Kid Color: The Compromise

Maggie Mulhern | October 16, 2014 | 9:00 PM

Jillian LeDonne (@therealjillybean), a colorist at the Eva Scrivo Salon in NYC, has the most interesting client. 10 year old Eden says “Do whatever you want,” but her NOT 10 year old father says “Just keep it off the scalp.” The compromise has been an ever changing, ombre for the past 2 years. (Does Eden sound like a future professional?).

The most recent neon lime is LeDonne’s favorite “so far.”

Here she offers the HOW TO:

Step 1: Pre-lighten below the occipital using a balayage technique with L’Oreal Professionnel Platinium with 40 volume developer.

Step 2: Process under heat for approximately 30 – 40 minutes, lifting to level 10.

Step 3: Shampoo, condition and dry.

Step 4: Apply to the pre-lightened area: Pravana Vivids Neon Yellow and Neon Green (equal parts).

Step 5: Process with low heat for 30 minutes. Rinse until the water runs clear and then light shampoo and condition.

 

TIPS TO SHARE WITH THE CLIENT TO MAINTAINING COLOR:

-Do not shampoo for 48 hours.

-Use cool water for both shampoo and rinsing.

-Use a professional, color safe shampoo.

From Foiled and Damaged To Luscious Red

"This client had been doing full foils for years, and her hair showed it," says Tiffinie Morton (@hairbytiffinie). "We had been working on getting her hair healthier and decided to try something new. She initially wanted to go to a warm level 5 but I talked her into trying this to ease her into being darker since she had been blonde for so long." Details here.
