A warm brunette base with faded highlights is revitalized with a kiss of golden-blonde. Looking to give her client Ann, a new mom of three, a fresh, new look, Tara Modelowitz from Sola Salon Studios in Pleasanton, CA chose a golden beige tone for her highlights to really play off her client’s fair complexion with an olive undertone. “I wanted her to feel sexy so that lead me to take her shorter with blunt ends, which is a really hot, of-the-moment trend,” notes Tara. Here’s the “recipe” for her stunning color formula.

2. Next, touch up her base using Formula B, melting the color through to the midlengths.

3. Paint the hair left out of the foil with Formula C.

4. Rinse and towel-dry the hair. Then apply Formula D to the base, feathering the color out to Formula E from midlengths to ends. Allow the color to process for about 5 minutes.
