This is this beautiful girl's 3rd session! She came in with overlapping colors with hues of red and orange, and compromised textured. It has been so tricky to lift her with maintaining the integrity of her hair. We are LOVING where it's at now. Beautiful lived-in Balay ⭐

Not gonna lie I’m kinda digging the white hair. Should I keep it? 🤔

8.5 hours. Start to finish. Yes, you read that right. 8.5 flipping hours.
This is one of those situations I lost my freakin mind thinking I could achieve this in the 5 hours allotted with all the roadblocks in front of me, it was a lofty goal to say the least.
She has an absolute absurd amount of hair with Level 2 permanent professional color for grey coverage. Video coming.
Her foils lifted unevenly and I had to go back in 3 separate times to reapply on the midshaft where it was the most stubborn.
I’m happy with her results and so was she.
I used an entire 2 lb bucket of @oligopro Extra Blonde Lightener.. yup. The whole damn thing plus an entire bottle of @trionicshaircare 50 volume developer.
I alternated Babylights with tease foils and had to keep stopping to check her progress. Some the roots were done and the ends so i pulled off the Lightener on those sections and had to reapply the midsection 2-3 times on almost every foil even the Babylights because of the amount of color on her hair.
Let me be clear. Lifting through permanent color is a nightmare. Even professional color. Especially at this depth. (Almost black) All of these people who see this and say .. See??? She did it!! Yes, I did but it took my entire day. I also screwed myself on the price because I quoted her before we began. Don’t get me wrong, it was expensive by most people’s standards but she wasn’t charged for my entire day or the 2 extra hours I stayed to finish her. It’s my error so I ate it. This is why consultantion is so important. I’m not sure where my head was when I was figuring this out because I grossly underestimated everything about this. I’m a person of my word and it’s not fair to blindside her when she asked before we began so I ate it.
Root Melt @schwarzkopfusa Igora Vibrance 6-0, 6-12 6 volume
Face frame toner. 9-1
Toner for the rest of her hair 8-11 & 9-1
I had Olaplex in every step.
Fun fact about me - I’ve studied the Spanish language since 7th grade & actually minored in Spanish in college 🤓 I studied abroad in Spain for 6 weeks and it was the closest thing I ever became to fluent after being immersed in the language (started even dreaming in Spanish 🤣) I’m a little rusty now a days speaking, but I love to practice when I travel just for fun 😄 “Pueblo Bonito” actually means beautiful village or beautiful town & it is just that 🙌🏻🙌🏻 flowers, palm trees, sandy beaches... doesn’t get much better than that mis amigos! 🌴 // romper + shoes are from @thepinklilyboutique & are SO fun!
