Soft SMUDGE: To create this soft blonde color I start by bumping the base. For your Naturally ashy blondes go 1 shade darker and 1 shade warmer. I do this because I need to deposit warmth. This client was a ashy 8 I used Schwarzkopf 6-5 and 8-0 equal parts 30 volume. On naturally darker clients you don’t need to deposit warmth. I am a natural level 6 and I use 7-1 to control the warmth and lift. Next I add a few highlights, when adding highlights I don’t usually touch at the root usually 2 inches off. Place the highlights organically where you want to see them peak through. The last 5 minutes the color is processing I go in with Redken shades 7nb 7gb and run between foils. A lot of times I even open a few of the foils and run the Redken over the base and into the bleach. This creates that soft seamless look.
