Formula: Ballet Slipper Blonde

Dani Waterman (@hairbydanileah), a Senior Stylist as well as the Social Media Manager for The Village on Main (@villageonmain), Northampton, MA., takes ballet classes on the side, "so I was particularly inspired and excited by this ballet slipper pink!"

Here she shares the details for this transformation:

"My co-worker Ali had previously been an all-over double-process blonde, but when she started to experience sensitivity to lightener on her scalp we opted for a heavy foil application instead. She is a natural level 6, and with Olaplex we've been able to lift her to a clear 10. She had a hint of leftover pink direct dye remaining in her ends before this service. We came up with this formula to blend and balance the various tones in her hair."

Regrowth: 1/2" Level 6 Ash Brown

Mid-ends: Level 10 pale yellow to white, with a tinge of faded pastel pink.


-Heavy foil (mostly slicing) using Goldwell Silklift Strong + 30 volume and Olaplex No.1. Process for 45 minutes.

-Rinse foils, towel dry

-Apply toner: 50ml Goldwell Colorance Demi Lotion + 20ml 10BB + 5ml 7PK and 1/8 oz. Olaplex No. 1. Process for 10 minutes.

-Rinse and apply Olaplex No. 2 for 10 minutes.

-Finish with Goldwell Blondes & Highlights Shampoo and Conditioner.

MAKEOVER: Basic Blonde To Purple/Lilac Melt

Maggie Mulhern | February 9, 2017

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.
