This week's #hairJOURNEY (part 1)🤗 I think being HONEST where hair - particularly colour - journeys are up to is REALLY IMPORTANT!! This enables clients, both current and future, to understand that their desired colours hopefully (I say hopefully as sometimes with even the greatest hairdressers magic hands our lovely clients can sometimes desire the absolute impossible... thanks to (predominantly) social media and FILTERING 🙄🤦🏽♀️) can be achieved (or as close to) but... may take more than one visit to achieve this #FACT
My lovely client pictured here came to me after having her hair coloured (only weeks ago, somewhere else) the applied colour had needed a little more blending and breaking up and toning down a little.
I applied a full head of baby lights using 2 colours and spatulas.
The first picture is where we are now up to after just one colour visit with me (I didn't cut this time) The second picture I wanted to enlarge a close up to echo the vulnerability of the finished colour... I think this is really important in this day and age so we can all see what's REALLY going on 😉
The 'interesting' part for me was after the colour had been washed off a darker band had been exposed a couple of inches down, that no one would have ever known about if I hadn't of lightened. Thankfully this band cannot be seen (because it's underneath) and WILL be addressed next time... so WHY am I telling you this 🤔 Because this is REAL LIFE and these things DO happen (when clients have come from elsewhere) We just have to do our best and keep 🤞🙏🤞
