Amy Godo (@color_ahead) of JV Hair Design, Stratford, Conn, has been coloring this client's hair since last year. "She was originally a faded reddish brown and wanted to be a blonde with a shadow root." Godo and client then decided to do something a bit more "colorful".

Here she shares the how-to for this dimensional and pretty transformation for what she describes as "A labor of love!":

Step 1: Fill the hair with Goldwell Colorance soft color 9GB =8G on damp hair. Directly over apply Goldwell Colorance 9GB=8G. Process for 20 minutes. Rinse and towel dry.

Step 2: Fill with Goldwell Soft Color foam 8G=7K to add more warmth. Then overlay with Goldwell Colorance 8G=7N. Process 20 minutes, then rinse and dry.

Step 3: For dimension, alternate in a color blocking style:

Formula 1 - Scruples Shadowlights 2GN = 4GN and 10 volume.

Formula 2 - Goldwell 5RR and 10 volume.

Step 4: Process for 30 minutes and then rinse from 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.

Sydney Julian (@sydneyjulianhair) of Design 1 Salon and Spa, Grand Rapids, Michigan, says her client, a college student, had been growing her air for years and needed and wanted a change. The hair was cut (12 inches) and donated to Wigs For Kids. After some layering, face framing and texturizing, Julian got busy with color. Formula here.
