TRANSFORMATION: Box Gold To Pro Vanilla

Maggie Mulhern | May 5, 2016 | 4:10 PM

"This first time guest has never had her hair colored professionally," says Jen Dozier Horter (@bombshellsalon), a Paul Mitchell Senior National Educator and Owner of Bombshell Salon, Ellicott City, MD. "Her ultimate goal was to be a cool platinum blonde. We discussed that sometimes platinum is transparent and can make the hair appear damaged. Vanilla is a term used in our salon meaning it's cool but it still looks creamy and opaque, and with less light reflection the cuticle appears supple. Together we agreed on vanilla."

Here Horter shares the how-to:

Starting level : 8 home color

Step 1 : From off scalp to ends apply Paul Mitchell Dual Purpose Lightener with PM 10vol Cream Developer.

Step 2 : To the new growth apply Paul Mitchell SynchroLift Lightener with PM 10vol Cream Developer.

Step 3: Process both Step 1 and 2 simultaneously for 35 minutes or until hair is lifted beyond a level 10. Shampoo with Paul Mitchell Shampoo 2.

Step 4 : Apply Paul Mitchell Colorxg UTV with PM 10vol cream Developer to damp hair. Process for 20 minutes. Shampoo with PM Forever Blonde Shampoo.

Step 5 : Apply from scalp to ends Paul Mitchell Inkworks 2 oz of white with a dot of Inkworks purple. Process for 15 minutes. Finish with Paul Mitchell Forever Blonde Conditioner and  Forever Blonde Dramatic repair Spray.

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.
