meet:carlos rojas, brunette blonding professor
Hi, Fanola Babes!
Carlos Rojas is an inspirational and talented hairstylist located
in Dallas, Texas. He is kind, smart, and will change your life once
he touches your hair!
"When starting out, I didn't realize there was a lack in the market for that, that beachy brunette, because there's beachy blonde's. But getting the right mixture of that cool, neutral, and warmth is really, really important because I feel like as brunettes, we want to go really ashy with highlights sometimes, but then it turns out be too warm.
So the Brunette Blonding 101 technique I created is really about having bright accents that are maybe a little cooler with a little bit of a neutral as a mid tone and a tiny bit of warmth mixed in there so that it creates some really pretty effects on your skin."

Respect and trust the process. Just because I use all ash based products, does not mean that I want the overall look to be ash. I use Fanola to help me control the warmth and not to completely cancel it out. I believe Brunettes look the most beautiful when they have Ash, neutral, and warm tones working together in their color.
What comes in the kit
No Yellow ultra lightenerSlow and steady wins a race. I want to maintain hair health. I don't use more than 20 vol. Fine hair texture receives 10 vol. Coarse hair texture and hair with previous permanent color receives 10 vol No Yellow Ultra 9 Bleach
No Yellow Clay LightenerMy favorite way to use the no yellow foam is to tone extensions. Shampoo your extensions first then apply the foam until you get your desired tone.
Prestige Coloring 4.8 + 7.8I use 7.8 as the base for the highlight or basebreak and drag it down using 4.8 (how much i use depends on how dark their natural level is) I might only use these colors for the basebreak depending on how light they want the overall color to be
No Yellow 8 Ice + S.1202I use this for a highlight to add dimension. I use S1322 as a base and then drag it with S1202 (The lighter the brunettes’ natural color is, the more S1202 I use)
Vegan No Orange Shampoo + MaskI love for my clients to use this once a week either as a conditioner or a mask to leave in your hair for 5min I love that its nourishes and tones
