Crystal Casey (@crystalchaos), owner of High Voltage Hair, Virginia Beach, Virginia, had a wonderful opportunity. "This first time client had always wanted to be a red head. She was new to the area and couldn't find a stylist that she really liked or trusted to give her that amazing red makeover. She was driving all the way to New Jersey from Virginia to get her hair done by her regular colorist. Then one day she stumbled across my Facebook page and called to make her appointment. The rest is history!"

Here Casey shares how she made the dream color to keep her local:

Step 1: Fill in previous highlights using Paul Mitchell Shines XG: 8C with 5 volume. Process for 25 minutes and then shampoo and dry the hair.

Step 2: To create a deep vibrant base color, apply Joico's XR series: 7XR & 5XR with 5 volume on the previously highlighted areas and 20 volume on the regrowth area.

Step 3: While processing, blend Joico Vero Lights in Red with 20 volume. Alternate slices and weaves (in foil)  in an "X" pattern across the top of the head right over the base color.

Step 4: Process for 30 minutes. Rinse and shampoo.
