I never really do a #Tbt but this was one of my favourite colours of all time. Hard to believe this was over a year ago.

This was my creative presentation for the @lorealpro colour specialist degree, drawing inspiration for statement gradient patterns. The challenge here was developing a palette that contrasted against itself just enough to stand out while staying similar in tone, and then getting it to flow seamlessly. It nearly ended me but listen 🤷🏻‍♂️

Why be a just a brunette, when you can be a-
𝓑𝓻𝓾𝓷𝓮𝓽𝓽𝓮 💋

Swipe for before; making the most of that previously lightened hair by laying on some nice contrasting depths.

Details.
Lil close up of that sweet sweet blend. It’s a little trickier on shorter hair because the shape of the cut also comes into it but sure look, we love a challenge. •

Stone. Cold. 💀
Arctic tones for the iciest bitch I know 🌬️

I’ll throw the formula and technique up at some stage during the week. It might surprise you, cause it sure as hell surprised me. Though it’s an absolute pit of technical sin ☠️

Honestly, I’m still not sure why there are balloons there? 🎈
Anyway,
Been playing around a lot with using the different textures in colours and get some pretty sweet results. I.e laying a direct colour against an oxidising. Or an opaque colour against a translucent tone.
The contrast is actually pretty overlooked and kinda takes the hair to another dimension when you get the hang of it. .
Here I used some hella vibrant purple bled down into some really diluted dusty blues. The way the two sit against each other add such a cool pop. Thanks as always @rusticavacado for donating your head to science xx

Ok forget about the hair for a sec; how 𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐧.𝐡𝐮𝐧 is @missgeraghty. Not even a scrap of makeup and hungover to within in inch of her tender life.

Then secondly I am infatuated with this colour combo. Using a deep mauve blonde base I diffused into scattershot iridescence. It’s actually a little lighter in real life but I’m not complaining how the camera picked it up 💁🏻‍♂️ polished off with a sharp triangle bob ✂️ .

Something I’ve been focusing a lot on lately is the concept of negative space and how we can apply it to hair colouring.

In art, negative space is the area around the subject left blank which contributes to the shape. Translated to hair; it’s the hair we leave out.

We focus so much on the shapes and sections on the hair we actually colour, it’s so easy to overlook the impact we want the natural hair to contribute. Arguably I think this is more important, because once it’s gone, it’s gone. •
With this freehand colour, I worked backwards. Instead visualising the natural hair I wanted to leave out first, the shading around it. What I got was some sweet dimension that really highlights how important sometimes ‘less is more’. Try it 🤓

Lil Bleach hack; 🤓
Firstly let’s take a moment drink in this process porn 🤤

When doing long regrowth/virgin head/conversion bleach we all know the mid lengths/ends have to be taken care of first. If you don’t get out of my class room. 👋

This is relevant everywhere on the head EXCEPT for the very hairline. Omit these crappy hairs no matter what length from your initial application. Then apply the same time as you merge onto the root. Why? This hair is already oxidised environmentally, is much finer and will lift v quick. It’s also hella weak. Only on super dark (base 4 and below) hair this won’t work.

Try this out and your clients and their (still intact) hairlines will thank you. •
