The Power Blonde is a bright, striking hair color that is a status symbol and personification of success which says, “I can afford the best!” It is the celebrity color that looks explosive on the runway and is a real head-turner. It starts with understanding advanced color theory to create the most sought-after and difficult to formulate base colors, levels 8 and 9 ash, followed by strategically applied Balayage highlights, processed for just the right amount of time. Students learned how to lift dark natural colors and effectively control gold and red pigments, while covering grey and choosing the appropriate blond tone to illuminate a client’s complexion.
In this class, students reviewed both the latest trends in hair color, as well as classic looks for the more mature, professional woman, a colorist’s bread and butter client. In addition to the focus on the Power Blonde, students covered everything from Balayage basics, proper tools, and color theory, to advanced techniques and the nuances of placement and processing, regardless of the desired outcome.
