I went to get my hair done recently at my favorite salon ever and opted for a very soft balayage look. I really wanted to lighten up my complexion a little bit, without a drastic change. I basically had foilage done and toner afterwards, which was a looong process.
Even though I am more of a medium skin tone and tan fast in the summer, I prefer to be blonde. During the darker months of the year I turn really pale and my naturally dark hair makes me look super mean and strict. With this soft blonde, I feel my face seems a little brighter and less harsh.
This whole procedure took four hours in total, consisting of a foilage bleach, toner and gloss.
I really love how it turned out! But now that I got a taste of the blonde I kind of want to go a little lighter… maybe in summer!
