Kenra Color Formula by Robb Dubre: Cool and Warm Blonding How To This blonde beauty, as seen in the April issue of MODERN SALON, was created by Kenra Artistic and Technical Director Robb Dubre. With a vision of "Blonde Contradiction," Dubre wanted to maintain the intergity of the hair while still showcasing cool and warm tones for a look that definitely turns heads.

“Today’s blondes are not interested in having just cool or just warm tones. They demand both,” Dubre says. “Creating a shimmering contradiction blond is easily replicated with a dimensional toning service, using Kenra Color Rapid Toners.”
