Margot Robbie Went Even Blonder for ‘Barbie – The Movie’ Red Carpet Premiere: Celebrity Colourist Jacob Schwartz explains how he did it with Schwarzkopf Professional & BLONDME
“I really wanted Margot’s blonde to embody Barbie on the red carpet without it being so obvious and over bleached. I wanted it to sparkle when the light hits her hair and bounce like those legendary blonde supermodel and actresses of the 90’s” says Expert Celebrity Hair Colourist, Jacob Schwartz for Schwarzkopf Professional.
Babylight Technique with BLONDME by Schwarzkopf Pro
Using fine weaves, highlight using a babylight technique with BLONDME Premium Lightener 9+ with 6%/20volume BLONDME Premium Developer to create even lift while protecting the bonds in the hair. I like that the BLONDME Developers have higher level of care ingredients inside the bottle (oil) so it helps to also protect the cuticle during development & the Schwarzkopf Professional IGORA VIBRANCE has Aquaxyl which helps maintain / add moisture in the hair while toning).
BLONDME Care for Golden Light Blonde
Lift to a golden light blonde and then cleanse the hair using the BLONDME All Blondes Rich Shampoo and BLONDME All Blondes Rich Conditioner. This will help to build new bonds in the hair and prepare it for an even toning application.
Adding shine with IGORA VIBRANCE by Schwarzkopf Pro
On Damp hair apply Schwarzkopf Professional IGORA VIBRANCE to tone the blonde and add shine. Use 9-0 around the hairline to maintain brightness and 7-0 for a shadow root on the top half of the head and 6-0 underneath the crown for extra depth at the base mixed with 1.9%/6-Volume Activator Gel. I like that IGORA Vibrance is Alkaline as I find it gives better penetration and longevity.
For the mid-lengths and ends, apply a mixture of IGORA VIBRANCE 9-0+9-4+8-46 with equal parts 1.9% / 6-Volume Activator Gel to create a beautiful lived in warm blonde tone. I love that Demi offers longevity without the commitment of build-up.
Leave to develop for 15 to 20 minutes.

6. Carefully rinse the deeper base colour first while holding the lighter pieces up to maintain brightness on the ends. Finish with another shampoo and condition with the BLONDME All Blondes Rich Shampoo and BLONDME All Blondes Rich Conditioner to seal the colour and rebuild strength in the hair.
