The light reflected to us from the surface of the moon has a silvery quality that gives ordinary objects a touch of mystery. Giving your strands a permanent moonlit glow is a great way to capture this mystique with a personalized twist on classic platinum. This shade gets its lustrous shimmer from a barely-there cool violet. Read on for the professional formulation and application tips. –– Laura Martin
Tips: Use a virgin application for first time color or whenever roots are over 3/4″. Apply lightener 1/2″ off the scalp, in thin, horizontal sections, separating with thin strips of cotton placed along the root. Allow hair to lighten to a bright yellow, pull lightening through roots and continue to process until an even pale yellow is achieved. Shampoo, condition, towel try, and tone for 5-10 minutes.
