What if I told you...it’s not always about the toner formulas. What if I told you the real money maker...is your 🧠 & a nice clean canvas. What does your canvas look like before you apply your color or toner formulas? What will your canvas look like when your toners start to fade? I was once told that toners aren’t meant to “correct” mistakes, they are meant to add tonality to the hair. Hence the word “toners”, not “correctors”. Quit spending so much time finding the winning toning formula to diminish that golden tone. If you’re wanting to reach a higher level, then you need to lift higher! Toners only work at the level they are lifted to, or higher. Think about it 💖
This is my lovely client Monique. She has natural level 3/4 ethnic hair. She had not been to a hairstylist in over 10 years, due to the fact that she had a horrible experience the ONE time she ever went to a hairdresser. (It happens...sadly enough) Since this incident she had been doing her OWN hair. She came to me for a consultation with butt loads of new growth, a super golden mid shaft, and crispy light ends. Her lightening application took me 3 HOURS! But like I said, it’s where the magic happens! We have a few warm pieces left, but overall we were both stoked with this color correction outcome! 💖 We trimmed her blonde a little, and cut off 4-5 inches of her dark panel underneath to even out her haircut. Along with longer layers and some detailing and internal layering at the end.

It’s been a year since I’ve colored this girl’s hair and it still looks beautiful! That’s the beauty of balayage 👌🏻 I’m still in awe of the longevity my clients get when they compliment their natural color with similar and blended tones.
