TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY: FROM DARK BROWN TO SILVER

Check out this awesome colour change from brunette balayage to trending metallic.

We love a good hair transformation, and when we saw this before and after post pop up on the TIGI Professional’s Instagram feed, we just had to find out how the colour change was created for our latest Transformation Tuesday. TIGI ANZ Collective Team member, Courtney Mason shares with TIGI Fuse how she created this stunning change using TIGI Copyright Colour.

THE CONSULTATION

Courtney explains that her model has a natural level of 3 (Dark Brown), and the aim is to get the hair as light as possible, while keeping it in the best possible condition. The mid- lengths and ends of the hair were previously lightened by Courtney, for which she used a full head of foils technique on virgin hair, using TIGI Copyright Colour True Light White. The regrowth is virgin hair level 3 (Dark Brown).
