"This collection features true style, form and colorations for the classic and independent woman," Dove says. To achieve the color seen here, the duo fi rst pre- lifted an elongated triangle section of the hair to level 8, diffusing the lightener application from the scalp through to the ends. Next, they applied the base formula (L'Anza 5AX + 10-volume developer) to the remaining hair. After rinsing, shampooing and conditioning the hair, they took horizontal slices and applied "mosaic" accent shades (L'Anza Vibes Red, Blue, Teal, and a blend of Blue and Teal). "Create your pattern with minimal blend," Simpson says. "Tones will naturally diffuse as they are familiar in level." See the formulas for all the looks at FORMULA A | 1 oz.

SPECIAL EFFECTS Charlize Theron looks undeniably badass in her role as an undercover MI6 agent in the recently released fi lm "Atomic Blonde," thanks in no small part to Enzo Angileri, her longtime hairdresser of 16 years and personal hairstylist in the fi lm. Angileri used wigs to create customized black-haired and redheaded looks for several different scenes in the movie, but it was Theron's platinum blonde look that took center stage. Six blonde wigs were required to maintain her appearance during the action-packed thriller, shot in Budapest, Hungary, and Berlin. "Blondie's Deborah Harry was my full-on source of inspiration," says Angileri, who notes that his penchant for Harry's look prompted the fi lmmakers to change the movie's name to "Atomic Blonde," a reference to Blondie's 1979 hit song "Atomic." When the wigmaker for the fi lm could only fi nd ash blonde hair, Angileri turned to Redken celebrity colorist Tracey Cunningham, who also works regularly with Theron, to transform it into his desired shade of platinum blonde. Cunningham bleached the hair, leaving a few inches out, and then created a soft root shadow before toning to counteract warmth and achieve a cool effect. "She was the right person to do it," Angileri says. "I believe in her craftsmanship." See her formula above.
