Frances Canola (@frances_hairartist) is in the process of opening Bauhaus Salon in Orange, CA (opening Jan 2, 2017). MODERN found this lovely makeover and asked Canola for the details:

"My client colors her hair once a year so to keep her color low maintenance I decided to create a shadow root blonde. She tends to pull very warm so my goal was to have a more neutral blonde result."

Step 1: Foil highlight, using a babylight technique, using Kenra Ammonia Free lightener with 20 volume developer and Olaplex.

Step 2: While processing, paint the prelightened ends with the same lightener with 9 volume developer and Olaplex. 

Step 3: Process for 40 minutes. Rinse.

Step 4: Create a root shadow with Kenra 6A demi perm. Process for 5 minutes.

Step 5: Melt into 10SM from mid shaft to ends. Process for an addition one minute to give her a silvery blonde effect.

She wanted to transition back to brunette while still leaving dimension and no warmth.” Here Urban shares the details for this makeover, using all L’Oréal Professionnel color:

MAKEOVER: Three Sessions Of Beauty

Jenn Malone (@jmalonehair) at Agence Salon, San Dimas, California, says her client "had 85% virgin hair. Her goal is to be a 'rooty' platinum blonde while still keeping the 'lived in' look. 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.
