Three Steps To The Perfect Blonde

Allyssa Cox (@allyssaofbellavoi) of Bella Voi Hair Studio, Mountville, PA, says this client, a regular, has been coming to her for about two years now. "She also happens to be one of my very close friends and it is always a blast having her in the salon. She first came to me with long, virgin hair and wanted to go shorter and progressively lighter. After the first time, she was hooked and we have been going lighter and brighter since."

Here Cox shares the how-to for this latest session:

Step 1: Feather in Aveda Enlightener (30g powder + 55g 30 volume + 5g cream booster) in small sections throughout the hair, staying off the roots.

Step 2: While processing pull some foil highlights throughout the top, working to the root.

Step 3: Process for 15 minutes then rinse, shampoo and tone with Aveda 5 minute toner (40g Ash + 10g Beige + 50g liquid) and process for 5 minutes. Says Cox, "This Aveda toner formula is my go to!"  

NOTE: Extensions, colored with same formula, added.
