This gold-flecked rich, dark blonde is perfect for adding softness and sunshine to your winter look. The warm hue has a fire lit quality that is flattering and lush. Read on for the profession formulation and application tips. –– Laura Martin

Tips: To achieve a sparkling result that glows with inner light, use the two coordinating formulas provided below. Apply formula 1 in slices, parallel to the hairline, between parting and occipital bone. Keep these sections in front of the apex, focused around the face. Weaving or slicing may be appropriate depending on the desired level of illumination. After highlights are complete, apply formula 2 to remaining hair. Process and rinse separately, removing color residue from base shade before removing foils. Shampoo, condition and style as desired.

Formula: (on natural level 7)

Formula 1: Goldwell Topchic Highlift 11N with 30 Volume

Formula 2: Goldwell Topchic 7B with 20 Volume
