Linh Phan (@bescene) is the owner of the boutique Be Scene Studios, located in Rockville, Maryland. MODERN is one of the 11K following Phan on instagram to see some of his exciting transformations. We loved this beautiful makeover and asked for the HOW TO:
Step 1: Using Wella Color Touch 4/71,4/0 1:1 and a ribbon of 0/68 to knock out the brass. Mixing the color with the 4% Color Touch developer 1:2. Cover from roots to end and process for 30 minutes at room temperature.
Step 2: Shampoo and dry the hair. Then isolate a horseshoe section down to the bottom of the crown.
Step 3: Work below the isolated section. Take 1/2 inch diagonal back sections and free hand balayage highlights using Schwarzkopf Blond Me blended with 7 volume in alternating sections.
Step 4: Once completed, start working on the upper sections using the same technique with a new bowl of lightener. Processe until the highlights lift to a level 7. Shampoo and towel dry.
Step 5: Tone with Wella Color Touch 6/71,7/1 1:1 and a ribbon of 0/68. Mix with 1.9% Color Touch developer 1:2. Applied all over the highlights. Process for 15 minutes.
Step 6: after the final color is achieved, shampoo and blow dry. Using a 1.5inch curling iron follow the same pattern used for balayage and curl away from the face. Finish with Kenra Flexible hold hair spray.
