MAKEOVER: Faded Coral To Peacock Sombre

Maggie Mulhern | June 14, 2016 | 4:13 AM

Kylie Butler (@kylierose_hairartist)  of The Nest, inside the Salons by JC, Seattle, WA., loves working with fashion colors. When MODERN saw this transformation on her Instagram page, we had to know more.

Here Butler shares the details for this makeover that took 3 hours:

"My client came to me with very grown out, very old color. She had used Special Effects Atomic Pink in her hair over one year ago, and the color turned into a vibrant coral tone. Our goal was to refresh her hair, but take away the maintenance of a full bleach and tone, and we wanted to cover those coral ends."

Step 1: Apply full balayage using Wella Blondor Freelights mixed with 40 volume developer and Olaplex. Process for 45 minutes.

Step 2: Rinse the hair and apply Olaplex step 2 for 10 minutes at the bowl. Shampoo. Tone the ends with Paul Mitchell 10A to "cool down" the coral shade.

Step 3: Mix three different bowls of Pravana Vivids:

Bowl 1 - Pravana green

Bowl 2 - one ounce Pravana Blue and a half an ounce of Pravana Neon Blue

Bowl 3 - one ounce Pravana Violet with half an ounce Pravana Wild Orchid. 

Step 4: Apply these colors starting at the nape, rotating each shade, 2 in a section. Separate with Embee Meche. Process for 25 minutes. Rinse in cold water and then condition.

How To Winterize a Summer Blonde: Babylights with Reverse Balayage using Redken pH Bonder

Alison Alhamed and Jamie Newman | November 29, 2016

Our summer blonde made the perfect model to demonstrate the beauty of Redken’s new pH Bonder because although she isn’t frequently coloring her hair, living in New York City means she’s walking outside a lot with exposure to the sun and city elements—plus thermal damage from regular use of a curling wand or flatiron. So with protection and hair health being the two key benefits of the additive, she was all in.
