Rosé all day isn’t just for Sundays. Toni Trauer (@hairdesignbytoni) created this dreamy rose color melt with a streak of platinum and its the perfect mix of soft and bold. Scroll through for pricing, formulas, and application deets.

Who is the ideal candidate for this look?

“The ideal client for this look is your everyday gal who loves lived-in color but wants a funky, sassy twist. This specific client is a CEO and mother of two who wants to turn up the funk in a low-maintenance way,” says Toni. Because this look requires the hair to be lifted to a Level 9, clients with previous color or darker starting levels might not be ideal for this look. 

 

What maintenance is required for this look?

At home, Toni recommends using a color-conserving shampoo and conditioner for longevity and vibrancy. In the salon, a money piece refresh and partial babylight touch-up along with a new color melt will be needed every eight weeks.

FORMULA STEPS

1. Complete a full head of babylights using Formula A in a brick-lay pattern through the back, pivot placement through the side quadrants, and diagonal-back placement behind the money piece.

 

2. Use back-to-back slices with Formula A until desired density is reached for an exaggerated money piece.

 

3. Pre-tone out any yellow using Formula B.

 

4. On dry hair, apply Formula C to the root and melt into Formula D on the ends, leaving the money piece out. Process for 10 mins.

 

5. Apply Formula E to the money piece root and melt into Formula F on the ends and allow to process for an additional 10 mins under heat.

 

6. Rinse, condition and style as desired.
