Celebrity Colorist Shah Karegar uses the Uberliss Bond Treatment to color and prep Irina Shayk and Barbara Fialho for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in Paris
Aside from lingerie and leggy babes, the most important part of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is all of the different beauty looks. The fresh face makeup, glowy skin, and that amazing, forever iconic, glossy hair. However, getting and keeping that glossy color fresh is no easy feat, which is why Shah Karegar used the Uberliss Bond Treatment to gloss, color, and refresh both Irina Shayk and Barbara Fialho for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in Paris.
The Uberliss Bond Treatment is an additive to color, lightener, glosses and toners, and keeps hair significantly stronger during any hair processes. It’s quickly becoming a stylist favorite in the market. We asked Shah his thoughts on the treatment and how he used it on each girl:
How did you use the Uberliss Bond Treatment on Irina Shayk? (Color, highlights, gloss, treatment?)
Irina is an all natural beauty. Less is always more with her. I don't use any permanent colors on her hair, she loves rocking that all natural look. However, I decided to run some low lights using all vegetable colors and the Uberliss Bond Treatment to give her that striking brunette look by adding dark dimension for the Victoria’s Secret Show.
I mixed my vegetable color to my consistency then added 1/8 oz of the Uberliss Bond Regenerator into the gloss and left it on for 15 min. Then I used a clear shine followed with the Uberliss Bond Shampoo and Uberliss Bond Amplifier for 20 minutes, leaving her hair shiny and strong and very durable.
How did you use the Uberliss Bond Treatment on Barbara Fialho? (Color, highlights, gloss, treatment?)
Barbara Fialho, The Brazilian Goddess has been rocking the natural brunette look for many years during her modeling career, but this year I wanted to do something different and striking for the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in Paris. I wanted the color to make a statement, therefore I decided to balayage her and blonde her up without damaging her hair, and still keep it shiny and strong by adding the Uberliss Bond Treatment to my color process.
Barbara works and travels a lot, sometimes her hair can get really dry from all the styling and also the water changes in different countries, therefore I try not to process her hair even more with color and highlights. What I love about the Uberliss Bond Treatment is that it allows me to take her color to the next level without damaging the hair. The way I used the treatment was that I mixed my lightener to my regular consistency, then I added 1/8 oz of the Uberliss Bond Regenerator into my lightener. I balayage (hand painted) the lightener on all the specific areas that I wanted to lighten up, then I used heat for about 10 min. I followed up with the Uberliss Bond Shampoo and after used the Uberliss Bond Amplifier. I left on the Amplifier for 20 minutes. What I love about the Uberliss Bond Amplifier is that it leaves the hair looking like it's never been lightened before.
What are your thoughts on the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show hair wise? How important is healthy, shiny, hair for these girls? Do you think Uberliss helped to achieve that?
I think a lot of the supermodels work and travel a lot and it's very important not to over-process their hair with color and lightener due to all the styling and traveling they do. What I love about the Uberliss Bond Treatment is that it allows you to play with color a little bit more than usual. But one of my favorite products has to be the Uberliss Bond Amplifier, it retains the hair strength and integrity during color processes and lighteners. And I always make them leave with the Uberliss Bond Sustainer so they can reapply at home at least twice a week.
