Platinum is one of the strongest, most valuable metals around. Platinum Power Blonde is, too, when you get there with Blonde Life Powder Lightener, our brand-new color innovation that works lightning-fast and nails nine+ levels of lift in a single service. Celebrity colorist, Denis De Souza, shows you how to recreate this fierce, dazzling technique, and learn about the products that keep newly blonde hair gleaming.
Pre-color the base with Formula 1 to create an icy-looking natural blonde canvas. Add dimension by taking horizontal micro-weave sections at the nape with Formula 2 from scalp to ends.
Continue working upward toward the occipital bone with Formula 2. Start on the right side then move to the left, leaving natural hair between the foiled sections to keep your blonde looking natural. You should have approximately five foiled sections on each side.
Take a ¾-inch square parting above the occipital bone in the center back.
Using Formula 2, continue working in back-to-back horizontal micro-weave sections toward the center top.

STEP 6: SIDES
Take a small section that’s 3 inches wide from the front fringe area and pin it out of the way for now.
Starting with a vertical micro-weave section at the hairline, work toward the ear pivoting gradually upward. Sections will become vertical-diagonal and then horizontal (parallel to the center part).
STEP 8: SIDES
Incorporate fine slices with micro-weave sections from the corner of the brow to the temple.
Repeat the process on the opposite side, leaving out the fringe.
Place back-to-back horizontal micro-weave slices, starting at the hairline and working upward. Place foils close to the scalp and apply Formula 2 as close to the scalp as possible. Repeat for approximately three foils.
Process color, then shampoo with Blonde Life Brightening Shampoo. Rinse, apply K-PAK Cuticle Sealer, wait 5 minutes, then rinse hair again.
