"My client has the most beautiful hair! I love her natural texture," says Larisa Love (@larisadoll), a freelance artist working out of the Ubungalows at the Butterfly Lofts in LA. "However, sometimes it's fun to mix it up."

Here Love, who points out that she uses straight color deposit without developer (steps 3 and 5), offers the HOW TO for this blue to gray to silver colormelt:

Step 1: Balayage using Schwarzkopf BlondeMe Lightener (blended with Olaplex) up to the root leaving a baby root for low maintenance.

Step 2: Lift to level 9. Shampoo.

Step 3: Tone at the bowl with  Pravana Silver Gray.

Step 4: Process for 15 minutes and then shampoo from the hair.

Step 5: Add a blue root at the sink bowl using Pravana  Blue, slowly fading it to her ends.

Step 6: Process for 25 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.

Step 7: Finish with Redken Shades EQ Clear Gloss by shades EQ.

Step 8: After a trim and reshape, give a full "all in" with your upper muscle sleek blowout. NO FLAT IRON USED!!
