How To: Mousy Brown to Bold Brunette WITH Green Accent Pieces

By Alison Alhamed | 07/13/2013 10:17:00 AM


MODERN Facebook fan Drew Noreen, a stylist at Arizona's Pucci Salon, created this fun finish on his client Jen. Whenever MODERN features Drew's work, it goes VIRAL--his easy-to-digest how tos and beautiful finishing make his process fun to follow.

Here's how this before and after was created:

"For the mint extension pieces, I started on level 10 and applied equal parts Wella /33 + /28 + /00 to 5 parts (or more) of Pastel developer," he says. Drew colored them twice.

"Her hair cut was inspired by a cut I saw Australian educator Tracy Hughes do at a class in Milwaukee," he says.



Color Inspired by Rachel From "Friends"

COLOR CORRECTION: Dark Brown to Blonde
