Nicole Benson (hairby_nicole_benson) of Studio B Hair Colourists, Cronulla, Sydney, Australia, says, "My client came to me with 3 (natural, old level 6 tint, and really brassy blonde) different bands going through her hair with a lot of brassy tones. She explained she wanted a much lighter, cleaner blonde with still a slight deeper root area. Micro foils were the only way to go to get a much lighter result in 1 sitting."
Step 1: In foils, apply Redken Flash Lift powder +6%.
Step 2: Between foils apply free hand highlights using the same formula. Process for 40 minutes, rinse and towel dry.
Step 3: Tone roots (isolating face frame) using Lakme 7+silver +1.9%. Process for 10 minutes.
Step 4: Apply a mid-ends toner: Lakme 10.22+0/00+pearl+1.9%. Process for 5 minutes.
Step 5: Rinse and apply an Olaplex treatment for 15 minutes.
