Fixing an At-Home Job Gone Wrong

Anne Moratto | September 20, 2015 | 2:15 PM

Nicole DeStefano (@nicole_does_beauty) helped this young male client remove the effects of an at-home job that went, well, bad.

"Another corrective color today," DeStefano says on her Instagram post. "This is why I strongly suggest you don't try to color your hair at home. Corrective colors cost more in the long run than coming in from the start!"  #Truth

We share her process below:


  • Wella Blondor and 20volume with Olaplex,  mid-length to ends.
  • Put under heat for 10 minutes.
  • Then used Blondor and 30volume with Olaplex at roots and under heat for 10 minutes.
  • Toned with Wella 12/61 with 40volume at bowl to help lift just a little bit extra. "It kicked any extra warmth out."

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.
