Is it blonde? Or is it brunette? Those are the questions your on-trend clients want everyone to be asking them—because in 2017, that barely-there-but-oh-so-beautiful bronde shade is going to be so in. So, when Ivan Hernandez’s (@justhairobsession) client came in looking for a color refresh and gave him free range with his hair-painting skills, he went to work on this gorgeous ashy bronde. And, needless to say, Instagram loved it. Here’s how he did it.

HOW-TO STEPS

  • 1

     Starting around the face, backcomb balayage strands into a foil using Formula A.

  • 2

    Working in 1-inch sections from left to right, tease every section and paint in a V-shape, always feathering your brush upward. Be sure to leave out 1½ inches at the top of the head in order to create your contrast.

    3

     Let the hair process for 30 minutes with no added heat.

    Next, rinse and tone using Formula B. Ivan first sectioned out the hairline and toned the remaining strands for 5 minutes. Then he applied the toner all over, letting it process for 5 more minutes.

     Style as desired. Ivan used a 1 ½-inch Marcel curling iron and Moroccanoil® finishing spray to complete his look.
