Megan Chiles (@hairstylist_MC) of Nico Bella Salon, Camas, Washington, was thrilled her her most recent challenge. "My client come in with about 2 and a half inches of level 6 grow out. Mid shaft to ends was faded Manic Panic red so it was dark pink."

Here she shares the details for this transformation:

STEP 1: Lighten the roots with Wella Blondor and 20 volume. Process for 20 minutes and then put Wella Blondor and 6 volume on the ends "to pull out as much of the pink as I could without compromising the integrity of the hair." The result of the lightening was pale blonde where the regrowth was with a light pink mid shaft and very pale pink ends.

STEP 2: To the root, apply Joico Sapphire Blue.

STEP 3: Then alternate different combinations of color melts from mids to ends:

-Joico Indigo, Light Purple, and Light Purple and Clear mix

-Rusk Teal

-Pravana Neon Green

-A mix of Pravana and Rusk to make a custom emerald green.

"When applying I kept any green shades off of the hair that was still really pink."

STEP 4: Process with heat for 20 minutes. Cool and then rinse with cool water.
