|Types of colouring techniques
BALAYAGE / GREY COLOUR
||Customer wanted a long-lasting colour with good lustre. Style-wise, she specifically requested for highlights, gradation style colour, and grey colour.
|Advice from the stylist
||Grey colours usually involve lightening of the hair in the first step of the colouring procedure, which tends to place a lot of stress on the hair. As such, I mainly advised her on how to choose the appropriate shampoos and treatments for post-colouring home care.
|Customer's thoughts on the outcome
||She was happy with the outcome, as the resulting colour matched her preferences and created a beautiful contrast.
|Stylist's thoughts on the outcome
||With the balayage technique, damage done to the hair can be kept to a minimum, with only the surface and ends of the hair bearing the brunt of the stress from the lightening process. The balayage technique also enables the creation of natural-looking highlights and gradation colours, and I am glad to have been able to create a beautiful grey colour (with this technique).
