It is made with the technique of totalization, or a lightening followed by the application of an even colder tint on the locks. The ash blond is a very versatile nuance, suitable for both women who love the more traditional style, and for those who instead focus on eccentric cut and color. Moreover, it lends itself well to contrasting games between tips and roots, for example with the balayage technique.

For those who love to dare, the pearl platinum is enhanced even with the long, feminine and sensual bob.
