MAKEOVER: Balayage For A Pixie Pick-Me-Up
Hollie Schacherl (@moonstoned.beauty) of Path Salon, Austin, Texas, loves collaborating with clients that are adventurous with their style.
"I am most inspired by people who disregard the standard of what's considered beautiful and instead like to explore new and different ways to express beauty. Olivia is a stylist at Path as well (@lunaballooncloud). She cuts my hair, in fact. We have been friends for years and love experimenting with new looks on each other, but she had never been blonde and has been toying with the idea for a while. She is fearless when it comes to trying new styles."
Here, Schacherl shares the how-to on natural level 4 Olivia:
Step 1: Balayage with Wella Freelights with 40 volume. Process at room temperature for 40 minutes. Rinse and towel dry.
Step 2: Tone darker pieces with Wella Color Touch 7/81 with 6 volume.
Step 3: Tone the lighter pieces with equal parts 8/81 and 8/0 with 6 volume. Process for 15 minutes and then rinse.
