CORRECTION: Grown Out, Faded and Damaged To Ice White

Maggie Mulhern | February 8, 2017 | 1:15 PM

Vanessa Castro (@extraglossy_) from NYC says she is "obsessed with doing hair - especially color corrections. I love that they challenge me to think and always try new things."

Here she had an opportunity to meet a challenge head on in a correction that took 6 1/2 hours:

Step 1: Apply Wella Blondor with 30 volume and Olaplex to her regrowth, staying 1/4 of an inch away from scalp. Lift to level 8.

Step 2: Apply more of that same formula to the remaining yellow blonde area. Process for another 10 minutes and then apply the same formula to the root/scalp area.

Step 3: Apply the same bleach with 13 volume to the rest of the band. Lift until all the hair is even. Rinse and towel dry.

Step 4: Re-apply the same bleach with 30 volume and Olaplex, watching to the middle section and then roots then ends. Lift to desired level and until even. Rinse and apply Olaplex #2 for 20 minutes. Shampoo and towel dry.

Step 5: Gloss from roots to ends using Wella Color Touch equal parts 10/6 10/81 and 10/0 with Gentle 6 volume developer. Process for 10-12 minutes. Rinse and condition with Wella Blondor Seal and Care for 4 minutes.

Step 6: Cut and gently layer the hair. Style with a Hot Tools 1" curling iron.

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.
