Sandy Blonde Hair Color Formula

Hair by Summer Reid

We don’t get to hear a lot about Sandy Blonde, but this hue is actually one of the prettiest shades of blonde to ever exist. It looks slightly identical to honey blonde but it has more of a cool beige undertone. Clients who don’t like too much warmth in their hair color may find this a suitable alternative.

Balayage: Oway Hbleach Butter Cream Lightener + Oway Hcatalyst 40 Volume Cream Developer

Balayage (Some Ends): Oway Hbleach Butter Cream Lightener + Oway Hcatalyst 20 Volume Cream Developer + Oway Hmilk No Stress Conditioning Treatment
