Diamond Paint Balayage (Foilayage) + GRAY BLENDING (Color Correction)

FINALLY – A realistic Behind the Chair scenario!

Have you ever had a Mature Guest want to transition out of their opaque gray coverage and partial highlight into a modern Foilayage and had no idea where to start? Hate tinting between foils?

This class is the Solution!

Foilayage Pattern utilizing a Diamon Section to create Maximum Lift in One Session while leaving a Halo of Depth


Gray Blending on a mature guest that already has bands of permanent tint and a traditional partial highlight on top/ dark underneath

Honestly picking through an old highlight pattern create a modern one is not easy but if you are willing to put in the work and have the right client willing to pay for it, it can be done in one session. AND the beautiful part is the maintenance is easier! If you can create Translucent coverage at the same time as Shadow Rooting the Highlights, then the grow out is much softer (no hard line of demarcation). After one intense session, your customer will only need Colormelts every 6-8 weeks and Highlights every 4-6 months. There is no reason our 40+ clients can’t look as trendy as our 15+ clients without having to come every 4 weeks for roots!

About the instructor

Independent Educator

Ashlee Norman

Most people do a Job, I do a Dream. The Passion and Excitement I bring to my Craft comes from a place of Love. It is with that Love that I am driven to share my Knowledge and Experience with the purpose of Elevating my Industry.I originally fell in love with the craft back stage in high school theater and immediately enrolled in Beauty School at 17 years old. I keep my passion alive by continuing my education through attending advanced academies including Vidal Sassoon, Toni and Guy, Bumble and bumble, and Wella Studios.  I also attend Independent Education including Tracey Cunningham, Romeu Felipe, Nine Zero One, and Joseph Dimaggo. While investing in myself, I was building in salon education programs in the form of monthly whole salon teach-backs and bi-weekly assistant training for 8 years. At the beginning of the Independent Educator/ Social Media influencer area I was posting techniques and formulas that organically grew my following and led to requests for me to travel to teach. After 3 years of teaching all over North American, up to Canada, and across the pond to London, the requests for online education became too abundant to ignore.Today I continue to pursue progression in my Craft and spread the Love through this Online Education Platform, traveling as an Independent Educator, and working with clients Behind the Chair.
