TRANSFORMATION: Old Ombre To Steely Silver

Maggie Mulhern | May 20, 2016 | 4:27 AM

Kanika Young (IG: @kycolor) of Ceci Studio in Rosemead, CA, found she learned so much after training under Ramirez Tran and Sammi Wang.

Here, she shares how she put that training to work for this transformation: 

Client info: Client came in with major regrowth (approx 6" of level 3 virgin hair), a permanent base (level 5) and blonde mids/ends (level 8/9).

Step 1: Back to back slicing using Wella Blondor 30 volume with Olaplex No. 1, leaving out the already lightened mids/ends. Process for approximately one hour.

Step 2: Rinse and apply Olaplex No. 2 treatment for 10 minutes. Shampoo, rinse and blow dry. 

Step 3: Re-apply lightener using 30 volume with Olaplex No. 1 until lifted to a level 9/10. Process for approximately 45 minutes. Then bleach/wash mids/ends to brighten.

Step 4: Olaplex No. 2 treatment for 10 minutes then shampoo hair using Fanola No Yellow Purple Shampoo to cancel out any remaining warmth. Dry the hair.

Step 5: Apply Kenra SV 9 volume with Olaplex No. 1 all over. Then apply Kenra 1A 9 volume on roots and color melt the roots with the all over toner. Process for 10 minutes, rinse and shampoo.

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.

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.
