COLOR CORRECTION: Faded Red To Deep Chocolate

Erica Orsini (@erica_leighxo), an artist at Serene Full Service Salon in Miramar, FL, says "I couldn't ask for a better place to learn and grow." In this case, she had a chance to put that education to work: "My client came in with faded out red hair on the ends and about a half inch of new growth. She wanted to be a chocolate-y dark brown."

Here Orsini shares HOW she granted her wish:

Step 1: Apply Matrix So Color 5n with 20 volume on her base. Process for 15 minutes.

Step 2: While step 1 is processing, saturate the ends with Matrix Color Sync 2 Oz of 6n and 1 Oz of 6a with 10 volume developer.

Step 3: Process an additional 30 minutes (for a total processing time of 45 minutes.)

Step 4: After color, remove about 3 inches and add some long layers. Style with a Bio-Ionic Style Winder.
