18 The Colorist | NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2015 | ➜ BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA ➜ NEW YORK, NEW YORK ➜ CORALVILLE, IOWA ➜ AGOURA HILLS, CA Scarlett Jo Firrell, a colorist at Simone B Salon, is really into creating sun- kissed looks on all hair colors right now using a combination of babylights and balayage techniques. To maintain blonde highlights and keep them from looking brassy, she always recommends that clients use purple- tinted shampoo and conditioner to neutralize and brighten the tone. "I also recommend a conditioning treatment and toner between color visits to maintain the integrity of the hair for healthy-looking hair color," Firrell says. ➜ CHICAGO AND BEVERLY HILLS, CA Master colorist Renee Taglia, who sees clients at both Seasons Salon in Chicago and her private studio in Beverly Hills, CA, says the rose gold color trend and its slightly lighter counterpart, the "ronze"—seen on A-listers like January Jones, Lauren Conrad and Blake Lively—are the perfect hues for fall and winter. "What's great about this pinky-gold hue is that it can translate well on almost any client and can be surprisingly natural- looking," Taglia says. According to Taglia, the key to achieving a true rose gold, which is composed of equal portions of gold, pink and violet, is the precise use of multiple color products. INDUSTRY NEWS WHAT'S ON TREND.

"I love quilting, and I f nd I'm often more courageous with color combinations in my quilts than with hair color," Lockinour says. To get this look, she pre-lightened the hair to a level 10 on the crown and 8 everywhere else. She then foiled the front and crown with custom formulas of Joico Color Intensity semipermanent color. "All of the foils color-melted from soft pink or platinum to the color on the ends," Lockinour says. "When looking to create an allover rose gold color, the best results are achieved by combining a red sable brown permanent color for the cortex layer with a violet-based semi- or demi-permanent gloss for the cuticular layer," Taglia says. "Customizing color for each individual client will dictate the intensity and depth of either the gold, pink and/or violet."
