Formula How-To: Toffee Almond by Schwarzkopf Professional

Victoria Wurdinger | October 16, 2015 | 1:32 PM

A soft mixture of light and dark tones creates a fresh and natural look that flatters every skin tone.




Natural level 5


Formula 1: One part (30 ml) Schwarzkopf Professional Igora Vario Blonde Extra Power Lightener with two parts (60 ml) Igora Royal Oil Developer 6% (20 volume)


Formula 2: Equal parts (60 ml) Igora Royal 9-1 with Igora Royal Oil Developer 9% (30 volume)


1. Divide hair into four sections working with the natural parting.


2. Start at the back with an approximately 2-inch-wide section. Backcomb the hair and start painting Formula 1 onto the mid-lengths and ends. Use cotton to separate the sections. Cover the back with a plastic wrap for additional moisture. Follow the same procedure on the sides, first backcombing, then painting highlights into the re-growth and lengths. Cover with plastic wrap. Process until desired lift is achieved (up to 45 minutes); rinse and shampoo.


3. Apply Formula 2 onto the re-growth. Sweep the color downward to create a false re-growth look. Use a feathering technique to soften the line of demarcation. Process until the re-growth shows a light lifting effect with a smooth gradation toward the mid-lengths. Process 30 minutes; then rinse and shampoo.

MAKEOVER: Three Sessions Of Beauty

Maggie Mulhern | March 2, 2017

Jenn Malone (@jmalonehair) at Agence Salon, San Dimas, California, says her client "had 85% virgin hair. Her goal is to be a 'rooty' platinum blonde while still keeping the 'lived in' look. My main goal was to get her to her desired color, while still maintaining the integrity of her hair. Patience is the key in achieving this!" How to here.
