Blonde on Blonde




Grace came in and wanted blonder hair so we decided to do a blonde on blonde look to achieve a softer look that will grow out less harsh then an all over platinum tone. She sat in my chair and had medium golden blonde chunky highlights that were very pretty but she was in search of something a little bit brighter. Her natural color is level 5 bordering on level 4 ash brown. She has youth and beauty on her side, so NO, was not anywhere in my vocabulary for taking her lighter. We decided to go in with a soft approach to her hair, making some pops of bright blonde around the face, and keeping it a little softer and more natural through out. I gave her the platinum blonde in her highlights and used a soft ash base bump to lift her natural level about 2 shades lighter and expose that NRP of gold. The combination of the platinum blonde highlights with the single process base lift gave her a beautiful blonde on blonde look. We kept her natural color underneath to give her even more dimension and texture. After we got done we curled her hair with a 1 ¼” barrel hot iron all curling in the same direction and brushed it out with a soft boar bristle brush. We finished with my new “go to” favorite product, by KevinMurphy, called Shimmer Shine and viola! Perfect beautiful blonde on blonde hair that is healthy, easy to manage and has tons of shine!
