This stylist dyes her client’s hair vertically
Placing her client’s hair in a mohawk, colourist Caitlin Ford, from St. Louis – America, applies colours of a muted tone to achieve a dusty look that fits right at home in the “succulent” hair trend.
Caitlin used a heavy full-foil to transform the clients original blonde to a sandy siege, before separating the hair into sections on a vertical glass board where she then painted on the blue, green, gold and violet stripes. Caitlin also used a colour map – a book which showcases a range of various watercoloured paper – to gain a better sense of how the outcome will look.
Succulent Hair ??? Inspired by @taylorrae_hair @shmeggsandbaconn and @bescene ?? So this craziness that you guys are looking at is my elevated color board. It’s a piece of plexiglass that I customized with the purpose of showing how direction and elevation effect color placement. It’s kind of like a living head sheet! I used @matrix #socolorcult for my color, and the Total Results #rebond system during prep to keep my model’s hair healthy, and I styled my model with the @love_amika Marcel and styling products. #matrixpartner #amikapartner #thebtcteam #btconeshot_colorvideo18 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #behindthechair #modernsalon #americansalon #esteticausa #hairtutorial #haircolortutorial #succulenthair
“I like this method because it allows me to better visualise where all of my colours are going to fall in the finished result. I also like that I can take bigger sections during the application, so I can move a little faster with it,” said Caitlin
What do you make of the look? Excessive? Or does this method help complete the look?
