We get asked a lot “how can I get my hair light” so we decided to share with you a recent color and a little history on what we did!
About 12 months prior to the above photo, Sandra was almost black & it looked good but with her Instagram and Pinterest obsession she wanted to be light! So we did several color removing techniques and maintained the color as best we could whilst not being too agreesive and maintaining the structure of the hair.
When she came in, we bleached the ends twice for about 40 min each time to remove the gold. We then went through and lightened the roots to match. Going over the ends a third time, as this is the area with underlying gold pigment from the left over black. We then toned the entire head with a silver ash toner to counter balance the gold tones and here you go.
The hair only ever needed a trim, the strength & condition of the hair is still great and we have a beautiful soft blonde. It took 4 hours on the last sitting, that too after several lightening colors over the last 6 months. Slow and steady wins the race and the hair looks great!
