This is a third appointment of a back to back foiled service to achieve lightness. As the client has now got to a high level of lift we then applied an icy demi gloss toner to gfet the desired look. Botanical repair shampoo was used to maintain moisture and protein levels. Finished with a blowdry in a tousled wave style

After being a blond all summer this lady decided to embrace her natural colour again. Firstly, we had to pre pig the hair then apply a permanent tint all over for full lasting coverage. For extra shine we applied a demi gloss toner. Still showing the shine, the bottom photo was taken 8 weeks later during a touch up appointment

‘From long to short’. I love all aspects of cutting and colouring. This client came in for a major restyle. we first removed lots of length and then completed a natural, lived in balayage. Finished with a root melt toner and set in place with the Dyson’s cold shot setting to close the cuticle of the hair follicles.
