Makeover: Box Blonde To Icy Blonde With Gentle Blue Peek-a-boos

Maggie Mulhern | August 20, 2016 | 5:04 AM

Willow Shull (@willowshull) of Kharma Design Studio, Victoria BC, caught out eye with this gorgeous white ice blonde accented with some pretty blue peek-a-boo pieces. 

"Her hair was already pretty light golden blonde," says Shull of her client. "She has been coloring her roots with box color at home."

Here Shull shares the how to:

Step 1: Apply Wella Blondor with 30 volume catalyst and Olaplex in a virgin application (off root).

Step 2: After about 10 minutes go through and apply the Blondor with 20 volume catalyst to the root. Seal the hair with a pop up bag to keep the heat in. Process for 30 minutes and then rinse.

Step 3: Tone with Kenra 10SM ("but I still didn't feel like it was icy enough so I applied Milkshake Purple shampoo and let it sit for 5 minutes.") Rinse and dry.

Step 4: Balayage throughout the hair, from mids to ends, using Joico Color Intensity "Mermaid Blue" mixed with a bit of "Clear" in foils.

Step 5: Process for 20 minutes then rinse with cold water.

MAKEOVER: Basic Blonde To Purple/Lilac Melt

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.
