Attention to detail is key 👩🏼🎨 Hairline details are so important to me, it’s the first place a client sees when they wear their hair up
I only use this method on clients with a natural level 7 or higher base✔️ I use this method on clients that have a lot of baby hairs around their hairline that can’t be reached with foils✔️ Using lightener with 30 or 40 volume✔️ Tapping only the baby hairs around the hairline with a tint brush✔️ I leave this on for no longer than 15 minutes ❌
Take the time out to perfect your work, it will only benefit you ❤️ .

I get so many questions about BRASSY hair. How to prevent it from happening? What to do when it does happen? How do I make it ashy?
As I’ve stated several times if you lift, lighten, or even bump the natural hair it is going to turn warm. The darker the hair the warmer it will be!
You cannot lift the hair to ashy nor can you keep it ashy.
Think about a poster that’s white but been exposed to the sun for a period of time. What color does it turn? Think about your white clothes that have been bleached too many times. They usually end up turning yellow with holes in it. Well guess what 🤷🏻♀️ same thing happens to the hair. •
Here’s an example
We use foundation to smooth and even out our skin, reduce redness, cover up acne, etc. much like a toner does but after the makeup comes off and we’re back to our “normal” skin were left with whatever problem was there to begin with just like when the toner fades you’ll be back to “brassy” •
In order for hair to not get brassy you would have to lift past pale yellow which means you’ve removed all the keratin protein from the hair and I can guarantee it won’t hold any color at that point. The more porous the hair, the more temporary the color will be (even permanent). •
Toners are just a temporary solution and pigmented shampoos can help (only on light hair, not orange) but can also be drying because they are high in alkalinity. •
This is a client of mine after session 1 then 9 months later and you can see how brassy she returned. To get her to pic 3 I had to lighten her again. Yes I applied lightener over previously bleached hair. •
When the hair is orange 🍊 and you attempt to apply something with blue in it does it actually make it ashy? 🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️
Here’s my advice...
Lift the hair to an “acceptable” color so that when it does fade it still looks nice 👍🏼 Stop ✋🏼 trying to put bandaids on things that require surgery 👩🏻⚕️
When it comes to underlying pigment vs. color which is stronger and which one fades?
sunkissed Sunday 🌞 another look at this great head of hair!!
