TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY: FROM VIRGIN BRUNETTE TO CREAMY BLONDE

The new season means colour change, like this hair transformation from dark and warm, to a clean blonde balayage.

New hair new me! It is amazing how a hair change can really lift your mood and give you a feeling of empowerment. With summer months loading, year on year we see an increase in clients wanting to go lighter. For our latest hair transformation spotlight, we’re sharing this stunning seasonal update from Moda Hairdressing in Bristol, UK, whose virgin colour client wanted to lighten her look with a creamy blonde balayage.

After sharing her work with us at @TIGIProfessionals Instagram, we asked the stylist, Farrah, how she achieved the look for her client.

THE CONSULTATION

Farrah explains that her client had visited Moda salon for 15 years and had never in her lifetime coloured her hair. The client wanted to achieve the brightest blonde possible balayage from virgin hair level 5 (light natural brown). The client’s hair had been cut by Farrah a couple of weeks prior to the colour service.
