"This was a sad day for us," say Toni Rose Larson (@colordollzbytoni), owner of Hairitage Salon, Carlsbad, Cal.  Larson was speaking not just for herself but for client Deborah, and adds "We both loved this color as did so many others!!!" Larson and client had to go from the Green/Blue Color Melt, which had been featured EVERYWHERE, including on MODERN to something more "normal" but still beautiful. "We had to change color due to a career change," says Larson. "Prior to her job offer I was going to decolorize and do a pink and purple color melt. That is one of the reasons we were so sad! I was looking forward to giving her unicorn hair again, especially because I'm a member if the 'unicorntribe'. Do you know it? It's a new movement for 2015. My unicorntribe name is Uni-baby!"


Although sad to do it, Larson DID a beautiful job making Deborah's color "normal", stating this was NOT easy. "I must say it takes a lot of time and patience in removing/ decolorizing Pravana Vivids. We are very pleased with the outcome."
