Ready For A Change: Grown Out Sombre To Dimensional Raspberry

Kasey Rials makeover.

Kasey Rials (@kasey.hair) from House of Color Hair Studio, Colorado Springs, Colorado, says:

"After 8 months of being blonde and a couple years of growing her hair out, my client decided she wanted a change. She has a busy schedule and being blonde was just too much maintenance for her, always leaving her grown out and yellow. She didn't have any inspiration pictures of either a cut or color, so we brainstormed and decided to go with a blunt 'lob' just about collarbone length–which works great for her fine, super straight hair."

Color was another story. "I recommended a deep red. Her skin is fair and her eyes are very blue, so I thought it would look stunning! Given the fact that she was used to being blonde, I never thought she would go for it, but she agreed!"

Rials decided to go with a more natural root to keep it a little less noticeable when her roots grow in, since she wasn't always able to make it in for touch ups. 

Here Rials shares the how-to for the new shade:

Step 1: To the base apply Kenra - 5N and 4RB (equal parts) + 10 volume.

Step 2: Melt that shade into 5VR and 6RR (mixed equal parts) + 10 volume.

Step 3: Process for 35 minutes and rinse.

"She looked like a completely different woman walking out of the salon!"

My main goal was to get her to her desired color, while still maintaining the integrity of her hair. Patience is the key in achieving this!" How to here.
