Presley Poe, (@PresleyPoe) Artistic Educator, Brand Specialist and Platform Artist for Pravana based at The Parlour, NE Portland, OR,  says her model arrived with primarily virgin hair at a level 5 with a lot of natural red in her hair and had a bit of previous lightening towards the mid-shaft and ends. 

Here Poe shares the details for this transformation:

Step 1: Balayage with 3/4 Pure Light Balayage Lightener to 1/4th Pure Light Powder Lightner: 2  parts High Activator.

Step 2: Process at room temperature for 55 minutes, lifting to level 8G.  Shampoo and condition with Pravana Moisture Rich Shampoo and Conditioner.

Step 3: Apply base formulation of Pravana Demi-Gloss Color Lush 15grms 6G. 15grms 7c:10grms 5rc

Step 4: Apply midshaft formulation using Pravana Demi-Gloss Color Lush 6G 15grms: 9g 15grms: 7C 10grms: 5grms gold additive

Step 5: Process for 20 minutes at room temperature.

"To create a softer brighter effect  around the face I utilized the midshaft formulation an inch arched section in front of each ear. To create depth I made half moon sections behind the ear connecting at a 2 inch subsection at the nape saturating with base formula. Controlling her underlying pigment helped to achieve a rich and dense Spiced Pumpkin Copper with guaranteed color longevity."

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.
