Hair coloring is a ART!. And there comes a time when the client wants a hair color but should be talked out of it. Because of the condition of the hair or the base color is too dark for the clients hair coloring choice. My client is a model and has a base color of a level 4-5. She had a balayage hair color that took her up to a level 9-10. Which faded out to some very strong brassy tones. Which was why the hair color was not applied evenly and not given the proper timing for lift. Below is a photo of the original color.
My Client received low-lites to create some cool dimension. And also to rid the hair of the yellow cast and orange banding on the root. The color choices were 10.1 + 9.01 10 volume balayaged and finished with a violet toner processed for 35 minutes. Hair was also trimmed to relieve it of all split ends.
