One of the most satisfying jobs of a stylist is blow-drying a client’s hair after a fresh color application, and inspecting your work for both placement and formulas. For many colorists, the satisfaction comes from creating looks so natural and organic, that the client’s hair looks as if it has been gently kissed by the sun, not artificially colored.
In my experience, through all the clients I encounter, there are some clients that are more adventurous than others. This can determine much of the work we do. But it also comes down to the type of hair color that each stylist wants to produce. I have always loved the challenge of using placement techniques, regardless of color palettes, to create a “barely there” highlight. This type of highlight adds subtle dimension, and an almost optical illusion to the existing color canvas.
