Friday fun ... Should I get that crease filled, botox or just go with it? I kinda think that I should leave it alone and just keep my hair blonde ! THOUGHTS - a face full of botox or strategically placed ! You know I love some clever strategic placement. 😂😂 ...

If it ain’t white it won’t be light. As a rule of thumb for great even lift the surface of the section needs to have lots of product on it, no harsh lines if you hold your brush the right way and sweep (balayage means to sweep or to paint) down the hair section and feather towards the top. If you hold your brush the way you foil it won’t be seamless I can guarantee that as it’s one of the main causes of harsh lines when people balayage . What do you find the most difficult when doing a balayage application ? Comment below and I’ll try to help #balayage #processingporn #hairdresserproblems #haircolor #hairpainters #whosaidcommercialhaircolorisboring #balayagebyjackhoward ...

Build that story. Each client is different so for me although I have basic patterns I use I adapt each time a client sits in my chair, as you stand back and look at your work you can see the story your building . Do you stand back and look as you work? Easy when you don’t use foil ! Remember each application is as unique as your fingerprint ! #balayage #blondme #blondehair #blondebalayage #hairdressing #hairdresserproblems #whosaidcommercialhaircolorisboring #processingporn USING THE NEW @schwarzkopfpro BLONDME CLAY. ...

Do you know your fundamentals. THIS IS YOUR COLOR BIBLE. All undercoats are warm so as I’ve said before lifting to the right undercoat is so important or your glaze (toner) won’t work . Basic but not basic bitch, know your undercoats and color wheel, life is easier when you know it... and you can tell clients that they need da glaze to keep it cool ! #knowledgeispower #balayage #hairdresserproblems #haircolor #whosaidcommercialhaircolorisboring I’ve found that in this age of so much pre lightner it’s easier to include the price of the glaze in the service, rather than charging extra ! THOUGHTS I’d love to hear them please post below ...

When you do it the second time. A real classic balayage application, but the RULES OF COLOR don’t CHANGE, because it’s balayage . If you need to correct the base then do it first, if you need to run it through the ends and the hair can handle it, do it . Remember to charge properly for the services you do and explain to the client why you are doing what you are charging for. #balayage #blonde #hair #haircolor #hairdresserproblems #whosaidcommercialhaircolorisboring #balayagebyjackhoward ...

Hairline process. When you do it at the basin for da extra pop. This is something we always did in the USA. After a tint, balayage or foil. It just gives the client a fresh pop of lightness. Obviously towel dry and then with a higher volume I use 40 vol paint softly around the hairline. It’s very quick and a fantastic add on service that clients love. Generally I leave it for about 15 mins but always use your judgement. IS THIS SOMETHING you would do ? Painting at the backwash isn’t new but it’s quick and effective, it also frees up a chair in the salon so you can look after another client, which means more dollar in your paycheck and you know I love that! #balayageeducation #balayage #blondme #whosaidcommercialhaircolorisboring #hairdresserproblems #hairpainting ...
