After smoothing Kim’s hair with the Copolla Smoothing System we enriched her natural color with panels of red violet. During the photo shoot we added a creative twist by placing a temporary hair extension piece into her updo to give her the couture runway look!
Utilizing Tigi’s cosmetics, Danielle over dramatized Kim’s eyes in order to achieve a high glam runway look. We bronzed Kim’s body with Tigi’s Bronzing
Powder for a reflective look under the bright lights.
1. Before meeting the DK STYLE team, how would you best describes your style?
I think I’ve always had a good sense of style. I’ve always tried to keep up on the latest trends. My style was definitely NOT the high fashion couture style that DK Style Extreme Makeovers turned me into, but WOW was that fun! It’s amazing how being completely transformed feels.
2. Tell us about your last haircut?
My latest haircut was by Danielle Keasling of course! I wouldn’t have anyone else cut my hair. It’s funny, when you are gone for 14 months and you miss your hair stylist for that long and no one can replace her, you know you also consider her to be a friend. Danielle has always given me the best cut and style.
3. You “wear” your hair every day—how do you feel about your new style?
Okay. This is a trick question right?—LOL. Well, the new style was crazy, wild and my hair was definitely transformed into “runway hair.” I don’t think I could go to work this way; I probably wouldn’t go to my children’s school that way (although I’d probably be a hit with the kids and my purple hair). I don’t know how it would fly going to the park with my 16-month-old… BUT, I did go out with my husband the night of the photo shoot with my new style (orchids in my hair and all), got lots of “stares,” and lots of compliments AND really wished we were in a high-profile club in New York City.
4. After your visits with our skin specialist, Tavia, how did you feel?
Tavia is AWESOME. I felt absolutely pampered! She has this great sense of calm and peace about her, and she is super sweet. She made the whole experience so relaxing… I didn’t want to leave. I am definitely going back to see her.
5. Describe your manicure and pedicure experience with Nikki?
Yay, I’ve found my nail girl! My appointment with Nikki was so fun and also relaxing! She has a great personality and is super professional and very meticulous (I think that is hard to find these days). She took her time and she is definitely an artist!
6. Lights. Camera. Pose! What was it like for you starring in a professional photo shoot?
Starring in a shoot like this was crazy fun! It gave me a whole new outlook on the fashion industry and the work that it entails. It’s not as easy as I thought it would be (but that may have also had something to do with the rock wall and waterfall). I also felt very privileged to wear the Vera Wang dress. Anne is an awesome photographer. She’s also a really fun person. She’s one of those people that you can’t help but smile at, so it’s hard not to smile at her while she’s telling you how to look at the camera with a serious pout on your face. I really feel this was a once-in-a-lifetime experience with very professional people.
I have to say the DK Style Team members are “artists” and have such passion for their work. I told them they should take this whole thing on the road—something like “Where in the World is DK Style.” I think it would be so successful.
7. You’ve been Styled! What do other winners have to look forward to?
Winners should look forward to being treated like a princess and being completely transformed. Also, the theme of the shoot! These girls absolutely make the theme come alive; it’s amazing and it’s so cool that you actually get to be a part of it.
