ISO on Televsion
ISO Texture Specialist Francie Sorem recently appeared on Atlanta's popular Meet the Products TV show. One lucky Atlanta native named Katie received a complete ISO hair makeover that covered all five elements of ISO's i.system methodology of design—consultation, cut, straightening, texture, color and finish.
Sorem cut Katie's long, one-length hair into soft layers and a modern wispy fringe. She first used the ISO Maintamer texture system to smooth her naturally curly hair, leaving it smooth and shiny. She then added warm bronze highlights to the fringe and front side areas using shades from i.color's Bronzed Goddess Shade Collection. She completed the look using styling products from ISO's Tamer and Daily styling collections. "The key objective with every makeover should be to create a look that enhances that person's individual appearance and requires minimal upkeep," says Sorem.
