My name is Marty. I work with Salon Republic. I'm in Studio 1A, and today I'm going to talk to you about how to avoid some bad highlighting jobs. The first conception when you put foils into the hair is that you can move those foils around, and that's absolutely not true. When you apply your first foil highlight, you want to make sure that once it's in, you never touch it. So, you want to work neat and organize so as to make sure the foils don't slip and get color onto other parts of the hair. Another mistake done with hair coloring with foils is that they don't apply the product all the way through the hair and you get very uneven results. So, it's important to make sure you saturate every strand that you are foiling to get even coloration of that strand. Another mistake is to apply too much color to the foil line. When you close your foil, you actually seed beds out of the foil. It's very important that you brush your products up to the hairline, not over the foil line and making sure that it's thoroughly saturated so it doesn't leak out of the foil. My name is Marty, and those are some techniques and tips to make sure you don't botch up a highlights.
