Maggie Mulhern | January 20, 2017 | 8:14 AM

Ashley Nocera (@makeoversbyashleybrooke) of Aella Salon and Day Spa (@aellasalonandspa) of Meadville, Penn., had a fun challenge, bringing her faded fashion client back to life. Here she shares the how-to:

STEP 1: Pre-lighten to a level 10 using Redken Flash Lift lightening powder and 20 volume Pro Oxide Cream Developer.

STEP 2. At the bowl tone with Redken ShadesEQ Gloss 9T+Crystal Clear and Processing Solution. Shampoo and dry completely.

STEP 3: Create a "captivating blue" shade using Redken City Beats. At base apply Broadway Blue with a pinch of Indigo Skyline for a smoky royal blue. Using a freehand balayage technique, hand paint dimension throughout the rest of the hair using Broadway Blue, Brooklyn Blue, Indigo Skyline and Clear.

CONVERSION: From Warm to Cool

"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.
