There are few things a colorist enjoys more than truly transforming a client from drab to fab. Making your client feel like a new person through using your own skills, creativity, talent and imagination can feel very powerful--and rewarding.
MODERN Facebook fan Carly Seaton, a stylist at Salon Elle in La Jolla, California, knows the transforming power she has as a colorist, and loves using L'Oreal Professionnel color to wow her clients.
In these three real-client images, Seaton shows off her mixing magic--AND the formulas she used to create these gorgeous results! "My inspiration for each of these was fall!" she says. "I love making drab color rich when a new season comes around."
"My client in this photo was a natural Level 5, who had 100-percent virgin hair," she says. "So we created an all-over 6.1 and 7.1 L'Oreal Professionnel Majirel with 20-volume developer, and added some highlights using 10-volume L'oreal Professionnel Platinium. Her hair is thick and naturally long and gorgeous!"
"This client of mine is a natural Level 5-6. We used L'Oreal Professionnel Platinium with 30-volume developer, and then toned her hair with L'Oreal Professionnel Richesse P10 and P02."
