crystal had a bright blue color in her hair. it faded to a greenish color, so she decided to use a color remover to take out the residual color. the result was less than desirable. the product she used probably contained peroxide or some other bleaching agent which LIGHTENED some of her NATURAL DARK COLOR and left her with this band of warm orange in her hair.
what we’re going to do today is pull up all of the BLONDE and make a seamless transition to incorporate her dark roots as well. we're going to put in all of the foils and then color in between to ELIMINATE the warm orange band, otherwise that's going to show through the color.
we’ve SECTIONED her hair into four. she has a very deep part on the right side of her head which we are going to follow for that specific section. we split the back into half and we are going to start at the back and work our way forward.
first we BACKCOMB the hair.
we're going to start at the bottom and leave out the first little section so we're incorporating her dark root color into the foiling pattern.
we are going to turn the brush sideways and FEATHER into the BACKCOMB to create a diffused line. we're also going to STAGGER the amount of dark we have section by section because that's really going to break up the fade from dark to light. this incorporates varying amounts of her natural root which created a diffused BLENDED OMBRE.
the first section was a section left out completely to incorporate all the dark. the second section was was about 1.5 inches away from the root. for the third, we're going to do about 2 to 3 inches away from the root. lastly, the fourth is 4-5 inches away from the root.
we're making sure not to touch any of her PREVIOUSLY LIGHTENED white hair. we want to make sure that we are not getting any bleach on it because it's will DAMAGE the already processed hair.
when we do the COLOR we’re going to go back in and get rid of all of the orange band.
once we’ve hit the o-bone, we incorporate the BACKCOMB and BABYLIGHT technique. first section out a fine babylight weave on the top of the section and clip it away. on the remaining bottom portion of the section, we continue to backcomb in the same way as the previous foils. now pull down the babylight weave.
make sure the bleach extends closer to the root then the bottom backcombed section. this acts as a veil to further diffuse the fade from dark to light. again we want to turn the brush and FEATHER the lightener on. continue to use the same STAGGERING PATTERN for the dark root.
we’re going to continue this process all the way to the top of her head.
we are still incorporating left out sections that use the full amount of her natural root. these sections will not have a backcombed portion, but will still incorporate a BABYLIGHT on top of the section.
we are all set. now we just have the last section.
PRO TIP #1: for every section that we do we want to make sure to RE-MIX the bleach, as it has begun to process. the goal here is to keep the bleach fresh and strong.
Now that we have all the foils in, we are going to go back and COLOR IN BETWEEN the foils to eliminate the orange band. once again we’re starting at the bottom and working our way up.
PRO TIP #2: remember to use your towel to keep your hands clean!
once again, we don’t want a harsh line so make sure to FEATHER the COLOR into the blonde.
now that we have all the foils in and the COLOR applied, we’re going to do a COLD RINSE before removing the foils. this will prevent the dark color from bleeding into the blonde.
this is what it looks like BEFORE TONER.
and the SECOND TONER with CONTINUUM treatment.
we’re all done! we’ve gotten rid of ALL the orange, and incorporated her natural dark root as well.
because we moved her blonde up so much, her hair looks even LONGER than when we started!
