It’s that time of year where it gets dark so early that you have no choice but to rely on a ring light.i prefer to take my pictures in natural light with a professional camera.
there are some tricks i’ve learned when it comes to ring lights and photography, i’ll be sharing them at my class with @isaac4mayor and @hairbyelm on february 3rd @radarsalon

🔈full disclosure - platinum blonde
leave questions below and i will do my best to answer them
in my opinion, platinum blonde has become the chase color. so many want it but don’t know exactly what they’re signing up for.
platinum blonde is time consuming. this is not a quick 1-2 hour appointment, think more like 3-5 hours. fortunately, theres an abundance of banter at my salon so it’s generally not too boring of an experience.
there are times when it takes a couple visits, maybe more, to get you to hair goal color. if you have previous hair color or low lights those pieces likely will not lift the same as your v****n hair
i always recommend using a bond builder or a product with a bond builder built in. i personally use @brazilianbondbuilder if your stylist is using these products they are literally mitigating damage and taking extra good care of your hair.
i also recommend using a good hair mask, i love @redken all soft mask and brushing with a @thewetbrush your hair is the most fragile and susceptible to breaking from improper brushing while wet.
appointments should be no further than maximum 8 weeks apart. any further between appointments is technically a color correction and will definitely leave you with unwanted banding.
keep heat to a minimum. your hair is now comprised and heat will only further the compromise.
lastly, find a stylist who is very comfortable with this type of service. don’t expect this service to be the same price as a regular root touch up. on average it takes me 1 hour to apply lightener to only the roots, it takes even longer for the entire head. #ittakesapro#saloncentricambassador
Highs & lows ⬆️⬇️ converting this b**e from a solid bleach and tone back to a more dimensional look.
placement is key when you have a solid like you are trying to break up.
remember the low lights make the highlights look lighter and brighter.
seriously so thankful that warmer tones are back in fashion ✨
we can almost throw away our purple shampoos 😆

Feel free to tag a friend who supports your success and read below. 📢 my advice to anyone, especially those just starting out in their career, is to surround yourself with the people who love and support your successes. surround yourself with people who cheer you on and want to be a part of your journey. often times, there is a lot of failure between successes, find friends who share your losses and your wins equally. fair weather friends are easy to find. **weed out the people who overtly or subtly put you down. **
i am blessed to have amazing people around me who have quite literally pushed me to be successful 1️⃣ starting with my family and these amazing friends @sadiejcre8s , @hairbyelm, @danielmasonjones, @danielmbeauty , @raylorojohair, @saloncentric @modernsalon, @hotonbeauty@butterflyloftsalon , @melanieevehair , @beautybymissruby
