CLOCKWISE FROM TOP: COURTESY OF LAKMÉ; COURTESY OF KENRA PROFESSIONAL; COURTESY OF MOROCCANOIL; COURTESY OF SURFACE HAIR Gold Medal Ribbon Looking for ways to enhance your client's hair color with an easy and quick natural-looking blonde effect? Wendy Bond, ★ Lakmé national director of education, recommends ribbon lightening as an effective way to evoke depth and movement by visually placing blonde through hair for maximum impact. "Fewer foils and less work make greater impact on clients' hair color by giving them the most up-to-date looks in little time," says Bond. "Ribbon lightening is perfect for fi ne hair to create visual density and movement, as well as thick hair where traditional highlighting tends to get lost." @lakmeusa BASE COLOR Gloss 20g. 5 /60 + 40g. 6-vol. gloss Long- Lasting Developer RIBBON COLOR 15g. k.blonde Clay Bleach and 30g. 30-vol. Collage Hydrox Developer + 10g. i.Plex OVERLAY COLOR Gloss 30g. ¹/8 + 60g. 6-vol. gloss Long-Lasting Developer 1 Apply base color to new growth. 2 Visually plan for ribbon lightening areas. Choose placement based on longer areas of haircut; this will accentuate the overall health and movement of hair. Avoid short fi ne areas such as the hairline. 3 Visually selected ribbons should be one to two fi ngers thick. Start bleach application at ends of ribbon, saturating ends thoroughly with Clay Bleach, feathering bleach toward the top to naturally blend hair color, creating focus on the light ends. 4 Process 30 minutes. Shampoo with Deep Care Shampoo and Conditioner. Towel-dry. 5 Apply overlay color. Process for 10 minutes. 6 Rinse. Towel-dry hair. Apply i.Plex Step 2. Baby Blonde "We wanted something that didn't look silver but had very little warmth to it at the same time," says ★ Moroccanoil global ambassador Briana Cisneros of the model's color. "We ended up with a very balanced blonde that was more of a pearly tone." Glean more about her technique for creating this gorgeous color. @moroccanoil 1 Prep hair with ChromaTech Prime prior to coloring. 2 Add babylights and balayage throughout entire head, painting each section in a specifi c pattern in order to achieve an organic-looking effect. Separate hair into very fi ne sections, encapsulated in foils, to help even out the blonde and get the maximum amount of lift with minimal damage. 3 After shampooing hair, balayage around the front hairline to lend a seamless look. This helps give the effect that the hair is growing out with that perfect baby blonde shade. This technique is best done on levels eight and higher. 4 After shampooing again, tone roots through ends with a level 10 silver/violet toner that does not life the natural base. 5 Complete service with ChromaTech Post to fortify hair. Golden Girl Elevate her blonde hue with this step-by-step courtesy of ★ Kenra Professional stylist Wesley Boyce. This golden shade of blonde adds warmth to skin tones and will be the envy of everyone as it sparkles in the sunshine. @kenraprofessional 1 Mix Color Simply Blonde Crème Lightener at a 1:2 ratio with 20-vol. developer. 2 Separate hair into four quadrants. 3 Work from the back to the front in horizontal subsections, applying to previously colored hair needing additional lift. Separate into foils if necessary. 4 Go back and apply to regrowth in ½-inch` horizontal subsections and process until desired lift is achieved. Apricot Blonde "Apricot blondes are the new 'it' blonde for summer 2018!" says Sara Gallagher, color director for Surface Hair.
