This “Honey” of a Formula Is Perf for Blondes OR Brunettes



The assignment:

“My client was a brunette when she came in, she wanted to be dimensional with ribbons of blonde.”

The Lucky Break:

“She had virgin hair, so she was pretty much the best client you could ever ask for!”

The gorg factor:

“This look is sooo diverse! I love the highs and lows that bring such dimension to my client’s healthy hair.”

The maintenance solution:

“Upkeep is unbelievably low-key, which is great for a client who’s new to color. If you’re naturally light, you simply have to touch up the dark areas; if you’re dark, it’s vice versa – just touch up the highlights”

The take-away:

“I recommended the entire Blonde Life line to my client for perfect upkeep: the Brightening Shampoo and Conditioner, Masque, Veil, Brilliant Glow Brightening Oil, and Brilliant Tone Violet Foam Styler. They’re everything!”
