For most blondes, gold is a dirty word associated with cheap, fried strands. But gold doesn’t have to mean glaring yellow. This gorgeous metallic peachy hue has all the glamour and glister of a precious metal. It’s dimensional, glossy, and sunny. Click the style notes for application tips and the professional formulation. –– Laura Martin
Application: Apply formula 1 and 2 in thin foiled slices, about 1” apart over the top surface of the head. Beginning in nape, take thick sections and paint with formula 3, saturating throughly on both sides, blending into roots with a dry brushing technique. Continue over the entire head, working between foils. Process until formula 1 reaches a pale creamy yellow, then shampoo and condition. Apply formula 4 and process 5-15 minutes.
