Challenge Accepted! Red-Orange to Platinum Color Correction

Alison Alhamed | January 30, 2015 | 11:34 AM

MODERN Instagram follower Steven Hewitt shared this color correction with us and we knew we had to track down his step-by-step process for the dramatic transformation. Here, he shares:

Step 1: Alfaparf Color Remover was used to remove as much color as possible--getting the client to a light copper/pink. 

Step 2: Next, he used Alfaparf Supermeches and ammonia-free lightener with 6% on the full head--excluding the new growth--lifting it to a yellow/gold.

Step 3: After rinsing the lightener, a mixture of Alfapark Supermeche and ammonia-free lightener with 6% was again applied all-over--INCLUDING the new growth, this time--and lifted to a golden base level 8/9.

Step 4: Alfaparf Cauterisation Serum was left in the hair as a treatment, to restrengthen the hair and even out the porosity, and then rinsed after putting under heat and being allowed to dry in. Next, a toner of Alfaparf Evolution 9 and 8.21 with a 1-inch ribbon of 410 (graphite) with 3% was applied and processed until most of the warmth was removed.

Step 5: Hair was rinsed, another treatment added followed by a full head of slices using Alfaparf Supermeche+ Ammonia-free lightener with 3% until a pale blonde was achieved. Then foils were rinsed, hair was dried, a lisse Keratin treatment was put on the hair for 20 minutes to restrengthen, rinsed again and styled.

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.
