Greetings, to to all! Got a haircolor video to share! I’m so forgetful when it comes to taking a photo of the final look! I promise I’m going to do better!
I lifted her roots to a level 6/7 and refreshed her red color using two parts #Igora L-89 and one part #Chi 8RR with 30 volume. I rodded her with red, yellow and pink perm rods for a tight long lasting curl. Check it out! I hope you like!
Hello, lovelies! This past week has been a busy one for me! As soon as I returned from my trip to Florida for the wedding, I packed up my portable salon equipment and headed to Augusta. I have some great clients there and I always go back to provide my services! Here is another beautiful head of natural hair that I got the chance to style.
When I am busy doing hair I often get carried away with the process and forget to take pictures. I am getting better with it! It can also get a little time-consuming and I like to get my clients in and out of the chair as quickly as possible.
I placed some color in random areas to give her a nice pop of color. I blended a copper color with a medium blond to give her a nice rich golden brown color in her highlights. I followed with a nice trim and a spiral set using a combination of flexi rods and perm rods. I set her hair with Paul Mitchell Sculpting Lotion.
I truly feel for my clients when they have to sit under the dryer. It is something I have always tried to avoid doing and am so impatient with. Her hair was so thick so it was taking forever for it to dry!
The finished result was nice spiral set. You can se her highlights a little bit in these pictures. I wish I could have gotten a better shot but this better than I usually do!
I always enjoy my time with my clients when I got o Augusta and always look forward to going back!
Greetings! Many of you who know me know that I am a simple, afro-wearing girl. I love to do other people’s hair but do not always have the patience for my own. I decided that this year I would try a lot more things with my hair and I am excited to share those things with you! The style I am wearing this week is a fauxhawk set with perm rods!! I always veered away from rods setting my hair because I felt like it would be too time consuming and I despise sitting under the dryer!!!
I started with freshly deep conditioned and trimmed hair! I t-shirt blotted my hair, applied some leave-in and braided 3 cornrows on one side and 2 on the other. I wanted more slant on one side. 😉
I mixed a few pumps of Nairobi foam wrap with water to dampen my hair if it got too dry during the wrapping process. I used a small dab of Eco Styler to smooth the frizzy areas and fly aways during wrapping as well.
I rolled the first section of hair in my bang area with the smaller white rods for a tighter curl in the front and began with the purple then peach ones.
Wrapping didn’t take as long as I anticipated. I didn’t have to be anywhere until lunchtime so I happily let them dry overnight. The fact that I did not wrap them soaking wet aided in the quicker drying process.
I initially fell asleep on the sofa without wrapping my hair, but before I got in bed I wrapped it up. I just knew my hair was going to be super frizzy but it was fine. It even inspired my little “freestyle” on the way to work. The next morning, I checked a few rods and they were completely dry. I sat under the hair dryer set at low for 15 minutes to help set the curl in. I let it cool for another 15 minutes and then began to take them down.
Here are the final results! I will be doing this more often! It’s quick and will last me until my next cleansing and is low maintenance! I am all for that!
