Oops! I did it again!

ok, so it's not an oops....its marvelous!
 Today I did a balayage on one of my clients that is truly wonderful! This client is a hairdressers dream! Always open to new ideas and excited about change.
 Kirsten was even kind and courageous enough to let me document the procedure in pictures. ( I will tell you that I think the lighting in my station in pictures tends to look more yellow than it really looks in person.....)

First off, lets show you how she looked when she came in.  We have been high and low lighting her hair, and as she put it " the color is beautiful but I'm bored" Also she was tired of her haircut....a beautiful haircut, she says...but once again....she's bored.
The first thing we did was an all over application of Brocato Demi color 6/75. 15 minutes under the dryer and 15 minutes cool down before rinsing. 

oh! I really have to get used to working with a bottle application! I am already referred to as the "Jackson Pollack" hairdresser in our salon.  (For those of you who do not know, he is the artist who is famous for the paintings he created by standing back and literally throwing paint at the canvas) Here is the GOOD thing: The color comes completely off my clients skin leaving no residue on their faces.
  Next I washed the color off and placed her in the dryer while I made the cream lightener.  The lightener is mixed 2 to 1 with the creamy 20 volume developer. I applied the lightener using the balayage technique in the following way: every section below the crown section inverted triangles, the crown section I used pinchura technique.

In the picture it looks like I left the bangs out, but really I just set the pinches off to the side so they didn't hit her in the eyes.  I processed the lightener 25 minutes and then washed and conditioned with Vibracolor.
  Next I changed up her haircut a little bit to make it more loose and fun, although we are going to grow it out a bit and change the inversion, for today I layered all the interior and texturized it heavily creating a ton of movement.
The result was so great!  Fun, movable, fresh color, everything wonderful!
Thank you Kirsten, so very much for everything.  Thanks for your fun attitude, for your encouragement and for your undeniable beauty. I love being your hairdresser.

Thank you Brocato for supporting me and giving me tools to work with that deliver what they promise. Today you made ME look good!

Brocato Color Results!

Oh yeah! I am so excited. I have been using the demi color all week and the results are amazing!
 Clear beautiful colors that shine shine shine!
Look what I caught my client Nichole doing on her facebook....

Nichole was a level 9 and 10 highlighted blonde.  Her formula was one part 6/0 (6/N) and one part 6/75 (6BR) and I did a bottle application. (not something I am used to but it worked GREAT, and much less messy than when I did it with a brush.) She spent 15 minutes in the dryer with a cap on and then 15 minutes to cool down. The results were so worth trying things a new way.

Yeah, Nichole, you look great!  Thanks for trusting me when I tell you Brocato Demi Color Project rocks!

Balayage : The first time!

Today I opened my kit and played with some of the cool demi color project stuff I got from the Brocato Training.
 I worked on my colleague, Dawn,.  I first applied 7/73 to her entire head to even out the color and old foiling that she had left in the ends. I processed it for 20 minutes. Then I removed it and dried her hair and did Balayage on it with the new cream lightener form Brocato.  I did inverted triangles in the bottom two sections, and pinches on the top.

Balayage is a new technique to me but I loved the results.

When it comes to lightening up, one of the most natural-looking and modern coloring techniques available right now is balayage. Essentially, balayage involves painting sections of the hair freehand, rather than using foils or a streaking cap. The end result is a sexy “grown out” look that takes literally minutes to achieve, and requires less maintenance than traditional highlights. 

Thank you Dawn, for letting me have my way with your head. You look marvelous!
