PREMIERING MONDAY, APRIL 18! Don’t miss this: Level 2 brunette to bold blonde in LESS foils! Click here to watch.


1. Who is the ideal client for this look?

This look is ideal for the client who is not ready or doesn’t want to be all over blonde, but still wants a pop of color. This look is also great for the client with a low-maintenance lifestyle who doesn’t want to be in the salon frequently.


2. What maintenance is required for this look?

For at-home care, Daniel recommends Redken Extreme Bleach Recovery Shampoo and Extreme Bleach Recovery Lamellar Treatment to protect against further damage. He also recommends the Acidic Perfecting Leave-In Treatment For Damaged Hair for heat protection. This look is low-maintenance so Daniel sees this client in the salon every six months, with some clients going up to a year.
