Can I do the following: step 1- wet the hair. Step 2- all over toner/gloss. Step 3- balayage the ends with a lightener. Step 4- process. Step 5- rinse, shampoo, blow dry, style.

Why would you double process the hair with colour then bleach? You’d need to tone after bleaching the hair.

Well here’s what’s goin on... she had her hair bleached all over from a different stylist and it is super brassy. She wants to be more ashy and is considering partial balayage as well. I would need to tone the brass, balayage and tone again. I just thought it wouldn’t matter if I tone and bleach at the same time. I’ve see. Stylists do shadow root the same time as the bleach application.

I guess I missed a step. After processing, rinse, then tone the ends, process and rinse, conditioner blow dry style.

Root shadow is different because you’re only softly blending the bleach and the root tint where they meet.

What level is it currently? 7/8/9?

I’d say 7. I’ll attach a pic of her current hair and an inspiration pic

That’s a major colour correction from her current hair colour.

I know ‍♀️ She’s on a budget. So I told her I can do one or 2 shades darker all over. Or that and partial balayage. What do u suggest??

Id be inclined to do a full head scattering of highlights, while these are processing, apply a demi/quasi in between to bring the base down to at least a 6. Then once this is processed, rinse, shodow the root with a 5 again depending on how dark your client really wants to go, and then apply a toner over the mid lengths and ends, that is going to clean up the highlights, blending the two together.

Glad you’ve given her options that sit within her budget.
Don’t do someone’s hair for a discount as it’s rarely appreciated, especially by so called friends!
