To create this Bridgette Bardot (or 60’s Sex Kitten) inspired look, the team started with her existing light blonde highlighted color. This look was a major color conversion, requiring a mega-dose of Redken strengthening and protective treatments, which were used to maintain long lasting richness.  The final result was produced by using a combination of different red and copper tones.  The foundation color is a rich (level 5) copper with a sprinkle of (level 6) lighter copper orange, and peaking out from underneath a deep (level 4) red brown. 

To style, Redken Clear Moisture Instant Polishing Prep (leave in cutting and detangling lotion) was layered with the new Redken Crystal Curls, all the way through before blow-drying with a large round brush for volume. Once the hair was blown dry, a 1.5-inch extra large iron was used to loosely spiral curl medium sized sections.  When the entire head was done, the hair was lightly brushed through the ends to maintain the softness. The front was pinned back and the pins were hidden by creating a “head band” made from her natural hair.  The crown was backcombed for height, and then Redken Forceful 23 (super strength finishing spray) was used to finish.
