When we saw this makeover on Instagram, we had to know more. Hairdresser Nicole Boccio of Cactus Salon and Spa (@cactussalonsmithtown), Smithtown, New York, says "I had been doing a doubled processed blonde on Kelly Sampson for some time now. She came requesting 'mermaid hair'. She had 2 inches of level 5 roots." Here Boccio shares the details for this makeover.
Carissa Castiglia (@colorbymisscariss) of Eva Scrivo Salons (@evascrivosalons) says, "My client was a natural level 6 and desired a golden level 9." Here she shares how she achieved this gorgeous result.
Kim Bruce (@themisfitblonde), co-owner of Monroe on Mane (@monroeonmane), Sturbridge, MA., specializes in blondes and hairdressing. "This guest has been a client of mine for almost a year now. It has taken four sessions to achieve our desired shade of silver blonde." Here Bruce shares the details for the transformation.
Marianne Lohr (@mannie_mak), a freelance artist based in Bethlehem,PA., says "My new client came in to see me because she was never happy with her blonde and how gold/yellow it was. She wanted to be an all over platinum blonde at first, but then had mentioned how she's always wanted to have purple hair. Her dream came true that day." Details here.
