🎄 10th DAY OF CHRISTMAS 🎄 softening an ombré into a balayage is one of my favourite things to do on someone’s hair. That instant dimension ( if you don’t already know - I’m all about contouring hair 😍) getting a natural more sun kissed or just more of a balayage look - in such a short space of time. Something that’s quite dramatic but doesn’t too much of a journey almost like instant satisfaction. So if your hair is anything similar to Sofia’s before pic, come and be my canvas 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

Happy Sunday friends☕️🖤
@oligopro blacklight cool tone protected with @brazilianbondbuilder . babylights around the hairline for face framing detail. no root shadowing just a blend with her natural level 5 base. glossed with @redken SEQ 9P 9V 9GI.
For the record, everytime I write out a caption for a photo along the lines of “Chocolatey Vanilla Swirl Caramel Latte with a Shot of Espresso Gingerbread Ice Cream Cake” a part of my soul dies ☠️ Anyone else? 😂
Sometimes less is more 🖤 We did a full balayage about a year and a half ago on this babe and have not needed to do another full since! Every 2.5 months we do a healthy trim and a partial balayage touch up (around the hairline in the back and around the face, weave on the top section of the crown)
PAINT: @oligopro clay/extra blonde + @olaplex
GLOSS: 9V 9NB clear @redken
Do ash tones even exist outside of Instagram? 😂 Just kidding. But seriously. I’ve been loving these posts other stylists have been making lately regarding the issue so I decided to jump on the wagon.
We live in a digital age where almost anyone can figure out how to manipulate images like this. Why is it hurtful to our industry? Because it sets us up for utter failure. My client is a natural level 3 and in order to reflect the tones of the edited picture, she would probably end up a damaged mess.
Coarse dark hair will never blonde like fine medium hair. But now that my client is in my chair showing me a photoshopped picture, I feel pressured to deliver unrealistic results(although I’m pretty good at telling clients it’s not gonna happen). Not only will you NOT be able to recreate YOUR own “work”, but think of the other stylists across state lines being shown your fabricated image and sweating bullets trying to be like you. Wondering why they aren’t as “good” as you. It’s just not cool. We wonder why clients have these huge expectations and don’t realize the problem starts with US. So don’t photoshop your pictures and educate your clients 🙌🏻 Also, have a great week 😍 #thestruggleisreal
