Gentle Update for the Long-Haired Client

Maggie Mulhern | April 13, 2017 | 7:57 AM

Ally Feezel (@hairbyallyfeezel), Senior Stylist and Director of Education at Blonde Faith Salon in Austin, Texas, says her client "came in with unwanted warmth, and didn't feel blonde enough with her current color. She had uneven chunks of dark, old lowlights and a lot of her natural color and requested a brighter blonde."

Here she shares the how-to for this beautiful, but gentle, transformation:

Step 1: Full Highlight with Wella Blondor and 20 volume developer. "I took heavier than normal weaves, and pulled the 20 all the way through to the ends on some pieces."

Step 2: After the full highlight was applied, return to every strand of blonde that was left out of a foil and balayage with Blondor and 20 volume to brighten even more of the ends.

Step 3: Process for about 20-30 minutes under heat. Rinse.

Step 4: Glaze at the root (about 1- 2 inches down) with Wella Koleston 9/01 for 10 minutes. Do not rinse.

Step 5: Then apply 10/01 on the ends for an additional five minutes.

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.
