“Hey, I think I want normal hair again,” was the conversation between Hannah Peterson (@hannahnoelhair) and her flaming fuchsia colored guest. Peterson, a Level 1 stylist at Gina Bianca Hair in Southington, CT, started to nervously smile and shake her head while starting to go through the motions in her mind.
This is impossible, she thought, how am i supposed to pull this off and get as light as she wants? With a little faith and some love from her GBH team, Peterson was able to transform this beauty from a fantasy colored unicorn to a seamless, melty ombre.
Note that the glaze is key and deserves special attention. "Start by saturating the hairline," says Peterson. "Bring the glaze all over the roots, emulsify and slowly work the glaze down the mid-shaft to ends. It is important in a color melt to rinse the mid shaft to ends as soon as you see them start to change color. The key is to create a seamless, melted look, transitioning from level to level. Let the glaze on the base melt down into the rest of the hair. After about 7 minutes, my guest was ready to rinse. Since her hair was so porous, her hair soaked up the color very fast. I applied Olaplex #2 all over and let it sit for about 10 minutes. This helps rebuild the broken down disulfide bonds in her hair. "
