Toning is the key to creating a beautiful finished haircolor, but a lot of colorists overlook the process. We caught up with Matrix Artistic Director Lenny Strand who believes in turning toning services into moneymaking techniques. His advice is to use more than one formula and to never apply the gloss at the shampoo bowl. Here are his formulas and steps for this lovely metallic lilac.
