Heading into her third decade, Cincy Chic makeover winner Megan Blunt needed a fresh look. Or at least her sister thought so when she nominated Blunt for the makeover.
"I was stunned that she had entered me but was excited to be selected for the experience," Blunt says. So she headed to Tuscany Spa-Salon for a day of transformation.
For her new look, Blunt chartered into unexplored territory with a color treatment for her hair. "I was really nervous to color my hair since I had never done that before, but [the Tuscany staff] put me at ease and promised that it wouldn’t be too drastic — just a fresher look," Blunt says.
Tuscany stylist Tammy Fitterer guided Blunt into that unexplored territory. "I decided to take her hair color one level darker and added a nice, rich brown to it in order to warm up and deepen her natural color," Fitterer says. "I put a caramel highlight throughout the top portion of her hair just to brighten up her face."
Beyond the brightening, Fitterer framed Blunt’s face with a side-swept bang and shorter layers. She also cut about four inches off Blunt’s hair to give her a shorter ‘do.
"They definitely turned this ‘hair color virgin’ into a believer!" Blunt says. "I think I’m hooked!"
Blunt also met with aesthetician Lynsey Morrison for a lip wax, makeup application and eyebrow touchup. (Blunt had recently had her eyebrows waxed.) "I tweezed what needed cleaned up that had grown in since her waxing and trimmed the length of her brows for a more cleaned up look," Morrison says.
And the makeup application provided a more dramatic look for Blunt, as she doesn’t wear much makeup on a daily basis. "We did a heavier makeup application with eyeliner and more eye shadow," Morrison says.
After all of her services, what was her favorite part of the day? "The best part of the makeover experience was the wonderful staff at Tuscany Salon," Blunt says. "They made me feel very relaxed and I think we all had fun together."
