Blonde Envy

Blonde 101:
Placement and timing, lifting vs. depositing all place a major role in color. The same formulation on one clients does not equal the same results on another. I have noticed if you want that beige or wheat blonde, it is easier to achieve this look when depositing on bleach blondes because you have to work for your warmth.;) When adding depth and dimension to a bleach blonde I usually recommend a soft base bump (don’t over bump). A lot of times I bump the base with the same level they already are, this just gives it a softer appearance. Step out of your comfort zone of the traditional level 8 base. When lifting hair it will always pull warm, therefor you have to tone…. why do we always reach for the 9V?? Does this really do much? Try a 7 to tone, this will give you that wheat or beige appearance. Almost every time I finish a color I then free hand random pieces. This is where the timing plays a big role, bleach left on only for a couple minutes can give the ends shine. A semi permanent painted for that last few minutes can tone. It’s  about creating BALANCE in your colors.

This client/NBR specialist came in from Maine to shadow and learn Natural Beaded Rows with me. I have been getting stylist from all over the country that want to implement NBR. I will soon be offering one class a month. My shadowing and class,  includes my online education. Follow up is huge when learning a new technique. With the online education you will be able to go back at any time when you have questions or concerns and review a video. Most clients to do a full set is just over an hour(with color 3 hours)! NBR is faster with less damage, which is a great solution for the the stylist and the client. They also hide great (watch some my youtube videos on how I pull it up or braid). Oh and the removal process takes 5 minutes. CLICK my #1 secret box for more information.  

Here is some more more from this past week…
