Killing the Brass With Foils and Proper Toning

Maggie Mulhern | August 10, 2017 | 7:47 AM

Nicole Benson (@hairby_nicole_benson) of Studio B Colourists, Cronulla, Sydney, Australia, says "My client came to me she was always having blonde foils and a tint in between - not from me - and was sick of it going brassy, we decided to ditch the tint as it was throwing way too much warmth."

Here Benson shares her solution:

Step 1: Full head of micro foils (to eliminate and clean out the brass) using powder bleach + 10-20 volume developer (based on placement).

Step 2: Process for 40 minutes. Rinse.

Step 3: Apply root shadow at the basin with Lakme 6+7+Silver. Process for 10 minutes and then apply the mids-ends shade:  9+Pearl+10.22+gloss. Process for an additional 5 minutes. Finish with an Olaplex treatment.
