Basic Highlight or Corrective Color?

Exceptional corrective color by @kayleejarrettstylist
Corrective color??  Yes, that's right!  Most people think of those words when the clients hair is seriously messed up or damaged.  While this makeover is great and of course we love the after pic, the before is nothing more than a faded grow out and not in fact messed up color. 
What most people don't realize is that the same technique and expertise has to be used to change the pattern and tone to "correct" and there are so many things to consider. 
In this makeover, she didn't just add highlights to brighten she had to consider...
1. Brightening the strands evenly from scalp to ends without damage
2. Adding balayage without damaging prelightened ends
3. Adding lowlights to change the tone in between highlights for depth and dimension
4. Toning in between/after to pull it all together 
This is the main reason why having a preconsultaion is so important before your actual appointment.  For example, if this client were to call and tell us that she just needed highlights, we would have booked her for a highlight and tone when what was actually needed was highlight, lowlight, balayage, tone and treatments.  Having the preconsultation sets the expectation for the guest and the stylist.  Is the desired result achievable and with how many visits?  How much time is needed for the appointment?  What products are needed and recommended for before and after your appointment?  What is the estimate of your investment?  
We want to give you our best!
