Magical Makeover

If you’re looking for a little inspiration and a gorgeous upsweep for a special occasion, let IT&LY Hairfashion help you!


This fabulous makeover was designed by Pasquale Caselle, International Creative Director of IT&LY Hairfashion. He began the transformation by first creating the perfect haircolor for his model, Alina. According to Pasquale, “At the moment I met Alina, her dark eyes popped while her existing hair color masked her olive complexion.” Pasquale wanted to create a Mediterranean look by changing her haircolor to a rich espresso hue. For successful haircolor makeovers, Pasquale recommends keeping your eye and skin tone into consideration as these are two key elements for figuring out your perfect shade.

It was then onto a style befitting of Aphrodite herself. Prior to blow-drying with a large round brush, Pasquale applied a small amount of IT&LY Hairfashion Pure Water Drops for shine, and Pure Style Mousse Extra Strong for lift and volume. Next, he backcombed the hair, leaving the ends free and loose. He then brought all the hair up into a textured up-do, securing with bobby pins. The top was smoothed with his fingers to create additional texture and height. To finish, he sprayed the coif with Pure Definition Hair Spray and and added a gold band for accent.
Gorgeous! Are you inspired yet?
