha was able to put Judy in looks that were perfect for her body shape. Judy’s got very petite yet angular shoulders, a slender waist, with her thighs/hips being the largest part of her body, meaning that she would be classed as a triangle (read our style tip on triangle body shape here!). When styling you always try and create an hourglass figure. With Judy we had to balance out her shoulders to match her lower body. To do this we gave her dresses with shoulder pads or exaggerated shoulders to give the illusion of her shoulders being broader. With her having a slim waist we wanted to show that off, so we picked out dresses that either had a belt attached or had waist detail as to draw your eye in.
When picking Judy’s outfit we also had to look at her skintone, and see what colours would warm her and make her look more youthful with her colourings. We would put her in deep jewel colours such as emerald greens, rich deep reds, soft berry colours, and charcoal rather than black, nothing too bright and harsh.
Before her makeover (as you can see below) Judy had very ashy blonde hair, but Sabai softened it to give her more warmth and gave her a very sleek cut with an elongated bob so her hair went from bland to being stylish again. On the evening they curled her hair with a ghd which gave it volume. In the ‘after’ photo Judy look’s glowing!
Judy loved her makeover, and so do we! What do you think of her transformation?!
