Kelly Ries (@boldsandblended) of Ellicott City, Maryland, says her new client was just not happy with her color. “She had been several places and kept asking for a dark brown with balayage and wasn’t getting the depth or dimension that she wanted.” 

Here is what Ries did to add more contrast and meet her request:

STEP 1: Color regrowth (some grey) with Paul Mitchell XG color 4N. 

STEP 2: Balayage in V formation using Wella Blondor +20 volume with Olaplex added.

STEP 3:  Apply base color in the middle space of the “V” to create dimension. 

STEP 4: Color about 4-5 inches of mids in between foils with base color. Melt down to ends with 5N+6N.

STEP 5: Process for 20 minutes. Shampoo with Paul Michell Awaphui Wild Ginger.

STEP 6: Glaze with Paul Mitchell The Demi 6BV+9N+8N+6G for 10 minutes. 

This season’s trend in natural hair color--like this dimensional golden blonde—is to take...
