THE VISION: “For ‘Gold Star,’ we were inspired by blondes you might see on celebrities,” the team says. “We wanted to translate that into color upgrade for the salon.”


Natural Level 6

Formula 1: 1 scoop Paul Mitchell SynchroLift Ultra-Quick Blue Powder Lightener with 2 oz. 20-volume Paul Mitchell Cream Developer

Formula 2: Paul Mitchell PM SHINES, 1 oz. 9NG Sandstone + 1 oz. 9NB Sandy Beach with 2 oz. of Processing Liquid

STEP 1: Begin by taking slices around the top perimeter of the head. Slice the hair in a spoke-like manner, pivoting around one central point of the head. The central point should be based on the cut, the natural part and the hair’s natural texture. Apply Formula 1 to the slices in foils, and process until you reach Level 9.

STEP 2: Rinse hair thoroughly, shampoo with Color Protect Daily Shampoo and towel dry.

STEP 3: Apply Formula 2 from scalp to ends, and process 20 minutes. Then rinse thoroughly, shampoo with Color Protect Post ColoR Shampoo and condition with Color Protect Daily Conditioner or ColoR Protect Reconstructive Treatment.
