Toasted Coconut to Smoked Marshmallow - Blondes are heating up!

Smoked Marshmallow is picking up steam!

What is it, exactly? The technique—courtesy of Bakersfield, California–based colorist Megan Martinez—starts with medium-brown roots and lighter ends. From there, she blends highlights and lowlights using horizontal and diagonal placement to achieve the softest root blend.

This is a great way to go blonde without bleaching your entire head and the need for monthly color maintenance is a thing of the past!  This creamy color works with your regrowth to extend time between appointments.  The flawless melting of warm chocolate to caramel to vanilla is a delicious way to go blonde and protect the integrity of your hair.

For a look similar to that above, this formula would be a starting point. 


Apply formulas 1-3 as a full head highlight using foils in a horizontal to diagonal pattern.  Depending on your starting point and desired result, do 2/3 of your foils using formula 1 with formulas 2 and 3 accounting for the remaining 1/3 of the foils.  Process until formula 1 has lifted hair to a level 10.  Remove foils, shampooo and tone with formula 4 for 5 minutes.  Maintain the marshmallow white with a purple shampoo as needed.
