The Layered Look

Semi-custom colors and designs created via layering are increasingly showing up at trade show booth demos and continuing education classes. Clients love walking out of your salon owning a look no one else has, plus this technique can breathe life back into older shades your clients have gotten bored with. You can layer with so many different mediums. Here are a few to try.
