From Brunette To Pastel Pink Balayage Testimonial

Naturally, I’m a dark brunette. For the past year I’ve been transforming into a blonde by way of ombré and balayage at Arsova Salon. Anita identified the daring self I am and asked if I wanted to try the newest Wella Professionals Instamatic by Color Touch. She described it as a pink natural tone to my blonde locks. Since it works best on color treated blonde hair I was an easy trial.

The Process Brunette to Pastel Pink Balayage

At first I was concerned about the degree of pink with my new corporate job starting in just weeks. The result was stunning. We called it ‘Strawberry Dreamsicle.’ This new trend blends a diffused color finish on your hair like a light blush. It complements the balayage color from root to tip leaving the brightest for the tips just as the blonde balayage.

The color is applied on dry hair as a glaze and adapts to the color brightest in lightest spots and faint on darker areas. This whimsical pink looks like a natural pink, if pink were to exist naturally on the color wheel of hair.

The process only takes five to twenty minutes to achieve the desired look depending on the intensity. It is demi-permanent that fades stunningly into your hair. The color pigments gradually diffuse into each piece of hair for a beautiful look.

Natural Base: Level 6-7, 3″ grown out from root to existing color.
Existing color: Level 8-9 patchy Gold
Base Color: 60g Blondor Powder Lightener + 120g 30 Volume + 1/4 oz Olaplex No. 1

Using this formula Jordan painted just the 3″ of the new growth, isolating each section with a mini foil. After the new growth was applied, Jordan mixed up a separate formula for Mid-lengths to ends.

Mid- Lengths: 80g Blondor Powder Lightener + 160g 20 Volume + 1/4 oz Olaplex No. 1

Jordan let both of these formulas processes until reached a pale yellow level 10, shampooed and treated with Olaplex No 2 for 20min.

Blow-dry hair 100% dry.

To create a shadow root and dimension, Jordan used a slightly darker formula on her base and with that same formula, he did a fine weave so there were no harsh lines.

Base & Lowlight Formula(Wella Color Touch): 30g 8/71 + 30g 8/81 + 60g 6 Volume

Let this process for 20 min, rinse and glaze.

Glaze( Wella Color Touch ): 60g /86 + 120g 6vol

Let the glaze sit on until all yellow is removed from the hair( about 10 min in my case ). Rinse hair.
