Suzanne Nguyen (@Hairbysuzanne_) of Vogue Salon and Lounge, San Jose, California, is a color specialist and loves to do all types of color. "I range from natural tones, creative metallic tones, and unicorn colors. Sometimes I mix them together."
For this client Nguyen had a challenge. "I had a couple of different services done from other salons one of them included a base lift which caused a slight 5 inches of banding. She wanted something closer to her natural but not a solid dark brown color. For this correction I had to blur out various bands that she had. Then go back and added depth and dimension without compromising the hair."
Here Nguyen shares the details for this makeover:
Products:
Wella Blondor
Formula 1: Wella Color Touch 5/75 with 6 volume
Formula 2: Wella Color Touch 6/7 with 6/71 equal parts with 6 volume
Formula 3: Wella Color Touch 4/0 with 6 volume
Step 1: Blend Wella Blondor 25 vol in the back and 30 vol for the front, both with Olaplex added. Apply in 1/2 inch subsections, painting every other section.
Step 2: Used formula 1 and apply to the hair left out as a lowlight.
Step 3: Process for 35 minutes then Applied Olaplex #2 for 10 minutes
Step 4: Tone with formula 2 and applied formula 3 to the root for softer blend from the roots to ends. Process for 20 minutes.
