6.1 with 20 volume for a little grey coverage/melt. Lightener with 30V for the sliced highlights. 7NB and 7V Shades eq lowlight. Toned with 10VV shades. I love to level up with my lowlights. (As in not use the same level 6 I used on her base) It still creates a ton of dimension but not too much contrast. ✨ @hairmeroar
| s w i p e | 👉🏼 once to see a time lapse of me doing my double weave and tease technique using @joico Blonde Life lightener + 20vol to add more dimension to this beauty and 👉🏼👉🏼 twice for the before.
As you can see in the video and before picture, she has some pretty fresh highlights which were done by me. I clearly underestimated the density of her hair and didn’t add enough brightness to blend her previous color. She was also my last appointment of the day and I skipped out on a needed shadow root. She liked it when she left (or did she? 🤔), but I wasn’t satisfied. The next morning, I reached out and asked her if she would be willing to come in and let me redo her hair; I was completely honest and told her exactly what I mentioned ☝🏼 above ☝🏼. I also asked if she would be willing to let me shoot some content to share on social media. She agreed, and here we are.
Some people say, it doesn’t matter what you think about the work as long as the client is satisfied. I disagree. If I know something needs to be added or changed, I will always speak up and be completely honest about the situation. And what if the client wasn’t satisfied and lied? I used to be that person; I avoided any type of conflict at all costs. I’ve learned to speak up over the years, but know that some people are that way. Clients appreciate honesty; that fake it til you make it stuff is a joke! When I spun the chair around to reveal Take 2 on my client, her face lit up, telling me this was way better than what I did the first time.
Sometimes less is more!! This beautiful girl wanted something low-maintenance with more depth/dimension. So I worked with what she had & instead of lightening her hair, I did a reverse balayage using 3 different color glosses. This is a great way for blondes to go “darker” for the colder months ahead. Her hair looks & feels so much healthier!! Bleaching is not always necessary, work smarter not harder!! 💗 #colorbyjennifermalloy@peterdelucasalon 💫
It’s that time of year again! Fall makeovers are happening left and right over here! Blondes are wanting a softer grow out with a subtle tone change, meaning not as bleached out from the sun. Brunettes are wanting a warmer richer tone! What will be your look for fall?? 🍁
