Mondays education!

So today two of us from the Bijou team partook in an educational day from Schwartzkopf, we viewed the 4 new trend cuts and color.

We did one of the cuts, one I personally like very much and one color that was so very interesting and I can't wait to have someone to try it out on!!

I will include a picture of the cut we did at the end, and the photos attached of Jackie and our mannequins are of the color was done with a demi permanent (demi, meaning it lasts a bit longer than semi, but not totally permanent, good for about 70% grey coverage and blending! We broke the head down into 4 horizontal sections and then each of those 4 horizontal sections we broke down into about 6 small sections...we had 3 colors, all the same level (levels are numbered from 1, being the darkest, to 10 being the lightest) 6, but different tones (tones are the shades of color, we did a mahogany, chocolate and copper red) we mapped out the head on a piece of paper and numbered our color bowls and color coded them (have I lost you yet??) So it looked like a sudoku puzzle in the shape of a head and only with numbers 1,2 and 3! We had to strategically place each number/color, so that it did not bump up or sit next to was quite fun and a bit challenging!
The end result was stunning, just stunning!!!
The model that is pictured below, the blonde is done with that technique, and the shades are a violet tone, a beige tone and a platinum! (which is blue) Can you see the colors??

It was a fun class and we definitely learned a lot! This week we will share it with Kimberlee and our new team member Michele Zeppieri, who were both unable to make it!

Education is essential in our field, as trends change so quickly! It's also a blast!!!!

Stop in to see us and who knows maybe we can talk you into trying our new color technique:)
