DIY Red To Pro Emerald

Kayla Valerio (@hairbykaylavalerio) of Claudia Curl Salon, Providence, Rhode Island, tackled this stubborn red to bring this client to her desired green.

"She had been coloring her hair red herself for about 2 1/2 years," says Valerio, "She told me she wanted to be emerald green with a darker root. I did not think this was possible in one sitting, but managed to make it happen."

Here she shares the HOW TO:

STEP I: Balayage/ombre using J Beverly Hills lightener starting with 20 volume in the back then 40 in the front. Process for about an hour, half of that time under heat. Lift to yellow/orange.

STEP 2: To the root apply a level 5 Pravana green.

STEP 3: To the ends apply J Beverly Hills Emerald. Process for 30 minutes.
