A large part of the clients that come into Celebrity Stylist Marie Ferro's Malibu, California salon—Marie's Hair Studio—come in asking for gray coverage. "The trick to working with mature women is enhancing their skin tone by adding depth around the face, melting tone into the midshaft and leaving the ends light and bright," says Ferro. "Creating dimension in the hair mimics what the hair did before it turned gray."

Ferro says to use a maximum of three tones to make the hair muddy. Follow her steps on how to re-create this look on your mature clients. It will make them look years younger!

STEP 1: Use Malibu C to remove any product and mineral build-up.

STEP 2: Paint in Base Goldwell Triflective 7NBP Colorance—30 mls 7NBP + 60 mls Colorance Lotion.

STEP 3: Foil in a diagonal section within the top, and vertical sections on the sides and back, alternating highlights with Goldwell Silklift strong 10 volume + Silklift Conditioning Serum with Colorance 7NBP. Use a comb in-between every other foil blending in lightly the base color. Process for 30 minutes.

STEP 4: Wash hair Goldwell Elumen Shampoo. Apply Goldwell Elumen [email protected][email protected] Process for 20 minutes and rinse with Goldwell Elumen Conditioner. Style with mixture Phytodefrisant Botanical Hair Relaxing Balm and Phyto 7 Daily Hydrating Botanical Cream to add shine.

Marianne Lohr (@mannie_mak), a freelance artist based in Bethlehem,PA., says "My new client came in to see me because she was never happy with her blonde and how gold/yellow it was.
