Sonya Dove (@sonyadove), owner of The Doves by DNA and a Wella global artist, is one of the most respected educators in the industry and one of the most talented.

We've talked with her about her health practices, and we've shared her formulas and some of her many collections. Now we also follow her on social media where we spotted this shining, buttery blonde on her Instagram feed (check it out!). Dove is very generous with other stylists, always sharing her knowledge and, here, her formula:
