Try This Blonde “Winter Quartz” Technique

Blonde Hair color before


“My client was a natural, Level 7 brunette — she’d never colored her hair before. But she decided she wanted to be a “dirty blonde.”


“Fortunately, because I was working with all virgin hair, I didn’t have the challenge of color correction. She lifted beautifully! I started with a lower developer in the back, and used a higher developer as I got to the sides and the top…which helped with an even lift all around.”

Blonde hair color after


“Upkeep on this look is fairly minimal. I won’t need to see my client for another 3 – 4 months.”


“I think what makes this shade so special is that it’s the PERFECT beige. Not too ashy…not too warm. My client is still bright, shiny, and reflective.”


“I encouraged my client to use Color Balance Purple Shampoo and Blonde Life Brightening Conditioner once a week. After she’s out of the shower, it’s all about Luster Lock Multi-Protector Daily Shine & Protect Spray, which I love, because it helps detangle, gives longevity to the color, and is both a heat and UV protectant. After that, I have her apply Blonde Life Brilliant Glow Brightening Oil — it works on damp or dry hair — which adds extra hydration along with shine, and helps eliminate any unwanted frizz.
