“This was my clients first time in my chair,” Andreana Nunez (@Dreeanaloveee), Agence Salon, San Dimas, CA., says. “She was ready for a change and believed I could make her hair dreams come true. She drove over an hour to see me and put all trust in my hands - no pressure! I had told her this session that I was going to take it slow and feel out her hair since it was my first time working on it. She was a natural level 6 on top and a level 8 on her ends.” According to Nunez, she lifted “BEAUTIFULLY! The end result was a beautiful healthy rooted icy blonde. She left more than satisfied and feeling brand new. There is no better feeling - when you make your client feel so beautiful that she starts taking selfies in your chair.”
