For the Love of Blonde collection, Artistic Director of Professional Hair Color Colin Caruso and the Paul Mitchell® Artistic Team go beyond basic blonde with skillful techniques and the latest product innovations from Paul Mitchell® Blonde.

Whether you call it “smudging” or “breaking the base,” this is an extremely important salon service every colorist should know how to perform when lightening hair.
