Amy Koepke (@amy_amaryllis) of Salon Amaryllis, Lincoln, NE., says her new client came in "hating where her hair was at. It was way warmer  and darker than she wanted and there were a couple of different bands throughout. Our goal was to get her in a cooler lighter place with the time we had while maintaining the integrity of her hair. We also wanted to create a more even palette for going blonder at next session."
