Master the Gemini Icon Look with Kim Vo
Creating customized colors that are unique and long lasting is a secret weapon in the industry!
Kim Vo, Hollywood Celebrity Stylist, Co-host of The Look and Schwarzkopf Professional Global BLONDME® Ambassador learned this early in his career. Whether in Hollywood or your hometown, clients want to have a signature look that only you can create that represents their personal style. Kim uses multiple techniques throughout the color placement with his clients that create a seamless overall look.
One of our favorite looks is the GEMINI ICON, as Kim says, “Twice the blonde is twice the fun!”
His color placement begins in the nape area with delicately weaved highlights with BLONDME Premium Lightener 9+ to lift and lighten so when completed, the technique creates waves of light and bright color throughout the hair. As he continues, he places the delicate highlights technique towards the hairline and around the face, his signature technique is placing illuminating face framers, because Kim knows that, “This is what the client sees all the time and it is your money maker piece!”
After completing his first application, Kim then applies BLONDME Blonde Lifting ASH to midlengths and ends on the remaining hair for 15 minutes. This color placement will create a gorgeous contrast against the waves of lightened hair for a customized look. Lastly, Kim applies the BLONDME Lifting ASH formula to the re-growth area for depth. Process for 45 minutes.
The finished color is seamless with customized contrasting shades that illuminate the face.
To keep his clients always looking their best with the brightest blondes, Kim recommends that his GEMINI ICON clients use Schwarzkopf Professional BLONDME - Keratin Restore Bonding Shampoo - All Blondes and BLONDME - Keratin Restore Bonding Mask - All Blondes.
