Texture Transformation


Texture Transformation

Normally, when you envision a major hair transformation, something along the lines of a Level 1 to platinum blonde, a cut and color that instantly take 10 years off or waist-length hair chopped into a bob comes to mind. But this curl set makeover is proof that texture can have just as much of an impact.


Kelli Mason (@kelliannmason), owner of Lux The Salon in Midland, Mich., is the stylist behind these #dreamcurls, and she gave us the rundown on how she achieved this incredible makeover!
