Celebrity stylist and owner of Marie’s Hair Studio, Marie Ferro, is no stranger to perfectly imperfect, sun-kissed blondes. Tending to the tresses of her Malibu Colony clients, Marie has had plenty of practice perfecting her beautiful blonding techniques. Her newest creation is a multidimensional, golden blonde she crafted for the latest edition of The Malibu Times. Marie blended various shades using multiple foiling techniques to create flawless movement in the hair. “Not being able the see where the color stops and starts creates interest throughout the hair,” she notes.

FORMULA STEPS

Sectioning

Foil Technique
Foil 1:
Saturate the ends with Formula B, using a dry brush to diffuse the formula into the midshaft.

 

Foil 2: Weave in Formula C from roots to midshaft, diffusing Formula A throughout the ends of the hair.

 

Foil 3: Weave ½ of the hair with Formula A and the other ½ with Formula C.

 

Foil 4: In very fine sections, weave in Formula D from roots to midshaft. Diffuse in Formula C from midshaft to ends.
