In this video I show you to to an easy at home tutorial on how to low light your own hair. In order to add depth, darkness deepen your existing color and and add dimension and contrast to your blonde. Here I am using a demi permanent color by color brilliance, mixed with a demi permanent developer. I explain that since we are darkening and there will be no lift, that there is no reason to use ammonia and harsh chemicals when all we want to do is lower the color. I show how to do this with a simple technique using a highlighting comb and foil. I do only four rows of foil low lights. With a simple weaving technique anyone can do. Avoiding the pieces framing the face, in order to leave them blonde to mimic that which the sun would do to the hair for a natural beautiful look. I explain that a little goes a long way when low lighting. Especially for the look here where we were going for a subtle soft low light that would aid also in toning any brass that was present in the hair. Processing time is quick. You dont need to leave it on long for you are using a demi permanent which acts fact due to the fact that it doesn’t need to lift only deposit color. I left it on about 10 minutes. Checking every five minutes. You can leave it on from 10-15 minutes. Making sure not to use a color too ashy for this staying with in the neutral and warm tones. Because blonde hair will talke ashy tones more than other colors.
