Toning 101

Every coloring and blonding session requires attention to detail when it comes to toning. The toning service blends the seams of your foils and creates a soft grow-out for your client, yet has the potential to over-blend or darken your hard work, so it’s important to do it right. In this three-lesson course, Tabitha Dueñas shares how to master the art of root shadowing and toning. She covers the most frequently used toning placements—the tap, the shadow and the melt—as well as when to choose which and who to place them on.

You will learn:

  • The art of root shadowing and toning
  • How to keep your blonde clients really bright
  • How to blend foil lines from your foiliage looks
  • How to create a teardrop shape for your shadows
  • Multiple options for hairline shadowing
  • How to create a perfect melt
  • Wet balayage

“thank you”


“Great information, and rally goes into detail on toning. I have a problem with how long these techniques take. It’s not an accessible approach for most hairdressers, we don’t have assistants or the time to take 1/8 inch subsections. Can we please have videos with more realistic & efficient approaches to highlighting and toning hair?”
