Color How-To: Smoked-Out Babylights

I'm sure you've lost track of the amount of times a client has come in with months of regrowth, heavy foiling and drastic hair goals. But, how great does it feel when you're able to make those dreams a reality?

Rachel Streeter, owner of Paramount Salon and Spa in Temecula, California, turned her client's five-month regrowth into the perfect blend of smoked-out babylights. Here, she shares the formula with us. 

Get the Look: 

  • Apply Davines Mask 4.11 with 10-volume developer to deposit only
  • Add face-framing babylights to create a “money piece” and foilayage around the crown to maintain a lived-in look. 
  • After rinsing, tone the blonde with Redken Shades 09v to cut any warmth for about 5 minutes. Then, tone with Redken 09T for approximately 10 minutes.
  • Rinse with cool water and style as desired.
