Marie Antoinette, is that you? From the bright blue Salvatore Ferragamo ensemble to the heavy-handed pink blush, “Riverdale” star Lili Reinhart perfectly embodied the former French queen at the 2019 Met Gala. But of course, we’re dying to know how Redken Brand Ambassador Matt Rez (@colorbymattrez) achieved a balanced blend of baby blonde haircolor and dimensional lowlights. 

 

“Lili loves a cooler blonde, so we always go for neutral, cool tones when rooting and glossing her hair,” shares Matt. “To get her ready for the red carpet, we added in lowlights to create a really nice neutral tone with depth and then glossed all over.”

COLOR FORMULAS

  • Formula A (lowlights):

    Redken Shades EQ ½ oz. 08N + ½ oz. 08GN + ½ oz. 07GB + ¼ oz. 09NB + 1¾ oz. Shades EQ Processing Solution

  • Formula B (Zone 1 root glaze):

    Redken Shades EQ ½ oz. 08N + ½ oz. 09NA + 1 oz. Shades EQ Processing Solution

FORMULA STEPS

1. Start by adding in lowlights with Formula A to add depth while achieving a neutral tone throughout. Let process.

 

2. Rinse, then tone by applying Formula B to the roots and Formula C to the midlengths and ends. “Glossing with Redken Shades EQ is always my first choice for my actress clients when they’re in-between projects—or just for anyone who wants frequent changes—because it’s easily reversible, the color fades on tone and it keeps the hair super healthy,” says Matt.

 

3. Let process, then rinse again and wash with Redken Color Extend Color-Depositing Blondage Shampoo and Conditioner.

 

4. Then, apply Redken One United All-In-One Multi-Benefit Treatment before styling for extra shine and softness.
