Blue Sky Pixie/Rooted Blonde

  • Formula A (prelighten):

    Wella Professionals BLONDOR Oil Mixed Cream Lightener + 20-volume developer

  • Formula B (toner crown):

    INSTAMATIC Ocean Storm + Color Touch 13-volume (4%) developer 

  • Formula C (toner base):

An icy blonde gets a modern update when an ocean blue palette is placed throughout the crown and faded into the base. The minds behind this wintry gem? Joseph and Tonya Cuozzo, Master Color Experts with Wella Professionals and Owners of  “Cuozzo Studio for Hair” in Madison, N.J. and Oranjestad, Aruba. While in Aruba, Joseph was inspired while walking along Rogers Beach.”It was this amazing contrast of colors and textures. I had to find someone to do a salon-friendly look followed by an avant-garde version and then do a mood board,” notes Joseph. When his model allowed him permission to do whatever, Joseph was able to let loose and utilize the amazing colors of the Aruban oceanfront into a very modern, trendy color. And what better way to show off a short pixie then with this stunning color melt. Here’s how he did it.
