TRANSFORMATION: Cool Sombre
"My client came in with about 4 inches of regrowth and undesired brass/orange tones from previous permanent color," says Marissa Madsen (@hairbymarissasue) a master stylist and blonde specialist at Habit Salon (@habitsalon), Gilbert, Arizona. "I wanted to keep her grow out easy and take her to a cooler tonality all over, as I felt it would be better with her skin tone."
Here she shares the HOW TO in her own words:
"My process was a full highlight of very fine babylights with Goldwell Oxycur 30 volume with Olaplex. I went in-between foils with Goldwell Colorance. I chose to use a semi-permanent color so that her color would fade out nicely with her natural color. It also helped tone out her brassy mid shaft. I then balayaged her ends left out of foils with Oxycur 20 volume and Olaplex. After processing, I applied Olaplex number two and processed for 5 minutes. I then smudged her babylights about two inches with 7n Colorance at the shampoo bowl after I towel-dried. I chose to only smudge the front areas about and inch so that she was brighter around her face. I left on for about 7 minutes. This helped soften the highlights everywhere. I finished by pulling through Colorance 10p through her ends to really give them a brighter/white tone."
Adds Madsen, "I strive to keep my clients bright and damage-free. I believe every client has a haircolor just right for her (or him) and my passion is to create it!"
