HOW-TO: Color Balancing For Dimension

Maggie Mulhern | April 13, 2016 | 4:21 PM

Wendy Bond, Artistic Director of Lakme, is one of the most creative colorists and best educators in the industry.

Earlier today MODERN stopped by and held a very successful PERISCOPE with her while she was "playing around" in the Depasquale Salon Systems headquarters in Fair Lawn, NJ. While the 605 live viewers were fascinated with the technique and process, many also requested to see the result.  Well, here it is!  

Make sure to check out the video and see how Bond creates this subtle and tasteful dimension. IT'S WORTH IT! And if you want the formula, see below:
