2 HOUR FOIL TRANSFORMATION we went from outgrown classic foil with lowlights to a luscious butter blonde with platinum pieces ✨💎 #stylesbyalexis ✨💎 tips for clients wanting something like this:
-olaplex, hair masques, more olaplex... oh wait did i mention olaplex?? A process like this is no joke. Yes, im careful to not overlap, but when you have foils sitting this long and doing them back to back even using a low developer can dry the hair. If a client’s hair is not healthy to begin with, i may advise doing this is multiple sessions with olaplex treatments and at home hair masques in between.
-at home care is the most important! Purple shampoo and conditioner is an absolute must, leave in conditioner, oil or shine mist to look and feel hydrated, hair masque to keep condition and repair any damage, heat protectant always (your hair will snap off if you dont...ask me how i know 🙄)
-think of maintenance: this look could go two routes, you could fully commit and become a double process blonde (3-4 week root touch ups) or every 6-8 weeks of full highlights foil work. We had to eat through so much lowlight, but the goal was to get her ends super bright and she likes a shadow so we went in 8 weeks later for a classic heavy full foil. In the end, expect maintenance! Not to mention the refresh toner you’ll want to come in for after month to keep the tone fresh and flawless
-cut your hair: im not telling you to chop it all off, but if it looks fried...its not cute. 💎tips for stylists:
-when you have to overlap lightener, i love to put our 0N (clear gloss) to dilute the lightener but pop those “almost there” pieces and it keeps the hair from snapping
-olaplex! Always tell them to olaplex, make it a requirement... at least if they are going this light. Your name is on that work and you want it to look 💯 -charge for it: 2 hours of foil work, extra color charge, toner, custom finish styling. Thats almost 5 hours my friend... $$$
-recommend all the necessities: you have to tell them how to keep their hair in good condition at home. It makes their life amazing because they will have healthy beautiful luscious blonde and uhm, THATS YOUR BILLBOARD!
