Lots of Foils

“I see a lot of influencers posting about using less foils for maximum impact, but there is still a time and place for lots of foils. Guests who want full coverage blonde with minimum contrast simply need more foils,” explains Blake Reed Evans, Sam Villa ambassador and owner of Shear Art Salon in Tampa. Florida (@blakereedevans).

“The key to this look is paper-thin slices. The thinner slice you take, the higher lift you will get to achieve maximum brightness. I also used predominantly vertical lines across the part and horizontal foils on the side to increase coverage. I did a few diagonals around the face to follow the hairline, “explains Evans.

  • Color: Redken Flash Lift Power 9 and 30 Volume 1:1.5. Gloss: Shades EQ Bonder Inside Clear.
  • Do not leave more than 1/8” between foils. The less foils, the more contrast.
  • Style: Blow dry hair and use the Sam Villa Signature Series Professional Curling Iron 1” on the color-treated setting. A color-treated setting is KEY after a blonding service because hair is fragile. This setting (392°) is great because anything over 400° can actually remove haircolor molecules from the hair.
