There are many ways to retouch your previous highlights.
We hairdressers choose hair colour method or technique considering client’s hair condition, what colour they want to get and how they want to look.
Here is an example of how my client who had her hair toned down 3 months ago.
Bleached ends are from the balayage we did 9 months ago.
We have been toning down the ends as well as roots over and over around every 3 months since 9 months ago.
We decided to AirTouch her hair to lighten the roots that blends gradually to the ends.
1. What is AirTouch balayage?
AirTouch technique uses air to create seamless blend of colour.
Using a blow dryer to push the shorter hairs and internal layers down and apply the colour on the remaining hair.
This blends the colour with natural looking effects leaving soft dimension that will survive the grow-out.
2. How AirTouch balayage works
Roots are lightened and it blended naturally to the ends.
Shorter hair that’s darkened created very natural looking and you can tell her regrowth will blend nicely.
Colour will start to fade but now the base colour is even and all she needs is take a good care of her hair using good shampoo and conditioner and coming back for cut and colour to keep the hair condition.
Either adding a touch of extra warmth and dimension, or AirTouhing again to lighten the base more is how I recommend to maintain her hair.
