Kimemily Pham (@excellenthairsalon), a hairstylist, makeup artist, and an esthetician at Excellent Hair Salon and Spa Inc., Fremont, CA., is devoted to advanced education and upping her skills. "I am so very passionate about my work. In order to keep up with the trends, demands, and needs of my clients, I take private coloring and cutting classes, attended many hair, makeup, and skincare shows all over the states, watch you tube and constantly on Instagram looking for inspiration. I literally breath, eat, and sleep hair." Well, it has paid off for client Jennifer who "came to me for the first time wanting to change up her long grown out ombre hair. Something Lighter but yet more natural looking."

Here Pham shares the HOW TO:

I started in the back working toward the front. I ombre, balayage her hair, a combination of free hand painting and fine thin weaves for a blended look.
