Hairstyles How To: Taryn Manning's Rich Brunette by Beth Minardi

Recently, beauty industry icon Beth Minardi gave actress Taryn Manning, star of the hit show Orange is the New Black, a gorgeous hair makeover at the Mark Garrison Salon in New York City. Minardi used new gloss shades from her 2014 color line in order to achieve beautiful, commitment-free color that enhances shine and works to strengthen hair. The temporary color lasts for 8-10 weeks before fading completely, offering a unique way for clients to try out new shades and change up their look frequently without over-processing strands.  

Says Minardi, “I prefer to enliven brunettes by creating dimension with lowlights using an opaque Demi Creme color. Blending and weaving in punctuation marks of rich colors gives brunette hues movement [and] texture. Dimensional hair color is so much more visually interesting than covering hair with one shade of color. Beth Minardi Signature Demi Creme color contains a perfect blend of conditioning agents, leaving the hair shiny, pliable and strong. [For] Taryn, I wove shades of 'Cinnamon Toast' and 'Bamboo' throughout her medium brunette base. I wanted to articulate sensuality and sophistication with velvety brunette tones. I then applied a glaze of Beth Minardi Signature Demi Liquid 'Buttercream' and 'Sunflower' to infuse the hair with a warm, radiant glow. This is a modern way to fashion alluring, bombshell brunettes.”

Minardi then shampooed the actress's hair with Minardi Luxury Color Care Wash System 1: Weightless and conditioned with Weightless After Wash for color and volume support.

After the makeover, Manning hosted an intimate dinner party at The Lion restaurant in New York City in honor of Minardi, where she showed off her brand new look.
