Freehand hair coloring.

This is generally done with the free hand, so you should be careful during making the liquid accurately, otherwise, it can give bad look.

Color bands use

Excess color

“Nope we’re not discussing a hair your ear, this is the point at which a shading extends. This can occur if an excess of the foil isn’t folded appropriately. As a result, it prompts over streaming out from the foil and onto parts of the hair that you don’t want to color.

“It’s not a good thing when some colorists depend upon toners for hair color when the hair is colored again and again it gives a flat look.
Add little amount to the toner with color for shine.
