3 Foiling Techniques For Brighter Blondes & Face-Frames

There’s a reason why face-framing dimension is super on-trend right now–when done right, it gives blondes/balayage clients the perfect pop of lightness while providing a low-maintenance grow out that is oh-so-seamless. So below, we’re sharing three quickies from BTC Team Member @jessicascotthair that’ll teach you how to achieve a brighter face-frame every time. Check ‘em out below.

 

Products Used

 

1. Foiling & Coverage

For blondes who want the most coverage, Jessica likes to do double Mohawk sectioning following the client’s part and then she’ll slice them all the way back. Just remember to keep your slices small. If they’re too big, you’ll end up with demarcation lines.

 

Pro Tip: Lightener consistency matters! While a thicker consistency means more power and a quicker lift, it can be difficult to spread. That’s why Jessica likes to mix Revlon Professional™ Blonderful™ Blonde Up 8 Levels Powder so it’s somewhere between not too runny but not too thick.

2. How To Foil The Hairline

You want the hairline to be natural-looking yet bright, right? In the video below, Jessica shows her placement for foiling the hairline in order to brighten up the face-frame, get those little details for when her client pulls her hair back and to give the highlighted hair that overall WOW factor.

 

Note: Instead of slicing, Jessica likes to weave the hairline to create a more natural look.

3. How To Foil The Back Sections Around The Hairline

When foiling the sections behind the hairline, Jessica likes to work off a diagonal weave. Why? Because it creates a softer, more natural-looking blend while still providing a small amount of movement and dimension.

 

Pro Tip: Jessica says the key to an even lift with zero splotching is to make sure your sections are see-through!
