Ahh…there is nothing we love more than a perfect color correction. But a color correction that ends up in a gorgeous, rooty blonde bob? Hell, yeah! We are obsessed with this look from Carolynn Judd (@styled_by_carolynn), owner of Ave. Salon in Ogden, Utah. Her client came in with about an inch of virgin regrowth, followed by an inch of pink left over from a previous shadow root. Her ends were still light blonde.

 

“This client is always wanting a new, fun color every couple of months,” Carolynn shares. “Her style is very hippie chic.” Well, Carolynn, you nailed it! Something else that’s cool? Carolynn’s been a stylist for 14 years, but has only been on social media for about six months. She’s been noticing her followers—and business—grow ever since!

FORMULA STEPS

1. Start by foil weaving the entire head. Apply two weaved foils of Formula A then one weaved foil of Formula B.

 

2. When all foils are placed, paint Formula A onto any pink bits, making sure to leave the virgin root and blonde ends exposed. Process for 30 minutes, then rinse and towel-dry thoroughly.

 

3. Apply Formula C from the roots to 2½ inches down, keeping about 1 inch away from the front hairline to keep the color bright around the face. Process for 5 to 10 minutes.

 

4. Apply Formula D to the front hairline, ends and any hair not covered by Formula C. To ensure a seamless shadow, comb through the hair with a wide-tooth comb. Carolynn said she always watches the hair tone to ensure she achieves the correct color, which usually takes about 5 to 7 minutes.

 

5. Rinse and apply Olaplex No.2. Finish with KEVIN.MURPHY ANGEL.WASHand BLONDE.ANGEL.
