Maggie Mulhern | April 26, 2016 | 3:41 PM
HAIR BACK STORY: My client found me through social media (gotta love it) and sent me a photo from the one and only hair magician himself, Guy Tang. He is such an inspirational artist I was so excited to create my own interpretation of his amazing work!

THE FUN PART: Part the hair into four sections (2 in the front 2 in the back). Apply Joico Color Intensity. Start with red to firey coral with hot pink added (2:1) to orange and hot pink (2:1) with a ribbon of clear to yellow. Apply in a color melting technique and blend each color together to create a dimensional melt. Process for 25 minutes.
