Process— pre toned with shades eq to even out canvas and get rid of some spottiness and uneven tones. then i used @moroccanoil prime on the hair for protection 💪🏻 and painted with wella freelights w/35 vol 🎨 then i rinsed and used wella post service for 5 mins. then i toned out some blorange/golds followed by @olaplex (ps i’m dying to try the shampoo/conditioner!!) ❤️

Balayage or foilayage? i’ll give you a hint: it’s foilayage. trust your stylist to get you to your goals! balayage isn’t for everyone, especially if you have dark hair, (especially colored dark hair.) sometimes the level of brightness you’re wanting might call for foils!! ❤️ and that’s ok!! it’s the end result that matters, amirite?
The process of “marrying” :
when marrying the hair together it is all about what you are focusing on and the results you would like to achieve. this process can take anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes...all with it depending on how your clients midshaft to ends look(whether there’s product build up,hard water minerals or old toner). for this process, the key is to use your fingers and squeeze all existing lightener away from the root and dragging it down to the mids and ends...making sure they are saturated! continue blending each baby light together as you work up the head as well as carefully moving any lowlight out of the way. ***please keep the integrity of the hair in mind to know whether or not it can handle this process. #behindthechair#askforwella#wellapassionistas#wellaeducation#babylights#balayage#hairbyshannon#foilayage#wellaplex
Let’s break it downnnnnn! this isn’t a crazy color correction, more like something you guys deal with on a daily behind the chair! she wants iceeeeeee, so how can we guarantee that? fullllllllll highlights! like, full full, not kinda full, like full! i did a mixture of baby-lights and slices and had two mow-hawks that’s how full! then there is absolutely no way around it, we are toning in the chair and doing basically a single process color with extra application, product and processing time, oh yea and i have to use my brain 10 times more because we are correcting all kinds of tones, bands and craziness so no, i don’t feel bad charging for that. then a conditioning treatment is non negotiable if i’m pulling lightener through, sorry. then as always, we charge for a wash/cut and b**w dry. if you want the waves, and you want the photo, you pay for the waves. if you go to the grocery store and buy everything for guacamole, the cashier doesn’t throw in the tomatoes and cilantro, and if you skip it you just have mushed avocados 🥑 xo

Who ever said color had to look like color? enhancement refined. this technique works best for very fine hair but a lot of it on the head. from dark to light but very subtle. these clients have to really want to come back for a touch up because the blend is so subtle you could really stretch this way past 3 months. the ratio of hair stands lost per day you can start here and let it blend out to a subtle ombré.
This mama needed a little touch up after having a baby. 15 months without color. we decided no highlights this time and got into handpainting her whole head in foils. 4+ hours. @stemsalon @cbryant2015
