How-To: From Stripes to Dimension and Lightness

Anne Moratto | August 8, 2016 | 2:20 PM

We're big fans of Joy LaMay (@joydivided), a master colorist who shares her fix for this stripe-fright. 

 

"My poor new friend was DEVASTATED when this happened to her," LaMay says. "After a proper consultation she wanted a soft dimensional brunette that would be easy to care for."

 

HOW TO: 

 

STEP ONE: I started by using equal parts of 5/07 and 6/07 with 10vol at the base and pulling it down.

 

STEP TWO: Then with Wella Color Touch.. 20g 6/35, 15g of 7/73 and 1.9% for the ends.

 

"Now she has dimension and lightness without the stripes!"

"This client came in with very brassy, yellow and orange tones throughout her hair," says Austin Senior. "She was all levels 8 and 9 with about 5 inches of her natural level 7 regrowth. Her goal was a very cool platinum blonde with no silver and a shadow root slightly darker/cooler than her natural level." Here Senior shares the details for this makeover.
