"This Firecracker came to me with what was once a blue to violet ombre," says Dessiree Oberhaus (@dessiree_xg). "It faded back to blonde and teal." We loved this transformation and tracked down Oberhaus to get more details. Here she shares:

Step 1: Apply Paul Mitchell Dual Purpose Lightener and 10 Vol (Natural level 7) at the base.

Step 2: Color Balance the teal and feather to the ends where necessary with 1:1:1 SynchroLift:10Vol:ShampooOne.

Step 3: Rinse and condition with Super Strengthener Treatment. Then apply 6R PM Shines for about 5-6 minutes. "This gives a nice base for the red, and allows for better fading."

Step 4: Apply from scalp to ends: Pravana Vivids with a ratio of 2:1 I mixed Red(4oz) and Orange(2oz).  "I also laid a shadow box and a couple foils around the front (horizontal diagonal back) using Pravana Vivids Wild Orchid, Red 1:1 and added just a pinch of Blue. Literally only a little drop for depth."

There were MANY highlights from the 2019 MODERN Artist Connective Artist Session photo shoot held recently at the Eva Scrivo Salon in NYC, but one that caused a lot of buzz was the creation of the decorative florets created by Haley Garber (@beautybyhaleygarber).  Garber spent hours creating dozens of the florets that were eventually placed in the hair to accent the three final looks by Garber and her hair partner Stephanie Hodges (@stephstyles) who created the beautiful and dimensional color.

Eric Jeter rented a salon studio for two and a half years until he realized he missed the camaraderie of other stylists. Lauren Correll joined a JCPenney Salon right out of cosmetology school, and now, as a salon manager, brings her enthusiasm for the company and the profession to her team. Both agree they wouldn’t change the unique combination of independence, teamwork, opportunity and family spirit the company offers for anything.
