Sexy Summer Blonde FormulaLighter, brighter days translates to lighter, brighter color for your clients. It seems the change in seasons welcomes highlights, dimensional lifting and contouring with lights and brights. In this how-to featured in the April issue of MODERN SALON, It&ly Hairfashion artist Pasquale Caselle creates a sexy, rooty blonde that screams summer.

The Artist:
Pasquale Caselle
International Master Colorist, IT&LY Hairfashion

The Vision:
Summer hair is about simplicity—using two or three different tones in the same color family to achieve a beautiful effect rather than extreme contrasts.
Keep clients’ roots two shades darker than ends, graduating through midshaft for a natural glow.

The Formula and Application:
Natural/base: Level 7 dark blonde
Formula A: Intense Blonde SSD Colorly 20/20 with 30-volume Oxily 20/20 Developer
Formula B: Easily Blond 20/20 Bleaching powder with 40-volume Oxily 20/20 Developer

Step 1: Quickly apply Formula A all over head; process for 30 minutes
Step 2: After 15 minutes of processing Formula A, highlight with slices of Formula B, with one-inch spaces between sections taken diagonally from front to back.
Step 3: Process, shampoo and style.
