Since my client had done so much lightening herself at home, it was extremely important to protect the integrity of her hair. Olaplex has allowed me to lightened her again to achieve an even canvas.

After processing to desired lightness, I melted her with 3A PM Shines for 5 minutes. Melting with a toner consists of applying the product to towel dried hair, in the sink. Starting at the root, work your way down the mid shaft, lightly rinsing with water to let the root ‘melt’ and tone the rest of the canvas. After rinsing, I applied Olaplex #2 to help rebuild the broken bonds in her hair. Then we shampooed using Paul Mitchell Forever Blonde Platinum, and conditioned with Paul Mitchell Forever Blonde Conditioner.

Hannah Peterson  (@hannahnoelhair) of Gina Bianca Hair (@ginabiancahair), Southington, Connecticut, says "I have seen clients attempt to color or ‘fix’ their own hair, but I have never come across something like this! I understand the sense of urgency and fun when it comes to changing your hair color. I do it myself! But when urgency turns into an emergency, it’s time to rethink your DIY idea."

Here she shares the details for this lovely makeover:

There were MANY highlights from the 2019 MODERN Artist Connective Artist Session photo shoot held recently at the Eva Scrivo Salon in NYC, but one that caused a lot of buzz was the creation of the decorative florets created by Haley Garber (@beautybyhaleygarber).  Garber spent hours creating dozens of the florets that were eventually placed in the hair to accent the three final looks by Garber and her hair partner Stephanie Hodges (@stephstyles) who created the beautiful and dimensional color.

Both agree they wouldn’t change the unique combination of independence, teamwork, opportunity and family spirit the company offers for anything.
