DOUBLE PROCESS BLONDES
STUNNING DOUBLE PROCESS BLONDESWhen I think of Double Process Blonding, what comes to mind is the “Ying & Yang” of hair color services. The reason I say this is because it is a service that brings up many contradictions.
Let me explain. • Done correctly, the Double Process Blonde is the most stunning haircolor of all. Done incorrectly, it can be the worst looking haircolor of all. • Done on the right person, it will look incredible. Done on the wrong person, it will look hideous. • On one hand, it can be one of the most challenging color services a colorist will face when she/he is trying to get the bleach-out even and toner correct. On the other hand, it can be one of the easiest services a colorist can do because he/she totally eliminates all the unwanted contributing color pigment and then adds the desired tone. I also find that hairdressers fall into two different groups when it comes to Double Process Blonding. If you know what you are doing and have confidence in your coloring skills, you will produce a beautiful Double Process Blonde with strong, healthy hair at which people will marvel. On the other hand, if you are not secure in your skills and abilities as a competent colorist, you may create not only a horrible haircolor job, but can give your client major breakage. And, believe me when I tell you that over the years, I have seen total haircolor disasters, which made beautiful girls look like they were going bald, losing big chunks of hair every time they brushed it.I am not telling you this to scare you, but only to drive home the point, that if you are apprehensive about your coloring skills in this service, pay close attention as you read through this book.What You Will Learn in this Book• CREATING STUNNING DOUBLE PROCESS BLONDES--pg.-17• HOW HAIRCOLOR “USED TO BE”--pg.-18• THE CONSULTATION--pg.-20• THE PRODUCTS--pg.-21• THE HAIR--pg.-22• THE BLEACH-OUT--pg.-23• DOING A VIRGIN BLEACH-OUT--pg.-24• DOING A BLEACH-OUT ON TINTED HAIR--pg.-26• DOING A BLEACH-OUT ON PREVIOUSLY HIGHLIGHTED (BLEACHED)--27• THE TONER--pg.-29• HINTS AND TIPS FOR BETTER DOUBLE PROCESS BLONDING--pg.-31• COLOR CORRECTIVE PROCEDURES--pg.-35#1 BLONDE LOOKS DRAB OR GRAY --pg.-35#2 HAIR HAS A WHITE BAND 1 INCH FROM THE SCALP--pg.-36#3 HAIR HAS A GOLD BAND ABOUT 1 INCH FROM THE SCALP--pg.-38#4 IN A RETOUCH SITUATION, THE REGROWTH AREA (ROOTS) IS, WARMER THAN THE REST OF THE HAIR --pg.-40#5 THE BLEACH-OUT IS VERY SPOTTY AND UNEVEN--pg.-43#6 THE HAIRLINE AND/OR TEMPLES LOOK DARK AND DRAB AFTER TONING--pg.-45#7 AFTER TONING, THE HAIR IS DISCOLORED I.E.: GREEN, VIOLET, PINK ETC. --pg.-47 #8 CLIENT IS EXPERIENCING BREAKAGE --pg.-49• GLOSSARY--pg.-59
