In April 2007 Ken and his stellar Paves Salon team opened their doors to six lucky Celebrity Makeover winners who had been selected by Multi Media International (MMI) for the opportunity to transform into versions of their celebrity idols.

Winner Kelsey specifically wanted to be transformed into a version of the lovely Julianne Moore. As part of her celebrity makeover process Kelsey received an initial consultation for hair color and style with Team Paves at the Beverly Hills Salon.

The celebrity make-up artists with Benefit Cosmetics were also on hand along with the MMI photographer to record Kelsey's step-by-step transformation into a bona fide celebrity look-a-like.

Julianne Moore

Julianne Moore is famous for her tousled long red tresses which have run the gamut from cherry red to her current trendy copper with hints of warm peek-a-boo peach.

The Emmy winning actress who started her career in the Soaps on The Edge of Night and as Frannie Hughes on As The World Turns has amassed an impressive body of work which has been nominated for three Oscars.

Celebrity Makeover Magic

At first glance it's obvious why Model Kelsey (shown to the side) wanted her celebrity makeover at the famous Ken Paves Beverly Hills Salon to transform her into fabulous version of famous Hollywood redhead Julianne Moore.

Kelsey has some features that are similar to Julianne's including an oval shaped face, a similar rounded chin and rich auburn hued tresses. Kelsey's shade of red is lighter and more cherry than Julianne's current coppery blend.

Getting Started Notes

Kelsey arrived for her makeover with her medium fine auburn red

tresses swept completely off to the side of her face originating from a deep side part. Her strands extended several inches below your shoulders.

Even though her hair is fine, she has lots of tress density.


Celebrity hairdresser Riawna Capri (at Ken Paves Beverly Hills Salon in California - (310) 499-7122) set about reshaping Kelsey's tresses and opening up her face by skillfully carving some face framing layers around the hairline.

Riawna also trimmed slightly around the edges of Kelsey's hair to make sure that all of the ends blended well.

She carefully shaped the frontal fringe which works beautifully with Kelsey's face shape, eye and skin tone.

Starting with Kelsey's pre-existing auburn hair as the natural base color Riawna wove in a series of lighter and darker dimensional hues being careful to avoid damaging Kelsey's existing hair. Her goal was to keep the majority of Kelsey's original color but adding richness and movement with contrasting and complementary hues.


To maximize the beauty of Kelsey’s newly created highlights and lowlights, Riawna washed her hair with a color enhancing Kerastase shampoo that would protect and showcase the gorgeous new hues.

She coated Kelsey’s freshly washed and towel dried strands with Kerastase Mousse Nutri-Script.

After letting her freshly washed tresses air dry for a few minutes to remove excess moisture, Riawna used a blow dryer and a round boar's bristle brush and dried Kelsey's hair.

Separating Kelsey's hair into individual sections, she used the round brush to build in extra volume and body all along the crown.

Once Kelsey's hair was completely dry Riawna separated her strands into individual sections. She spritzed each section with Kerastase Double Force before wrapping the strands around a medium barrel curling iron.

Her goal was to create soft sexy curls throughout Kelsey's strands.

After releasing the newly curled strand from the curling iron, Riawna used her fingers and clipped the newly formed curl against Kelsey's scalp to cool and set.

Adding HairDo Hair Extensions

Once Kelsey's hair was completely cool and set, but still clipped into place, Riawna released the bottom curls. She created a part just below the crown which extended vertically from temple to temple . She twisted the bottom strands of the hair into a secure bun.

Riawna then added a 23" long and wavy synthetic hair extension from the HairDo Collection attaching it at the newly created part. The clip-in extension is part of the fabulous collection which was designed by Ken Paves and Jessica Simpson.

After the color matched hair extension piece was clipped into Kelsey's hair Riawna released the remaining clips allowed the new curls to cascade down over the top of the piece.

Picking up a few pieces of hair, she lightly backcombed to completely cover the hair line where the extension was clipped into place. She then used her fingers to carefully arrange and finish Kelsey's style.

Note: The Synthetic HairDo™ Clip-in Extension Systems are available in a variety of color levels. These extensions have been specially processed so that they hold the gorgeous waves. The entire HairDo line is available at

All HairDo™ Clip-in Extension Systems consist of one multi-level, contoured piece that creates an easy, fashionable style without the hassle of working with several individual wefts. Affordable, lightweight and easy to attach, these virtually undetectable extensions can be put in and taken out in a matter of minutes.


Once Riawna was finished creating a masterpiece of style and color the celebrity makeup artist from Benefit Cosmetics applied a beautiful palette of hues to compliment Kelsey's sensual new look.

Pairing rich raspberry with voluminous waves was the perfect plan for creating Kelsey's sexy makeover style.

Long lush locks the allow the raspberry hues to mix together look wonderful when worn free-flowing with just a hint of finger styling.

Kelsey’s pre-makeover side part has been softened and volume has been incorporated into the hair framing her beautiful face. The softer part and added fullness plays up loose waves.
