THE FIX: Messed Up To Pink and Purple Melt

Maggie Mulhern | August 2, 2016 | 1:04 PM

Jennifer Dozier Horter (@bombshellsalon), Paul Mitchell National Educator and owner of Bombshell Salon, Ellicott City, MD, had quite the challenge with this new guest, a stylist from another salon. "She came to a class where I was doing a presentation and decided that we were an appropriate choice for a project of this magnitude," says Horter. "The fact that she was a stylist really helped her in understanding this process."

Here Horter shares the HOW TO in this correction that took 5 1/2 hours:

(Client arrived with a black to purple ombre)

Step 1: Apply a color remover (roots to ends) to her existing black to purple ombre. Shampoo with Paul Mitchell Shampoo 3. Rinse and dry the hair.

Step 2: Place foil highlights in alternating diagonal sections using Paul Mitchell Synchrolift with 20 volume Paul Mitchell cream developer to where the black pulled up yellow and orange.

Step 3:  Paint Colorxg 1part 4rv and 1 part 3vr with a ribbon of equal parts Red and Violet Intensifiers blended with Paul Mitchell 10 volume Cream Developer to where the purple pulled up mint green.

Step 4: Process for 35 minutes and then rinse and shampoo with Paul Mitchell Shampoo 2. Apply Paul Mitchell Hair Repair Treatment combined with Paul Mitchell Super Charged Moisturizer. Cover with a cap and place under a hood dryer for 15 minutes.

Step 5: Rinse thoroughly and dry. From roots to ends apply Paul Mitchell Inkworks Hot Pink with a dot of Purple. Process for 25 minutes. Rinse thoroughly but do not shampoo. Apply Paul Mitchell Forever Blonde Dramatic Repair Spray.

Step 6: CUT/FINISH - In order to salvage the length remove only an inch, but add in layers to the interior where there were none. Finish with a round brush using a 1 and 1/2 inch curling iron in vertical back sections. Spray with Marula Oil Finishing spray.

MAKEOVER: Basic Blonde To Purple/Lilac Melt

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.
