Drew Barrymores hair is a good example of contrast from dark to light, while Sarah Jessica Parker illustrates colour starting at varying heights.
Balayage foiling creates extreme contrast. It normally takes 20-30 minutes to foil, plus processing time. It is very creative as you can free-style paint to accentuate the clients hair style. Regrowth can be done every 6-10 weeks.
You will need: Tail comb, tint brushes, tint bowls,large size foil
Use the large size foil and cut it to the appropriate sizes. Section the hair.
Fold one side of the foil inward, then the other side. Fold the bottom corner upward to avoid slippage.
Continue foiling the back and sides.
When you do the very front, hairline foil, take a section incorporating hair from both sides of the parting. Only take a small amount of hair (max 12 strands), for the best result. If too many strands are used it will look unnatural.
