Here are some of our favorites from @paintedhair:
Formula: Oligo Pro Cool Toned Blonde mixed with Redken PH Bonder
Toner: Redken Shades EQ
“My client was previously foiled with babylights, over processed, and left with no dimension,” Nikole explains.
FIFTH SESSION transformation using Oligo Pro Balayage Clay Lightener
PROCESS: “I color melted Redken Color Gels Lacquers 6N with 10V volume ProOxide into Redken Shades EQ 08N+09GI mixed with Redken PH Bonder. “Sessions are so important with color corrections, it takes time to balance color, strengthen hair and grow length!”
