Foil-ayage for a Natural Ash Blonde Tone

Anne Moratto | July 9, 2016 | 7:00 AM

Here is a terrific explanation and illustration of "foil-ayage" from @katieclairedoeshair on Instagram.

"Look at this beauty! If you're wondering what a foil-ayage looks like, look no further. This cute mama came in wanting to be blonder. When people want low maintenance but a higher lift, foil-ayge is a perfect route to take. Foils = higher lift. Balayage = low maintenance. Foil-ayage = PERFECT." (Editor's note: We used 'perfect' but she used a much cuter emoji to express herself here.)

FORMULA:

1. Foiled using @redken5thave Flash Lift with @Olaplex and balayaged after every 2-4 foils using @pravana Pure Lights with @olaplex.

2. She processed at room temperature and then we toned with Redken 10AB & 12AV (to even out the blondes) and then glazed over that with SEQ 9P, 9N & 9T.

"So in love with that shine (thanks @olaplex!) and that natural ash blonde tone."

MAKEOVER: Basic Blonde To Purple/Lilac Melt

Maggie Mulhern | February 9, 2017

Marianne Lohr (@mannie_mak), a freelance artist based in Bethlehem,PA., says "My new client came in to see me because she was never happy with her blonde and how gold/yellow it was. She wanted to be an all over platinum blonde at first, but then had mentioned how she's always wanted to have purple hair. Her dream came true that day." Details here.
