This B&A was approximately 11hrs overall. Having previously colored hair creates a lot of issues when trying to go change your look. Having knowledge on proper technique & products will allow for extreme change without compromising the hair. This technique will also allow for low maintenance and a soft grow out without any harsh lines. Oh but that blend tho👏🏼🙌🏼😍Double tap if you like her modern blonde. 🤗:

Este Antes y Despues se tomo aproximadamente 11hrs. Habiendo tenido el cabello previamente teñido, presenta varios obstaculos al tratar de cambiar tonalidades. Teniendo conocimiento sobre multíple de técnicas y productos adecuados permitirá un cambio extremo sin comprometer el cabello. Esta técnica también permitirá mantener un bajo mantenimiento y un crecimiento suave sin ninguna líneas marcadas al crecer. Doble toque, si te gusta la rubia moderna.👏🏼🙌🏼😍 . . . . . . #512

Lovin the dimension on this blonde! Her hair is naturally about as close to black as you can get. With proper technique & product you can get as bright as possible with minimal maintenance.

Amo la dimensión de esta rubia moderna! Su cabello natural es casi negro. Con técnica adecuada y producto puedes conseguir un tono lo más brillante posible con el mantenimiento minimal. . . #512

This B&A is what I call a . I photograph the hair straight to showcase the seamless blend, double tap if you like her new look. 🤗 This is a result of 3 stacked techniques, which allow for 1)less time in the salon, 2)better economic value and 3)a much softer grow out between visits.

I love skin care and am constantly trying different products from medical grade to over the counter and everything in between. Neutrogena products are phenomenal and the price point is great so when I came across the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Mask I decided to give it a go. I loved the clean scent, creamy gel texture and it has amazing hydration and dries clear. The key ingredient is Hyaluronic Acid which holds 1000% its weight in moisture🤗 hyaluronic acid is also found naturally in our bodies. This mask is wonderful for anyone who has dry skin, if you want to give your skin an extra boost of hydration, or prep your skin for an important event......................................

SIDE NOTE* For years Ive used Sisley Elderflower Hydrating Mask as an overnight or traveling mask, and loved it. Both these masks are virtually identical in scent, texture & efficacy, however IMO the Hydro Boost Gel Mask offers more hydration due to its key ingredient. In any case from $140 to $2.99 its an incredible savings and an Amazing Dupe.

The picture on the left is done by yours truly, the one on the right is not my work.

A Modern Blonde is very soft and diffused vs. Old School Highlights which have a stripe definite lined effect. The reason this is a big deal is the Modern Blonde is actually lower maintenance, because it is diffused you do not see an obvious line of demarcation as its growing out. Conversely due to the placement of a traditional highlight you will see the line of demarcation almost instantly as it grows out meaning you will have to come in more frequently to get it touched up; in addition if the hair is dark this creates a very stark contrast which again looks harsh. So when you show your stylist that pretty soft blonde picture you want, understand that Traditional Highlights will not get you there, Multiple techniques will be required to achieve those looks. Give it a 👍🏼 if you can see the difference😍
*ESPAÑOL* El cuadro de la izquierda es trabajo hecho por mi, el de la derecha no es mi trabajo, ambos son el mismo nivel de oscuridad. Un rubio moderno es muy suave y el color esta difuminado, al contrario de ‘Luces Tradicionales’ estas tienen un efecto mas brusco con raya definida. Un rubio moderno en realidad es menos mantenimiento, al ir saliendo la raiz el color esta difuminado y no se ve una línea obvia de crecimiento.
Sin Embargo con ‘Luces Tradicionales’ es todo lo contrario, debido a la colocación de color la raiz es notable casi instantáneamente, en lo que va creciendo el cabello, esto significa que tendrá que venir con más frecuencia para el retoque; Además, si el pelo es oscuro esto hace un contraste muy fuerte que no luce, nada mas son lineas blacas con negro. Así que cuando le muestren a su estilista aquella imagen rubia bastante suave y difuminada, esten al tanto, que son varios tecnicas que se applican y formas tradicionales no logran esos looks. Oprima 👍🏼 si pueden ver la diferencia 😍

This picture is of the same girl on the same day within 5min apart. No filter, alteration of color or editing of any kind were made. In this picture you can see the extreme difference lighting plays in what you are seeing. This is extremely important to be aware of as your color will appear different depending on the setting you are in. Most indoor lighting will have a yellowish cast to them while natural light has a brighter effect. Like 👍🏼if you thought that was interesting?

*ESPAÑOL* Este cuadro es de la misma chica, en el mismo día dentro de 5min aparte. Esta foto no ha sido alteracion, ni de color ni filtro de ningún tipo. En esta imagen se puede ver la extrema diferencia, que la iluminación juega en lo que uno está viendo. Esto es muy importante tener al consciente, porque su color aparecerá diferente dependiendo de la ambiente/iluminacion en la que se encuentra. La mayoría de la iluminación interior tendrá un tono amarillento mientras que la luz natural tiene un efecto más brillante. Que les parece eso? Opriman el👍 si pensaste que este tema era halgo interesante?


Not everything you see is real. This is a perfect example of how playing with filters/camera settings/ photoshop, can alter your perspective vs what is reality.

A Modern Blonde, requires different techniques other than traditional highlights. Attention to detail is needed with knowledge of color application. Even though this is Lighter & Brighter than her original color this will be lower maintenance. . . . . . . #512

Traditional “Highlights “ are a thing of the past. Achieving a Softer more Diffused look, requires other techniques. Multiple techniques were used to create this ‘Modern Blonde’. You can see it has an Organic and Natural look to it. Even though this is Lighter & Brighter than her original color this will be lower maintenance. . . . . . . #512

Look at this Gorgeous Red for the 🍂🍁Fall🍂🍁!! Can you believe its not Permanent😳😱This product has so much pigment and so much shine. Its also a great treatment for the hair. A Demi color is a great way to play with tones and change up your blondes without the commitment. This was a customized Red with Copper and Gold to enhance her complexion.


Color in Motion!! My neice doing the Most with her commercial ready hair😉Look at that Uhhhhh-Mazzzzzing ✨SHINE✨tho👏🏼🙌🏼😍! This is what the Latest Technology in haircolor looks like, rich pigment for beautiful and customized tones. Conversely so, this is what detailed technique looks like, micro thin veils of color that create a natural and soft canvas of luxurious locks! As stated previously, because this is detailed color placement, as it grows out she will have minimal maintenance.

These B&A’s show the subtle shift in color which is a great introduction to color for my sweet neice . As this grows out the tone will shift and evolve on its own and the maintenance will be minimal. @ The University of Texas at Austin

This B&A is a 1st of Introduction to Color for this young lady. This is a very soft & subtle diffusion of color, it will also require minimal maintenance. This is a result of layered technique & great products.

“Highlights” have come a long way! Constant evolution of technique creates the New. Her Highlights were done 5mos ago, as you can see her color still looks good and no harsh lines or stripes. The way her color was applied allows for a Softer Growing out which in turn creates less maintenance. Education, Technique & Tools always create Beautiful Looks!


You can see the very fine detail work here. This technique is time consuming but it ensures a very natural look from the start as well as while its growing out all with minimal maintenance. I use very low strength to develop the color and this protects the hair, maintaining its integrity.

Is it the Cut? Or is it the Color? Its A Perfect Harmony that make the transition from little girl into young lady. Its the details and the placement of color that brighten the skin, and the cut layers that accentuate her bone structure! Its a Halo with sheer veils of color. This N**e Blonde is Everything!

I love being a part of new experience in a young womans life. Ive know this young lady since she was 3mos old and now at 15 shes discovering her own sense of style and fashion. We took her naturally gorgeous hair and gave her baby veils of brightness in a halo placement. This N**e toned blonde looks very natural and the maintenance will be minimal.
