Color Tip #1 by Dallas Christopher

Back Brushing or Teasing techniques throughout your foil work gives your guest beautiful organic highlights, and seamless color melts. Extra tip# As you are placing your product onto your foils, make sure your brush is horizontal allowing for maximum distribution. As you move higher up the hair shaft, turn your brush vertically to perform a feathering technique to achieve maximum color melting successfully.
