So much going on in the "before" from bands to a green tinge on those long, fragile ends. This carefully though-out color correction is the work of Lorie Therrien (@lorietherrien) who created a gorgeous even silver finish.
STEP ONE: Balayaged through upper red root-midshaft area (left 2-3 inches of the natural root out) with Schwarzkopf Blondeme Lightener and 30vol + Brazilian Bond Builder. Starting in the back section and working forward, I isolated each layer loosely with saran wrap, processed for 20 minutes.
STEP TWO: Applied Blondeme Lightener and 20vol + Brazilian Bond Builder through midshaft, then applied Blondeme 7vol + b3 to ends. Processed another 20 minutes.
Washed, conditioned and dried before applying color.
Shadow Root Formula:
Schwarzkopf Vibrance 5-1 + 6vol on first 3-4 inches of root, blurred into equal parts Vibrance 5-1/9-1 + 6vol for the next 3-4 inches.
Ends: Schwarzkopf Royal 9.5-22 + 6vol, processed 20 minutes.
Rinsed, conditioned, trimmed 3-4 inches, reshaped and finished with Kevin Murphy styling products.
