Kimemily Pham (@kimwasabi), a master stylist and owner of Excellent Hair Salon & Spa Inc. located in Fremont CA. says "It was almost a year since I last saw my client. I had previously lightened her hair from virgin hair. She had about 5 inches of new growth of a level 3. My goal was to lift her base and refresh her ends to at least a level 9, light blonde."

Here she shares the details for this beautiful transformation:

-Flat foil new growth hair starting at the nape first with Kenra Lightener with 40 volume + Olaplex

-Work toward the crown. Process at room temperature for 50 minutes. Remove all the foils but do not rinse.

-Mix a fresh batch of Kenra no ammonia lightener, 30 volume + Olaplex.

-Apply to the scalp, midshafts and ends. Cover with a plastic cap. Process at room temperature for 20 minutes.

-Rinse well, treat with Olaplex #2 for 15 minutes. Shampoo and dry hair completely.

-Apply Kenra Guy Tang's favorites metallic 8sm 2oz+ 2 inches of blue booster + 4oz 9 volume to zone 1.

-Color melt zone 1 & 2 together with 10sm 2oz + 1inch blue booster + 1 inch violet booster + 4 oz 9 volume.

-Take Guy Tang's Diamonds in the Sky technique, alternate Kenra Color Creatives in Teal, Violet, Pink and Yellow mixed with Olaplex #2  (1:2 ratio) throughout zone 2, concentrated and saturated at zone 3. 

-Process at room temperature for 30 minutes.

-Rinse, shampoo, condition and style.
