“When you’re taking someone from a dark brunette to an ash blonde, this needs care and time. It’s not a one salon visit. You need patience, confidence, and trust in your colourist – something Vicky has, as we’ve worked together for so long. Ensuring Vicky’s hair was in optimum condition throughout the process was vital for us, so I used my ‘low and slow lifting’ technique over 3 appointments.”
Harold’s technique: I applied my “Malibu Wash” technique, which removed all of Vicky’s old colour. This was achieved using the Fudge Professional Clean Blonde Speed+ with a 3% vol mix. This is a super conditioning bleach that’s tingle free and can lift up to 7 shades for lightening-bright blonde. I left that on for 2 hours for a low and slow removal to ensure a healthier result.
Harold’s technique: This is where I started to bring the new blonde to life. I applied a full head of baby highlights using the Speed+ 3% at the back and 6% on the front to ensure an even colour lift and maintain her hair’s condition.
Harold’s technique: The third visit was to deep-condition Vicky’s hair and then apply a Fudge Professional toner throughout, so she was ready for her filming and final stage of the transformation.
Harold says: “Throughout the colouring process, Vicky Pattison used the Fudge Professional Damage Rewind Shampoo and Conditioner to ensure her hair health was not only maintained but improved from the start to the finish of her transformation. The innovative Opti-PLEX™ technology in the care products, penetrate deep into the hair’s core and reconstruct bonds after chemical treatments, so was ideal to use. Then, once the Fudge Professional Clean Blonde Damage Rewind Shampoo and Conditioner was applied on the day of filming, the result was a gorgeous Ashy Champagne Blonde that really works with her skin tone.”
