Amy Godo (@color_ahead) of JV Hair Design, Stratford, Conn, has been coloring this client's hair since last year. "She was originally a faded reddish brown and wanted to be a blonde with a shadow root." Godo and client then decided to do something a bit more "colorful".

Here she shares the how-to for this dimensional and pretty transformation for what she describes as "A labor of love!":

Step 1: Fill the hair with Goldwell Colorance soft color 9GB =8G on damp hair. Directly over apply Goldwell Colorance 9GB=8G. Process for 20 minutes. Rinse and towel dry.

Step 2: Fill with Goldwell Soft Color foam 8G=7K to add more warmth. Then overlay with Goldwell Colorance 8G=7N. Process 20 minutes, then rinse and dry.

Step 3: For dimension, alternate in a color blocking style:

Formula 1 - Scruples Shadowlights 2GN = 4GN and 10 volume.

Formula 2 - Goldwell 5RR and 10 volume.

Step 4: Process for 30 minutes and then rinse from the hair.

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.
