Haircolor Placement

Learn how to use diagonal back placement and see how it affects your end haircolor result.


There are 3 lines we work with in haircolor placement: horizontal, vertical and diagonal
Diagonal placement is used to blend and soften or enhance movement
There are two types of diagonal lines we work with. Diagonal back enhances backward movement in a design by drawing the eye away from the face. Diagonal forward enhances forward movement in a design by drawing the eye toward the face.
When creating diagonal placement, start the application about one inch from the scalp area. This will prevent product from seeping onto the other hair.
Make sure not to “swirl” the ends, which may cause uneven haircolor results. Instead, fold the hair onto itself and apply the product. Fold or cover with foil.
