Take Your Toning Services to the Next Level with Blonde Toning

Blonde Toning such as this sunkissed hue by Zoë Irwin, can be used to create a sheer pastel or opalescent metallic sheen after pre-lightening.

Zoë Irwin, Wella Professionals Colour Trends Expert explains:

The technique I love using is Palm Painting which is from the French way of balayaging.
