✨Free Hand Painting✨
This pic shows the exact part line I painted so you can see how beautiful it blends. Also I left her “raw” because I achieved my desired level and tone. I did however use Purple shampoo and conditioner just for a little control.🖤
My client loves this technique bc it gives her the ability to go 3 months in between visits with a gorgeous grow out verse wanting it in half that time when doing tradition highlights.

Alignment is literally my new grind. Everything I do, say, project, and accept. If you are on this journey with me then you know it is challenging at times. Just remember that our emotions and feelings are the indications we need to get back in alignment. So the next time something feels off- look at it straight on and be grateful for it, as it is telling you that you are out of alignment. Next time you lose your patients with your children- remember these emotions are reminding you that you are out of alignment. And on the other side- when you are in those amazing moments of love and bliss- be grateful for it and say to yourself I want more of this! Be grateful for it all! You deserve to feel good all the time! I love you all and hope you are having your best day.❤️

👇🏼Pro tips to keep it super BLENDED👇🏼
🔹Stager your placement at the part line
🔹Brick lay as you move up the head so the following section will collapse into the previous for a gorgeous blend.
🔹 Paint the hair in the direction it lives in. Painting to growth patterns will keep your work custom to each client and achieved the best grow out. 💙
🚨Bleach and Tone CORRECTION🚨
Here are some formulating tips to tackle your next bleach and tone correction with ease👇🏼
🔺Determine the natural level and formulate to that. You may need an anchor (splash of a lower level) to maintain depth depending on how light they are. This will get applied to break up zone 1-2.
🔺Mix a secondary color to use when pulling through mids to ends. This formula should have some background pigments in it so it doesn’t drab out.
🔺Use their existing blonde as the highlights/ balayage. I like to mix conditioner and Olaplex #1 to apply to these sections.
Client shown here’s formula:
Zone 1 : shades eq 7N + Olaplex
Zone 2&3 shades eq 7N/8Gi + Olaplex
Bb super rich conditioner + Olaplex # 1
...no toning necessary for existing blonde...

Here we goooo...
Gray coverage plus a foilayage. I do this simultaneously working the back to the front. I utilize my “go to” palette, (weave/ tipping / low light), plus painting the hairline.
I like to keep it my “weave” inconsistent. Some a wider weave and others a baby weave which is shown in the video. This also goes for product placement. In my baby lights I like to paint a W and in my wider weaves a V. Always painting higher on the sides to marry in with the front ribbons.
I also play with teasing some of the tips under the weave and others I don’t. Being consistently inconsistent is great for creating more of an organic feel. Really looking at your section and seeing what it’s calling for. Following head shape and growth patterns to always keep it custom!

I’ve been coming across, “The only way out is through.” This lately has meant for me, breaking down to break through. Allowing myself positive solitude to fully feel all of my emotions and being able to let them go from GOOD instead of pushed down or away. Trusting the universe knowing what is meant for me will always be for me. This has me looking WITHIN more then ever to re align with myself, my desires, and my truth which is my “go to” tool in my healing process.

My client was looking for some “highlights” without looking too concentrated at the root or feeling like an ombré.
I decided to use my “go to” palette in conjunction with oligo pro’s Black Light Lightener in Cool Tone Blonde mixed 1:1 to create some magic.
Before mixing I always section out accordingly to head shape and growth patterns. This aids in my application being fast and efficient and because I am going off head shape and growth pattern she will have a gorgeous grow out. ..
“GO TO” Palette:
Take a 2 inch deep, head shape section. Weave out on top a baby light. Clip that up. Then take the rest of the section and weave out from the bottom a “low light”. Then take that mid section- tease- and paint the tips painting one side higher. Then bring down the TOP babylight you weaves out earlier and paint it. That will marry into the tip. The dark you weave out under will support the “tip” and the babylight on top will melt into the tip creating the perfect blend. 👍🏻
For this application’s babylight- I painted some on a angle, some in a V some in a W leaving out an inch or so of root for softness.
She lifted perfectly to a pale yellow thanks to this amazing lightener. I was going for a creamy beige tone so I decided to tone her with shades eq 9Nb/9Gb plus @olaplex. And I always paint with my @framar brushes for the perfect stroke. 💛💜🖤
Thanks again @oligoprousa for the hook up! I’m in love and super grateful. 🙏🏻
