This shade is a blend of three summer trends: silver, pastel, and rose gold. The result is a soft pink that’s both warm and dusky. This shade looks great with pale skin or a tan. The balance of warm and cool tones works on almost everyone. Click the style notes for the professional formulation. –– Laura Martin

Application: For the result shown here, which has a slightly deeper root and some variation in level throughout, apply the formula below over a full head highlight or slightly gown out double process. Roots should be no darker than a level 7 and at least 60% of the hair should be a level 9 or 10.
