When I started teaching colour for L’oreal Proffessional USA in 1999,I had to earn my stripes and learn how to translate my knowledge and skills into ways that people could understand, so trade shows in small cities is where it all began for me, but before long I knew that I loved being in a class room talking and demonstrating salon successful colour, rather than on stage in front of thousands of people demonstrating techniques I never used in the salon, it was the one thing I knew early on – I wanted to share with other Hairdressers how to create beautiful wearable believable hair colour.
The Hairdressing industry has done to itself no favours by classifiying highlights into three or four sections Full head, 3/4 head, half head and T-section.I’m sure that part of this was to do with stock control,streamling services and pricing for clients but this concept is odd to me because when we talk about highlights I don’t think it should be in terms of how many, it should be about the finished result.
The Gray issue
In my experience as a hair colourist a thorough consultation is the key to a successful result. For me it is the most important and one of the most personal things I can do with my clients. A thorough and clear Consultation will help determine the right result before I actually start any bespoke colour service.
such as Penelope Cruz, Giselle, Drew Barrymore who all sport these.
To mimic how the sun naturally catches the hair, the brightest pieces of colour are always placed around the face and ends of the hair, making Ombre and Balayage’s application more organic than traditional highlights. The result is softer regrowth so the tell-tale dark line where colour grows out is a thing of the past.
