Hair Products: The Ultimate Blonde

For Shakira's transition from naturally dark hair to luminous blonde locks, Redken Creative Consultant for Color, Tracey Cunningham used Redken's New Flash Lift Maximum Power Lightening Powder. According to Tracey, "Flash Lift allows me to customize my client's blondes, from extreme platinum blonde results to natural, balayage highlights. I also love the consistency, and more importantly, the consistent lift!"

Flash Lift Maximum Power Lightening Powder is Redken's first powder lightener to achieve up to 8 levels of lift. It boasts a 20% faster processing time (compared to lighteners that lift up to 7 levels), and utilizes the conditioning pro-vitamin B5 for high lift with zero sacrifice. With its high adherence, creamy formula that allows precise application and uniform lift, Flash Lift practically guarantees beautiful color every time.
For Shakira, Tracey used: Flash Lift 1:1 ratio mixed with 30 vol. Pro-oxide Cream Developer
Hot Tip: Once the foils are in place, apply your favorite Shades EQ Cream or Gloss shade to the hair in between the foils to enhance the entire look.
