Brown Hair with Blonde Highlights (Hair Tutorial) Paint Between the Foils

Watch this Video Tutorial.....

When I first started doing hair and I had a client who had grey, someone that wanted to go darker or lighter with highlights on top of that....I would color the whole head and then go back and foil in highlights in after.  That was a lengthy unnecessary process.

First of all, you are damaging the hair.  You are coloring it dark only to go back and recolor it with bleach.  Secondly, you are wasting time.  You have to wait for processing time twice and shampoo out twice and so on and so forth.....

The best and most efficient way is to apply your highlights with foils and then paint your all-over color in between the foils.  This is tricky to learn at first, but after you do it a few times, you wonder why you weren't doing it this way all along.

How to do a Rope Braid, Simple, Easy, Basic

Watch this Video Tutorial.....

I really like this braid.   I braid my daughter's hair like this all the time at night time before bed, so her hair won't tangle up while she sleeps.  It's so easy to do once you get the trick to it.

You take 2 sections of hair and twist them one way.  Then you take those 2 pieces and wrap them around each other in the opposite direction.  

This is a picture of my daughters hair.

You can do little rope braids all over or just one or two braids.  :)

How to Cut and Blend I-Tip Hair Extensions (Part 2)

Video Hair Tutorial.....

This is at the second tutorial of a 2 part series.  The first video tutorial I created was How to do Hair Extensions, Stand by Stand, I-Tip with Micro-beads.

In this video tutorial I cut and textured the hair extensions so it would be hard to tell where the extensions start and where the real hair begins.  I first started off with cutting the desired length.  Then I did some point cutting and texturing with my scissors.  Then I used my razor to finish off the blending.  

I find the razor does a really good job at blending in the hair.  You basically slide down the hair and the razor does most of the work.   You have to be careful not to put too much pressure on the hair when you are using the razor or you may cut too much.

How to do Hair Extensions, Strand by Strand, I-Tips with Micro-Beads (Part 1)

Watch this Video Tutorial…..

This is the first video of a 2 part series.  The second Video Tutorial is on How to Cut and Blend Your I-tip Hair Extensions.

It took me a while to get the hang of doing hair extensions.  First, I really had to decide what I was going to work on.  It was either learn how to glue them in or to use the micro-beads.  I decided to go with the micro-beads, because it's supposed to be less damaging on he hair.   The beads that I prefer to use have silicone inside the bead to protect the hair.

It also took me a while to get used to balancing everything without dropping things on the floor.  Just like when you first start cutting hair, you are constantly dropping the comb and the scissors, clips, etc,  you have to learn how to get the rhythm of applying the hair extensions.

The longer the difference between the real hair and the hair extensions, the more difficult it is to blend.   However in most cases, you can easily add a few inches and it will blend in just fine and appear very natural.  It will also appear thicker and fuller because of the extra hair that you have added in.

You can add more extensions for thicker and less for thinner hair results.

In the Hair Extension Video Tutorial that I created, we only added a few inches, so you can't see the difference at all.

Here are a few pictures of the hair extensions that I have applied with the Micro-Beads.

How to do Low-lights and Highlights, Foiling, Weaving and Slicing

Watch this Hair Tutorial Video…..

Low-lights and Highlights is a great way to introduce a new client to color.  It is a subtle and it blends without the line of demarkation.  

I like to intermix the different techniques of weaving and foiling, depending on where on the head the foil is.  You can do more slicing with larger sections in the back and weave more finer sections in the front.  Most of the time I do sort of a weave / slice combo.

Hope you enjoy!
