We began by doing back to back foil slices with Wella Blondor and 30 vol plus Olaplex #1 This processed without heat until she was a level 8. I shampooed and blow-dried her hair to about 60% dry then applied Equal parts Joico Silver Blonde Toner and Joico Color Corrector Violet plus 10 vol Covered with a cap and processed for 20 minutes-- no heat -- and then shampooed.

This was after toning. I blow dried her again and then applied TIGI 5/22 with 10 vol at her roots and lightly combed down. This processed for 10 minutes with no heat. I mixed by eye for the next part using Joico Intensities--light purple, clear and titanium-- to create a smokey purple. I started with clear then added purple to that and then added dots of titanium until I got my desired color. (see mixing bowl in last slide)

I then applied this and feathered it up to the root color I had applied. This processed for an additional 10 minutes. I rinsed really well and applied Olaplex #2 Shampooed using Moroccanoil Extra Volume shampoo and conditioner
