I was recently invited to partner up with Clairol to Shift a Shade and amp-up my beauty and style routine. Always up for a challenge, I jumped at the opportunity to work with Clairol to overhaul my hair, makeup, and style.
I flew by myself (for the first time ever!) to Toronto and started my exciting day of hair, beauty and style renewal at Hair on the Avenue.
My day with Clairol began with a quick consultation on my hopes for my makeup and hair, which was accompanied by some tasty coffee and treats.
After that, we dived right into the hair process. As you can see in the video, I was looking for a lower-maintenance look, something that would require fewer root touch-ups and would overall just be healthier for my hair.
Luis recommended a natural ombre with golden tones in it, which is exactly what I was hoping for.
Immediately after getting my hair done, I was delighted to find how silky smooth it felt and how amazingly shiny it looked.
I love my richer and more golden hair colour; it was exactly the sort of update my look needed! If, like me, you’re in need of a little refresh, join me and #ShiftaShade with Clairol Nice and Easy!

UPDATED BEAUTY ROUTINE:
After hair, I jumped right into beauty with Patrick. I’m always concerned about looking tired; my 5AM wake-up call definitely leaves me looking a little drowsy during the day, so I am always on the lookout for a makeup routine that will remedy this.
I was shown how to use lighter, champagne-toned colours, as they are a great way to brighten up your eyes and look more refreshed.
LET’S TALK WARDROBE
My day finished off with wardrobe, where I shared one of my biggest concerns: looking frumpy when layered-up. Alexandra shared with me that the trick to layering is all about choosing thinner layers, rather than heavier fabrics, to create a more streamlined look.
As you can see, Alexandra created a perfectly layered-up look that achieves that clean and effortless appearance that I was hoping for!
