Makeover: Going From Elsa To A More Natural Blonde

"Sydney has been a client of mine since she was in 6th grade and now is sophomore in college," says Jamie Park (@hairbyJpark) of J Park's Studio, Elkhart, Illinois.  "She's always been a blonde, but occasionally she throws a curve at me and we play!" Sydney previously had a root bump to blend in her natural level 8 roots. She had been away at college and the new environment grabbed warmth on her mids and ends.

On her last visit Sydney was ready to bring a little fall into her look.

Here Park shares how she added a little smudging at the root and tweaked the formula to add a little beige to her icy blonde:

•Using Redken Freehand Clay Lightener with 40 volume with Olaplex, paint gently at the root line. Saturate at the mids and ends.

•Process for 45 minutes, no heat and open air.

•Rinse and shampoo. Evaluate the root color. "I made the decision to do a soft root bump to create a natural seamless look."

•Section the hair into quadrants and apply Wella Illumina 10/69 with 10 volume to the roots. Let stand for 8 minutes.

•As the roots are processing, pull the color down through the mids and ends to give her the perfect tone and creates seamless blend. Process according to the manufacturers instructions and then rinse.

•Finish with an Olaplex treatment and style with a Babyliss 1.25" barrel.

How To Winterize a Summer Blonde: Babylights with Reverse Balayage using Redken pH Bonder

Alison Alhamed and Jamie Newman | November 29, 2016

Our summer blonde made the perfect model to demonstrate the beauty of Redken’s new pH Bonder because although she isn’t frequently coloring her hair, living in New York City means she’s walking outside a lot with exposure to the sun and city elements—plus thermal damage from regular use of a curling wand or flatiron. So with protection and hair health being the two key benefits of the additive, she was all in.
