TRANSFORMATION: High Contrast Blonde
Marie Negron (@glamhairbymarie), owner of Flawless Beauty Salon, Cleveland, Ohio, loves "being a colorist and making my clients beautiful and happy."
She had that opportunity with client Ashley who "came back after 6 months to re-touch her old red/gold ombre color, but this time she wanted to get a high contrast blonde." Megron delivered and shares the how to:
Starting level: 3 inches of level 4, mid-section faded red, ends brassy blonde.
Step 1: Apply Pravana color extractor to prep the hair. Wash and dry.
Step 2: Mixed Redken Flash Lift lightener with 40 volume and Olaplex. Starting from the nape, take 1 inch vertical sections and apply the lightener leaving out the ends of the hair.
Step 3: Take a thin slice every second section and apply an accent color: Pravana Chroma Silk 8Bv & 8a with 10 volume to create some dimension.
Step 4. Process approximately 1 hour.
Step 5: Rinse and tone with Redken Shade EQ 1 oz 09V+ 1oz 09N & ½ oz 09b. Process for 15 minutes.
Step 6: Rinse and apply Olaplex # 2 for 20 minutes. Shampoo, condition and style.
