Jamie Pressman, (@hairmeroar), is a stylist in North Haven, CT. Her feed features beautiful work, often accompanied by a “how-to” and an explanation of her process. In this post, she even took time to circle and point-out the areas she had to correct to transform these minor goofs into major glam.
“Breaking down the game plan; this sweet client came to me yesterday with some brassy, uneven balayage," Jamie says. "There were three issues we were addressing during this first session together.”
First step: “She had some greys to cover so I went in with 5N and 5NW Redken Shades EQ on her regrowth.
Second step: “Next we had to address placement of the highlights. They were also very splotchy. I went in with Scruples Clay and 40 volume, surface painting over the highlights while bringing them up higher.
Final step: “Lastly, we addressed tone. I glazed with 9V, 9P and a pinch of 9B shades to cool down unwanted brass.”
But Jamie is quick to point out that a lot of the work (“the major lightening”) was done before she came into see her. “This was not a huge corrective color by any means. This was an example of small tweaks making a big impact.”
