This formula is a happy medium between two of my favorite color trends: rose gold and gray violet. Rose gold is slightly warm, and adding it to an ultra-cool shade softens and brightens. This color is unusual in an understated way. The subtle pink tone makes skin glow while the balanced beige that makes up the hies primary tone provides a classy neutral backdrop. Click the notes for a glaze formula and an optional accent color. –– Laura Martin 

Application: Apply the formula below to previously lightened level 9-10 hair, working quickly to spread from roots to ends. If desired, apply accent shade to some area, happy on top of base color and processing together.

Formulas: (on pre-lightened levels 9 or 10)

Glaze: Goldwell Topchic (1 part 6VV + 10 parts 10V + 10 parts 10P) mixed with equal parts 20 Volume and Water

Accent: Goldwell Topchic 10 parts 10P + 1 part VV Mix with 10 Volume
