My client came to me with multi-colored hair done partially in a salon and partially at home,” Brittany Hayton (@Brittanyeleanor) of the Brittany Eleanor Studio, Woodland, New Jersey, says. “In our consultation, she expressed that her ideal end result would be an icy blonde. Understanding it wouldn’t happen in one session - and patience would be key - we agreed to embark on this journey together, Within two sessions we had her at her HAIR GOALS!"
