Went from a dull grown out blonde with lots of dark roots and not much life to it, to a perfect for summer fresh warm sandy blonde 🌊☀️ . . . . . 1️⃣ I foiled her entire head with Redken Flash Lift lighter & 20 Volume, leaving out small pieces in between. 2️⃣ Once all the foils were in, I free hand painted lighter on the left out pieces leaving a good amount of root, while lightly freshening up the ends. Doing this will give you that blonde base color all over, while still keeping some of your roots so it looks natural and even when it grows. 3️⃣ Then I rinsed and applied a bottle of Redken Shades EQ toner 9N mixed with literally a pinch of 9V, and massaged it in damp hair while watching it the entire time. I didn’t leave the toner on for any specific amount of time, I kept an eye on it and rinsed it as I felt it got to the color I wanted. She wanted a “sandy blonde” color, so the 9N is what’s going to give it the light neutral warm blonde tone, and a pinch of V (violet) will ensure the color doesn’t have any brassiness to it while still achieving a “warm” toned blonde. I didn’t have to use multiple toners to achieve this look because the newly lightened hair vs. previously lightened hair would take the toner a little different, which is what would cause the dimension in colors that she wanted. 4️⃣ And of course I couldn’t bleach it and still have it this healthy without Olaplex 🙌🏻
