FORMULA: Balayage For A Bright Blonde

Maggie Mulhern | May 13, 2016 | 8:24 PM

"Courtney was actually a new client who found me through social media," says Amanda Rae (@hairby.amandarae) of Amara Salon and Spa (@amarasalonandspa), Regina, Saskatchewan. "She came in with about 2" of regrowth from a full head of foils and said that she wanted to be a lighter blonde, but more natural. She brought in pictures of a balayage blonde. Her goal was to still be super blonde but something that was easier to maintain since she is a student."

Here Rae shares the how to for this correction that took 2 hours:

-Apply foils in slices using Redken Flashlift with 20 volume throughout all the hair.

-In between the foils paint using Redken Shades Cream 1 oz 7Ngr and .5 oz 9Na.

-Pull the color through at different lengths.

-After processing rinse and towel dry the hair.

-Tone with Redken Shades EQ 09V for 10 minutes.
