Before and after on @msyeung_
Zoe came to see me last week as she was disappointed with a local salon who had charged her an obscene amount of money for balayage. The before picture shows exactly what she got on her beautiful virgin hair.
After a good consultation I explained to Zoe exactly what she could expect and achieve in one appointment with me. We discussed the type of colour she wanted to see and where she wanted to see it. (colour placement)
Balayage is a hand painted technique. It's about the colour gracefully going from dark to light, creating depth and tone in the hair. It is NOT a foil technique with the saturation of colour the same from root to tip. This will only ever give you chunks of colour with harsh lines. ( this is what Zoe had )
@Redken#freehand Is a hand painting lightener especially created for such techniques. It gives such a seamless finish to all of my hand painted work.
I think that you will agree that he colour looks amazing and I can't wait to do it again soon.
Colour correction 💫
We don't love posting before photos when it comes to other people's work. We want to encourage industry support and stylists supporting stylists! This would've been a good exception though ✨
Basically, we had a few good inches of solid dark that we lifted and blended to give us this pretty melt 💫
