Audrey Whitt (@hairby.audrey) creative color and Balayage specialist at Salon SAS in Huntington, WV, is "driven by extreme passion for all things beauty and I love being able to not only change someone's hair but to change the way they feel about themselves!" When we saw this transformation on her Instagram page, we asked for more details. "She came to me as a first time client looking for a fun vivid color. She had about 2 inches of regrowth level 6 and her mids to ends was a warm 7/8."

Here Whitt shares the HOW TO:

STEP 1: To the root area apply Schwarzkopf BlondMe with 20 volume, and then the same lightener with 30 volume and Olaplex to the mids and ends of her hair. Process for 40 minutes. Rinse.

STEP 2: Then apply Kenra Demi 10sm and 8sm equal parts with a line of violet booster (to cancel the warmth) followed by Olaplex step 2. Process for 30 minutes. Dry completely.

STEP 3: Apply a blend of Pravana Violet with Black booster on the entire underneath using a zigzag part sectioning out below the occipital bone. Also apply as a shadow root.

STEP 4: To the top section apply Pravana Lavender with a dot of Violet. Process for 30 minutes, rinse and dry.

This service took about 5 hours from start to finish.

Marianne Lohr (@mannie_mak), a freelance artist based in Bethlehem,PA., says "My new client came in to see me because she was never happy with her blonde and how gold/yellow it was. She wanted to be an all over platinum blonde at first, but then had mentioned how she's always wanted to have purple hair. Her dream came true that day." Details here.
