Feel the sunshine

“To start, I used Schwarzkopf Blond Me Premium Lightener 2% toned with Schwarzkopf Professional Vibrance 91 = 1-9 gel developer,” says Suzie. “This helped me to achieve a clean base before going in with my yellow. I then used Schwarzkopf Professional Yellow Chroma and 0.55 vibrance booster on the mid-lengths and ends to create the intense, striking yellow hue.”

The end result

My aim with the finished look was to create an almost gradient effect whereby the hair would start as a beautiful clean white/bleach blonde at the roots and then transition to a stunning vibrant yellow,” explains Suzie. “To style and enhance the look of the yellow tone, I used the Schwarzkopf Professional Session Label range including the Session Label La Gelée to create a wet, flexible look.”
