MAKEOVER: Faded Blonde To Electric Apricot

Maggie Mulhern | April 12, 2017 | 6:22 AM

Goldwell Regional Artistic Team Member, Steven Picciano’s (@steviewondaz) inspiration for the Electric Apricot Look came from three sources: the shape and design of the haircut, the model’s complexion and eye color, tied to Pantone’s color of spring 2017. Picciano analyzed the model’s skin tone and eye color to ensure the color direction would enhance and complement her natural features. Goldwell Global Ambassador for Hair Cutting, Jay Mahmood (@jaymahmood), gave the model a modern twist to a graduated bob using disconnection and asymmetry. To finish the look, Mahmood utilized classic Denman blow dry techniques. 

Step 1. First, pre-lighten regrowth to a level 9 using 35ml SilkLift 6% (20 vol) + 1 scoop SilkLift High Performance Lightener. After processing, shampoo with Dualsenses Rich Repair shampoo and towel dry hair well. 

Step 2 Next, apply 60ml Colorance lotion + 20ml 8G + 10ml10G to mid-length and ends of hair. Process for 25 minutes. Rinse and condition with Dualsenses Rich Repair Conditioner and towel dry hair well. 

Step 3: Apply Elumen Prepare from root to ends, comb through and dry the hair with a blow dryer.

Step 4: Apply 40ml Elumen [email protected] + 10ml [email protected] + 5ml [email protected] + 3ml [email protected] from roots to ends using the Elumen bottle and applicator comb. Process for 30 minutes.

Step 5: Shampoo with Elumen Wash and dry hair with a blow dryer. 

Step 6: Next apply 20ml Elumen [email protected] + 10ml [email protected] + 3ml [email protected] + 2ml [email protected] to the root. Then take 1” horizontal sections and soften the line of demarcation by combing with a wide tooth comb. Process for 30 minutes.

Step 7: Finally, shampoo hair with Elumen Wash and towel dry hair well. Finish the look by applying Elumen Lock for five minutes. Rinse and condition with Elumen Treat.

"This client came in with very brassy, yellow and orange tones throughout her hair," says Austin Senior. "She was all levels 8 and 9 with about 5 inches of her natural level 7 regrowth. Her goal was a very cool platinum blonde with no silver and a shadow root slightly darker/cooler than her natural level." Here Senior shares the details for this makeover.
