Alisha Jared (@alishajaredhairartistry) from Siren Salon in Vancouver, WA, had fun with a challenge. "This client came to me as a birthday present from her mom.  Her inspiration picture was fire engine red, but she had fairly recently box colored her hair black! I was prepared to deal with uneven lift and banding, however, in being cautious, I was able to get her to lift exceptionally well. Wherever I applied my lightener, I was able to achieve EXACTLY what I was looking for." In addition to great results, Jared has gained (and EARNED) a client for life. This transformation took place all in one day, in 2 sessions. Total time: 4.5 hours.

1st Process:

Step 1:  Section hair into 4 standard sections.  Starting at nape, take 1/2" sections, apply Formula A: Wella Blondor + 20 Vol Veroxide (1:1 ratio) from top of black banded color through the ends.  Continue working toward the front.

Mix new batch of Formula A.

Step 2:  Immediately return to nape section and bring lightener up to 1/4" from scalp.  Work in same order you did during first application.

Mix new batch of Formula A.

Step 3:  Immediately upon second application of lightener return to nape and apply lightener on scalp and re-saturate any hair that hasn't lifted adequately.  

Step 4: Process at room temperature until you reach your desired level of lightness (in this case a level 7/8 orange.) Rinse in cool water. Shampoo and condition using Pureology Strength Cure Shampoo and Conditioner.  

Step 5:  Apply Pureology Colour Fanatic to even out porosity and dry completely.

2nd Process:

Step 6: Section into 4 standard sections.  Apply Formula B: Joico Vero 53 g 7XR + 53 g 5XR+ 27 g INRR + 10 Vol Veroxide (1:1 ratio) from roots to ends.  Process at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Step 7:  Rinse with cool water.  Apply Joico Kpak Intense Hydrator and process for 5 minutes.  Rinse.  Apply Joico Kpak Cuticle Sealer and process for 5 minutes.  Rinse. Style with Pureology Colour Fanatic as a leave-in/protectant. Blow dry and finish with a 1" wand and Davines This is a Sea Salt Spray for texture.

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.
