Believe it or not, this seamless, apricot vanilla balayage was recently a faded, rooty red. But with a little help from  Ash Fortis of G Patton Salon in Norfolk, VA, her client is now rocking this apricot blonde blend! This was not an easy transformation, Ash says. “But the right tools, technique, patience and formulas knocked this out of the park!” This is how Ash achieved color melt perfection.

FORMULA STEPS

1. Apply Formula A to roots.

2. Balayage small sections with Formula B, using foils for extra lift and making sure to saturate the ends.

3. Process for 40 minutes, until lifted as light as they can go while remaining healthy.

4. At the bowl, apply Formula C on towel-dried hair 4 inches from the root, using a color brush to blend two to three inches into the midshaft, depending on the desired look. Process for 15 minutes.

5. Continue to the ends using Formula D and process for 5 minutes.

6. Rinse, condition and style.
