Octo-Colorist : Using 8 Colors is Normal for This Colorist
Octo-mom has too many kids. . . I use too many colors, but that's where the similarities END - completely
I've always felt the goal of my foil work in color was to make each clients hair look as close to a childs as possible.
Someday just look at a 10 or an 8 or even a 12 year olds hair ( if it is Level 7 thru 10) they just have so many tones and so many levels in it, I decided long ago that was to be a goal of mine in foils.
Currently the trend is not for multiple colors in hair, but truthfully it is my one true love as far as Color. There would be many times I would use between 6 & 8 colors in foils using the slices technique... one of the reasons for my quick success I believe. . . . in Malibu no one did that.
Actually at Sassoon.... no one went to that trouble. . .I just loved the results.
The only hard part about it?
Mixing the bowls up ,
but at the time I had a couple of great assistants
that loved having projects to do..
I'm sure they took that trick to their practice as well.
Being an Intern or assistant in any field
is the single best way to advance
