Hair of the day!

Who doesn’t love the beautiful and highly popular ombré?I know I do! I love when a client sits in my chair shows me a picture and says “go for it”. I have this one client who always wants something new and different (she is in previous hair posts), this time she sat down and said “I want darker on top and lighter on the bottom” That is something I can do!  

 Taking her base a full shade darker and her ends a shade lighter created the dramatic look she was wanting. We added olaplex to the bleach so we could overlap her previously lightened hair to get the lift we needed. 

   This sweetheart came in with golden blonde hair and wanted more neautral colors. We used 3 different shades of blonde to create this multi dimensional look. 

When she first came in, I couldn’t quite figure out where I’d seen her. After raddling off different locations she’s worked we found where I’d met her, the local bar around the corner. 

All-in-all I had a great day! I met new people, caught up with friends and did hair. What more could a girl ask for?

Today’s hair of the day, I am very proud of. (I am proud of all my work but this is my favorite so far.) I received a text message late last night from another gal at the salon saying that she rescheduled her clients sister from Thursday for a color correction to my books the next day because of time conflicts. I had no idea what I was walking into!

The very sweet mother of 4, of which I had an awesome time. Something happened with her usual stylist, she left very unhappy and didn’t feel like she could talk to her stylist. We took her golden tones and added a lowlight and a lighter blonde. We also took her Partial and raised it a full.

Highlight: 20vol Blondor with Olaplex 
Lowlight: 55/0 =10vol
Toner:  2 part clear and 1 part 9B Shades EQ

I love these photos. These two are my absolute favorite out of this whole series.  They show the truest color as well as my lovely station.  _DSC0672copy

 

Another reason I am thrilled with this hair, is also the fact that I took my DSLR to work for the first time in my Hair Career and used my SB-600 Speedlight and got tremendous results. I have been fighting with the lighting at the salon while using my camera from my smartphone. This was my first time using my DSLR and my Speedlight for something other then playing around. Since I got my speedlight (3 years ago) I hadn’t really used it other then to play with it (to figure it out)

We also reshaped the previous haircut adding more layers! It was such a pleasure to work with you today!

We also gave her a new style by removing 5 inches ( yes I said 5… look she has a ton of hair still)  We brought her layers up and gave her some lovely face framing.

This was our first adventure!! Adding Just highlights, She went from not being able to run her hands through her hair without knotting up, or breaking to having beautiful locks again.
