The consultation consisted with learning about Liz's hair care routine, how she likes to wear her hair, and what would flatter her skin and face. Liz asked for her hair to be "thinned out" in the back because the hair is thick and takes awhile to dry. Liz wanted to go lighter and wanted a color that would not show any obvious lines of demarcation. What is the line of demarcation? The line of demarcation is the line of new hair growth showing.
Carrie's solutions: Liz likes to wear her hair in a pony tail for work and she enjoys it straightened. Carrie gave her a long side bang and layered the hair to frame her face on both sides. Carrie also explained using thinning shears does not create the correct texture to help with the "thick hair". Instead, Carrie added extra layers in the back to help create movement but also alleviate some of the time used to dry the hair.
For color, Carrie lightened Liz's hair for about 8 minutes, using a top panel partial highlights pattern.
