A cool, ashy blonde melts into buttery tones with pearly accents in this rooted blonde formula. Customized color was achieved by over-directing color placement in front of the face, using L'Anza color.

 

FORMULA & APPLICATION

Natural level: 7

 

Formula 1: 30 g L’Anza Cream Decolorizer with 30 g 20-volume Healing Color Developer

Formula 2: 30 g 100 + 1 g G Mix + 31 g Translucent Color Catalyst with 62 g Demi Healing Color Developer

 

1. Divide hair in half by parting from center front to center back. Starting on the right, gather fine sections into a ponytail at the base of the center-front fringe area. For optimal distribution, take small sections to keep hair smooth. Repeat on the left side until you have two side-by-side ponytails in the center front fringe. Next, sub-section each ponytail, using fine partings.

2. Apply Formula 1 from the base of the ponytails to the ends, slightly blurring it at the top of each subsection. Process up to 50 minutes or until you reach the desired level of lift. Rinse, shampoo, condition and blowdry.

3. Glaze the ponytails with Formula 2. Process 20 minutes. Rinse, shampoo and condition.
