Sami Schneider (@samihairmagic), a Color Specialist at House of Color, Colorado Springs, CO says "I received a message on Facebook from a girl who is expecting and wanted to color her hair pink if she was having a girl and blue if she was having a boy. I was so excited because I've always been wanting to do some gender reveal hair!! She found out she was having a girl and was beyond thrilled. Pink hair it is. I was so excited to be part of such an amazing moment for her and her family and friends."

Here Schneider shares the HOW TO for her "revealing" pink shade:

Step 1: Using all Color Intensity colors from Joico,  apply to root: Magenta and Wild Orchid (1:1).

Step 2: Hand melt the remaining pieces with:

-Pink & Hot Pink (1:1)

-Soft Pink and Light Purple (diluted with Clear)

-a few Magenta pieces

Step 3: Process for 25 minutes. 

Step 4: Prep with Joico K-PAK Color Therapy Restorative Styling Oil and style with Joico Heat Protectant and Joico Dry Oil Spray.

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.
