This inspiration for this hue is midday sun. When our star is high in the sky, it gives off a bright white light suffused with subtle warmth. This color is as bright as your favorite platinum but not the least bit icy. It’s golden warmth maximizes reflectiveness, making strands glow with near-blinding brilliance. Click the notes for the professional formula for this sunny shade. –– Laura Martin
