How To Navigate The Color Trend With Formulation Tips For Bright Blondes

Beige blonde is EVERYWHERE, but formulating the perfect shade customized to every client can be tricky. Luckily, we have these tips for formulating the perfect base with undertones and gorgeous reflects using Redken Shades EQ Bonder Inside Level 10 toners. Let’s get started!

 

1. Understand The Color Request

When formulating for a specific color trend, it’s important to balance the tone perfectly. One shade too ashy or warm can make your client’s hair look muddy. When you hear requests for a beige blonde, think of neutral, buttery tones with a lot of dimension.

 

2. Choose The Right Shade

To choose a toner, first decide the overall shade of blonde your client wants (in this case, beige). Then, choose a complementary reflect color—blue, violet, golden, whatever your client is looking for. 

 

We’ve taken out some of the guesswork and picked a couple shades as inspo for stand-alone colors, correctors or toners for any client’s perfect shade of beige blonde.

Pro Tip: Reflect colors will determine how bright or bold blondes will pop. Keep this in mind when mixing formulas to avoid toning too light and covering up dimensions created.

3. Decide Level 9 VS. Level 10

Just think of a banana! No, really. Although beige blondes need to stick to a specific tonal range, there’s a huge opportunity to create custom colors when using level 9 and 10 toners. 

 

Level 9: When working with yellow tones (like a banana) always reach for a Level 9 shade. Level 9s are able to neutralize yellow tones while enhancing color on-level for a natural-looking result. 

 

Level 10: If you’re working with pale yellow tones (like the inside of a banana peel) choose Level 10 shades. Tones at this level deposit enough pigment to neutralize brassy tones while keeping blondes bright. Level 10 also ensures that tones will never be darker than expected—eliminating the worry of overdeveloping or color clinging on to super light pieces. 

 

Get The Look: Formula Inspo

This may become a trend that won’t go out of style! The neutral tones hold depth while contrasting the light pops in an effortless way. Check out the inspo pics below for formula breakdowns to try out on your next client.
