Hair Color Before And After Part Two

Two weeks ago I made a blog on my model who is having hair color correction. The other day we went to work on the hair by adding low lights to the hair color to start giving it a fall color and added dimension. Which it lacked.  We added low lights to the hair which was in the level seven family and also added a ash color to complement it. We have finally cancelled out all of the yellow in her hair. The next appointment will be for highlights. To soften the dark root color.  I gave the client a bottle of Frost hair color toner to use every week. This will keep her hair color on mark and will stop all fading of it also.

This toner is used for pre-lightened hair. It’s a great hair product that won’t damage your hair! It actually restores the pH balance of your hair and makes it oh so soft. It improves the quality and shine of your hair while soothing your scalp all at the same time!!

Hair Color Before And After Joseph Kellner

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.

The above photograph is the finished product.

Shine Nectar For My Photo-Shoot Model

Over the weekend I had a photo-shoot with a very talented model who came down from Michigan. She had ethnic Hair and I wanted separation and shine to the hair for this photo-shoot. I used Shine Nectar from Jack Winn.  For separation and shine. The product did not weight the hair down at all. Nor did it make it greasy. Very easy to work with. The product had a very light scent to it.  A clean scent. Lovely. Great for styling the hair and for shine.

The makeup for this photo-shoot was MAC Makeup. Location of this photo-shoot was in Orlando, Florida.

Restore Hair Color With Highlights By Jack Wynn

The model above requested a beige blonde hair color and medium blonde low-lights. I started with a new hair color line called Jack Wynn for the process.  This is a new line I will be using in the future for my clients and photo-shoot models. I started of with the Brilliant Lightener and did a basic foil wrap to the clients wish’s.

Processed the service with a level 6-Gold low-light formula with 10 volume developer for deposit only. Below is the RAW finish. I did not get a lot of breakage with the lightener.  So all went well with the process.

The next step was to all a more natural tone to the hair color process. I used a 9.13 from the Jack Wynn Restore Demi-Permanent line and followed manufacturers advice and mixed it with 1-1.5 developer which was 3%.  Customer was happy.

Design Spray 9 Great For Thermal Styling

Setting the hair and preparing for a photo-shoot is important. You need to place a buffer on the hair from the heat of thermo styling tools. Especially if the hair is blonde. Blonde hair is lightened to the highest levels and will often break if the heat of a styling tool is set too high. Temperature is very important when curling the hair and straightening the hair. I like to use a light weight hair spray for buffering the hair when styling and also light weight enough for working with the hair.

Try using the Kenra Design Spray 9 for your styling aids. It is a very light weight product and also is good for working with the hair and styling it in place. But not strong enough for a firm hold.

Tames frizz & flyaways, Lightweight, brush-able formula, Provides enhanced definition for moveable styles. One side sprayed with the styling spray the other with nothing. As you can see you get a smooth non flyaway finish.

Redken Hair Color Change For Fall

This Model was prepared for her Photo-Shoot this week and requested a deeper color all over. I also suggested that it would be a good idea since the hair was dry and brittle from constant overlapping and flat ironing.  When ever you use a curling iron or flat iron. Always prep the hair with a styling lotion and dry all of the hair thoroughly. Section your hair and curl or straighten it and use a dry hair spray on each section to protect it.  Don’t use any products with moisture in it.

A level 4.3 and 6.4 was mixed for the new-growth and also the same formula for the mid shaft and ends of the hair. With varying developer strengths. Shea Moisture Cosmetics was used to wash and condition the hair. And for styling the hair. Excellent product to work with. There was no color gloss’s added to the hair of the completion of the permanent hair color service.  Mac Makeup was used for her Photo-Shoot.  The Photo-Shoot was held on Melbourne Beach Florida.
