HOW-TO: Illuminating Blonde Hair Color With a Light Shadow Root

by MODERN Staff | September 25, 2018

Light and shade at strategic points, along with erased roots, create a Truss Professional blonde that’s natural, shiny and illuminating.

FORMULA & APPLICATION

Formula 1: 1 scoop (0.18oz) Truss 8x Powder + 1 part Truss Air Libre with 2 parts 20-volume developer

Formula 2: 1 scoop (0.18oz) 8x Powder + 2 oz Truss semi-permanente color 7.0 (Medium Blonde) with semi-permanent developer, per manufacturer’s directions

 

  1. Start at the nape by taking a zigzag parting. Tease this first section, and apply Formula 1. Then continue with zigzag partings and teasing them as you work up the back. Apply the formula in a brick-lay pattern, leaving out every other section. Repeat the sectioning and application procedure through the entire back.
  2. Move to the side. To add brightness near the face, begin by applying Formula 1 to two, back-to-back zigzag partings. Then repeat the entire application procedure.
  3. Repeat Step 2 on the opposite side. Process until you reach the desired degree of lightness. Then massage each strand to begin removing excess product. This reduces the power of the lightening mixture. Rinse, shampoo and apply a reconstructor.
  4. Apply Formula 2 to all damp hair. Process 15 minutes, then rinse, shampoo and condition.
