Iris Smith, owner of Lux Salon in Sockton, California, created this gorgeous caramel balayage technique with Saran Wrap. Her client came into the salon with grown out colored hair before she was lifted to a naturally golden blonde. Here, we share the formula. (Check out Smith's work here on Instagram!)
