Maggie Mulhern | September 18, 2016 | 8:06 AM


Shannon Rha (@shannonrha) of Shannon Hair Salon in Valencia, CA., is all about advanced education and has trained with Vidal Sassoon, Arrojo, Toni & Guy, Di Petro Todd and Wella.  "I adore what I do so I never have to work a day in my life. I have a constant hunger to learn more about the newest techniques and colors. That hunger will never fade."

Here she shares the details on this makeover that we found on her Instagram page: 

Step 1: Start in the back. Using a diamond shape foilyage technique, tease small sections and then paint singles and doubles up to the occiptal bone. Color used: Wella Blondor with 20 volume developer. 

Step 2: At the crown, switch to 30 volume developer blended with Olaplex applied in babylights. In  between foils continue with foilyage painting V's and W's, still teasing the hair to give it a more organic, natural blend.

Step 3: Continue to the front of the head applying baby-lights around the hairline with 30 volume and Olaplex. 

Step 4: Lift to a level 9, rining sections after processing. Apply Olaplex #2 for 5 minutes and then shampoo. Towel dry.

Step 5: Root shadow tone with Redken Shades EQ equal parts 7N and 7NB. Process fo 10 minutes and then rinse.

Step 6: Apply Redken Shades EQ equal parts 9NB and 9P all over for 5 minutes. Rinse and condition.
