"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.

Here Zaccone shares the how-to:

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.
