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.
