The inspiration for this color comes from, beachy, earthy tones. Naturally sun-kissed blonde is achieved by weaving in multiple shades of color. Contrast is necessary for the lighter pieces to appear lustrous. Lowlights are a crucial part of the process to create depth and movement. By weaving randomly, you can achieve warm, natural-looking tones.

1. Begin by weaving Formulas 2 and 3 through the back of the head to add darker shades of blonde. To gradually build lighter shades toward the hairline, shift to alternating Formulas 1 and 2 as you move up and forward. When foiling is completed, process 50 minutes. Then rinse thoroughly, cleanse and towel dry.
