LET’S TALK: SATURATION
.

LEFT: lightest saturation level- you can still see strands through the product. This will result is a very subtle effect in your lifting process and is perfect for someone who wants 1-2 levels of lift.
.
.
RIGHT: Heaviest level of saturation. It’s completely white and you can see no strands through the product. This is ideal for someone who wants maximum lift. With clay Lightner, insulation, heavy saturation, and gentle heat, you can expect 3-5 levels of lift. (Dependent on the canvas)

It’s that’s time! @redken color gels/ SEQ formula BREAKDOWN!
.
Todays spotlight- GI series
.
Base= gold/violet
.
Gold= yellow +orange
Orange= red+yellow
.
Violet= red+ blue
.
GI= 4 warms + 1 cool.
.

On a level 9 yellow, the violet cancels out the yellow and you are left with a warm buttery finish.
.
Want a beige effect? Add 9v to your formula for an iridescent result.

Let’s talk DIMENSION.
.
It’s highly requested in the Salon, everyone wants DIMENSION!
.
Here are some things to keep in mind when consulting and painting.👇🏻
.
1.) Most clients bring in photos that are curled/beachy waves. It is important to have your guest understand that when the hair is curled, the interior depth flows though the surface and creates more dimension than if it was being worn straight.
.
2.) When you are formulating, try adding a deeper lowlight in zone 1-2, so it can balance well off of the highlights. You can mix a lighter lowlight formulation for zone 3 so it maintains brightness on the ends of the hair.
.
3.) Keep in mind where you are placing your light and shadow. Over painting is a large problem for a lot of artists. Maintaining depth on the correct parts of the head will allow for you to avoid over painting and have beautiful dimension!
.

Get ya pencils ready! It’s time to break down some @redken color theory!
.
Todays breakdown: 9P
.
This is a grey+blue/violet base.
.

GREY= lighter shade of black. Which equals blue underlying pigment.
.

BLUE= primary pigment.
.
VOILET= red and blue.
.
9P= 3 blues to one red/ 3 cools to 1 warm.
.

If you use straight 9P on top of 9 yellow, the violet will cancel out the yellow but the remaining blue will result in a muddy blonde result.

Let’s talk DARK ROOTS.
.
So, one of your blonde foiled clients comes in and wants a change. She shows you a picture of an overly filtered Pinterest babe with dark roots and blonde ends. Against your better judgement , you do it. Then.. she hates it and at her next appointment wants to be blonde again.
.
1.) Do the foil as you normally would.
.
2.) In the sink, section away the blonde money piece area.
.
3.) Lightly root shadow with a DEMI permanent about 2- 3 inches down.
.
4.) A demi perm will eventually soften up over time and when she realizes she hates having depth, you can with EASE, lighten her again!
.
5.) Make sure to keep as much face framing brightness as you can. Blondes are used to being blonde, if you take away the lightness framing their face.. they will most likely freak out.
.
6.) IMPORTANT* This is a script of a consultation I would use in the Salon.
. “This photo is awesome! However, you are very used to being blonde. I am so excited to give you a fun and fresh change but to ensure you are ready for this big change, let’s try a softer version of this to see how feel with more integrated depth. I’ll keep a beautiful pop around your face and soften out the blonde so depth can show through. Let’s book in 6 weeks! At our next appointment we can see how you adjusted. At this point, we can either add more depth or go bright again!”
.

PRICE. Make sure to let your guest know the price increase of this additional service. However, if your guest loves this new shadowed root, it may cost her less for upkeep. ( another great point to bring up in your consultation!)

Things I believe in.
.
1.) BE KIND.
2.) Work hard, I mean really hard.
3.) Don’t make excuses.
4.) Cultivate a success mindset.
5.) Never let anyone tell you they “made you”. If you bust your ass and put the work in, you made you.
6.) Manipulation ain’t cool.
7.) Celebrate your small successes.
8.) Talk to your self the way you talk to someone you love. Give yourself courage and strength if no one else will.
9.) Do not let victories go to your head, or failure go to your heart.
10.) If it’s important to you, you will find a way. .

GLOSSING.
.
Glossing or toning is where our artistry and chemistry come out to play! You can do a kick ass foilyage or Balayage application but it you can’t formulate or extend the longevity of your finishing gloss, your beautiful work won’t truly be complete!
.
Here are some tips on glossing-
.
1.) Use a porosity equalizer prior to glossing. ( I use kenra) This will assure your canvas is even before you apply your gloss.
.
2.) Study your color line. Every color line has different ratios of tones. To truly neutralize tones, fill hair, add warmth, etc, you have to understand your color line!
.

3.) Damp hair glossing. Towel dry the hair to ensure equal porosity but you will end up also using less product overall. (Win!) Make sure the hair is damp, not wet, this will dilute your product.
.
4.) Adequate processing time. Like I said in my previous “Root Smudging” post, let that shit sit! When using @redken shades, every minute you process equals one wash.( max 20 minutes) If you rinse too quickly, you risk the color not neutralizing and also it will rinse out too quickly for your guest.
.
5.)Want your gloss to last longer? Close that cuticle! At my salon @salt.hair , we use PH sealer @owayorganics to close the cuticle after lightening services and glossing services.
.
EXTRA HOT TIP: Have a client that is coming in for a maintenance gloss? Keep in mind, after a coloring service it takes a total of two weeks for the cuticle to completely close. This means you will need to slightly release/open the cuticle at a maintenance gloss appointment so you can have the gloss absorb effectively like it would after a lightening service. @painthatmane

Root smudging has taken over the hair world! Here is why. Ever since balayage has swept the color industry by storm, there have been so many free hand and foiling techniques that have surfaced. .
The reason root smudging is used, is to buffer out lines of demarcation to reflect depth in the root area. There are so many variations of this technique but when executed correctly, it has the most stunning result!
.

Here are some HOT tips on root smudging.
.
1.) Use a demi permanent. This will allow for less hard lines.
.

2.) Smudge on damp hair. This will allow for even porosity and easy product distribution.
.
3.) Use a wide tooth comb. If you use a comb with finer teeth, it will drag the product down too far and cause splotchiness.
.
4.) How long should you let this process for? If using @redken SEQ, every minute processed= one wash. For better longevity, let that shit sit! (Max time= 20 minutes)
.

5.) Charge accordingly. This is a luxury color service, your time, and artistry! My suggestion is to charge half of what your full root retouch price is. For example, if your root retouch price is 100.00, charge 50+ for the root smudge.

It’s very easy to compare yourself to a stranger. Your inner dialogue may tell you they have it better, or they are more successful, or they are more deserving.
.
Believe me when I tell you, everyone is fighting their own battle, every one has their own inner dialogue happening , and no one is more deserving than YOU.
