MARGARET JOHNNY & AHN Affi nage celebrated its 20 th anniversary in London. newsfeed Recently I've received many questions for my weekly "Fast Tip Friday" broadcast on how to transition blonde clients from summer into fall. Blonde hair often becomes one dimensional and overly light by the end of summer, so low-lights are my go-to option. COLOR CHOICES When it comes to low- lighting blondes, I like to add warmer tones, but it's important to select those tones carefully. Red is too warm for a blonde low- light—instead, opt for modern shades like mocha, rose-violet or gold-violet. APPLICATION My number-one piece of advice when low-lighting is to keep the low-lights away from the face. Blondes tend to freak out if the hair around their face becomes dark, so keep your placement at least 2 inches away from the hairline, and allow the light color to remain around the face. Place low-lights vertically so no matter how she parts her hair, you'll see balanced tone throughout the head. Place darker color minimally—partial or accent low-lights are generally suffi cient to achieve the desired results. BASE-SHADING Base-shading creates depth around the hairline and it's another way to change the focal point on a too-light blonde. Remember, the rules of color still apply. If you're starting with a level 10, you'll have to fi ll the hair fi rst with a warm, underlying pigment. Then, because the color will be applied on the heat zone, you'll need a cool toner to counteract the warmth. Apply the color with a side brush technique at the new growth, and then apply a clear formula to blur the line between the application and the existing color for a seamless transition. Always perform base- shading with a demi- permanent formula like Matrix Color Sync since you're depositing, not lifting. The ceramide technology in Color Sync provides color longevity and helps close the cuticle, which is a plus for porous hair.
