Audrey Whitt (@hairby.audrey) creative color and Balayage specialist at Salon SAS in Huntington, WV, is "driven by extreme passion for all things beauty and I love being able to not only change someone's hair but to change the way they feel about themselves!" When we saw this transformation on her Instagram page, we asked for more details. "She came to me as a first time client looking for a fun vivid color. She had about 2 inches of regrowth level 6 and her mids to ends was a warm 7/8."

Here Whitt shares the HOW TO:

STEP 1: To the root area apply Schwarzkopf BlondMe with 20 volume, and then the same lightener with 30 volume and Olaplex to the mids and ends of her hair. Process for 40 minutes. Rinse.

STEP 2: Then apply Kenra Demi 10sm and 8sm equal parts with a line of violet booster (to cancel the warmth) followed by Olaplex step 2. Process for 30 minutes. Dry completely.

STEP 3: Apply a blend of Pravana Violet with Black booster on the entire underneath using a zigzag part sectioning out below the occipital bone. Also apply as a shadow root.

STEP 4: To the top section apply Pravana Lavender with a dot of Violet. Process for 30 minutes, rinse and dry.

This service took about 5 hours from start to finish.

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.
