Crown Braids are my favorite💕

Spent the morning coming up with new tutorials and I thought I would share this one💕 some days I scroll Pinterest looking for ideas, and some days I just play with the hair and try new things and get creative. What do you guys think?

Let's talk 💕Rose Gold💕
To me, this color is pink. The lighting and background give it more of a bronze pink look in this photo.
So....if my client came in and asked me for rose gold and showed me this picture, would she be wrong?
Everyone seems to have a different interpretation of what rose gold is. Some are more bronze, some are more pink....but does it really matter? As long as your consultation covers your clients questions and concerns, you should both be happy with the final result. And clients if you are reading this.....just make sure to bring photos of what you are trying to achieve so you and your stylist can be on the same page with your desired results💕

I love to Balayage
A few questions I get asked about Balayage by stylists?
•What is your favorite Balayage lightener?
It depends on what I am trying to achieve, but one of my favorites to work with is @trionicshaircare KO blond •Do you tease to help with blending?
I personally don't with looks like this. It has taken a ton of trial and error and spotting and inconsistent applications to refine my techniques so if teasing helps you, then do it! Don't let anyone tell you you are doing anything wrong. Your way is no one else's way and their way is not your way. Figure out what works for you! •Do you do your base and Balayage together?
I prefer to work off the natural base. Luckily most of my clients have little to no gray. If they have some gray, I may just add a darker root shadow after I Balayage to blend the gray. However if they had gray and wanted it covered, I would do their root color separate from their Balayage application •Do you have a placement pattern?
I like to customize every Balayage so I don't follow a pattern. I have a general guideline, but I love working with what we start with and adding what needs to be added each appointment✨
Hope that helps and if you have any other questions.....I'm more than happy to help💛

What a babe😍 @k8isgrr8
Balayage never looked so good! Thank you for always trusting me with your hair😘

Sunkissed Balayage

There are a few different ways to tackle this. It depends on many variables. Here's one way....If there is an obvious line of demarcation, then it's necessary to add highs and lows. If this is the first time converting to Balayage, always use a semi or demi to add in the low lights. There will be some clients who just prefer the look of a traditional weave. This makes it easier to lift through instead of going through and lifting through permanent color. Then I like to use a combination of Balayage techniques (surface painting, slants, and singles) according to and utilizing the existing hilights, focusing around the face and the top layer. It's more of an art and feeling than it is pattern based when I transition clients to Balayage. Hope this was helpful and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask👇🏻
