Nikki O'Connor (@hairbynikkio) of Studio B Hair Colourists, Cronulla, Sydney says this client waited 5 years before getting hair color."The hair was completely natural never been touched before and in extremely good condition."

Here O'Connor shares the details for this lovely makeover:

Step 1: Place micro lights throughout the hair. Start in the back with powder lightener (Wella Blondor) and 10 volume developer (bumped up to 20 volume on the crown area).

Step 2: Process each section for 30 minutes.

Step 3: Using Lakme, tone the roots with 1/2 6 + 1/2 7 and 5 grams of silver with gloss (semi developer) and then 1/2 10 +10/22 and gloss on the mids+ends. 

Step 4: Apply an Olaplex treatment at the basin.

CONVERSION: From Warm to Cool

Maggie Mulhern | April 17, 2017

"This client came in with very brassy, yellow and orange tones throughout her hair," says Austin Senior. "She was all levels 8 and 9 with about 5 inches of her natural level 7 regrowth. Her goal was a very cool platinum blonde with no silver and a shadow root slightly darker/cooler than her natural level." Here Senior shares the details for this makeover.
