Moon Dust 🌚 By @beccajoyhair
1. You have to become a BLONDE in order to go grey. All orange and red undertones need to be removed from the hair, and you must be lifted to a pale yellow before a grey toner will really take. Yes, this is going to take away time, money, and some of the health of your hair. No two ways around it.
2. It takes a lot of TIME. I can lift her hair light enough in one session because she not only gives me the time and patience to sit through it all, but also because her hair is very fine. For someone with coarser hair, it may not be possible in one session. Things like hard water and hormonal medications can also make it harder to lift, so make sure your stylist is aware of any hormonal medications before doing something like this.
3. It is NOT typically achievable through hair painting, this was done with a foilayage technique. I know a lot of my clients looove the look of hair painting, and I do too! However, the amount of lift that's required to achieve grey isn't always doable using hair painting. Communicate what's more important to you: the look or the technique. Listen to your stylist and trust that they will choose the right method for the look you want.
