This client wanted blonde highlights and wanted her one length hair to be layered. Her med brown hair was (2/3 head) foiled using 20 vol and lightener and toned . The layers started from chin lenth down and very texurized to give a more choppy look. Blow dry lotion and root lift were used to give a nice sleek look. Then I flat ironed her hair and ran a bit of shine serum through the ends.
This client I started with graduated layers at the nape area slicing out the strands to make texture. The rest I cut uniform lengths increasing the length to the fringe area, going back in and texturizing with the razor. I then sculpted the fringe and sides with the razor with the fringe shorter (a touch) at the on side . I put in some styling cream and blow dried the hair up from in the opposite direction at the roots with a Denman brush then swithing dirctions using a paddle brush from the crown forward. I used a straightener and finished with a dry spray wax all over to separate and piece it out. A touch of soft wax for individual tips .
My first client today wanted this look including the color. I cut her below shoulder length hair to the bottom of the neck level. I gave her uniform length layers from the back to the ears, leaving the fringe area and the sides out. I pulled diagonal sections fron the sides and brought them to a stationary point at the back to create slightly longer layers at the front.Then the hair was notched and texturized to create a soft but piecey look and feel to it. the fringe she wanted a slight angled side fringe. I sliced the fringe area to lighten them a little and shaped the front to frame her face nicely. For color whe used lightener and 20 vol peroxide and toned her with a 10 BN (Goldwell) colorance with a splash of clear to give a little shine back. I used some root lift and styling lotion and used a paddle brush to blowdry the hair in different directions using a little pomade wax on the ends to define a bit. She loved it and was very happy.
