I just got back from a busy weekend in Columbus Ohio to share my thoughts and ideas on how to create beautiful hair color using tools from many of my mentors in the past 20+ years, yes 20+ years....Time fly's when your having fun! I had the pleasure of created on 2 totally different canvases. Both of my models had level 4, the difference was one was cool brown and one was warm brown.
American Baliage technique creating soft caramel shades running through. I started in the bottom nape working up and forward on diagnal and ALL slices, leaving only 15% of her natural in between foil....yes its alot of work but beautiful believable results! Focusing the 8Gc+ as her focus hair color.
Formula 1- Joico K-Pak 8Gc+ with 40 volume
Formula 2- Joico K-Pak 6Cg+ with 20 volume
Formula 3- Joico K-Pak &FOR with 20 volume
Soft Ombre technique....I started with in the nape coloring ALL ends in foils, applying haircolor only on mid-lenghts and ends and slices on a soft diagonal to create an endless beginning.
