COLOR CORRECTION: Bad Brass and Bands To The Perfect White Blonde

Maggie Mulhern | June 7, 2016 | 12:39 PM

Terra Shapiro (@Terrashapiro_atJuanSalon), of Juan A Salon, Sherman Oaks, California, a blonde and color correction specialist, had a challenge. "My client @amynicole1 had previously dyed brown hair who tried going lighter at another salon with undesirable results.  She finally found me and wanted me to rid the band of color she had her roots and all the brassy tones and she wanted me to make her a cool icy blonde."

Here Shapiro shares the HOW-TO in her own words:

First I mixed Olaplex #1 into Framesi Diamond Bleach with 40 volume on the band of color beyond her regrowth.  After 15 minutes I pulled the color through to half inch before her ends. The last step was to lift her natural root. Once desired lightness was achieved, I mixed Redken Shades EQ 9v and 9t with Shades developer and toned her from root to end. Then she sat with Olaplex #2 for 30 minutes and then was rinsed and shampooed. Viola!  The perfect white blonde!"

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.
