Sometimes I layer my clients shorter in the front and longer in the back. Sometimes, I make their layers shorter in the back and longer in the front.
I created zigzag layers on Hadley because I wanted to give her lots of organic-looking texture. It was 4 “V’s” side by side but here’s a visual of how I created 2 of them.
At first, I thought of just giving her heavy texturizing by relying more on point cutting, slide cutting and other dry cutting techniques. But I remembered a haircut that I did when I was newer. I relied so much on visual and dry cutting to give her the texture she wanted. She looked great after her first appointment. But each time she came back for a trim, I couldn’t find every hair strand and remove 1/2 inch from it. She wanted to maintain the same haircut but she ended up looking different every time. Months later, she her ends got really stringy.
This taught me that no matter how geometric, blunt, organic, or soft a haircut that a client requests, if I approach it technically, I’ll be able to find easily find those sections again, recreate the same exact haircut and deliver consistency.

No shorts cuts were taken here!! 🤪🤘 I used a bit of a different painting pattern than I normally do in the foilayage sections, I created more points of brightness traveling closer to the root area in stead of painting either a V or W pattern. Also my baby light pick up is a bit thicker to allow for the maximum impact of blonde!
We only did a quick 5 minute gloss and a micro root smudge the rest was all lifted to that perfect soft blonde color using @wellahairusa Blondor with 20 Volume in ultra fine sections.

Hand-painted Balayage by @shannonrha 💗
"I started by applying 7/81 @wellahairusa Illumina with pastel developer on her base to cover her grey. Then went through and hand painted using #Blondor with 30 vol. and moved onto 40 vol. with a bond builder as I moved further up her head. After shampooing and towel drying, I used 10/69 and 10/1 #Illumina with pastel developer from her line of demarcation through her ends and lastly toned all over. I finished her off with a dry cut and style."😘 ✨

One of the biggest struggles with fading is the fade going up too high. One of the main reasons for this is where you begin your fade or where you set your guide (referenced as “guideline” in 📸). For example, It would seem that if you're doing a high fade, you would set your guide where a high fade would be, but this isn’t the case. Once you’ve balded or took the hair to skin (below where the guide is), the only place to start your blend is above that guideline, which is why so many end up taking their fade too high.
One of the simplest ways to control your fades is to always set your guide lower than where you want the fade to be. This will leave you an area to focus your blend so it is noticeable (referenced as “fade zone” above). Also, this is how you control your blend. 👌 Some clients want a tighter fade, some like it blurry (a wider spread blend)...The further away you set your guide, the blurrier the blend. The closer you set it, the tighter. Hope this tip helps you be even more #licensedtocreate
