When actress Jessica Stroup
moved from horror flicks (Prom Night,
The Hills Have Eyes) to the CW's
90210, she needed a more sophisticated
style for her role as Erin Silver.
To the rescue: Joico Celebrity Colorist George Papanikolas, who works at Andy LeCompte Salon in West Hollywood. Here's how he transformed her natural Level-6 tresses.
Base Formula: Joico Vero K-Pak Chrome, 1 oz. 4N, 1 oz. 6N with 4 oz. Chrome Developer (8.5 volume)
Highlights: Vero Light with 40-volume Developer
Caramel Gloss: 1-1/2 oz. Joico Vero K-Pak Chrome 8N with 3 oz. Chrome Developer
Procedure: Brush baliage highlights on the outer layer, right at the part. Apply to create finer highlights at the root that gradually get thicker and heavier towards the ends. Apply the base to the rest of the hair and process for about 20 minutes, or until highlights are golden blonde. Shampoo, towel dry, apply gloss and process for five to 10 minutes.
