This question came from the American Board of Certified Haircolorists:
“When you Foil Highlight a head of hair do you: follow a set pattern for all highlights or, place your foils according to the clients hair and your final outcome?”
My answer : I follow the cut and ask myself where is the hair falling and what parts to accentuate. Where do I want to see the lights and the shadows? I use a free from reactionary approach. In addition, I especially consider the cowlicks to be sure the color falls nicely. I pay attention to complexion and eye color before beginning! I love to do highlights, as you can see!
