Smoked Marshmallow is picking up steam!
What is it, exactly? The techniqueâ€”courtesy of Bakersfield, Californiaâ€“based colorist Megan Martinezâ€”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.
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.
