Q: How can I use fewer foils and still have color with impact?
A: "Quality over quantity is the rule, even in foil placement," says Scruples Educator Amy Williamson. "Assess the client’sâ needs and place the foils with a purpose. It’s your job to confidently give your professional opinion as to how many foils it will take to achieve the best results.âWhether a client needs highlights on top of her head to expand visual length to her face shape or needs lowlights on top to diminish a long narrow face, strategically placing fewer foils to work with those needs can make as much of an impact as a full head of highlights. Less really is more, and sometimes, 15 foils can make a stronger statement than 100 foils."
