Maggie Mulhern | December 11, 2014 | 9:52 AM

Miriam Ortega (@studio410artonhair), owner and hair artist of Studio 410 in Dallas, Texas, created this gorgeous multi-dimension purple blended color design. "Melissa was a dull, virgin brown," says Ortega. "We took her to a va-va-voom violeta purple, with hints of lavender tones throughout."

Here she offers the How-To:

Step 1: Section the hair into 4 sections.
 Step 2 : Tease the crown of her hair, two inches to the new growth.
 Step 3 : Apply Redken Flash Lift Lightener with 20 volume developer, foiling from the end of the teased hair, creating a separation ombré effect..
 Step 4 : Taking quarter of an inch sections, through her entire hair, foil with lightener to allow hair to lift with natural heat.
 Step 5 : Process for 10 minutes after the last foil is placed.
 Step  6. Th en place client under high heat, low air for  3-5 minutes.
Step 7: Rinse completely and then shampoo. Do not condition to keep hair cuticle open.
Step 8:. Blow dry and section in 4 sections.
Step 9: Apply  Ion  Color Brilliance Brights semi permanent hair color Purple directly on hair in 1/4 inch slices in foil, making sure hair is heavily saturated.
Step 10: Alternate with Ion Color Brilliance Brights semi permanent hair color Lavender. Apply directly on hair making sure the hair in foils is heavily saturated. Continue throughout the hair.
Step 11: Process for 20 - 30 minutes at room temperature.
Step 12: Light shampoo and Moroccanoil Deep Treatment. Rinse thoroughly. Style using Kenra Blow Dry Spray, and After Party.
