Yesenia Leks (@LXHairStudio), owner of LX Hair Studio, Houston Heights, Texas, shares the behind the scenes story of this dramatic makeover by artist Rossy V:
"When our new client walked in, we were all greeted with a mess. When we inquired about what happen, she told us that the hair was virgin except for the ends, and that a friend attempted to retouch her grown out ombre at home. As you can imagine (and see) the results were..." The before shot speaks a thousands words. "We were all horrified, but we comforted our new client and began work to restore her hair."
STEP 1: To the base, apply Paul Mitchell The Color 7PN + 20 volume developer. From mid-shaft down, ("to control the different tones") apply 7PN + 10 volume developer ("with extra care to not touch the ends blond pieces").
STEP 2: Process for 25 minutes, maintaining visual inspections to ensure everything was progressing correctly.
STEP 3: Balayage the blonde ends, alternating two formulas: 9P + 10 volume developer, and 6N + 10 volume developer. Process for 10 minutes. Rinse and shampoo.
"The results were outstanding. Not only did we save the hair, we've made a friend for life," says Leks.
