Formula How-To: Sundrenched by Matrix

Victoria Wurdinger | October 28, 2015 | 1:43 PM

The inspiration for this color comes from, beachy, earthy tones. Naturally sun-kissed blonde is achieved by weaving in multiple shades of color. Contrast is necessary for the lighter pieces to appear lustrous. Lowlights are a crucial part of the process to create depth and movement. By weaving randomly, you can achieve warm, natural-looking tones.

 

FORMULAS & APPLICATION:

 

Natural level 6

 

Formula 1: 1 scoop of Light Master Lightener with 1 oz 20-volume Matrix Cream Developer

 

Formula 2: ½ oz SoColor UL-IA with 1 oz 40-volume Matrix Cream Developer

 

Formula 3: 1 oz Imprints 6N-F + ½ oz Imprints 6G-F + ½ oz Imprints 6V-F with 2 oz 10-volume Matrix Cream Developer

 

Formula 4: ½ oz Imprints G-SS + ½ oz Imprints V-SS with 1 oz 5-volume Logics Generator.

 

1. Begin by weaving Formulas 2 and 3 through the back of the head to add darker shades of blonde. To gradually build lighter shades toward the hairline, shift to alternating Formulas 1 and 2 as you move up and forward. When foiling is completed, process 50 minutes. Then rinse thoroughly, cleanse and towel dry.

 

2. Apply Formula 4 as an all-over gloss. Process up to 20 minutes. Then rinse thoroughly, cleanse and condition.
