Joseph Cuozzo (@joseph_cuozzo) and Tonya Cuozzo (@tonyacuozzo), Master Color experts with Wella Professional and Owners of “Cuozzo Studio for Hair” Madison, NJ, and Oranjestad, Aruba, tagged (and wowed) us with this amazing transformation. We tracked them down for more details. "This client has experienced some scalp sensitivity during past applications," says Tonya, "so we chose 'Wella Blondor Cream lightener' for its gentle lifting process and Wella's new 'Innosense' line to tone. We went with this product because it has the shades we were going for. Innosense has colors that are on trend right out of the tube. We like using the 0/0 to soften some of the shades. That's what we did here. The 10/88 and 10/95 are amazing! Innosense does not contain the molecules pPD and pTD, it's great for clients who have scalp sensitivity but still want a full spectrum of colors."
