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.

Marianne Lohr (@mannie_mak), a freelance artist based in Bethlehem,PA., says "My new client came in to see me because she was never happy with her blonde and how gold/yellow it was. She wanted to be an all over platinum blonde at first, but then had mentioned how she's always wanted to have purple hair. Her dream came true that day." Details here.
