Winter just got a little sweeter with this cotton candy bob from Amy Hayes (@amyj.hayes), a balayage specialist at Haus of Heir in Davenport, Iowa!

Pricing: “This was my model for graduation from the Wella Professionals Master Color Expert Program so she was not charged, but had this been a service in the salon it would be upwards of $250,” notes Amy.

FORMULA STEPS

1. Prelighten the regrowth area with Formula A. Process for 25 minutes or until she reaches a pale yellow tone, checking every 5 to 7 minutes. 

 

2. Rinse, shampoo and apply Wella Service Post Color Treatment

 

3. Then, apply Formula B from the roots to the midlengths to neutralize any yellow tones. Process for 15 minutes.

 

4. Rinse and towel-dry, then apply Formula B a second time from the roots to the midlengths. Process for 10 minutes. “The second application will give more color deposit,” shares Amy.

 

 

5. Next, melt Formula C into the base and blend where it meets Formula B. Then, pull the pink all the way through to the ends. Process for 5 minutes or until the desired shade of pink is achieved. 

 

6. Rinse, then apply Service Post Color Treatment.
