Liz Cordis (@Liz.Colors) of Salon Blonde, Davis CA says "This fun purple balayage transformation was on a new client, just 9 years old. Her before photo was an at home attempt at a purple ombré/balayage."

Here Cordis shares how she corrected, using the pro-touch:

Step 1: Balayage using Schwarzkopf Blondme with Brazilian Bond Builder added in 7vol/moving to 20vol for the front (+using foil to lift as much as possible). Rinse each section after processing. Shampoo and dry the hair.

Step 2: Prepare the purple shades, using four different Pulp Riot colors with Brazilian bond builder added into each one. 

Formula #1- 3pts velvet, 1pt jam, a few drops of nightfall

Formula #2- 3pts jam, 1pt cupid, a few drops of velvet

Formula #3- lilac w/ a few drops of velvet

Formula #4- blush w/ a few drops of jam 

Step 3: Apply formulas using formula #1 mainly on the roots through mids. Formula #2 is applied from the mids + the ends, while alternating painting the ends with formulas 2, 3 and 4 to create as much dimension as possible.

Step 4: Process for 30 minutes. Rinse well with cold water, condition, then style.

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.
