Soft Variation

Transition your winter blondes to their summer look by adding a pop of brightness around the face while keeping the interior of the hair soft with a lower maintenance grow out. Using a combination of Artego balayage lightener and L’Oréal Professionnel Platine Precision Powder lightener, highlights were foiled around the hairline to create a light frame around the face. Balayage highlights were added throughout the hair to create a bright blonde with soft variation.

According to colorists at diPietro Todd Salon, based in California’s Bay Area, seamless variation is what 2015 is all about. “With seamless color, we are mirroring the natural fluid beauty that exists in nature keeping color bright, bold, and playful,” says Emily Kern, who created the color finishes here. “Coloring with intent, without the harsh contrasting lines of variation.”
