Still can’t believe that Natalie isn’t a natural redhead. This color looks so good on her I can’t handle it. Anyone else obsessed with copper hair lately? This is my dream hair color at the moment. Partial weave of baby lights with @redken Up to 7 lightener and 10vol (we don’t want to over lift her). Toned the root with ShadesEQ 7nb/6cb/6aa for 10 minutes and finished with a final gloss of 9aa/8wg/8c all over. 🧡
Formulation Challenge accepted!! 💪🏽
And what better place to accept a challenge than balayage bootcamp!
Here’s how this beauty went down:
1️⃣ Oh, best believe she was prepped! Used my BFF @malibucpro Crystal Gel to remove mineral buildup in her hair
2️⃣ Lighten with @oligopro Cool Toned Blonde. Once correct lightness was achieved, I used crystal gel to stop oxidation ✋🏽
3️⃣ Toned with @schwarzkopfusa Igora Vibrance 2 parts 9,5-19 1 part 9,5-5 on ends and 5-0 7-1 equal parts for the shadow root. Blend with @wowcomb_usa to bring it all together.
4️⃣ Style with my favorite leave-in from oligo 18-in-1 Beautifier 💜
BB for my BBs 🌻🍂 If you haven't used the BB's from @guytang_mydentity you need to hop to it because they deliver the most gorgeous tones ever 🙌🏽❤️ 5bb+7bb lowlight
On towel dried hair 5bb+ 7NI for Rootáge then glazed with 9bb+ golden sand + 6vol all formulas mixed 1:2 @olaplex #1 and 2 for that extra protection 🌟#hb4l

Color Correction Alert 💥 ~~ladies this was a 6 hour process. going lighter from such dark natural pigment and previously colored hair takes time and $$. be patient with your stylist and enjoy your unique hair journey.
