Maggie Mulhern | February 3, 2015 | 5:13 AM

Lily Duong (@hairbylily408) from Hair by Lily at Salons by JC, San Jose, California, has been quite patient with client Maya. "She went to her hairdresser that cuts her hair and asked for an ombré," sats Duong. "She came out with a dip dyed job that was red on top and orange on the bottom with a huge line of demarcation. She contacted me out of desperation and waited for an appointment to get in."

The correction took 4 sessions. Here Duong offers the HOW TO:

1st session: Base smudge and Toner. "I went in and darkened her root and smudged it past the line of demarcation. The hair was then toned."

Formula 1: All Nutrient 5C+ 4CS+ 10 vol
Formula 2: (mid-ends) All Nutrient 7C+ 6cs  + Color Processing Solution 

Session 2 (8 weeks later): Balayage highlights
Formula 1: Redken FlashLIft + 40vol 
Formula 2: Toner- All Nutrient 8c+ CPL

Session 3 (3 months after that): American tailoring (foil and Balayage combo)
Foil the hair and balayage the remaining ends.
Formula 1- Redken FlashLIft 30 vol + Olaplex in foils 
Formula 2: Redken FlashLIft + 50 vol + Olaplex (Balayage) 
Formula 3: toner - All Nutrient 9c + 10 vol
