IG Trend Alert: Brunette Bombshells

As the days get longer and the air gets cooler, so too do tones turn to the darker side. But today’s clients aren’t looking for a one-and-done application. They’re looking for three things: dimension, dimension, dimension. When choosing the right tones for your brown-haired beauties, make sure they complement the clients’ skin tones, says Beauty Launchpad Education Team member Aly Davis. “You could do the most beautiful application, but if the tones don’t suit your clients, chances are they’ll always feel something is off,” she remarks. What’s more, consider what your client wants her end result to look like when choosing which technique to lighten her dark tresses, says Amy McManus. “You’re lightening hair almost the full length of the spectrum, so it takes time and patience to get there,” she explains. “Balayage creates soft nuances that foiling doesn’t. Both are effective, but foiling is faster and more tonal control will be achieved. Balayage leaves warmth in the hair.”

 

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself. . . . . Well today I “threw myself”. I have decided to leave the salon I’ve been at for 9 years to take a leap of faith and start my new chapter @deeprootsatx ! I’m beyond excited! I’m also scared. I feel overwhelmed. But most of all I feel grateful. Grateful for every one of my clients. Thank you all for the years I’ve had the pleasure of doing your hair. Thank you for your continued support. Thank you for coming on this journey with me. Thank you @mdjhair for letting me come to your beautiful salon and be a part of this amazing group. It’s going to be amazing!! Eeeek!! Cheers to throwing yourself  . . . . #modernsalon #artistconnective #behindthechair #mobambassador #mastersofbalayage #bestofbalayage #americansalon #citiesbesthairartist #basicsofbalayage #balayage #brunette #brunettebalayage #austin #austinhairstylist #deeprootsatx #balayageaustin #austinbalayage #change #grow #shadeseqvb
