Hey BCTV! Nikki Lee is with us this week,  and she’s going to demo one of her go-to highlighting techniques specifically for her brunette girls. Nikki’s client is much finer up top and has some delicate baby hairs, so she is going to concentrate her color mostly on the bottom of her hair and work her way up thus leaving more of her natural depth at the roots. This is perfect for that low maintenance client that isn’t trying to come in every couple months for a root touch up. We love Nikki’s application process; she gets right in there and does much thicker pieces than we expected. And don’t you worry, she’ll show you exactly what to do to keep those highlights from looking too chunky or stripy. Be sure to tune in next week to see Nikki tone, break the base, and of course for the final look!
