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.”
My #1 piece of advice for warmth? Don’t let it scare you!!! It can be beautiful and NOT brassy! When formulating for warmer tones remember to use what you already have! Understanding proper color theory and your color line will allow you to formulate for your result easily. 8N/8V/8NA/9V #AlyDavisHair #WarmHairColor #BrunetteBalayage #Redken

BRONZing with my fav formula I think this is the perfect shade of bronde/beige for brunettes that are afraid of looking to warm. 1st session painting for this beauty. Always expect warmth when lightening. Used @schwarzkopfusa lightener to lighten and @wellahairusa 7/89 and 7/97 to tone I use @olaplex in every service to insure that my clients hair stays healthy and strongNo two heads are the same. Sessions are key and may be required for some looks.
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.
