This client had box color that had to be lifted before Edwin (@hairbyedwin), a colorist at Kut Haus Claremont, could create this melting 'made you look' pinky-lilac shade. Claremont used Schwarzkopf Professional color to create this look!


Started at a level 4/5. "I had previously lightened her to lift out her box color. She came in three months later and she wanted to go as light as she could."


  1. Started in the front doing bayalage and micro-light technique, back to back, using 1/2" partings.
  2. Used Blonde Me by Schwarzkopf 30 volume for the bayalage and 20 volume for the microlight. Worked with foil for separation.
  3. She lifted to a level 8/9
  4. Pre-toned using 8-11 in Igora with 10 volume.
  5. Processed for 15 minutes.
  6. Rinsed, towel-dried, and separated into five quadrants: two front sections, the two back sections and a Mohawk section at the top of the head.
  7. Using a bayalage technique, toned her pink with Pearl Essence 9,5-89 with 10 volume.
  8. Processed for 15 minutes and rinsed.
