Amy Malarchik (@askforamy) of Versatile Strands Salon, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, has been referred to as the “Transformation Queen.” A member of the MoroccanoilPRO influencer group – the MOTROOP – has a lovely page filled with amazing makeovers and finishes.


This color conversion is particularly inspiring. Noting that she is the ideal client to get the brightest blonde, Malarchik says she has "a base color that just lifts to the perfect pale yellow where the toner can do everything I want it to. So satisfying!”

Here Malarchik shares the details for the upgrade:

STEP 1: In foils with a balayage tip-out, lift using Redken Flash Lift (with PH Bonder added), working from 20 – 30 volume as you approach the top.

STEP 2: Tone using Redken Shades EQ 9v/9t/9g/Clear.

STEP 3: Style using Moroccanoil Smoothing Lotion and Mending Infusion. Bend the mids with a BabylissPRO Nano Titanium 1 inch curling iron.
