Colorist Shonda Broadus (@ShondaBroadus) has done it again and created a masterpiece before and after. Take a close look at the after shot and how she meshes together various hues of dark and light blues, icy white, and level 10 platinum highlights all on a level 1 black base. "My client came in with previously colored dark brown hair and wanted silver/black tones," she says. Here, she provides us with her how-to steps:


STEP 1: "I began by making a zigzag section on top of the head and lifted it a total of three times: once with 10 volume, once with 20 volume and once with 30 volume. For each lift, I processed the hair for about 20 minutes each. I wanted to make sure that she got to a safe level 10."

STEP 2:  "After blow drying that section, I pinned it up, and applied the black underneath. Then, I proceeded to apply my different tones of silver on top. Once the vivids were done (20 min process,) I proceeded to shampoo, condition cut and style using Pravana Replenishing oil.

From Foiled and Damaged To Luscious Red

"This client had been doing full foils for years, and her hair showed it," says Tiffinie Morton (@hairbytiffinie). "We had been working on getting her hair healthier and decided to try something new. She initially wanted to go to a warm level 5 but I talked her into trying this to ease her into being darker since she had been blonde for so long." Details here.
