How To Paint Money Piece Highlights?

2. Part your hair and tie the hair up with a hairband or clip. Separate the sections with the comb and make sure the hair is thin, not just grab some of your hair and go for bleaching. Take a slice of your front hairline out, then organize the rest of your front hair on top with clips. And you need to repeat the step for creating layers and a natural look.
3. Put the foil under the part you try to bleach and apply the products from the mid to the end. Apply the bleach onto your strands, you can go all the way to your root if you want a full coloring. Or you can just paint the sections which you want to be different if you want to achieve a balayage effect. You can blend the products diagonally to make a more natural look when you reach the root where natural hair starts growing out.
4. Use foil to wrap the bleached part to keep the hair fully saturated for having a better result. Check the hair every 10-15 minutes until it reaches your expectation. Shampoo and condition the hair after the processing.
After some hard work, you can enjoy the result, and it’s not too much effort needed to maintain the look, you can use gentle and natural shampoo and conditioner to keep the vibrance of the color for a long time.
