How to play with platinum just in time for spring.

   

SMOKE & MIRRORS


Smoke and Mirrors

Summer blondes are hot—and they carry well into fall (who doesn’t love platinum with fall’s rich colors!). Creating dimensional blondes is a specialty at Di Rosa Haircare New York. Owner Rosa Hawkins uses a combination and placement of tones to enhance movement and texture in cuts, like the one pictured here, titled “Smoke and Mirrors,” due to the smoky color that whispers through a clear creamy beige base (created with Goldwell Elumen Hair Color). Here are the steps to creating this look—be sure to show it to your salon pro! Check out Goldwellnorth-america.com for a Goldwell salon near you.

The Cut & Style

1. Section out the back starting at the nape and using diagonal forward sections. Using a razor, reduce the hairline so it lies as flat as possible and continue to occipital increasing elevation as you move up the head shape.
2. Take 1/4 inch section above the ear and reduce in the same manner as the nape.
3. Release top section and over direct to right side and cut length to approximately top of lip.
4. Create texture and space by “tipping” throughout the hair using your razor.
5. Finish with Goldwell Style Sign Flat Marvel straightening balm and wax spray.
