Ashy blondes and brunettes are totally having a moment and it’s easy to see why. It’s a low-maintenance tone that fades beautifully and doubles as a transition shade for clients who may want to take their locks lighter or darker. The latest take on this rising trend is courtesy of Aleck Zajac (@ahleckk), a stylist at Dolce Salon & Spa in Millburn, N.J. Find out how she created this rooty, ash-toned platinum blonde below!

FORMULA STEPS

Before

 

1. Paint babylights around the whole head with Formula A, but avoid overlapping with previously prelightened hair.

 

 

2. For the remaining hair that is not in foils, tone the orange sections only by applying Formula B.

 

3. Take what’s left over of Formula A and paint the yellow sections to remove any unwanted tones. Process until she reaches Level 10.

 

4. At the bowl, pre-tone with Pulp Riot Barcelona. Let it sit for a few minutes before rinsing.

 

5. On wet hair, apply Formula C to the roots only. Process for 15 minutes, then rinse.

 

6. Then, apply Formula D all over and process for 5 minutes. Wash her hair with KEVIN.MURPHY REPAIR-ME.WASH and KEVIN.MURPHY REPAIR-ME.RINSE.

 

7. For the style, prep hair with KEVIN.MURPHY LEAVE-IN.REPAIR and KEVIN.MURPHY SHIMMER.ME BLONDE. Blow-dry, style as desired, then finish the style with KEVIN.MURPHY BEDROOM.HAIR.
