Aveda Color How-To: White Jasmine Blonde
Blonde means different things to different people. Creating the perfect blonde is about envisioning the guest’s desired tone and using haircolor to achieve beautiful results. For this White Jasmine look, Ian Michael Black, Aveda global artistic director, hair color, pre-lightened hair to establish a perfect palette for creating subtle shade variations. “We customized the formula with Aveda Universal 0N to accommodate fine textures and achieve a very light result,” Black says.
FORMULA AND APPLICATION
Natural level 6
Formula 1: 1 scoop Aveda Enlightener powder lightener + 30 g Enlightener creme booster with 60 ml 10-volume color catalyst
Formula 2: 30 g Universal 0N + 10 g blonde finish in ash with 40 ml color treatment activator-liquid
Steps: Pre-lighten with Formula 1 until hair reaches the palest yellow stage, here 50 minutes. Then refine the residual warmth with Formula 2 to create a subtle ash shade that looks natural, not artificial. Here, processing is 5 minutes.
