"I love using Flash Lift Bonder Inside when doing foil work because it lifts the hair to a perfect, even canvas that allows me to steer the color in any direction that I want."

Blonde By Foil With Matt Rez

“I love using the Flash Lift Bonder Inside! This lightener is great for clients from a level 1 to 8; virgin or colored bases. It’s also great for color correction clients that need the extra protection of bonder. When blonding with foils, I tease some of the hair for a softer transition."

Matt's Hot Tip:
"While processing, keep in mind that the lightener gives the illusion that the hair being lifted is warmer than it actually is. For example, if your desired lift is a level 9, wipe or wash when hair saturated with the lightener appears to be at a level 8."

Highlights With Silvia Reis

“I love using Redken’s Flash Lift Bonder Inside because of the consistent and dependable lift. Although it is a powerful lightener, I love that it has the bonder inside to ensure the integrity and health of the client’s hair. Any hair artist working on blonde clients or clients wanting to go Lighter need Flash Lift Bonder Inside in their color cabinet.”

Silvia's Hot Tip:
"I like to mix Flash Lift Bonder Inside with 30 volume or lower as it is a high strength lightener. This is great for hi-lift clients and clients wanting to go lighter than three levels in one session."

Color Correction with Cassandra McGlaughlin

"Flash Lift Bonder Inside is my go-to lightener for corrective color clients! It’s great for tackling all color correction scenarios. From super grown-out hair color, uneven bands of hair color or even previous permanent hair color. It gives predictable, even lift all while keeping the health and integrity of the hair intact."

Free Hand with Jamie Sea

"Free hand lightener is specifically formulated for hair painting techniques! It lays on the surface of the hair and has a smooth glideability factor that makes balayage a breeze! On average this product can give you 3-5 levels of lift with a neutral to warm finish. You can balayage any level hair!

Jamie's Hot Tip:
"I prefer using Free Hand Lightener with a 1:1 ratio. I also mist the hair with a fine mist water bottle prior to application. This helps with product mobility!"
