Over the weekend, my mom wanted me to do her hair. I thought it might be pretty cool to take a timelapse of the whole thing and post it for everyone to see! I love how it turned out and it is so fun to watch. So here is my mom’s full head highlights timelapse:
The Products I Used:
- Paul Mitchell The Color 8N (See how to read color numbers)
- Paul Mitchell The Color 8NB
- Goldwell Oxycur Platin Dust Free Bleach
- Paul Mitchell 20 Volume Cream Developer (for all of the above)
- First, I mixed all of the colors/bleach in their own bowl. I like to use a whisk to make sure the color is nice and smooth.
- Next, I quickly cut foils into halves.
- I sectioned my mom’s hair into 6 sections:
- The first section in the middle of the top, front to the crown.
- The next sections on each side, from crown to ear.
- Another section in the top of the back of her head.
- And finally, one section on each side of her nape.
- I applied 8NB to the entire nape sections. I used foils to break up each subsection.
- For the rest of her head, I followed an “8NB, bleach, 8N, bleach” pattern.
- On each of the sides, my mom asked me to make the bottom portion and front subsection dark (8NB). I carved out a diagonal/vertical subsection on the front of each side and applied 8NB to the entire subsection.
- My mom had asked me to do many smaller subsections. She also likes it to be very blended and natural so I “weave” each subsection with a weaving comb.
- The foil pattern I usually follow is horizontal in each subsection, besides the two vertical subsections on each side. I usually start with the nape and go all the way up, and then go from the bottom-up on each side. I usually do the top section last.
