Communication with Clients is Key to Hitting a Home run each Time.
Trust yourself. Listen to what problems the client is communicating or order to solve the problem. Remember they don’t do hair so often times when they say things like “I want to be blonder “, what they mean is I want less yellow in my hair. Some clients will say they want cooler tones but what they really want is neutral tones. Throwing a tonner all over will only mask the problem for a week or two. When I look at hair color I try not to over think things. take each section one step at a time. This way you are not stuck to an overall plan if things don’t go perfectly the way you planned. For example step one for me would be… They want lighter highlights but they also have grays. I start with highlights then quickly move to the base color. after the base is almost done depositing I add the lowlights in order to give it dimension without taking the color too dark.
Your goal with hair color should be to problem solve one step at a time a create the best possible outcome as you go.
