    Colouring facial hair

    Help with colour

    I have a client who is currently the first pic but wants to go "not so light on the ends". The Guy Tang pic is one of the pics she's sent me as inspiration so I'm just wondering how to go about this. I realise that I will need to balayage some pieces a bit higher up and probably get it pretty...

    Help with colour

    My client wants to go from the first to the second pic. I don't think it looks overly grey so I'm thinking of putting 8/81 colour touch all over. Will the 8/81 touch the trots though? If not I will need to use a permanent, something along the lines of an 8 base but with an ashy tone. Would...

    Unhappy client

    Had a new client on Saturday who started out as a base 5 naturally with about couple of inches root growth and the ends were around a 6 with a red tone. She previously had purple box dye on and stripped it out herself prior to consultation. She asked for something like these pics. So quite a...

    Colour application advice

    I have a client wanting this picture and just wondering what's the best way to apply colour? She is naturally a base 6 with grown out blonde highlights. I'm wondering whether it's possible to apply the colour in one go, by applying the global colour to the roots first then going through and...

    I bought my Miraki scissors around 10 years ago and thinking about getting a new pair. They're still cutting fine but the finger rest will no longer stay in as I think the threads have worn where you screw it in [emoji17] I've been looking at Miraki again but they're very expensive, I paid...

    From full head bleach highlights to all over bleach?

    I have a client who I've been full head highlighting for a while, the last couple of times it was just bleach in the foils where as before that there was a couple of darker blondes in there and about 6 months ago it was ombré so there's still a slight band where that has grown out. Now she wants...

    Ombré extensions

    Products for itchy scalp?

    Can anyone recommend any shampoos for sensitive/itchy scalp. It's for myself, I usually use Tigi Bedhead and have done for ages. Usually colour goddess.

    Micro ring maintenance

    Have one booked in a couple of weeks which I fitted 4/5 weeks ago. Have only done nano ring maintenance as yet and I've pretty much needed to take them all out and resection. I was taught to only move up every other row and any that are slipping/matting, etc so I'm hoping to just be able to do...

    Leyton House Alpine Lightener

    Just wondering if anyone has used this before? I have a client booked in who usually has this on her hair. I normally use Wella so don't really want to buy another lightener just for this client. From what I've read the difference is that it's ammonia free?
