How to Get Pearl Blonde Hair

BY SALLY MADISON
NATIONAL COLOR TRAINER



Are you looking to achieve a Pearl Blonde hair result on your client?

It's a look which is really in demand!

And it's a look that a stylist who considers herself a blonding stylist absolutely needs to be able to do.

Do it, and clients will keep coming to see you.

Today, we are going to show you four different pearl blonde looks.

And show you exactly you can go about achieving them.

First, Lift the hair to level 10

The first step is to lift the hair really, really well.

Hair stylists sometimes under-bleach and that is a no-no if you are serious about getting to a Pearl Blonde result.

Put on a lot of mixture and saturate the hair really, really well.

Check as it lifts and apply more mixture to parts which are not lifting as fast as they need to.

And do not rinse too soon. Wait until you are truly at a level 9 or ideally, level 10.

See images below for what the hair should look like at the backwash.

If you have had difficulty getting to Pearl Blonde in the past, chances are you did not bleach right up to this point.

And for that, a quality bleach is really essential.

We would recommend you use Ugly Duckling's Brilliant Blondexx Bleach.

It has Bond Protect inside the formula. Meaning it will protect the hair as it processes and lifts - no other additive is required.

And because it has Bond Protect, it will protect the scalp also.

Use this with 20 or 30 Vol developer and you can achieve up to 7 levels lift.

Hair Toned with Intense Pearl Blonde 100V

Once you have bleached as blonde as you can, use Ugly Duckling Intense Pearl Blonde toner 100V with 20 Vol.

This toner is once of the fastest acting toners on teh market.

It also contains a special booster ingredient which is invaluable for kicking out yellow and bumping up the hair an extra level.

Make sure you work fast when using this toner, and pay attention not to over process at the root area.

Rinse when you get the desired color. Around 20 minutes is idea.

Hair Colored with Extra Light Cold Blonde 10.2

If you are looking for a more pure white shade of blonde, as opposed to grey-pearl, then use Ugly Duckling 10.2

This is a regular blonding color, as opposed to toner.

It's the single whitest color in Ugly Duckling's whole blonding portfolio.

It will give you a really rich, 3D blonde color which will look very light, ultra white blonde and natural at the same time.

If, on the other hand, you are looking to take your client a more grey blonde, you can use the Regular Pearl Blonde toner 10V.

This toner has less lift than the intense toner, but more pigmentation.

Lastly, are you looking for a more natural pearl blonde?

There are clients out there who simply won't accept too cold, too pearl a pearl blonde look.

A more natural pearl or violet blonde is what they want.

You can give them that using a demi liquid toner - Blondify.

It's ammonia-free and it does not lift.

Meaning that of course you need to pre-lighten very well.

But it is super well pigmented, and acts fast.

As a non-lifting toner, you can also use it on highlighted areas knowing that it won't lift the base.
