Makeover: Faded Red To Blissful Blue

Maggie Mulhern | October 19, 2016 | 8:40 AM

Mandi Fisher (@glam.mandi) of The Hair After Salon, Westminster, Maryland, specializes in vivid colormelting and balayage techniques. "I really love doing crazy hair transformations," she says, "just like my client featured in this picture."

Here Fisher shares the details for this transformation:

BEFORE: Client started off with Goldwell Topchic 6n 6r &5rr all over. "Her favorite color is blue, so she always wanted to experiment. We just colored underneath her hair, creating a peekaboo effect. She loved it so much that she decided to come back in and go all over! I was all game! "

STEPS TO NEW SHADE:

Step 1: Lighten all over with Matrix Light Master bleach with 30 volume developer. Process for 25-30 minutes with heat, lifting to level 8/9. Rinse and shampoo with Fanola No Yellow Purple Shampoo and dry completely.

Step 2: Apply Pravana Vivids Blue to the roots.

Step 3: Hand paint from mids to ends with Pravana Pastels Blissful Blue.

Step 4: Process for 30 minutes and then rinse with cold water. Apply a sulfate free conditioner on the ends. Blow dry with a medium round brush and add loose curls with a Hot Tools curling iron.
