Can you tell us a little bit about your client's hair?

Her hair is naturally base 6, Caucasian, 8 months postpartum hair which has been box dyed and previously been bleached. It was once straight hair but now has a strong wave.

What did you discuss during the consultation?

After having a baby we needed to create something that was easy to manage : - so that she could comfortably tie it up,something that wouldn't show up a re-growth quickly and a look that would make her feel more glamorous and feminine with a sun-kissed summer look A full consultation was given, we did a strand test, elasticity test and then patch test was applied before her hair was done in salon.

How did you achieve the look?

  • Firstly cutting the hair in to the basic shape.
  • Applying 6.1 3% and deep colour complex to all the middle lengths and ends followed by 6gemma4 3% deep colour complex on all the root area.leaving to take for 30 minutes,washing off with colour maintainer shampoo and deep colour maintainer balm leaving for 5 mins,after rinsing and applying leave in conditioner before combing then drying into shape.
  • Applying full head foils with a mixture of fine, medium and thick highlights with a balayage effect. We applied milk_shake® Sunlight Cream with milk_shake® 6% activating emulsion and Safe Lightener Complex on the mid-lengths
  • milk_shake® Sunlight Cream with milk_shake® 3% activating emulsion and milk_shake® Safe Lightener Complex on the ends of each individual foil. After around 35 minutes the colour was rinsed. The result was to the perfect lightness but with a slight amber tone.
  • Using my favourite toner milk_shake® creative 10.1, I mixed with milk_shake® Deep Colour Complex and milk_shake® 3% activating emulsion, I applied to towel dried ends and left for a further 10 mins.
  • milk_shake Colour Booster System_EN3After washing and conditioning with milk_shake® Silver Shampoo and treating with milk_shake® Deep Colour Maintainer Balm, I combed through with milk_shake® Leave In Conditioner.
  • I applied milk_shake® Whipped Cream and a little milk_shake® Argon Oil, to the mid lengths and ends.
  • I then cut into a blunt long bob with a few fine fine layers before styling and straightening
  • The look wash finished with milk_shake® Eco Hairspray (my favourite)
