Frances Canola (@frances_hairartist) is in the process of opening Bauhaus Salon in Orange, CA (opening Jan 2, 2017). MODERN found this lovely makeover and asked Canola for the details:

"My client colors her hair once a year so to keep her color low maintenance I decided to create a shadow root blonde. She tends to pull very warm so my goal was to have a more neutral blonde result."

Step 1: Foil highlight, using a babylight technique, using Kenra Ammonia Free lightener with 20 volume developer and Olaplex.

Step 2: While processing, paint the prelightened ends with the same lightener with 9 volume developer and Olaplex. 

Step 3: Process for 40 minutes. Rinse.

Step 4: Create a root shadow with Kenra 6A demi perm. Process for 5 minutes.

Step 5: Melt into 10SM from mid shaft to ends. Process for an addition one minute to give her a silvery blonde effect.
