how to COLOR FILL hair

hey guys! today's video is all about a technique known as COLOR FILL, which is sometimes referred to as a tint back. there is a certain process that needs to be followed when taking someone from lighter to darker hair. when there are more than 3 levels of difference, you have to FILL the hair first. when you are lightening you’re taking the color out, but when you are darkening you are trying to put color in.

jessica explained this in depth in the LAW OF COLOR video. check it out here if you need a refresher.

our model has a grown out balayage and her toner is fading. our model wants to end up as a level three.we will walk through the COLOR FILL formula and discuss why it was chosen for this model in order for her to achieve a level 3 color.

PROTIP: filling the hair is EXTREMELY important. your color can turn out muddy or even green tinted without a proper color fill. we want the hair to be saturated and rich. you may have seen someone with a green tint to their hair because they were blonde and a stylist tried to put a brown or black onto it. the color will then fade into that muddy color because it has no anchor or foundation for the color pigment to grab onto.

our COLOR FILL formula

here is our model krissia’s hair before. since she wants to become a level 3 we need to COLOR FILL the lighter sections of hair.

for the FILL formula we chose 5.34 and 4n.

we need to RESTORE the pigments from level 8 to level 3.

jessica chose a regular 4 rather a 4rv. this is because our client doesn't want to end up with a warmer tone. the violet in 4rv is a DOMINANT PIGMENT and it would end up showing through. the 4 jessica has chosen will restore enough warmth so when a level 3 is placed onto it, the level 3 will color PERFECTLY.

here is our model’s hair PROCESSING. you can see it is taking very nicely.

it just needs to sit for 15 then we will WASH and apply the level 3 color.

here is the hair after we rinsed out the fill color. because of the COLOR FILL the hair is colored well as a base for us to put the level 3 color on

applying the LEVEL 3 color

here is the hair processing with the level 3 color APPLIED.

we are ready to rinse and blow dry it out.

STYLING the hair

here is our model after her blow dry. jessica is going to apply nvenn’s ‘blow out kit’ to be sure her hair gets lots of BODY.

the blow out kit includes the nvenn “replenish” strength restoration oil. this oil is INFUSED with vitamin e, argan oil and avocado oil. its designed to fill all the little cracks and creavases in your hair to give it a SMOOTH and SHINY finish.

since our client wants a lot of VOLUME today we are going to use nvenn "volume" heat activated weightless volumizer in place of nvenn “fix”.

the key with ‘volume’ is the break it down around the crown where there is the greatest DENSITY of hair. then work your way through the bottom and down the sides

now, jessica sprays on some nvenn "protect" heat shield. with this you want to be sure you COAT it all over. it puts on a thin barrier to protect from the heat.

then BLOW DRY it out.

now jessica is going to finish her hair with nvenn "smooth" split end sealer and smoothing serum. smooth is an incredible leave in conditioner as it SEALS your split ends.

we actually have a video out coming out next week on SPLIT ENDS, so stay tuned! veronica takes a hair with multiple split ends and she seals it all together using this product.

PROTIP: when using products like this you want to be consistently emulsifying it through using your fingertips. go through each curl individually. smooth is also very good for those pesky FLY AWAYS.

all finished
