Pull up a chair and get comfy cause ima bout to spill some hard truths ๐Ÿ’…๐Ÿป I touched on this yesterday on my story in relation to the impact it had on my clients hair. In the video we can see the contrast between the freshly bleached hair and the huge dark matte staining from a reputable brand.
โš ๏ธ
I got a tonne of questions so Iโ€™ve reposted the video in question (swipe) and given some personal favourites (and hated) brands below, with some guidelines. โ€ข

๐†๐ฎ๐ข๐๐ž๐ฅ๐ข๐ง๐ž๐ฌ;
*Do not use toning shampoo every wash, leave min 2 normal shampoos between.
*Always follow with a deeply moisturising conditioner.
*Silver Shampoo does NOT lighten hair, if youโ€™re finding your blonde dull this will make it worse.
*Damaged hair will grab and stain with any brand. Treat the damage first.

Highlight conversion to bleach up. Is it technically perfect? ๐๐Ž๐๐„, not quite yet. But still a slick af albino fantasy and Iโ€™ll cut any bitch who disagrees ๐Ÿ—ก๐Ÿ—ก
โ€ข
This service is tricky and unless the hair is in immaculate condition getting out all the ribbons of depth/warmth is a risky business. Overlap too much and your life basically wonโ€™t be worth living ๐Ÿ™ƒ
โ€ข
Whatโ€™s cool about this client as she actually listened, then invested in the right home care products and regime. If condition is improved by the next service we can iron out any remaining bands. Great things happen when you listen to your hairdresser ๐Ÿ’‹

Easily the best part of education is watching the people you teach knock their new set of techniques out of the park. (If they can give you a run for your money, you know youโ€™ve done well). Itโ€™s also a great privilege to watch somebodyโ€™s confidence grow.
โ€ข
Check out this huge transformation by @rachelclifford9346 , first time using this new bespoke process. Today was my last visit down to Cork based salons, and as I begin to wrap up #MapPaintRecreate workshops over the next two months itโ€™s been really humbling to a cold emotional vaccum like myself to see the interest and enthusiasm at every workshop. Keep tagging me in your pics I love to see how youโ€™ve been getting on with your new skill sets.

Swipe ๐Ÿ‘‰ sometimes the best thing you can do to reach your hair goals is actually take a step back from colouring and chillll. Focus on condition and let that natural regrowth come down. Remember, this is NOTHING better to work with than natural healthy hair.
โ€ข
Once youโ€™ve completed your stay in colour rehab, you can approach like a blank canvas and crack out a big sexy revamp like this.
โ€ข
Techniques involved; babylights, foiled balayage, split woven panels, toner.

Letโ€™s talk about actual 100% freehand technique, open aired development. This is the service and result I used on this client, pretty sweet right? Is this level of pale blonde achievable for every client using open air/freehand? Absolutely not.
โ€ข
You could argue that building it up over time will get you there, but the root area will never be clean if itโ€™s stubborn to lift hair. Itโ€™s the biggest FAQ I encounter teaching blondes โ€˜how do we get a clean lift near the roots with freehandโ€™. Mostly, unless they are naturally a base 7+ like this client here, you canโ€™t. You need to reconsider the technique, and โ€˜fakeโ€™ the effect with an alternative method.

How juicy is this dusty melt. Weโ€™re on a bit of a journey with @kayleighoreilly_x โ€˜a hair except instead of knowing the destination, weโ€™re on an experimental, driverless train with no maps seeing how far we can go before we crash and explode in a blaze of glory ๐Ÿ”ฅ ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ
โ€ข
For the record sheโ€™s my friend and a fellow hairstylist we can mess around with shit like this ๐Ÿคช Swipe to see the transition so far.
โ€ข
This is the more dramatic application of my elevation technique, bleaching large sections at specific angles to create seamless blend, then merging a deep root over in reverse. We will continue to apply every few months to see how far we can go! Toned using @lorealpro richesse and colourful hair.

Letโ€™s talk Pastels. So hereโ€™s the thing; ๐ญ๐ก๐ž๐ฒ ๐๐จ๐งโ€™๐ญ ๐ฌ๐ญ๐ข๐œ๐ค ๐š๐ซ๐จ๐ฎ๐ง๐ ๐ฅ๐จ๐ง๐ . Often during a consultation Iโ€™m left with a baffled looking girlo who canโ€™t get her head around why sheโ€™d pay hefty ๐Ÿ’ด for something thatโ€™s only going to last a few washes?
โ€ข
The money goes into the ๐‹๐ˆ๐†๐‡๐“๐„๐๐ˆ๐๐† service, not the toning. Most normal civilians arenโ€™t familiar with the intense level of lightening required to get their dreamy dusty shades to sit over, and how much work that is. So before you jump in to one of these palletes ask yourself; Am I happy to enjoy this brief play on colours and then embrace the fade back to a nice clean blonde? If so, ๐๐ž๐š๐๐ฅ๐ฒ! Letโ€™s crack into it and really tailor it to you. Like this delish custom pastel contour on @rusticavacado
โ€ข
๐Ž๐ซ, are you expecting this to last untill your next appointment and wonโ€™t settle for anything less? If the answer is the latter, youโ€™re best off saving yourself some dollar and picking up some hair chalk in Claireโ€™s accessories.

Swipe to see the transformation to end all transformations ๐Ÿ’ฅ Iโ€™ll post formulas and lil process vid during the week. Rarely does a client ask for both an extreme cut AND colour change together, even more rare is it the clients first time sitting in your chair. But thatโ€™s exactly where Lisa was at when she dropped in for a consult but we just got each other, and so here we are ๐Ÿ’…๐Ÿป
โ€ข
This was one of my favourite looks to create, not only for the drama of it all (wouldnโ€™t be like me), but for the many technical hitches that could have plagued are outcome. I absolutely adore a challenge; previous over processed highlights with ribbons of both natural hair and stubborn lowlights intermixed, naturally very dark/warm base, plus curly hair.
โ€ข
So after 6 hours we got our goal ๐Ÿ™Œ it should be noted we could only achieve this result based on the significant amount of damaged taken away, combined with a very meticulous lightnening session that required delicate separation of coloured/non coloured hair and all varying process times. Then matched each undercoat with a corresponding pastel ๐Ÿ˜… โ€ข
All colour @lorealpro, using @framar tools.

Cheeky demo from today, combining techniques old and new to smoke out this build-up of highlights, to a deep root and pearly melt. Lovely intimate little workshop down in Waterford today thanks so much for having me โค๏ธ
