Marbled Blonde

Enliven your blondes with colors inspired by the northern, leaden skies infused with hints of vibrant spice. Using ILLUMINA and INSTAMATIC color, a pale blonde is upgraded with subtle hints of frosted strawberry and apricot undertones to create a multidimensional shade. Try it out on your next blonde who wants to add a little more depth to her color.

    Prep the hair with EIMI Perfect Me Lightweight Beauty Balm Lotion as a cutting aid. Section as shown.

  • 8

    Working around the perimeter of the head, create soft layers by elevating the hair and cutting at a diagonal finger angle.

  • 9

    Taking small sections on the top using the same angles, blend the top to the sides and back.

  • 10

    Direct the sides forward to create softness around the face.

  • 11

    Prep the hair with EIMI Thermal Image Heat Protection Spray.

  • 12

    Create small braids and twists in the hair, then tap with your flat iron to lock in the bend.

  • 13

    Once the braids and twists have cooled, use EIMI Dry Me all over to create the texture and foundation. Create a knot on top of the head, roll a large section from the back around it and fix with EIMI Stay Styled.
