ON INSTAGRAM: Lovely "Before & After" with Extensions, Balayage

Karine Herrin, a Master Stylist and Extension Expert at I'm Beautiful Salon in Salt Lake City, Utah, posted this photo of her client on INSTAGRAM and we loved the use of extensions for length and balayage for contrast and a soft ombre.   We contacted her to get her steps, formulas and products used so we could share with you.  Here it is!

 HOW TO:

STEP ONE: All regrowth, which was a natural level 7, was covered using TIGI Copyright Colour with 21 grams of 7/0 and 7 grams of 6/34 with TIGI's 8.5 volume cream developer.

STEP TWO: Next, Karine used TIGI True Light Lightener with TIGI's 20 volume cream developer in diagonal back foiled slices going up both sides of the head.

STEP THREE: Allow to process under heat for 25 minutes.

STEP FOUR: After rinsing out color, while still at the shampoo bowl, Karine balayaged all the ends with True Light Lightener and 30 volume cream developer for about 15-20 minutes.

STEP FIVE: After she was rinsed and dried, Karine put 1.5 rows of Natural Beaded Row Hair Extensions to add body and a little more length. She used Bohyme extension hair, colors 27 and 27/30.

STEP SIX: The style was finished with a 1 inch curling iron.

 Products used: TIGI Hair Reborn Resurgence Shampoo and Conditioner, S Factor Smoothing Lusterizer, Catwalk Sleek Mystique Haute Iron Spray, and Catwalk Session Series Finishing Spray.

HOW-TO: Before and After Using Hairtalk Tape-In Extensions

Alison Alhamed | September 20, 2017

MODERN’s Editor in Chief Alison Alhamed recently cut off quite a bit of length from her over-processed ends, which took her long lengths up to a just-past-the-shoulder lob. Although her number-one goal was a return to healthier hair, the change left her feeling a little uneasy. So she called upon Hairtalk Master Educator Alicia Iannone to transform her balayaged lob with face-framing money pieces into a healthy, bright beige-y blonde that is completely seamless.
