TRANSFORMATION: "Hidden Fun" Peek-a-boo Fantasy Haircolor

Maggie Mulhern | May 9, 2016 | 7:00 AM

What do you do with a client who has a conservative job but wants to be adventurous with her haircolor at the same time? Here's an option! Try the peek-a-boo technique!

Amy Godo (@color_ahead) of JV Hair Design Salon in Stratford, Connecticut says, "This client was looking for some fun, fantasy color and she found me on Instagram. This was her first visit with me. She has a conservative job as a pharmaceutical tech, so it had to be hidden like 'underlights.' She let me choose the colors and I just love this combination! She had old, black box color underneath so I had to be careful during the lightening process."

Here, Godo shares the how-to:

STEP 1: Section off, ear to ear, in the back underneath. Pre-lighten with Scruples Power Blonde and 40 volume with Bondplex in the formula to maintain the integrity of the hair. Lighten to a level 9-10.

STEP 2: Shampoo and apply Step 2 Bondplex and leave in 10-15 minutes.

STEP 3: Tone to remove remaining gold and create a neutral palette using Goldwell 5 Minute Express Toner 9 Silver. Shampoo and dry hair.

STEP 4: Section off the pre-lightened back from the rest of the hair. To the top apply Scruples Shadowlights 6NA with Demi developer.

STEP 5: To create the peek-a-boo "underlights" to the pre-lightened section apply Joico Fiery Coral, Joico Mermaid Blue, Scruples Purple and Scruples Pink.

STEP 6: Process for 30 minutes and then shampoo the top color only, using cold water.

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.
