Don’t do this! Less Foils for Better Blondes.

Not everything is about cutting, color techniques are also crucial for a well all rounded successful stylist. Some assert that after completing a blonding treatment, the hair’s brightness vanished from the final appearance. The majority of filed masters concur that overfiling is the problem:

Placement Trick
To create a bright blonde outcome, you don’t need 100 foils; instead, you just need to put them carefully. The key to foiling with the most impact is straightforward: Where it matters, increase brightness! Establish the desired outcome before you even TOUCH a foil, and then make a visual roadmap that will lead you through the service.


With this method, you can get balayage’s low-maintenance effect with results that are brighter and higher contrast. You can approach this problem more strategically with the aid of Foilyage:

Chunky weaves are used on the first and last set of foils, traditional foils are used in the center, and tip-out foils are used in the middle for bright ends.

a sandwich approach! Chunky-weaved foils (on top and below) serve as the “bread,” and standard foilayage/tip-outs are used in between.

Place Depth To Create A Bright POP!

Bold pops must be made for high-impact blonding. Look at the hair’s natural movement and fall first. Next, add brightness to the areas where it will have the biggest impact, i.e., where the client sees their hair.

Shadow Blonde: Try These Color Formulas

Gloss is never used to repair, only to seal the cuticle and organically accentuate. Making blends with foils is equivalent to painting without glossing.
Continual color toning? With tone softeners, yes. They alter the consistency and turn the colors into a demi-permanent gloss, making it meltable.

You can use these strategies and see how your blondes might make a bigger impression.
