Try this placement if you over foil

color technique Oct 30, 2023

Ever started foiling and 45 minutes in you realize you haven’t finished the back of the head and you are just foiling aimlessly?! Asking for a friend ๐Ÿ˜…

Friends, this used to be me at basically every appointment and I felt lost and confused about why the color was never really what I wanted it to be. I had no clear plan and just kind of fumbled my way through every foil application. Working aimlessly and with zero intention.

Over time I started to refine my placements and focus on efficiency and intention and it changed my life behind the chair. Over the past few months/years I’ve been playing with new placements and am kinnnnddddd of obsessed with this one. When someone wants a lot of dimension, splitting the hair into 3 “layers” keeps me on track so I don’t accidentally overdo it and give them way more brightness than they are wanting.

P.S. - (for the record, I actually did the foils in the diagram AND about 6 for a money piece. And I didn’t root melt!)
