Back in February I had the opportunity to participate in @bioionic Zodiac-Inspired campaign! I used the Powerlight Dryer as well as my One Pass flat iron to create this fun, flirty, disheveled braid. Thank you Bio Ionic for including me in this project. 💕 #SHADESOFBIOIONIC.

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! 👍🏽 _____________________________________________________

✨PROCESS: Teasylights, weaves and slices in a bricklay pattern.

This was my first time doing this sweetheart’s hair & it was so fun! She is naturally quite light, and her previous color actually grew out amazing (shout-out to whichever colorist did that😂) She did, however need a bit of brightening and wanted to transition from a grown-out highlight look to more of a balayage, so we did just that! 🙌🏽 _____________________________________________________

Mariya is such a fricken rockstar! She drives 4 hours to come see me in Toronto from Rochester, NY. The first day I ever corrected her color we just CLICKED! 👯‍♀️ We love the same music, have a similar mindset & she’s just all around a high vibe girl. (My kinda person!) When I told her I was trying a technique on her that I’ve never done before, her response was “do you, I trust you.” Like does it get any better?! We were both in love with how natural the end result was.💕 _____________________________________________________

FOR THE STYLISTS:

✨PROCESS: AIRTOUCH technique using a @parluxcanada blowdryer. Separated into quadrants based on where she parts her hair. I did babylights around her hairline as well. Finished with a root melt & beige toner. My sections were about 3/4” thick, and I alternated diagonal and horizontal sections. .
.
✨PRETONE: my favourite @fanola No Yellow💜.
.
.
✨FORMULA: Schwarzkopf Vario bleach starting with 15vol working my way up to 30vol mixed just less than 1:2.
.

✨TONE: Shadow: Schwarzkopf Igora Vibrance equal parts 6-12 + 6-0 + 6vol 10mins. For the last 10mins pull through Vibrance 5g 9,5-5 and 25g 9,5-4 +6vol.
.
.
✨TOOLS/ STYLE: @framar foils and classic brush to apply. @Fanola Nutricare spray to detangle as well as @fanola Zaffiro Puro Radiating Fluid for extra shine & strength. @amika Velveteen Dream smoothing balm and Brooklyn Bombshell Blowout Spray before blow drying.

Fanola? More like FANO-LOVE 💜 Alongside their no-yellow line, these 2 products are my Holy Grail right now. READ BELOW FOR KEY FEATURES OF EACH! ⬇️

This gem helps to repair damage as well as neutralize yellow tones. It is enriched with Argan and Sweet Cypress oil, and helps to protect against free radicals and everyday elements such as sun🌞 and wind.💨 STEP 1: apply a few drops in your hands and work through either damp or dry hair. STEP 2: be amazed at how shiny, soft, and build-up-free your locks are.

With 10 different benefits, this pre-styling spray is a no-brainer.🧠 A few of my favourite features include: eliminates frizz, speeds up drying time, and DETANGLING! 🙌🏽 It is enriched with Milk Proteins and Argan Oil. TO USE: spray into damp hair before styling, or spray into hands and work into dry hair to smooth down fuzzies/add shine.

Drop a thumbs up 👍🏽 emoji if you LOVE this platinum blonde lob! •

This blonde babe is actually a natural blonde⭐️. This means it is much more achievable to get this platinum tone than it would be on someone who is medium brown or darker! We added some shape with her cut and gave her a tousled beach wave to compliment the whole look.

Ok I officially am in LOVE with warm tones & dimension. Her skin was literally glowing when we were done. Warm doesn’t have to mean brassy and often times it is much more suitable than ash tones! It also will last longer as you are not trying to FIGHT the warmth once the color starts to fade! Do not fear the warmth!☄️ _____________________________________________________

FOR THE STYLISTS:
.
.
✨PROCESS: teasylight weaves in 4 zones up the head, then colormelt.
.
.
✨PRETONE: my favourite @fanola No orange 🔵 to ensure that we are kicking brass and aiming for a CONTROLLED warmth.

✨FORMULA: Schwarzkopf Blondme bleach, starting with 20vol, 25vol, 30vol mixed just less than 1:2.

✨TONE: Shadow: Schwarzkopf Igora Vibrance 5-00 + 6vol for 10mins. For the last 10mins pull through Vibrance 10g 7-4 + 10g 7-65 + 20g 9,5-46 +6vol for another 8 mins.

✨TOOLS/ STYLE: @framar foils and classic brush to apply. @Fanola Nutricare spray to detangle. @amika Velveteen Dream smoothing balm and Brooklyn Bombshell Blowout Spray before blow drying. Curled with @babylissprousa 1 1/4” iron, all going away from the face.
