Megan Rafidi (@meganrafidi), owner of The Megan Rafidi Studio, Cornelius, NC, says: "This client is actually a long time friend and coworker. She started out as my assistant and grew enough to become her own suite owner where I own my studio. She has baby fine hair and has always loved to be blonde blonde blonde!"
"After a few months of doing Lisa Hart-Walkers 'Wet on Wet' color melt, she was ready for a change. I had been showing her platinum blondes that I wanted to try on her for months. Finally, she was ready. She had about two inches of level 6 new growth and old, washed out highlights."

STEP 6: Apply Joico intensity Light Pink to the root and melt down into half Light Pink half Clear to get a seamless blend. Process 20 minutes under the dryer and let cool for 10 minutes.

A week after doing the Platinum and Pink, we decided to go for Metallics.
