Seamless Blonde + Hidden Dimension

Need to create a multi-tonal blonde but don’t have a ton of time? No problem. This quick sectioning technique from Kenra Professional makes it easy. 

 

Want a few more color tips? Here are three things from Laken Rose, Cassie Siskovic and David Lopez—all of whom will be joining the COLOR, Cut & Style Stage this year in Austin, Texas! And did we mention tickets are now on sale? Buy yours today!

 

 

 

1. Intrigued by balayage, but still loyal to your foils? Laken has the answer—she calls it Structured Painting. As you go, simply wrap select sections in foil and cover your balayaged sections with clear film. The result is super natural color in record time.

 

2. According to Cassie, babylights don’t have to take forever. Try this: Pivoting off of a crown section, she advises, alternate micro-weaves with slices as you lighten. This approach to babylights not only speeds up the application, it also provides maximum lightening impact with minimal foils.

 

3. When unwanted warm tones are still visible, David suggests, grabbing Kenra Rapid Toner SV/Silver Violet and apply it to neutralize the remaining warmth. Those tones will be gone in five minutes. Then proceed with the toner you’ve selected to achieve your final cool result.
