Summer Blonde: Highlights + Lowlights

Start mixing your lightener, everyone. It’s blonding season. This perfectly sun-kissed blonde from Joico Celebrity Colorist Denis De Souza focuses the major blonding at the front hairline and weaves lowlights in the back. “What’s better than a bright, brilliant blonde that looks as if it were the result of hours lounging and playing along the California coast? Nothing!” Denis says. Get the steps!

    Break the base with Formula A on the regrowth for 10 minutes to blur the line of demarcation and create a soft, light canvas. Rinse, then blow-dry. Starting at the front hairline, take a vertical weave parting and apply Formula B.

    Lay foils in a bricklay pattern. Remember to include the hairline and the hair over the ear. To prevent bleeding, triple-fold foils lengthwise and fold over the top of the foil-holding weave section.
