Kimemily Pham (@excellenthairsalon) of the Excellent Hair Salon & Spa, Fremont, California met with "Veronica who was in desperate need of a color correction," she says. "She had a 2 inch band of natural level 3 out growth, the mid shaft was a reddish brown color, and her ends were fried blotchy blonde." Pham's goal was to make her a tasteful blonde using the combination of highlights and balayage techniques. Here she offers the HOW TO on natural level 3 Veronica:
St ep 1 : Micro weave the hair using Matrix Light Master blended with 30 volume developer.
Step 2 : Go in between with the same formula and balayage.
Step 3 : On the ends apply Iso Iluminate clear + activator + Moroccanoil on the blonde.
Step 4 : Process for 40 minutes and then rinse and dry the hair completely.
Step 5: Ap ply the base color: Matix Socolor 6N + 10 volume developer.
Step 6: While the base is processing, mix two shades, in separate bowls, to be used as toner: A: Iso Iluminate 8N + activator. B: Kenra demi color 8N + 9PV + 9vl developer
Step 7: Alternate toners throughout the hair, overlapping the base color just a bit. Finger smudge the base color and the toner together.
Step 8: Process for 15 minutes and then shampoo and condition the hair.
