Natalja Paul (@nataljapaul) of Clarissa Nails, Malmö City, Sweden says her slightly gray client was a beige blonde 2 months before, but was tired of her classic look. "She wanted something modern and practical. She was tired of getting highlights every visit."

Here Paul shares the how-to for this fresh look, using all Subrina Professional Color and Olaplex:

Step 1: Foil highlight with powder bleach with 9% and Olaplex, staying off root to leave a natural shadow. 

Step 2: Freehand highlight using ( 7.2 )40g+(5.1)40g+blue mixton(0.2)2g with 3%+ Olaplex.

Step 3: The apply first to the root (10.6)40g+(10.1)30g+(10.2)30g+black color(2.0)2g with 1.9% oxydant with Olaplex (for ten minutes) and then to the rest off the hair for 20 minutes. Rinse.
