"This is a regular client of mine," says Connie Fusaro (@colorbycon) of The Color Cafe Hair Studio, Greenwich, Conn. "She loves to try new and different things! It's always fun doing her hair. The picture on the left was done a few months ago when she wanted to be be really blonde for the summer." And now it's time to tone down as she moves in to fall.

Step 1: To the root apply Wella Color Touch 5/0 1/4 5/1.

Step 2: To the midshaft, color melt, in foils, Color Touch equal parts 6/0 + 6/3 alternated with 6v. Leave out the ends.

Step 3: Balayage the ends using Blondor with 30 volume.

Step 4: Process for 30 minutes and rinse.

Step 5: Gloss with Wella Relights /86 ribbon /18 6v. Process for 8 minutes. Rinse.
