0:00 - 2:36 this is a little different from your average salon setup because I have this a nice large table here I have these things called placards which actually hold the hair so that when I pull out to put them in it keeps the hair nice and separated for me I have the magazines on top in order to keep the hair down and to prevent myself from pulling a bundle down that once these are my little latch hooks that hold the cylinders for me the cylinders will go around my models hair the extension will be placed in the cylinder and then I will clamp down these are the pliers that I use when clamping down the extensions these are basic jewelry making pliers I like thin nose at the tips um everybody's got their own way of working with it but I like a nice fine tip to clamp down this is a little different it's got a little stronger torque to it and I keep two pairs just in case I've dropped one and also pliers do break and I did have a pair of pliers break on me and one time years ago that was the only that I had so I always come prepared with a number of them in case that comes again this is a piece that we won't be working with today but it is very important for what we're doing this is how you open the cylinders to move the hair up there's two small holes in the supplier maybe I should play something maybe a little better and you place the cylinder in there and we'll pop the back open into a circle it's a really fantastic piece of equipment and you can also clamp down on the extension but it's pretty thick and rounded and I just prefer to have thinner too I keep a number set to come with me in case one fits the floor I don't have to get up get back down sanitize it keep working so I just roll up having a lot of things available time so you can see there's a lot of two's here a lot of duplicates

2:36 - 3:49 so let me ask you are there any specific products that you recommend that you know help the application go easier or anything that you use to prep the hair before I don't really actually use a whole lot on the hair because I don't want a buildup I don't want any kind of silicone based product down there I ask that the models put the conditioner towards the ends of their hair only I want them to have clean dry hair I don't want somebody to come in having shampoo their hair three days ago and having a lot of oil on it because with this technique with the cylinder if there's too much product if there's too much conditioner if there's too much oil on the hair it will create a slip and I never color the hair the same day that I put the extensions in never do that because the color will also create just a little bit of layer until you give it that first shampoo so you want to have the hair as clean as possible and what you will get the best results because then it's just the hair the extension and the lock the ends of the hair like that a conditioner is fine

3:49 - 4:35 so how do you begin this process I begin oh you know there's one thing before we do that I want to show you because I talked about this earlier I talked about shadowing the root what's the extensions so these are the hair pieces that I shadowed the roots with you can see I made it a little bit darker to kind of blend in with hers and then have the lighter hair come through at the end let me show you over here so it's just shadowed and I took varying shades of color a 7n and an a 10 can you see from that there you go and put them through a different length some are a little shorter some are a little longer so we got to blend through on her

4:35 - 5:29 and you guys are so lucky because I had to pick this hair earlier and I colored it myself and it took a little over an hour and a half now here in compounds sells pre shadowed root hair you're so lucky that you don't have to do thickness you can do it if you want to if you want to keep coloring it yourself but here's the thing it takes more time it takes more energy you have to pass that time the cost of your time along to the client so by having the pre shadow group which works really well with the current hair trends of slightly ombre hair a routier look you can avoid the work you can avoid the expense and yeah I look forward to the next time that I purchase a shadowed root instead of spending a couple of hours working on it
