DESIRED: Going Back To Dark

Jordan Rivera (@jordannnriveraa) a level 1 stylist at Haus of Heir, Davenport, Iowa, wowed us with this transformation. We had to know more. Rivera shares:

Hair Backstory: When my client came to be she had explained she was a level 10 when she beginning the process of going “red”. Her original desire was to be a deep burgundy, but due to the porosity and condition of her hair, the color was not achieved. During her consultation to “go back dark” I explained to her that we could fill and neutralize her hair to eliminate the red but still maintain warmth. We chose a neutral base (formula below) knowing that we would reach our goal of a red-violet tone. I consulted with her that we would need to reconstruct her hair using Kerastase treatments, and remove her compromised ends. She was very uncomfortable with the fact that she had to loose length so I recommended Hotheads Hair Extensions. We color matched her new base and added a lighter contrast for dimension.

Formula: Chronologist Masque from Kerastase. Fill: 7/73 & 1.9%. Base through ends: 4/0 & /28 concentrate (30g color : 6g concentrate) 10vol Koleston Perfect . Hotheads Extensions colors #3 & #7 14”-16” Bodywave
Styled with Oribe: Balm D’or, Dry Texturizing Spray, Superfine Strong
GHD Classic Curl Iron

Timing: Color and Cut process = 2.5 hours / Extensions = 1 hours / Treatment for 45 minutes
