Julianne Hough is giving us life, the BLONDE LIFE® that is, and our friends at Nine Zero One Salon made sure she had the brightest blonde yet using Joico Blonde Life®, but they didn’t just stop at bright healthy blonde color. Nine Zero One hair-colorist Jill Buck not only used Joico Blonde Life Lightening Powder and LumiShine® hair color, but she made sure to tap the color bond-building and protective powers of the next generation in bond building – Joico’s NEW Defy Damage™. Here’s the full formula and how-to straight from Jill to you:

Step 4: Add highlights throughout the top and sides of the head. Use Formula 3 in Zone 1 and Formula 1 in Zone 2, leaving out the ends again.

Step 5: Process and lift to a pale-yellow level 9-10
