When it comes to creating walnut blonde shades, it's all about respecting the hair's integrity while tailoring the look to your client for a healthy-looking mane. Try these tips as you lift and tone...
1. Choose a Bond-Strengthening Hair Lightener
Healthy hair is beautiful hair, so strengthen your client's strands throughout the lifting process with a bond-strengthening lightener, featuring our WellaPlex ingredient. You can mix the No1 Bond Maker directly into your Blondor formulas (including Freelights and Multi Blonde Powder), or reach for BlondorPlex, which already has the technology built in. Then, brush on the lightener wherever your client wants their walnut blonde highlights or balayage to pop. Whether they're enhancing their natural base or indulging in a big transformation, WellaPlex will support the internal hair structure.
2. Reach for Hair Color Products to Suit Your Client's Goals
With a range of walnut blonde hues across the Wella Professionals portfolio, you can craft a hair color to flawlessly suit your client and their unique goals. For example, if they want to add gray coverage to their service or embrace a no-bleach blonde, we've got you covered with their ideal formula. Here's how to choose the perfect hair color product...
For up to 100% gray coverage and color intensity, try: Koleston Perfect permanent hair color. With ultra-precision color technology, the collection of vegan shades delivers rich results from roots to ends, and they can even be used to disguise gray hair or white hair.
For a bleach-free walnut blonde, try: Koleston Perfect Special Blondes. This dreamy edit of light, luminous hair colors gives you lifting and toning in a single step, so you can achieve a beautiful no-bleach blonde.
For shine you can feel, try: Shinefinity Color Glaze. The zero damage, zero lift glaze subtly enhances your client's hair color, while veiling locks in a translucent glow. Apply to a naturally blonde head of hair or pre-lightened strands for sheer radiance.
For richness and vibrancy, try: Color Touch. This low-commitment, demi-permanent hair color comes in an extensive range of shades with stunning results. From sun-drenched blondes to velvety brunettes, each one mimics natural hair hues by working with – not covering – your client's multi-tones.
3. Finish Their Hair Color Service with a Clear Glaze
No matter which hair color product you used to tone your client's walnut blonde, their fresh shade will benefit from a clear Shinefinity Glaze. It works in much the same way as the Color Glaze, except you reach for the 00/00 Crystal Clear toner instead of a tint. Mix it 1:1 with the Brush & Bowl or Bottle Activator, then apply from roots to ends of colored hair. Depending on how much shine your client craves, you can leave it on for anywhere between five and 20 minutes before rinsing to reveal a glossy glow.
