How To Paint A Money Piece 3 Different Ways

So here’s the tea: Money pieces are MAJOR moneymakers. 💰 But not all clients have the perfect hairline for rocking one. And while some guests want a bolder pop of dimension, others want something more natural to ensure the fade out is seamless. If adjusting your technique is a struggle, keep reading because we’re breaking down a genius Instagram post from BTC Team Member Carly Zanoni (@the.blonde.chronicles) that explains three ways to paint a money piece.


1. A Money Piece On A Widows Peak/Uneven Hairline

When working with uneven hairlines, paint two super tiny (not teased) babylights right on the hairline and then paint three teased and weaved sections back-to-back directly behind those babylights.


2. A Natural-Looking Money Piece

For clients with a generally straight hairline, keep it simple and natural-looking by painting three teased and weaved foils back-to-back.



3. A Bold Money Piece

If she wants a bigger, brighter pop in the face-frame, start by painting three teased and weaved foils back-to-back. Then, directly behind those, take a triangular section, weave and tease it and then start the lightener application about 2 to 3 inches off the hairline. “This prevents it from looking chunky at the top but makes it appear bolder right around the face, starting around eye level,” shares Carly.
