Foilayage and Color Melting

Theory Series Part 2: Blend Live Model Demonstration

The number one question I get is: "What is a Base Break and a Shadow Tone?".  These two Color Melting techniques create the perfect graduation of color or fade from dark to light from roots to ends to blend Foilayage and Balayage.  

This video shows a Foilayage application on a live model to achieve 4 to 5 levels of lift while mimicking the natural look of Balayage.  Once the foil work is complete the Foilayage must be blended into the natural root.  Base Breaking and Shadow toning are the two techniques that achieve this blend.

The common issues with Base Breaking are creating too much exposure of warmth and "hot roots".  This video shows with formulation and application how to avoid these mistakes and still create lift in the natural base color in between highlights.  

The common issues with Shadow Toning are not understanding the importance of applying this technique and improper formulation leading to a muddy root.  This video shows with formulation and application how to create the perfect melt and shine.

About the instructor

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.
