 "The ombre effect I was able to achieve on American Idol semi-finalist Haley Johnsen’s hair was created using VIVIDS, which helped make the funky effect spectacular and my client was beyond thrilled," shared Gleason.

STEP ONE:  "First I bleached out the remaining red pigment she had already with 40 volume."

STEP TWO: "Starting with darkest to lightest, I used the balayage technique, painting the colors freehand with a very small applicator brush – first with violet, then wild orchid, followed by magenta and finished with pink."

FINAL FINISH: "I created an outstanding hair color presentation that I am proud of."
