Frances Canola (@frances_hairartist) is in the process of opening Bauhaus Salon in Orange, CA (opening Jan 2, 2017). MODERN found this lovely makeover and asked Canola for the details:

"My client colors her hair once a year so to keep her color low maintenance I decided to create a shadow root blonde. She tends to pull very warm so my goal was to have a more neutral blonde result."

Step 1: Foil highlight, using a babylight technique, using Kenra Ammonia Free lightener with 20 volume developer and Olaplex.

Step 2: While processing, paint the prelightened ends with the same lightener with 9 volume developer and Olaplex. 

Step 3: Process for 40 minutes. Rinse.

Step 4: Create a root shadow with Kenra 6A demi perm. Process for 5 minutes.

Step 5: Melt into 10SM from mid shaft to ends. Process for an addition one minute to give her a silvery blonde effect.

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.
