Before & After: Color & Cut Refresh

Chop chop! Can I just say this as a hair stylist and hope it translates the right way? If your hair is past your bra strap it probably isn’t doing anything for you. And by anything for you I don’t actually mean that, however, it could be doing MORE for you. Depending on texture and density, of course, you may benefit from taking your hair up several inches to sit around your shoulders. Your hair will still be long but when styled it looks fuller and thicker because you’re keeping the healthiest parts of your hair still. By the time your hair grows out to a length in the mid back region there is a very strong chance the ends are not as thick and it can look a little dead/wispy. Case in point with this client’s before and after below. We cut off 6+ inches to give her a healthy, manageable length that still does everything super long hair can do but looks, in my opinion, WAY better!

Mermaid Balayage

You know you’re truly passionate about something when a scenario like this sits in your chair. A client came to me with immensely long, thick, strong and healthy hair. She wanted to go lighter overall but maintain her natural color blend so it would grow out nicely. With hair this long and thick, you can expect at LEAST a 3.5 hour+ appointment for proper application and processing. Some stylists would be like “oh $hit this is going to take forever”, and hey, it does, lol but I literally love doing hair color and couldn’t wait to get started. I gave her sun kissed,  beige and golden toned blonde highlights through a technique of balayage and tipping. The result is so new and natural.
