In a time where everyone wants balayage, foils are not dead! In fact they provide the heat conduction that is sometimes necessary to achieve the color you are looking for. Carli Ambrose (@lowlightsandleopard), Goldwell educator, Unicorn Tribe Member and artist at the Jonathan Williams Salon and Spa Provincetown, MA, shares the details for this makeover:

Step 1: Take traditional foil sections but adjust application technique to create a more "lived in" look by not bringing the lightener all the way to the root. Brush is placed vertically to create a softer line. Apply Goldwell Oxycur Platin and 20 volume developer.

Step 2: In between foils utilize a back combing technique before applying Goldwell OP and 40 volume. Apply using the back of the hand to paint on color.

Step 3: Process for 20-30 minutes then shampoo and lightly condition with Goldwell Dual Senses for Blonde and Highlighted Hair.

Step 4: Towel dry then apply Elumen Clear for Extreme Shine and Condition. Process 30 minutes and then shampoo and condition.

So with protection and hair health being the two key benefits of the additive, she was all in.
