Redken Certified Colorist and PureArtist Toni Fountain, who works at Indulgence, The Salon, of Lakewood, California, had a tough challenge at hand when her client walked in the door and requested a major change. One look at her "before" picture and it's clear--change was certainly in order! (Let's save the fried greens for tomatoes!).
Here's her process for fixing up her client!
 
Formula 1: 30-volume developer with Redken Blonde Dimensions lightener
Formula 2: Redken Chromatics 4VR and 15V
Formula 3: Equal parts Redken Shades EQ 06WG and 06AA
Formula 4: Redken Shades EQ 1.25 oz of 03RV + .25 oz of violet kicker + .5 oz Clear

Step 1: Apply Formula 1 to zones two and three, and follow with a Redken Chemistry Extreme conditioning treatment.

Step 2: At zone 1, apply Formula 2.

Step 3: As a filler, apply Formula 3 to the pre-lightened hair.

Step 4: As a final glaze, apply Formula 4 to the full head.

MAKEOVER: Three Sessions Of Beauty

Maggie Mulhern | March 2, 2017

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.
