Who else is a sucker for a before and after? 👋🏻
..
I hand painted her highlights using 30vol on her new growth and 10vol on her prelighten areas to brighten them up a bit. Even though most lighteners are made with bonders, I still use my @olaplex for all the extra LOVE. I achieved my desire level of lightness so No need for a toner and just sealed this gorgeousness with a treatment.💜
..
Pro Tip:
Play around with your placement. This will create gorgeous variation keeping every head super custom and it always helps aid with an effortless grow out. Swipe to see a clip 📽 to see what I’m talking about. 💋

I love hand painting! Here I used a 1:1 1/2 ratio and processed for 45min under a cap. No smudge root, just a clear gloss with a little 9P + Olaplex to ice her out and treat. I finished her off with a Redken Chemistry shot treatment to bring her ph back down, replace proteins & moisture and lock my gloss in. 💛

“Your so beautiful Girl a blind man could love you- woo!”
..
Loving this transformation I did today on this babe! I utilized a “weave and tease” technique I learned at BBC this weekend. ..
✔️Total time ⏰ 4 hours
✔️Heavy Half Head Foils
✔️Product used @oligoprousa extra blonde and 20vol with @olaplex ✔️@redken Shadow root and gloss on the ends.
..
Pro Tip:
After I was done with my application, I went back in to where I first started and pulled out what had lifted to my desired result and then re saturated everything else To ensure proper and even lift. Had I not done this step, she would have only lifted to the color on her ends in the before picture. Taking this additional step was crucial to achieving my max lift in one visit and only took me an additional 20mins.🙌🏼💛

This past weekend eye had the pleasure of learning from this epic babe right here! Her✌🏼day Master Balayage Bootcamp was infinite with information from technique, color theory, color math, and more I can’t list bc it would take the whole page. And if that weren’t enough she even had 3 badass educators ( @emmanuellstyles @alfredo_lewis @isaac4mayor + @ermaloveshair ) with her to showcase their techniques to spread even more knowledge PLUS a Business/ social media class that included @hairbrained_official! 🙌🏼 WOW, right?! You NEED to take this class and in my opinion can’t afford not to. 😜
..
So much value it is insane. Thank you again @lisalovesbalayage for your magic this weekend and @victorval for putting all of it together! ..
Eye had a great time!
So much LOVE for you all. ✨❤️✨

✨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.
..
Tools used:
@oligoprousa Extra Blonde and 25vol
@framar Brush, clips and paddle
@saloncentric cotton for separating 
@ysparkusa Tail comb for clean partings

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.❤️

I remember when I first starting dropping lines like this.. I was afraid of it looking harsh, bleeding, taking FOrEVeR to do and I also struggled with confidence to even attempt. 🔹So how did I start? I started by slowing intergrading it into my practice. I would paint the mids and ends, practicing my line pick up and drop in between foils on my highlight clients.🔹 Once I got confident with my technique, I ditched the foils and went for a complete application.🔹 Moral of the story is that we have 2 choices.. repeat OR evolve. I choose to trust myself and evolve my skill set and add another tool I can utilize in my creative process. If you haven’t already given this freehand approach a try, I hope this gives you a little inspiration to do so!💙

🚨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...

🎶Love Conquers ALL🎶
Kinda hyping up this DRY ✂️ CUT with this track and I like it!! Lol🤣
..
In all seriousness though, I ❤️ dry cutting. I dry cut 90% of the time especially before a lightening application like this client here. I like to “draw my picture before coloring it in” so to speak. 😉

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!
..
Materials used:
• @oligoprousa Black Light equal parts Cool Tone Blonde + Extra Blonde with 25vol mixed 1:1.
• @redken Cover Fusions 3NN/2NA with @trionicshaircare Gray B Gone devolper.
• @framar Foils and Brush
•Toner @redken shades eq + @olaplex

Sending💓LOVE to everyone who’s trying their best to heal from the things they don’t discuss.
..
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.

Press PLAY ▶️ to see my first ever creation with @oligoprousa 🙌🏼💜
..
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. 💛💜🖤
..
P.s.
Thanks again @oligoprousa for the hook up!  I’m in love and super grateful. 🙏🏻
