Foil color techniques // Paint Between hair color


Hi everyone it’s April with Hair 101
i’m going to show you another color technique that I do It’s called a paint between
it’s really good to do on anyone
this is a good way to get all of the hair colored
maybe they want to have their browns a little more rich than their natural hair color
and then still have some highlights it’s pretty much doing an all over hair color with
two colors so there are no hairs that are left out that are natural.
so it’s a real good option for someone going grey because it covers all of the grey hair with either the light or the dark color and it’s really fun
so i’m going to show you how to do that i’m going to ask her real quick
from what we did last time if she wants to change anything
so you want to do a little bit more blond?? this time?? Yeah probably like 2/3rds blond and 1/3rd brown
okay that sounds good I can’t remember we’ll lighten this up a little bit more
and for her color I usually do like a 6N for her brown and then the light i’m going to use the Framesi bleach cream when you mix the framesi you are doing you’re doing 20 grams of the color which is about 4 strips on the bowl to every 40 ml of developer so that’s the ration to mix it
and if you buy this color it tells you on the little paper in the package how to mix it up i’m using the 6NN they are the double pigments in the Redkin line the color fusion
they’re really good for greys it colors really well on grey hair but it gives a really pretty color
and i’m out of my regular level 6 and this is really good too
so it works I use what I have so I have a fourth of a tube of that
and i’m using using 10 developer because she doesn’t really have a lot of greys
if she did have a lot of greys I would use 20 so the very first time you do this technique if they have virgin hair and you were doing this technique you would be pulling the blondes out and sticking the lightener on the entire section of that blond so that would be really easy to keep all of the ends protected from the paint between
that you are going to do because her hair has already been lightened
when I take these blond pieces out you have to make sure that all of the ends stay inside of the foil so in order to keep all these ends safe from the other color
I take a bunch of conditioner and put it in a bowl and
use it like color and i’m going to paint those onto her blond ends
so it’s going to be giving her ends a deep condition also while we’re putting the color in you do have to make sure not to get the conditioner on the bleach because that won’t be good
I just fold the foil down and then I stick it in
then I always put the lightener on from the regrowth from the scalp all the way until it hits that line of regrowth or the color change line
then with the conditioner you can do just the ends
then that way when you fold it up you can fold this line to that middle section that’s dry and keep the bleach and the conditioner seperate from each other
then you don’t have to worry about the paint between color getting on those ends and making them dark that’s the little trick that will help that’s the little trick that will help you out with this color technique the paint between
so that’s what i’m going to do on these two back sections all the way up and then I’ll check back with you for
the top. we’re going to leave out all of the browns and on the blonds you retouch the regrowth area then put the conditioner on the ends to keep it tight in that foil
because on a normal weave you’d be leaving those ends like a tail out the side and that will not work for a paint between
so make sure you are getting those in
with either conditioner
or if you can wind the hair up and tuck it in there
I like using the conditioner for the whole deep conditioning idea thats kinda fun
but sometimes if I’m really really trying to go fast i’ll wind the hair up and stick it in the foil and make sure that none of the ends are poking out
but that does take a little bit more practice this is definitely easier for beginners so definitely through the top i’m
really taking extra special care to make sure that I’m taking some of those blond pieces out
the back of it seemed really blond anyway it’s more on the top that we had some of the extra dark in there so I’m going to do the lightener on the light part
and the conditioner on the blond and then sandwich this foil
whenever I do the two together like that
I sandwich it to make sure that those two chemicals or whatever are not bleeding together okay so I need to mix up some more of the lightener and i’m already probably more than halfway done
like 2/3rds done since I want it to go a little bit faster
when I mix it up this time I’m going to use thirty volume bleach so it can catch up to the 20 volume bleach that we used in the back and that way everything will process faster and yeah that’s my little tip for the day
If you have to mix up more bleach you can mix it up a little stronger than the last batch if you’re almost done so these brown pieces up here i’m going to cut them in half a little bit more blonde and so I figure if I cut them in half then she’ll be more blond alright I always switch over to the front right here because I like to get really close to the the face and I take these sections really small
because there is usually little widow’s peak and if you try to stretch
it in there too much then It will not have color on the roots and not look good
since it’s right by the face take that extra tiny little piece and make it look right a widow’s peak is when the hair comes down to a point right here not everyone has it but usually people have a little bit
like a round shape right there if they don’t have a widows peak
I always take really small sections right here by the face just make sure I can get close to those roots
alright so now I’m taking….
and you know what I was wrong I mean… it’s hard to admit that I was wrong but it’s better to mix up the brown after you’ve put all the blonds in because then the color is not sitting there oxidizing
i’m going to put a little bit more in here now would be the time to be mixing up your brown color pretend like I just barely mixed this up it will still work just fine but fresh color does work really great
a little bit better than color that’s been sitting here for 30 minutes then you’re going to put gloves on for the next part so put your gloves on
you really should wear gloves when you are doing color like this
it’s not good for your skin it can absorb into your body
always wear gloves when you’re touching a chemical onto your skin
okay i’m going to start on the front
and you go to that first section that is brown then you’re going to use a clip I stand all the foils straight up and down then I put the clip through about six of them and that holds them up and down
then you reach in and if you have one that’s right against
the face you can go in and put another foil in that one so you don’t put the color smashed against their forehead that’s not a good idea
then you go in here and if there’s any little bleeders you
can just dust them with the color and this takes care of all of those ends
and if the hair is long enough to reach past their face you need to put that in the foil on the first few that go forward so it’s not hitting their face with the color
and you’ll go through all the foils in between hence the name
“paint between” and you’re going to paint it in
make sure you’re getting close to the scalp because especially if they have
grey they’re not gonna wanna have grey roots still when they’re done make sure you’re getting this nice and close to the scalp this is a lot better for the hair than coloring it all dark and bleaching it out every time you could color all their hair brown and then foil a bunch of highlights then if you keep doing that then you’re just recoloring and rebleaching their hair so many times
that their hair is going to be fried that’s why I like this technique better the other option would be to foil up everything and that I think is just waisting foils and taking up too much time
so this is faster than that I am putting it on the entire shaft of hair
even if it’s already brown just to refresh the ends
because if they’ve faded out might as well just put it everywhere I’ve gone through all of the foils and done the paint between on everything and so the last step especially if you have gray hair this is
something you cannot if you skip this they are going to have these gray stripes all over their head so you have to take
the color and get a good amount in there and you’re going to paint on the edges of everything in all of the partings
and if it gets a little bit on the bleach
guess what that’s okay because it’s better than having grey hairs
trust me on this one you’re gonna go through and then even
along the face right here you’ll paint the color
make sure you get all of these little hairs you can go back through after we’re done
and wipe it with a little cloth and make sure
but you need to really make sure that you get every edge
here’s another parting right in here you see how it’s dry right in here
you need to paint the color in there okay so now that you’ve heard my little shpeal.
make sure that you do that every where make sure you don’t miss any double
check
because you don’t want to have stripes if they don’t have gray hair and their
hair pretty much gonna be the same color as the color you are doing anyway
it’s not as big of a deal but still do it because you don’t want to chance having a different color stripe anywhere on the head alright on this side over here
then again along the face
the hairline sometimes you have to lift the foils up a little bit like this to get in there you just life them up like that and you can see better okay you should have that time and now it’s time to process
you can process this room temperature well you’re going to look at the box color see how long it says
usually it says 30-45 minutes or if you have a faster color you can put a cap on it and process it under a dryer
which I usually do with her
but if you’re doing a really heavy gray coverage
you’ll want to make sure that you process the full 35 to 40 minutes whatever it says we’re gong to do the shower cap
and the reason why you need a shower cap is because if you put the color
underneath the dryer without this on it it’s going to dry out and it won’t process and it will be crusty
so make sure you keep it moist
tuck in all the loose hairs then you can process under the dryer k last step before you process
I take a little bit of water on a towel and I follow around the round of the face and the ears
and I wipe up any little bits of color that might be on their skin because nobody wants to go home with black stain on their skin or their ears when they’re getting their hair colored and even along the neckline you can even
do it down here if you see any
k looks good make sure you always check the color before you rinse it
I think that’s light enough
I think that looks good we’re going to go ahead and rinse her out I didn’t use a toner on her because it was just a retouch her ends are already really pale light and the roots looked good
so she’s going to be how it was
i’m going to go ahead and dry it up and do a trim alright so we are all done with our paint
between and here’s the end result
we lightened it up a little bit more through the top and let me show you the back
it’s a really pretty blended two color hair color
and there are no grays anywhere
even though guess what. she doesn’t have any greys anyway but if she did there still wouldn’t be any
awesome right? and you can see in here that we got all the color everywhere and we’re good
so try it! let me know how you guys like it and we’ll see you next time
