I totally tell my clients that their hair is going to look bad.
That's right. I tell my clients that, when we first rinse their balayage/highlights, their hair might look scary as f*ck. It's part of the process!
Read below to hear more about the process of having beautiful, lived-in color and why I warn my clients about the scary-fairy, bad hair phase during our appointment that makes some people sh*t their pants.
In the consultation we address your hair goals and dreams, where you are at currently, and make a game plan to get to your hair goals.
My job here is to ask lots of questions and you job is to be honest and voice exactly what is on your mind!
Here is a list of a few things i consider for your appointment
Application: For your color, are we going to use a balayage, highlight, or teasy-light application method?
Does your goal hair require multiple sessions?
What do the maintenance appointments look like and how often?
To get your dream hair, do you need hair extensions?
Are hair extensions are a good option for you? If so, which method??

Second, Application of the Hair Color:
This next step is where I use my glorious wizard brain(jk its a normal brain) to formulate the color and lightener formulas that your hair needs in order to achieve our goal hair.
From balayage formulas that use more clay-based lighteners to highlight and lowlight formulas that can be tweaked endlessly to suit your specific hair type.
Example: If your hair has
Various colors in it already
Any banding of colors
ANY previous color or chemical processing
-All of these and more have effect on how color, even lived-in hair color like balayage or teasy-lights, take to the hair. I must also formulate based off of your natural hair color and texture; fine hair and course hair accept color differently!
Third, Glossing: (Glosses are also known as Toners, Glazes, Overlays, etc.)
This is where I tell people their hair will look scary-fairy.
This looks like she is in need of a color correction.
All she needs is a good gloss. That color placement and lift is PERFECTO.
After the hair color, balayage, highlights, babylights or any variety or combination of lived-in color techniques is done processing, I will rinse and shampoo your hair; bringing you over to gloss at my chair where you will be looking straight at some brassy, yellow nonsense.
Thats no fun so our next step of the process goes like this:
Apply the gloss
WAIT for 20 minutes for the gloss to process
Apply any extra treatments for bond building or deep conditioning, and condition like usual.
Bring you over to the main chair and prep to blow dry with your fave products!
Blow dry the front pieces to have you approve of tone and placement of our hair color. No surprises here, please!
Lastly, The STYLE
Go ahead, check yourself out.
This is where you get to feel like the damn queen you are.
Revel in the fact that you didn't know you could look this good.
I tell people your hair will be scary and wont look good after rinsing and before the gloss so that you don't get nervous or stressed during the process! It all comes together in the end but it takes a few steps to get there and gets worse before it gets better!
