Salon Sovay stylist, Sovay Reeder, creates a fun new look for her client this weekend...just in time for summer and her new job!

We had a fun time transforming my client's look which began with color.  This was the first time I met her (and her hair).  She had about 1 1/2 inches of new growth we had to address first.

Step 1 - color:
I lifted her base with 10 Volume developer and 8.1 Pravana color and then applied 9BV/8N PM Shine to her entire base to get more overall depth to her existing blonde...her baseline color was simply too yellow and brassy.

Step 2 - color:
I applied highlights with 5 Volume Developer/Lightener and lowlights with 7N PM Shine throughout top and sides of head (commonly referred to as a "partial")

Step 3 - Hot Heads Extensions
We used Hot Heads Extensions length 18-20 inch number 27 and number  8, 1:1 ratio for highlight, lowlight effect

Step 4 - Styling
We cut the extensions to create a face frame effect and cut her bangs to frame her face optimally.  We also created light layering and texturizing to the extensions for blending purposes.  A curling iron ( 1 1/2 inch) was used to add bounce and light curl to her extensions.  Voila...done :)

Salon Sovay stylist, Kate Spoleti, creates soft highlights using balayage applcation.

Balayage is a French colouring technique that was developed in the 1970s. It’s a freehand technique where the color is applied by hand rather than using the traditional foiling or cap highlighting techniques.

Balayage can be used in even the shortest pixie crop however the best results is in hair below the shoulders.

The fact it’s so low maintenance is a bonus! People want to look fashionable and feel good about their appearance but in this day and age we don't all have the time to be in the salon every few weeks for a touch up.

Hot Heads Extensions with stylist, Sovay Reeder, at Salon Sovay

In honor of upcoming Valentine's Day, I have carefully placed a nice heart on my client's face to keep her anonymous so we can focus on the hair extensions.  My client previously came in with Great Lengths extensions and left my salon with Hot Heads extensions! 

Color ~ put 40Volume on her new growth...put hl packets in around her face and mohawk section...put lowlights with 7N PM Shine...followed with 9NB PM Shine all over her hair and in between foils.

Extensions ~ 18 - 20 inch 40 piece pack AND  Mini Pack Ultimate 14 - 16 inch

Eyelash Perm and Eyelash Tint with Sovay Reeder @ Salon Sovay

Oftentimes I'm asked if you can perm or tint shorter eyelashes and will it really make a difference. I think so. This client has very fine, modest lashes and they're really optimally enhanced with an eyelash tint and eyelash perm.  Just because your lashes may not be the strongest facial feature you have does NOT mean it should be ignored.  All lashes are equal here...I treat them all the same...and strive to get them to their personal "10".

Eyelash perm service with Sovay Reeder @ Salon Sovay

Here's a before and after look of an eyelash perm service from Sovay Reeder @ Salon Sovay.  This is simply an example of a lash perm and not an eyelash tint.  Oftentimes, if the client has fine, fair, or light colored lashes it may be optimal to add a tint for deeper color and thicker texture.  The above client had a coarse lash already but they were board straight and not receptive to an eyelash curler.
