  • First of all, you must go to a parlor because nobody except a professional can bring the exact hair complexion you want. Tell your colorist if you’re allergic to any chemical or if you’ve recently done something to style your hair.
  • Next, the stylist will check their list and choose a color for blonding that matches your hair color. If you haven’t applied any dye before, you don’t need extra blonding; moreover, rebonding also helps the new dye set on hair quickly.
  • However, if your colorist doesn’t want to blond your hair, let it be; choose the color, for instance, level-6 hair color ash. You may paint all over the head or highlight a specific part; the choice is yours.
  • If you dye all hair, you will need over 40 foils, but your work will go well with 10-12 foils if you highlight some parts.
  • Next, your colorist will prepare the hair color for you; the amount depends on your hair quantity. Remember, your hair dye and developer should be in a 1:1 ratio, or you may say in equal portion.
  • Mix them well with a brush; whoever is mixing the color should wear hand gloves to avoid the chemical. There should be two bowls with hair dye; one will contain the base, and another will contain the ultimate shade.
  • Make separate sections in your hair, apply the dyes evenly on hairs, and cover the hair sections with foils after applying color.
  • Check after 15-20 minutes if the color is coming right or not; you can keep the dye up to 30 minutes.
  • Wash your hair with clean water; you should use color-protecting shampoo if the dye’s manufacturers allow applying shampoo while washing color.
  • However, rinse and dry your hair with a hairdryer, and you will have the desired hair color; follow the instructions to make it long-lasting.
