How-To: Free-Form Texture and Sun-Kissed Blonde

This look, from Anthony Cristiano’s Intrinsic Collection, was created with an artfully-designed, edgy crop that brings a reinterpretation to model Natalie’s existing soft waves. Subtil Highlights emphasize her flaxen shade for an overall refreshed look.

HOW-TO STEPS

    1

    Start by sectioning at the round of the head in a rectangular shape.

    Cut in the base line by cutting in a square shape.

    3

    Section diagonally at the occipital bone and begin your graduation, working in a pivotal manner. Then cross-check to taper to the neck area.

    4

    Take horizontal sections and bring everything down to the stable guideline, using the jawline as a reference point.

    Lift the hair above 90 degrees and create round layers—it is important to overdirect the sides back in order to maintain a consistent frontal length.

    Working through the sides toward the front, remove excess weight. Continue to remove weight, and work upward horizontally toward the crown.

    8

    Strengthen the shape by rounding the base, using the jaw and lip line as a visual guide. Release the crown section.

    After blow-drying, refine the outer baseline.

    Start by clipping away a halo section that comes to a “V” at the crown.

    Mix Subtil Lightener to a creamy consistency. Then, starting by teasing a diagonal section at the temple, just in front of the ear and balayage with SUBTIL Powder Lightener and 40-Volume Oxydant in a light application to create a very natural look around the hairline.

    Continue to the top of the head, working with horizontal sections. Place a more delicate application at the crown and a more concentrated amount of color toward the face.

    Cover each section with cellophane to insulate the color. This will keep the lightener from drying out and also aids in processing.

    A client’s body heat will naturally help process the color, so place additional layers of cellophane over the top to help insulate and retain heat. Process for 60 minutes at room temperature.
