The Latina songstress and former The Voice judge is known for her luscious blonde locks. Here, Tracey Cunningham of Redken, shares her tips to recreate Shakira's color with Redken's New Flash Lift.

Flash Lift is Redken's first powder lightener to achieve up to eight levels of lift. The high adherence, creamy formula allows for precise application and uniformity. A conditioning pro-vitamin B5 achieves optimal lift with less damage to the hair.

"Flash Lift allows me to customize my client's blondes -from extreme platinum blonde results to natural, balayage highlights. I also love the consistency, and more importantly, the consistent lift!" - Tracey Cunningham, Redken Creative Consultant for Color  

TRY IT: Flash Lift 1:1 ratio mixed with 30 vol. Pro-oxide Cream Developer

STYLIST TIP: Once the foils are in place, apply your favorite Shades EQ Cream or Gloss shade to the hair in between the foils to enhance the entire look.
