"My guest came in with very blotchy uneven color," says Annette Gavidia (@hairbyannetteg), owner of Sei Bella Studio, West Covina, California. "She arrived with 1 inch of virgin hair and tons of brass." 

Here Gavidia shares the details for this correction:

Formula 1: (prelighten) Schwarzkopf Blondme lightener with 30 vol & 1/8 oz Olaplex

Formula 2: (prelighten) Schwarzkopf Blondme lightener with 10 vol & 1/8 Olaplex

Formula 3: (shadow root) Pravana 7.11 with an inch of ash blue booster and zero lift developer

Formula 3: (toner) Fanola Silver with 3.5 vol developer

Step by step:

Step 1: Foil back to back with formula 1, leaving 2 inches off the scalp.

Step 2: Apply formula 2 to the hair that is already a level 7/8.

Step 3: Process for about 45 minutes.

Step 4: Rinse, apply Olaplex #2 for 10 minutes. Shampoo and condition.

Step 5: Dry the hair and relighten any hair that was still a level 8 or darker. Use another batch of formula 2 for 30 minute. Shampoo using Fanola's No Yellow shampoo. Towel dry.

Step 6: Apply formula 3 from root down 3 inches. 

Step 7: Apply formula 4 from zone 2 to ends. Process both formulas for 20 minutes. Rinse and condition the hair.

How To Winterize a Summer Blonde: Babylights with Reverse Balayage using Redken pH Bonder

Alison Alhamed and Jamie Newman | November 29, 2016

Our summer blonde made the perfect model to demonstrate the beauty of Redken’s new pH Bonder because although she isn’t frequently coloring her hair, living in New York City means she’s walking outside a lot with exposure to the sun and city elements—plus thermal damage from regular use of a curling wand or flatiron. So with protection and hair health being the two key benefits of the additive, she was all in.
