  • Edoardo starts by applying color 1 to the root areas for refreshed base
  • Color 2 is then applied to the mid-lengths and ends in select sections at the back and front of the head
  • After slightly backcombing each section, color 3 is applied to select sections, followed by colors 4 and 5. Layering the colors in an almost random fashion using the #COLOURINSIDE technique creates interest and depth between the tonal contrasts
  • After developing for the required time Edoardo uses BLONDME Tone Enhancing Shampoo and Tone Enhancing Bonding Mask for Cool Blondes to keep the hair strong and color fresh
