Sungei Vo-Peters ( loves "learning about new techniques, and exploring new product lines," she says. "Hairdressing to me, is one of the most difficult careers because we apply math equations, chemistry, and art while being therapists, improv artists, and magicians while standing for 12-14 hours a day.  But it's also the most rewarding to know you have touched someone's heart through your hands. My goal as a hairdresser, is to NEVER stop learning and NEVER be static."


MODERN found this transformation on her instagram page and asked for more. Here she shares the details:

"This client was desperate for a change. She wanted short and blonde. So first thing I did was cut her into a pixie. Breaking up any blunt lines with point cutting and slicing was important to keeping the whole look shattered." For color:




1) Redken UpTo7 lightener with 20 vol

2) Lanza Cream decolorizer with 25 vol and 1/8 olaplex

3) Lanza Cream decolorizer with 35 vol and 1/8 olaplex

4) Schwarzkopf Igora Royal 6-1 with 20 vol

5) Redken Shades EQ 8g 09t, 8g 09v, 16g Clear and 32 g processing solution



Step 1: Pre-lighten hair to remove most of her stubborn red/copper.


Step 2: Starting one inch off scalp, saturate with formula 1 down to the mids and ends.


Step 3: Process for 15 minutes and then add formula 1 to the root area.


Step 4: Process for antoher 15 minutes, lifting to level 8. Rinse and dry the hair.


Step 5: Micro foil vertical sections on both sides and  horizontal sections on top starting at hairline. Use formula 2 on sides and formula 3 on top section, applying top section last.


Step 6:  Apply formula 4 on ALL remaining hair, carefully in between foils and all around hairline. Process for 20 minutes.
