"This was her first time in my chair and this is the reason why I do what I do," says Rachael Monahan (@Rachael_Monahan) of Jyl Craven Hair Design, Canton, Georgia. "She came in full of energy and decided she needed a big change to find her herself a romance! She said 'Make it short, sexy, and all one color!' I said 'LET'S DO IT!'"

And so she did.

Here Monahan shares the details for the makeover:

Step 1: First cut about 10 inches.

Step 2: Apply  1/2 5.0- 1/2 4.8 L'Oréal Profressionnel Majirel "She had some gray and that is my go to for a chocolate brown."

Step 3: Pull throughout the ends ten minutes into the process to cover previous highlights. Process according to manufacturers instructions.

Step 4: Refine the cut and style.
