Micaela’s natural base is a level 7 (dark blonde) so this is easily achieved using a Balayage Application. She had existing highlights already but decided to make her blonde really pop this time
Toned with Pm Shines 9Bv
Stella lifted like a dream! This was her 2nd Session with me and she asked for it to be brighter and blonder.
I did a full Paint with full saturation on her ends to brighten her way up. I used 60 grams of Wella Blondor to 30 grams of Freelights together mixed with 90 grams of 40 volume developer and always @olaplex 🙌🏻
Toned with @schwarzkopfusa Igora Vibrance 9,5-21 #morevibrance#schwarzkopfusa

This is the result of multiple Balayage sessions spread out over just over a year. This multi tonal (warm and cool) and multi dimensional Balayage is absolutely Organic and I’m obsessed with it.

Last time we did lisa's hair we added some heavier contrast for her!! In this photo her hair is smooth but she has beautiful natural curls and the distinct tones help enhance them!! Used @matrix #lightmaster for lift and #colorsync for depth and tone.
I posted this is my stories today. Just in case you missed it.
Please don’t misunderstand the message. It’s not about not appreciating clients but finding clients that fulfill your passion as an artist and will challenge you and help you grow. ❤️❤️
I don’t put myself out there on my page in a public way at all. I Thought I should finally introduce myself. 😬 🙋🏼♀️
My name is Amy
I have 27 years behind the chair, 11 of them as a salon owner. I have been a balayage artist for just about 2 years now.
This journey throughout the last 2 years has been so surreal. I have endured extreme heartbreak and incredible triumphs. You have to take the good with the bad. If you haven’t failed often, you haven’t grown. As much as failure feels terrible, it is there that growth happens. If we don’t grow as artists or humans we just exist not live.
The decisions I’ve made over the past 2 years have had a positive and negative impact on my life. I decided I didn’t want to be obsolete in our industry any longer. I wanted to see what would happen if I really focused all of my energy at trying to be great at something. I worked tirelessly. 75 hour weeks. My body hurt but my passion for learning surpassed everything. There were many (and still are) that don’t support my journey. Many of my former clients feel betrayed and don’t think very much of me because I outgrew them. They feel because of their loyalty that somehow that entitles them to loyalty in return. But the truth is, If I didn’t do a great job they wouldn’t have kept coming. Root touch ups and trims every 5 weeks for 15-20 years didn’t make me feel fulfilled as an artist. They paid my bills and I was grateful. But it became more than that for me. I needed to make drastic changes ... and I did just that.
I do this for me. I do it for my soul. I’ve never been more alive in my career than I have in the last 2 years. I’ve met incredible artists who’ve turned into supportive and amazing friends. I have an entire new group of stylists that I am blessed to spend each day with and help them grow into the artists they dream of. It fills my heart to help others. They fill my heart with their passion and I learn so much from them.
So many incredible things have come my way. I still have to keep pinching myself that this is my life now. Thank you to all of you who have supported my work and my journey. I’m forever grateful ❤️
Before and After on Abbie. She had a fairly prominent band of old color from a root shadow another stylist did with permanent color. I did 1 inch sections to blend out her band without getting into a full corrective color.
I used Wella Blondor and 1 scoop of Freelights with 40 volume in her dark areas and Freelights with 20 volume on her previous highlights. Both contained @olaplex
I toned her with @schwarzkopfusa Igora Vibrance 9-1
Styled her with @alternahaircare Caviar Smoothing Gelee and Omega Anti Frizz Oil cocktailed together
Full Foil with Root Shadow
I used @schwarzkopfusa BlondeMe with 7 volume in the front and 20 into 30 as I went up the back and @olaplex in every bowl
Root Shadow// Igora Vibrance 20grams 7-1 and 10 grams 8-11
Toned with equal parts 9,5-21 & 9-1 #schwarzkopfusa#morevibrance
This was broken up into 2 appointments. I fixed her base color first and canceled out all of the brassy orange tones in her hair using Paul Mitchell 5Na and 7Na
Second visit the following week I Root melted her using Pm Shines 6Bv to add more depth and change the tone to a Violet base and did a full balayage. Toned with Pm Shines 9Bv
