From "Dip Dye" to Lovely Dimensional Brunette Lob

Heidi Turner (@heidi.locks)  is a member of the Sunlights Artisan Team under the direction of Candy Shaw working at Salon Revelation, Dana Point, CA.  "I enjoy education so much and love the art of balayage and creating natural lived in hair color!"

This client came to Turner with dipped in bleach on all of her ends, desiring something shorter and darker. Turner got busy with color after cutting a textured bob with internal layers.

Step 1: Deepen her own natural level 5 base color with Redken Shades EQ 4N.

Step 2: Balayage with Sunlights Balayage clay based lightener plus 40 volume. Add lowlights using Shades EQ 6G+6N at the same time, separating sections with "balay wrap."

Step 3: Process for 20 minutes and then rinse.

Step 4: Tone Redken 6N with Olaplex mixed in. Apply over all the hair and process for 20 minutes. Rinse and apply Olaplex #2 for 10 minutes. Shampoo and condition the hair.
