3 ObjectivesDemonstrate special effects haircoloring techniques; cap, foil and balayageUnderstand special problems encountered in haircoloringList safety precautions in haircoloringLEARNING MOTIVATION (WHY?)Now that you have a good grasp of color theory, the law of color, and the various basic haircoloring procedures, it is time to explore the special effects and problems in haircoloring that may require corrective coloring procedures. Since every haircoloring service is unique, you must carefully analyze the hair and consult with the client about his/her needs. We have stressed the importance of strand and patch testing before any haircoloring service. However, even after you have become extremely skilled and experienced, you will still occasionally encounter a haircolor problem. As we have learned, these problems can result from a variety of reasons including the client’s hair structure, hair condition, prior treatments, and so forth. Most problems can be resolved or corrected. Remain calm and call on the underlying judgments and techniques that you have developed in your training and experience.Any technique of partial lightening is known as special effects highlighting. You will be adapting placement of lightened strands and colors in the hair to fit current styles and trends. As you perform special effects haircoloring you will see that light colors advance toward the eye, appearing larger and making detail more visible. On the other hand, contrasting dark colors will cause the area of the style to recede, appear smaller, and make styling details less visible.This is one area of cosmetology where you can really develop your creativity. You will try tone on tone, reverse highlighting, dimensional coloring, scrunching, and other techniques we will learn in this lesson.
4 Highlighting Some strands lighter Illusion of depth Does not contrast Details more visibleSPECIAL EFFECTS HAIRCOLORING: Any technique that involves partially lightening or coloring the hair is known as special effects haircoloring.HIGHLIGHTINGColoring some strands lighter than natural color.Adds a variety of lighter shades and illusion of depth.Does not contrast strongly with natural color usually.Lighter colors advance to the eye to appear larger. Details become more visible.
5 Reverse Highlighting Low lighting Some strands darker Dark areas recedeREVERSE HIGHLIGHTING: Also called low lighting.• Coloring some strands darker than natural.• Dark areas recede and appear smaller; details become less visible.
6 Cap Techniques Lightener or high-lift color Rinsed and shampooed Towel-blotted and conditionedToned if desiredMETHODS OF HIGHLIGHTINGCAP TECHNIQUE: Involves pulling clean strands of hair through a perforated cap with a thin plastic or metal hook. See Figure The number of strands pulled through cap determines the degree of highlighting achieved.Lightener or high-lift color is used.Lightener is rinsed and then shampooed from hair.Hair is towel-blotted and conditioned.Lightened hair is toned if desired. See Figures and
7 Foil Techniques Sliced or weaved Placed on foil or plastic wrap Apply lightener or colorSections sealedFOIL TECHNIQUEStrands are sliced or weaved out of a section. Placing foil in hair takes practice and discipline. Slicing involves taking a narrow 1/8" section of hair by making a straight part at scalp, positioning hair over foil and applying lightener or color. Weaving involves picking up selected strands of hair with a zigzag motion of comb and applying lightener or color only to those strands. See Figures andWeaved sections are placed on foil or plastic wrap.Lightener or color is applied.Weaved sections are sealed in the wrap.
8 Foil Patterns Face-frame Half-head Three-quarter head Full-head FOIL PATTERNS: The many patterns used with foil include face-frame, half-head, three-quarter head, and full-head, which all produce different highlights in different portions of head.

17 Toning Nonoxidative toner Traditional semipermanent Demipermanent TONING OVERHIGHLIGHTED AND DIMENSIONALLY COLORED HAIRIf hair is decolorized to the desired level, use of a toner may not be necessary.If a cool tonality is desired, a toner will be required to cancel out undesirable yellow contributing pigment. It is important to consider the varying degrees of porosity and difference in pigmentation from strand to strand.Avoid affecting untreated hair by:Using a nonoxidative toner containing no ammonia and requiring no developer. This type of color produces no lift and is gentle on the scalp and hair.Using traditional semipermanent color to deposit color without lift.Using demipermanent or long-lasting semipermanent haircolor as a no-lift deposit-only color; will not cause additional lightening and is longer lasting than temporary or traditional semipermanent colors.

20 Special Problems Gray hair Yellow discoloration SPECIAL PROBLEMS IN HAIRCOLOR AND CORRECTIVE COLORING: Each service is unique and should be preceded by a complete client consultation. Strand tests should be used to ensure more satisfactory results. However, occasionally challenges do occur in haircolor. Let’s take a look at a few you might encounter.GRAY HAIR: CHALLENGES AND SOLUTIONSGray hair can turn orange if lightener is not processed long enough. See Figures andYELLOW DISCOLORATION CAUSESSmokingMedicationSun exposureSome styling aids, lighteners, and haircolor removers will help remove yellow discoloration. Undesired yellow can often be overpowered by the artificial pigments deposited by violet-based colors of an equal or darker level than the yellow.
21 Special Problems Formulating for gray hair FORMULATING FOR GRAY HAIR Level 8 or lighter may not give complete coverage of gray because of the low concentration of dye found in lighter colors.Level 7 and darker can be used to create pastel and blond tones. Will provide better coverage.For 80% to 100% natural gray, the blond range is generally more flattering than a darker shade. Warm or cool tones may be chosen based on the client’s skin tone, eye color, and personal preference.When coloring salt and pepper hair to darker, color on color will make a darker color. Use a shade lighter than the naturally dark hair.
22 Presoftening Mix according to manufacturer’s directions Apply to resistant areaProcess at room temperatureRemove colorApply desired level of colorPRESOFTENING: Gray hair can be highly resistant and requires presoftening to allow proper penetration of color. It is a double-application service. It is applied, processed, and removed. Then tint is applied.Mix product according to manufacturer’s directions.Apply with brush or bottle in most resistant areas first.Process at room temperature for 5 to 20 minutes.Wipe color gently with cloth or paper towel to remove.Apply desired level and tone of color to achieve desired results.

36 Summary and ReviewWhat are the 3 most commonly used methods for highlighting?What are fillers, and for what purpose are they used?SUMMARY AND REVIEWThe world of professional haircolor offers both unlimited challenges and significant financial returns to the professional cosmetologist. Once you’ve mastered the theory and law of color as well as all the procedures and techniques used in haircoloring, you may choose to specialize as a colorist. Remember that all color begins with three primary colors: red, yellow, and blue. When any two primaries are mixed equally, a secondary color is created. All three primaries must be present to create brown. Violet is created from mixing red and blue; green is created from mixing yellow and blue; and orange is created by mixing red and yellow.There are several categories of haircolor including temporary, semipermanent, demipermanent, and permanent. As a professional cosmetologist, you will be able to analyze the level of natural haircolor as well as the level of the color desired. As in all professional cosmetological services, a thorough hair and scalp analysis must be completed in addition to a thorough client consultation prior to any haircolor service. When using any color that is aniline derivative, a patch test must be complete at least 24 hours prior to the service. All consultation and test results are recorded on the client record card. Results of each color service are also maintained on file on the client’s record card. Proper draping is essential to protect the client’s skin and clothing. Frequent strand testing is recommended to ensure quality results.In today’s lesson we learned about the special effects and procedures used for highlighting hair. In special effects as well as corrective hair color procedures, it’s important to remember such factors as porosity, foundation color, percentage and location of unpigmented hair, condition of hair, and desired results.Let’s review.What are three most commonly used methods for highlighting?ANSWER: The methods are cap, foil, and balayage, or free-form techniques.What are fillers, and for what purpose are they used?ANSWER: Fillers are preparations designed to help equalize porosity and deposit a base color in one application. Conditioner fillers are used to recondition damaged, overly porous hair. Color fillers are used when there is doubt as to whether the color result will be an even shade.
