Any recommendations on a nice Golden blonde colour ? I use Montibello but I have not yet tried any of their golden blondes yet. I Have a new client, she is not happy with her current hairdresser which always adds a bit of pressure! She is a natural level 6 I would say (but I Have only seen photos so it is tough to see) and she has blonde all over. But it is very yellow looking and quite patchy. I can see she has a dark natural level 6 root, then a very golden looking (about an inch maybe) growth of warm blonde, looks like it has not been lifted enough to meAnd then a level 9 band after that (possibly a couple o inches ) where the toner has hit! and then the rest is just very yellow - old bleach I imagine that has not been touched for a long time. She said her hairdresser tried to put highlights through it to get rid of the gold band but it has not worked. Anyway, I have suggested a few golden slices/weaves through there to break it up at a level 7 (her aim is a "natural gold blonde") and lift out that warm inch with some more bleach. I wondered if a nice root tap would work to blend it all in but I am always nervous about the best colour to go for. Usually I go in with a level 5 as my clients are happy with a darker root smudge. But I don't think she will be. Any tips on a nice root smudge that will give her that natural look she is after. Would you suggest I lift the roots first (seeing as they are so dark), then apply a root smudge along with some slices to get some depth in there and add a bit of character? I hope I have made sense, thinking out loud whilst I type!!
