“Paris has a ‘strong
meets feminine’ concept.
it’s a really
the same time
it’s very soft
and the color palette is
very muted so it has that
feminine quality to it.”
Meagan Reitz (@meaganreitzhair) of Skin Bliss Spa and Salon, Albuquerque, New Mexico, wowed us with this makeover that we found on Instagram. We contacted her to get more details. Here she shares the how-to.
Vanessa Castro (@extraglossy_) from NYC says she is "obsessed with doing hair - especially color corrections. I love that they challenge me to think and always try new things." Here she had an opportunity to meet a challenge head on in a correction that took 6 1/2 hours.
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.
This client had dreams of platinum blonde, but then all of a sudden, she wanted to go red! This was a big change from platinum, so colorist Lauren Barton made SURE this was what her client wanted. Her client said to go for it!
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.
