Ombré Color Correction
Now this color correction/Ombré done on my gorgeous client Daniella, was a tough one! She had not had a cut or color in over a year, which you can only imagine how her hair must have felt!
More than her hair being damaged, it was just plain dehydrated! Yet, Daniella came in for a miracle and I did my best to give her the ultimate Latina make over, by taking her to a level seamless 7N/A!
Redken Flash Lift
Wella Color Charm Demi
Mix : 3 oz of Redken flash lift with 4oz of 30 volume developer, adding 1/8th of Olaplex step 1. Mix together with a whisk, making sure it is mixed well.
Dry cutting, by taking off at least 4 inches of length, adding layers, and texture through out to eliminate weight and product use, allowing to begin on a new canvas.
Section the hair into 4equal parts
Beginning from top left, taking 1/4 inch slices, I teased the sliced hair from new growth to about two & half inches down, applying lightener, from the teased parts saturating down to ends in foil, to create seamless Ombré effect.
Continuing the same effect onto the left side beginning from the top.
Taking 1/4 inch slices starting from the top of the back sections, teasing the slice hair from new growth to about two & half inches down applying lightener, from the teased parts saturating down to ends in foil.
You will follow slicing, and teasing technique through this entire process.
Mix wella color charm demi 4n
2oz with equal parts 10volume developer.
Apply only from new growth and the teased hair that is left out of the foil.
Allow lightener and demi to process for at least 10 minutes and the last 5minutes process under low heat.
Removed all the foils and completely rinse hair with NO SHAMPOO.
Brush teased hair completely out and dry hair until it's about 70% dry
Mix Wella Color Charm Demi
2 oz of 6N with equal parts 10volume
Mix Wella Color Charm 2oz of 7N and 2 oz of 7A, with equals parts 10 volume
Section hair into 4 equal sections
Taking horizontal, 1/4 inch slices, Apply 6N from the beginning of the new growth of the (blonde) Ombré, to down to two and half inches, apply this method 6N throughout all sections throughout the hair working very quickly, then going back taking horizontal sections applying 6N ONLY on new growth of (blonde) Ombré down two inches.
This will create your blend from the natural level 4 new growth to level 6 beginning of Ombré!
Hair should still be sectioned off into 4 sections with the 6N application still processing,
Apply mixture of 7N / 7A, taking 1/4 inch horizontal slices applying from the end of the 6N , down to ends of hair!
Bring client to the shampoo bowl and massage hair with toner still intact making sure it it's heavily saturated, processing for about 7-8 minutes in shampoo bowl.
This will also create your seamless Ombré blend!
Rinse hair with no shampoo thoroughly, apply 3oz of Olaplex step 12. From new growth to ends, using a wet brush.
Process for at least 10-15min with a processing cap. No heat.
