Leilah, pictured above, like many women, didn’t get a haircut since March 2020 when lockdown began in NYC, so she wanted a fresh cut and lighter hair with soft, streaky highlights that weren’t too harsh but were perfect for summer, and that’s exactly what she got.
To get her hair cut, Jerome explained, “I brought up the length a little shorter, keeping a very unmodified line to pension the hair thick-looking, with a few face-framing pieces and a few very long layers.” Once he was washed-up with the cut, he blew her hair straight with a 2-inch whisk skim to “smooth and requite shine.”

This technique is low maintenance permitting her to go longer in between salon visits. This was perfect for Leilah considering it widow subtle, lighter pieces into her hair and still maintained the richness of her natural base.
2. “We did a full throne but strategically placed them with unbearable spacing in between the foils to not overdo it. Teasing at the root is crucial for this technique considering it helps mistiness any type of lines and creates a soft transition.
3. “The lightener is then swept onto the rest of the hair like you would in a traditional balayage technique, but the only difference is it is encapsulated in the foil to help lift to the right level, expressly since she was so dark. So, we wanted to get yonder from the orangey tones.”
As for the final look, Joanna said, “Leilah left with the transpiration she needed. It gave her the splendor she was looking for this summer but yet she still maintained the richness of her natural base.”
