Khloe Nguyen (glamdoll1) of Orange County, CA, says, "My level 2 client, Asian, came in with about 3 inches of new growth, mid lengths about a level 5 with some uneven spots, with ends level 8 blonde." Here Nguyen shares the details for this faded to dusty lavender makeover.
Tiffany Massey (@tiffanymhair) of Structure Hair Studio (@structurehs) in Dahlonega, GA. says this box-dyed brunette (a natural level 8) wanted to go solid platinum blonde. SIX hours later, mission accomplished! Details here.
Gioryi Darwich (@Gigi_your_stylist) of Elegant Studio, Philadelphia, PA, had quite the challenge when she met this client who did not want a touch up. "She actually wanted to keep the top dark brown." Darwich realized thin, back-to-back highlights would erase the band.
Darcy Kost-botelho (@Hairbydarcykb_) of Orange Salon in Northern California, says that her client was looking for "a vibrant purple, pink blend with natural roots. This project took around four hours to achieve." Here she shares the details for this makeover.
