Hot Off the Tresses: Hair Color Correction of the Day

Brittany Kryceski from Jensen Beach, FL managed this home hair color situation over nearly seven hours.  The result is, of course, completely worth the time. 

"This was a 6 1/2 hour color correction," she explains. "Box dye was used at home."  Say no more.


  • A full head of heavy balayage/foilayage using Pulp Riot Clay Lightener and 20 volume.


  • A full head of highlights babylights and lowlights (7n) to help blend the line of demarcation.
  • Root melted and toned with Redken Shades Eq 6n to 9n.


  • A six-inch chop. "The client had super thick, tailbone length hair."


  •  $100 a hour.
