TRANSFORMATION: Summer to Winter Blonde
Allie Villa (@allievilla) of Mimi's Salon (@mimissalon), Belmar NJ, says "My client Marta always likes to go very blonde during the summer so we keep her very close to platinum usually, but for the fall she wanted a rooted, warm blonde look. Since she was already a level 10 so I had the perfect canvas to paint highs and lows."
Formula A: Wella Illumina 7/31 10 volume
Formula B: Pravana Pure Enlightenment, medium developer, Olaplex #1
Formula C: Pravana/Guy Tang Express Tone Beige
STEP BY STEP:
STEP 1: Apply formula A as a touch up on all new regrowth, feathering down about an extra inch and a half to start to fill the blonde.
STEP 2: Section the hair into 4 quadrants. Starting at the nape and working toward the top of the head, take diagonal sections and alternate between pulling formula A to the ends and painting deep V's with formula B. Make sure that the middle of each V is saturated with formula A.
STEP 3: Move to the sides taking diagonal back sections, repeating the same pattern all the way to the top of the head.
STEP 4: Wrap the hair in a balayage wrap for 35 minutes.
STEP 5: At the sink shampoo the hair and glaze with Formula C for 5 minutes at the bowl. Rinse and apply Olaplex #2.
