This process included every hair in a foil! Majority highlights, some lowlights, to bring dimension back to her hair. Without depth, there is no light! 🌓 We also opted for more of a bright, “baby” blonde tone. The idea was tossed around to do “ash” but we decided to keep MAX brightness we were okay with some warmth.☀️ _____________________________________________________

FOR THE STYLISTS: *** shoutout to @kwhair_ who allowed me to pick her brain (as always!) for this transformation 💕
.
.
✨PROCESS: split hair into 4 quadrants as well as a half moon shaped zone at her crown to connect the back 2 zones. Full head of teasylights, alternating 1 weave with one slice. On every hair dropped out of the foil, I lowlighted. Once rinsing I used @malibucpro Un-Do-Goo to remove buildup. .
.
✨PRE-TONE: my favvvv- Fanola No Yellow Shampoo.
.
.
✨FORMULA: Schwarzkopf Blondme starting with 7vol working up to 25vol mixed just less than 1:2. On her fragile ends that were already blonde, I used 7vol blondme mixed just more than 1:2. LOWLIGHT: Schwarzkopf Vibrance 8-19 + 6vol 1:1.
.
.
✨TONE: 20g 9,5-1 + 20g 9,5-19 + 4g 0-55 + 6vol 1:1 for 9mins:
.
.
✨TOOLS/ STYLE: @framar foils, brushes and balayage board. @trussprofessional Deluxe Prime to detangle as well as my @tangleteezer after rinsing. We did a dry cut and trimmed about 2” off to freshen to her ends, with long layers and facial shaping. @love_amika Velveteen Dream and Brooklyn Bombshell spray to blowout. .

In my opinion, dimension, warmth, and tone-on-tone colors create the most gorgeous, believable brunette. 💕 This is great for brunettes who are loving their natural color, but want to enhance it!

This color was the final stop on a roadmap I had created for my client, that we followed to a T. 💜 It was important to me that yes, I get her lighter which is what she wanted.. but I also kept her hair in the healthiest condition possible through it all. I was always honest and very open about what was possible for us to achieve in each session. End result? Healthy, beautiful blonde lob!🙌🏽 _____________________________________________________

✨PROCESS: (previous session had been babylights and a root melt which we LOVED how it grew out..) This time I did a full surface paint to really give the ends some pop. .

Each color and cut is customized to what best suits your skin, face shape, and eye color, as well as your desired maintenance level, how you style, etc. Each time you are in my chair I will re-assess, re-evaluate, and create a look that is best fitting to you!😌👍🏽 _____________________________________________________

I love this type of melt/blend because it shows the true contrast between the base and the brightness at the ends. Blends and dimension like this are built on sessions.🕒 _____________________________________________________

✨PROCESS: Teasylights in a bricklay, all weaves around the hairline and alternating weaves and slices through everywhere else. .

Which technique do you think I used here⁉️ A) Hand painting/ balayage

B) Babylights •

If you guessed babylights you are CORRECT! Just because her highlights go directly to her root does not mean they have to be harsh or “old school”. Babylights are very tiny highlights (but TONS packed in there) which grow out very soft! Between each foil is a little bit of your natural color which allows for dimension, and helps blend the regrowth🌱. My babylight clients can typically go anywhere from 9-12 weeks between appointments (depending how anal they are about having roots.😅) _____________________________________________________

FOR THE STYLISTS:
.
.
✨PROCESS: 4 zones + a Mohawk section, babylighting all the way up the head on a slight diagonal. Weaves everywhere except the Mohawk had some tiny slices. .
.
✨PRETONE: my favourite purple shampoo: @fanola No Yellow💜 for about 5mins.
.
.
✨FORMULA: Schwarzkopf Blondme bleach, starting with 7vol, 7+20vol, 20vol, then 25vol mixed just less than 1:2.
.
.
✨TONE: Schwarzkopf Igora Vibrance 9,5-1 + 6vol for 5mins. .
.
✨TOOLS/ STYLE: @framar foils and classic brush to apply. Amika Velveteen Dream smoothing balm and Brooklyn Bombshell Blowout Spray before blow drying. Curled with @babylissprousa 1 1/4” iron, alternating directions for maximum texture.

Adding depth allows blonde to POP. Yup, you heard me. She started out with a lot of bleachy-looking blonde ends and very little depth. There was minimal lightening in this transformation, just a lot of tone shifting, color balancing, and placement adjusting. 🤓 A few pieces were brightened/placement was changed but that is about it! The power of contrast!💪🏽 _____________________________________________________

✨PROCESS: Colormelt/lowlight feathering into her natural base, as well as a champagne-toned lowlight, painted a few panels with clay lightener & toned at the sink with a light golden blonde.

TeasyLITTTT. Stylists: do you use teasylights often? Or other methods? 🤔 • #alchemyxartistry #alexkennedyhair #btconeshot19_coolbalayage #btconeshot19_curls

Teasylights is the technique I choose most often when trying to get maximum lift with a lived-in result. It is the closest thing to “balayage” but avoids as much warmth as possible by insulation in a foil! 👍🏽 _____________________________________________________
