Sometimes a foilayage service turns into a color correction. When Sarayah Politi (@hairbysarayah) went to transform her client’s hair into a dreamy bronze brunette, the ends lifted to a warm pink color from previous artificial color. That’s when she turned to strategic formulation and foil work—five hours later, THESE were the results!

 

Keep scrollin’ for the color formulas, application steps and pro tips to prevent brassy brunettes!

 

Total Chair Time: 5 hours (2 hours of foil work)

Pricing: $600

 

Who Is The Ideal Client For This Technique?

This is perfect for deeper brunettes looking for a very bright bronde look that you won’t be able to achieve with hair painting.

 

Avoid This Mistake To Prevent Brassy Brunettes

The secret to bright brunettes is getting enough lift! 🔑 If the desired goal is a creamy Level 7 and you don’t lift enough to tone down and keep it bright, the results will be brassy. Sarayah suggests lifting as light as you can, so you have the flexibility to tone down to a bright Level 7 with a neutral background instead of a brassy background.

FORMULA STEPS

1. Start with a full foilayage using Formulas A and B. Sarayah mixes two different bleach powder lighteners and adds TRUSS Professional 8X Powder for a clay-like consistency. The lifting process took roughly an additional hour after the application time.  

 

2. Root melt with Formula C.

 

3. Use Formula D to pre-tone the ends only—this is where the previous artificial color caused the hair to lift to a warm pink. Process for 5 minutes, then rinse.

During the lifting process, Sarayah spotted pink tones throughout the ends that required color correcting.

 

4. Apply the first all-over gloss with Formula E, process for 10 minutes and rinse.

 

Pro Tip: Sometimes it takes multiple tones to get it perfect during corrective color services, so Sarayah used two gloss formulas.

 

5. Apply the second all-over toner with Formula F. Process for 15 minutes, rinse, wash and style.
