click image to zoom We love a good color correction story! That's why when Toni Fountain, a stylist at Indulgence, The Salon of Lakewood, California, sent us this awesome before and after, we knew we had to share it with our readers (LOVE YOU!).

"As you can see from the top two pictures, my guest had all kinds of color and regrowth happening," Fountain says.

Here's how she fixed it using Redken color:

Base: 2 oz 35-volume Pro Oxide developer + 1.5 oz of Color Fusion 6Rv + .5 oz of 7R

Filler for Zones 2 and 3: 2 oz Shades EQ Processing Solution + 2 oz 06AA

Final Glaze: 2 oz 10-volume Pro Oxide developer + Shades EQ Creme .75 oz 7RR + .75 oz 5RR + .50 oz 6V
