Clients like these are actually FAR more challenging then most. Why? Cause she came in with SUPER light hair to begin with. Her natural color was very dark in comparison to the blonde as well. Y’all are prob confused as to why this would be so hard right? Well the problem is that retouching colors like this WITHOUT breakage is in my opinion prob the hardest thing to do. Her old stylist (who did a great job btw) told her that integrating the roots (as I did here) wouldn’t be possible without leaving her orange. They did a test strand and it in fact was yellow/orange. So she landed in my chair cause she kept getting turned down. BECAUSE THIS IS HARD TO DO and no one wants to do it. Lots and lots of work and patience. We only did a partial (top half) because she has too much hair and need too much work that I have to break it up for 2 sittings. So she’ll be back to finish the back a different day. She was totally happy with it and as was I. It was super stressful but the results were worth it. Hair stayed in tact and she trusted me 100%. That’s key guys. Also, I recommend this type of service all day and every day. The root integrations. Work with your natural Color always in my personal opinion. I DO NOT add colors at the roots unless for grey coverage. And if I do it’s as close as possible to the natural color. I’m more about saving your guys hair as much as possible, saving you money, and time. By doing it my way y’all cut down appointments. Lower maintenance guys. BUT I am HUGE on trims. Even if half an inch (literally or less) no more than every 3 months. It’s crucial for me. So who’s next? Currently taking new clients.
I'll try to be as detailed as possible. Two days ago I went for a run after having been "fasting" for a few days due to some discomfort from potentially contaminated coffee. So I was eating high antioxidant foods that lack much substance: berries, spinach, and a few bananas. Maybe totaling 500 calories each day for 2 days. Far from my 2500+ norm. ° My legs were at about 95% healed from my previous 10k (6.2 mile) run maybe 4 days earlier. I'm a minimalist runner and used @vibramfivefingers exclusively until both pairs were stolen. I've been wearing @feiyueshoes ever since. So if you're not aware, these are martial arts shoes that were once very popular in the parkour community. It's like being barefoot but with armor. Without ankle or arch support I must support myself and therefore utilize all the muscles required to run like humans are designed to. On the balls of our feet. If you've never tried it but you're used to running do not attempt to match your usual distances because you will regret it in the next few days. ° I had no intention of running as far as I did on that gloriously savage day. I knew I was going to go for at least 10k because that's what my last two runs were and I decided it was my new standard. Yet when I was out there running on those railroad ties (the long stretch on the left of the map) I just didn't want to go home yet. It was too beautiful and I was feeling too good. So I kept going. After mile 8 my auto-pilot began to shut down and I slipped up on 2 foot placements before I realized what was happening and that I needed to refocus a bit. By mile 9 my legs were feeling tight and sore but nothing too serious. It was then that I announced to myself, the trees, and all the creatures surrounding me that I would not stop until 13.1 miles. At mile 10 all the winds had come and gone. I used up my second wind, third wind, and fourth wind by that point and the gas tank was dry. Blood sugars gone, glycogen stores depleted as I was aware of a
