Kesley Reynolds (@khbkesley) is a freelance hair artist out of Salt Lake City, Utah. Her client came to her after an unfortunate reaction to chlorine.

“My client previously had a rooty beach blonde and she decided to take a swim in a chlorinated pool,” Reynolds said. “Her hair, unfortunately, turned green. She came in and told me she wanted the green out and a more natural balayaged, toned-down blonde.”

STEP 1: “I balayage highlighted her using Matrix V lights, Olaplex step 1 and 20 volume.”

STEP 2: “I low lighted her with Aloxxi permanent haircolor 1/2oz 8NN, 1/4oz 7N, 1/4oz 8R and 10 volume. I let these process for 25 minutes.”

STEP 3: Rinse (but the green wasn’t completely out).

STEP 4: Toned at the sink using Aloxxi 1/4oz 8N, 1/4oz 8R and 10 volume. “I watched carefully and left it on for about two minutes.”

STEP 5: Olaplex step 2 for recommended processing time.

STEP 6: Shampoo and conditioned.

STEP 7: “I cut a couple inches off of her hair, styled using Sexy Hair products and my GHD flat iron.”

MAKEOVER: Three Sessions Of Beauty

Jenn Malone (@jmalonehair) at Agence Salon, San Dimas, California, says her client "had 85% virgin hair. Her goal is to be a 'rooty' platinum blonde while still keeping the 'lived in' look. My main goal was to get her to her desired color, while still maintaining the integrity of her hair. Patience is the key in achieving this!" How to here.
