Dusty lavenders are sticking around for summer! Jason Backe recently worked with the color team at Christophe Salon in Newport Beach, California, to show off some L'Oréal Professionnel color and products.

Backe is the co-owner of Ted Gibson Salons, a brand ambassador for L’Oréal Professionnel and a highly sought-after colorist.

A stylist at Christophe Salon and self-proclaimed blonde and balayage specialist Ashley Rydbeck (@colorbyashley) volunteered to have Backe color her natural level 7 hair. 

Backe graciously shared his technique and formulations on his Instagram page. Take a look at how he pulled of Rydbeck's dreamy lavender locks!

STEP 1: For new growth (natural level 7), use L'Oréal Professionnel Majirel High Lift in equal parts Ash+ and Violet with 30vol. 

STEP 2: Process for 55 minutes. During last 15 minutes, apply L'Oréal Professionnel Blond Studio Sunkissed Lightening Oil with 20vol midlengths to ends to brighten.

STEP 3: Shampoo and dry hair. 

STEP 4: For lavender finish, use L'Oréal Professionnel Dialight 9.02 plus a pearl-sized drop of 4.20 with 15vol on new growth and 10.21 with a pearl-sized drop of 4.20 and 9vol for midlengths to ends. 

STEP 5: After processing about 10 minutes, add depth and drama with 4.20 and 15vol massaged away from scalp and toward ends. Do this for about 4 minutes. 

STEP 6: Shampoo, condition and dry hair. Style as desired.
