Kimemily Pham (@kimwasabi), a master stylist and owner of Excellent Hair Salon & Spa Inc. located in Fremont CA. says "It was almost a year since I last saw my client. I had previously lightened her hair from virgin hair. She had about 5 inches of new growth of a level 3. My goal was to lift her base and refresh her ends to at least a level 9, light blonde."

Here she shares the details for this beautiful transformation:

-Flat foil new growth hair starting at the nape first with Kenra Lightener with 40 volume + Olaplex

-Work toward the crown. Process at room temperature for 50 minutes. Remove all the foils but do not rinse.

-Mix a fresh batch of Kenra no ammonia lightener, 30 volume + Olaplex.

-Apply to the scalp, midshafts and ends. Cover with a plastic cap. Process at room temperature for 20 minutes.

-Rinse well, treat with Olaplex #2 for 15 minutes. Shampoo and dry hair completely.

-Apply Kenra Guy Tang's favorites metallic 8sm 2oz+ 2 inches of blue booster + 4oz 9 volume to zone 1.

-Color melt zone 1 & 2 together with 10sm 2oz + 1inch blue booster + 1 inch violet booster + 4 oz 9 volume.

-Take Guy Tang's Diamonds in the Sky technique, alternate Kenra Color Creatives in Teal, Violet, Pink and Yellow mixed with Olaplex #2  (1:2 ratio) throughout zone 2, concentrated and saturated at zone 3. 

-Process at room temperature for 30 minutes.

-Rinse, shampoo, condition and style.

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.
