Even the most skilled colorist can encounter that "tiger tail" stripe mistake when

viewing the scalp area of a new painted or wrapped highlight.

One reason for this might be that your lightener has been mixed to a consistency that

is "too loose" and not pasty enough.

BUT, if this ever happens to you or to another salon colorist, the easiest way to quickly

and effectively ERASE this error (which usually happens at the face frame where the

hair is thinner and less dense). Here's what to do:

Mix a creme DEMI formula with five volume developer. Take care to cover the "mistake"

thoroughly. Process for 15 - 20 minutes at room temperature. You can rinse these out

using a squirt bottle on the area.. with coil cotton and a towel. There is no reason to

take the client back to the sink for an "all over" rinse.

One of the formulas that has worked well for me.. even on blondes -- is Wella Color Touch:

1 ounce of 5/1

1/4 ounce of 4/0
