Whether you look at the sci-fi escapism of Jeremy Scott’s fall /winter runway show or the apocalyptic inspiration of Maison Margiela, designers have been expressing a cosmic trend, interpreted here by Wella.


Natural level 8

Formula 1: Blondor Soft Blonde Cream with 6% developer and Wellaplex No. 1

Formula 2: Wellaplex No. 2

Formula 3: 2 g Color Fresh Create New Blue + Tomorrow 15 g Clear 15

Formula 4: 3 g Super Petrol 3g + 15 g Tomorrow Clear

Formula 5: 2 g High Magenta + 20 g Tomorrow Clear

Formula 6: 5 g Pure Violet + 20 g Tomorrow Clear


  1. Apply Formula 1 to mid-lengths and ends. The goal is to lighten the hair to a very pale blonde. Apply Formula 1 to the new growth at the appropriate point for it to lighten to the same level simultaneously. Process about 45 minutes.
  2. Rinse thoroughly, then apply Formula 2 and process 10 minutes. Shampoo and condition.
  3. Starting with a horizontal section in the nape, apply Formulas 3, 4, 5 and 6 randomly, in large squares. Do not blend the colors together. Always leave spaces of blonde between these formulas. As you work, cover with foil, then take the next horizontal section. Repeat until you reach the top. Process 15 minutes.
