I posted a reel Friday,of this color, asking how long you thought it took. Surprisingly, 80% of the comments were correct. Many asked how much it cost. Well here ya go. $100 an hour. It took me 8.5 hours for the total service. (Pictures not included)


I used 8 bowls of @kenraprofessional simply blonde blue powder lightener with 15 & 20vol developer.
+
1.5 bowls of @brazilianbondbuilder demi conditioner (for her already processed ends)
=
4.5 hours just to bleach the regrowth & protect the ends.
••••••••••••
Her color was was a total of 6.5 bowls of color + multiple caps of @brazilianbondbuilder

Black roots - @matrix color sync 1A with 5vol
Purple- @matrix so color cult Royal Purple
Teal- a discontinued @matrix socolor cult color
Green- Pravana Neon green

Which color do you think I used the most of?

This was the first process of a huge transformation & yes, it took 6 hours from the time she entered the salon to the time she walked out the door. We started at 4:30pm & she left at 10:30pm. & we didn’t even blow dry her before she left! (The right picture is her hair air dried) This time includes her getting situated, her service, processing time, wash time, haircut,checkout time & yes before pictures & snapping some some pictures here & there during the service. (Before pics took about 10 mins)


This is why I break up these huge transformations into 2 days. Her second process took 4 hours. It’s easier on my body, the client doesn’t have to sit for as lint of a time & honestly with the issues I’ve been having with my back….it’s just what I have to do now.


This is one of the main reasons you can’t go from black to blonde in 1.5 hours for $100. I got lucky & her brown is virgin hair, but…it still took 6 hours to do. It’s unreasonable to ask a stylist to do this level of work for less than $75-$80 an hour (I personally charge $100 ph) especially a stylist with their own business.


I used @kenraprofessional simple blonde blue powder lightener with @trionicshaircare 17 & 20vol developer & obviously a s**t ton of @framar foils. Did @fanola purple shampoo for 5 mins at the bowl.

I couldn’t decide which one of these I liked more so you get both!


I usually find it pretty hard to get the perfect picture of those fluffy, hand textured, waves. But I’m pretty happy with how this came out!


I used @bedheadbytigi “Gimme Grip” shampoo & conditioner for that clean, second day hair. Blow dried with “after party” & THENNNN styled with a 1 1/2 curling iron with “light headed” I also used the hair spray to style this first photo. It’s the perfect light spray to keep hair in place for pictures but easy to brush out & not feel over sprayed. #btcxtigipartner #letyourcreativityrule #bedheadbytigi #bedheadstyling

Well, here she is! If you saw yesterday’s post about the “platinum card VS bleach out” this was our final result. The platinum card section lifted so well I couldn’t bare to cover it so we hella toned it (not that it needed much help 😂)


This look was heavily inspired by @maggiemh •

I used @kenraprofessional simply blonde blue powder lightener with @trionicshaircare 17vol in the back & 20vol in the front.


The rose copper color is all @kenraprofessional “natural creative” shades (muted copper, sandy beige, honey coral & a tiny amount of dusty rose) I really thought I was making some one off color but it’s just rose copper instead of rose gold 😂 when I first got these shades from Kenra I knew I wanted to wait to use them so I could create something really special with them instead of using them just for the sake of using them to post about. I’m glad I waited!


The white section was toned with @matrix 11N & 11V with 5vol developer & all formulas included @brazilianbondbuilder

This is a visual representation of why hair services cost so much more $ than they used to.


The left side is a platinum card meaning every single piece of hair was placed perfectly in a foil, these sections (slices) are so thin you can read a newspaper through them. Each one was saturated fully with lightener & sandwiched between foil for maximum heat incubation. This one side alone took 1 hour & 45 mins to apply (just the back of the head)


The right side is a regular bleach out. What this mean is multiple larger sections (usually 2-3 slices) were hand saturated in bleach, with foils placed every 2-3 section. This took me about 45 mins to apply. (Only the back)


The lightener was applied to the roots at the same time for both sides after the full application was finished.


Bleach application can make or break what is possible for your client. Clients who are wanting to be as blonde as possible, platinum card is where it’s at, but depending on the density of the hair, be prepared for it to take 3 hours just to apply lightener. If someone is charging $100-$150 an hour that’s $300-$450 minimum just for lightening the BACK of the head.


Bleach outs aren’t all bad either I do them a lot for fashion colors bc they are quick. But they aren’t the best option for someone wanting to be WHITE. This client was still able to get something metallic/pastel but it was on the warm side of the spectrum.


This was all virgin hair with zero color except blonde on her tips. I used @kenraprofessional simply blonde blue powder lightener with @trionicshaircare 17vol developer on both sides.

Best sweatpants ever from @prettylittlething. Please ignore the giant Norwhal on the floor.

Honestly looking at these pictures on my iPhone 12 Pro Max vs the 7+ I had is such a difference. Now I’m pumped to learn the camera on this thing!


Color @matrix (neons @pravana) all with @brazilianbondbuilder
Styling- @bedheadbytigi the “after party” smoothing cream really helped smooth this out course curly hair! Also look how shiny!

I wanted a moment to sit in this before giving it a permanent home in my feed.


I’ve gotten at least one nomination every year since 2017 when I got my first one shot award. But I’ve NEVER made it into these two categories. Even though I do all types of color & services, creative/unconventional color is my loveeee. It has been since I was 15. I poor everything I have into it. For myself, for my content & for my clients.


Both of these are models. There’s probably 20 hours of work between the 2 & only about $200. I pour myself into each head of hair, this includes sacrificing my health & sometimes mental health, so in 2019 I stopped creating what i thought people wanted to see & started creating for myself.


I cried actual tears. Like, my eyes were leaking...even though this isn’t top 25 I still made it here out of 65k+ people & that’s something to take a moment to recognize & be proud of.


Some will say it’s bc I’m part of the btc team, some will say it’s bc I won a past award, some will say they play favorites. But I truly believe I earned this & I wont let anyone diminish my achievement or dull my moment by disregarding my hard work. These 2 make 4 top 100 for me in the year following 2 major life changes for me & you know a pandemic. I lost my motivation & love for hair/content for a while there, but I’m back & feeling more inspired than ever! ❤️

Have you ever done a super contrast-y color and then been like, well f**k....how do I rinse this out now? Well @framar backyards bib to the rescue! (These also keep me from going through 3 capes per color appointment😂) it does take some help on the part of your client, but mine usually don’t mind! What do you think? Would you do this? If you try it please tag me would love to see!

If you’ve been following my stories you know I’ve had some back issues the last couple of weeks. If you look at this picture you can tell I’ve put on some weight. Both go hand in hand.


Turns out I have a degenerative disk & the start of what could be arthritis in my lower back. I have have some concerning issues in my spine between my shoulder blades & the base of my skull/neck area. (The last 2 I’m told are common in hairdressers)


This appointment was just x-rays & some test to see how bad it is, I was told it was caught early & can be “fixed” I’ll find out on Tuesday what those steps are & what my x-rays really told them.


He also told me I was safe to go to the gym & that he recommends everyone move as much as possible as often as possible. My weight puts more pressure on my lower back than I realized especially when standing for long periods of time.


also with these #pride overalls from @target & my first ever prescription sunglasses from @zennioptical
