Do you ever have that client that you’ve been doing a level 4 on for a few years and one day she comes in and says she wants to go BLONDE 😳.....PLEASE Make sure that you are having the conversation with him/her explaining the lightening process. It is our job as professionals to educate our guests on what to expect during the lightening process. And it it is our job to protect the integrity of the hair! For this #creamsoda blonde I used foiling and balayage techniques utilizing @kenraprofessional Simply Blonde Blue Powder Lightener and Kenra Clay Lightener! I also utilized @olaplex every step of the way! 💪🏼 What’s your favorite Kenra lightener for 💁🏻 to 💁🏼?
This was actually a really hard picture to try to grab but @lisa.manthei was a good sport! 😂 the lighting isn't the best but the ring light kept bouncing a shine line across the picture from the hair clip, though I thought it'd be fitting since her hair's kinda like a midnight sky 😍🌙 #hairstyliststruggles

When I was in hair school many moons ago lol we had a
@certifiedhaircolorists come in and break it all the way down. I was so inspired by that moment I added this to my goal list. Needless to say color was and still is a journey I'm on. It took me years after becoming a stylist to finally go for it. I was a bucket of nerves the day of exam by the end of the day my brain was mush and I just cried lol 😫😱. In my opinion it was like taking the "bar exam" for color. Shit was not easy! There was no brand attached, what is attached is your knowledge and expertise as a colorist. Understanding the fundamentals first then applying them to advanced situations. Nothing in life comes easy and this sure as hell didn't. It made me a stronger stylist and instilled in me a standard that I hold near and dear to me. Thank you @certifiedhaircolorists I am so grateful to be a part of an amazing network! 🙌🏾 (I had to re-mat her for the new space ❤️) #certifiedhaircolorist#americanboardcertifiedhaircolorist#abch#haircolorist#hairstylist#nytocali#downtownschenectady#electriccity#hairsalon#rdbeautystudio
