HOW-TO: Winter Ice Haircolor

New to Nashville, Tennessee, this client wanted to go platinum. "She had a previous on-scalp lightening service but still needed some uneven levels of lift corrected and refined," says Sarah Crews, Nashville hairstylist/Kerastase Tech Team Artist at Studio Gaven Haircolour Salon. "Since she'd just had on-scalp lightening service, I wanted to go easy on the scalp."

Here, Crews shares how she created this "Winter Ice" finish:

STEP 1: Prepped with Redken Pre-Art & Hair Cleansing Cream.

STEP 2: Went old-school by pulling out some Lamar bleach. Process for 30 minutes.

STEP 3: Glaze: equal parts Redken 09V and Crystal Clear 000 with Processing solution.

STEP 4: Shampooed and conditioned with Kerastase Bain Force Architecte and Ciment Antiusure.

STEP 5: Finished with Kerastase Ciment Thermique for heat protection and strength/reinforcement, then styled with Kerastase Lift Vertige and Formme Fatale, finishing with Kerastase Short Mania for texture, followed by a quick mist of Laque Couture for hold.
