The above guest came in to see Alicia Kiwacz, stylist at Aurelio Salon, and picked a swatch from Goldwell’s demi-permanent line, Colorance.

The client picked 8OR and wanted it on her ends only. Because of her training, Kiwacz chose to change the tone of her base and mid-shaft to a warmer color to compliment her ends. She was a natural level 7 and her ends were an 8 from the summer. For her roots and mid-shaft, Kiwacz used Goldwell Topchic 10 volume developer with 7K and a small amount of 7N to mute it a little.

For her ends, she used 8KG with 20 volume developer to get a little more vibrancy. Once the guest was washed, her ends were glazed with Goldwell Colorance 7KG and 8N roots to mid-shaft and her ends with the desired 8OR. “Her results were consistent and very rich in color pigment, and the glaze added additional reflective shine,” adds Kiwacz.
