Heavy foil, root tap and tone. That’s the basis of how Beauty Launchpad educator Ashlie Marmo (@ashytones) gets her blonding clients into luminous shape. “I like this method because it gives a softer grow-out so the client can go longer in between sessions while keeping some dimension,” Marmo says.

“This is a favorite go-to technique for me because it’s a mixture of different foil placements,” Marmo explains. “To me, the more foil placements, the softer the grow-out and more natural the hair looks. This technique is great for anyone and can be customized according to starting level and goal.”
