Cathy Tran (@prostylistcathyt) of Corona, California, shares the details for this color correction going from mis-matched brass to frosty blonde.

Step 1: Section hair into 4 star sections, working from the bottom up. Using balayage technique with foils, apply Redken Flash Lift with 20 volume (turning it into 10 volume with Olaplex.)

Step 2: Process stained areas first from previous line of demarcation. Once lifted to a level 9, pull through the ends for another 15 to 25 minutes but airing out the pre-lifted hair so that it stops processing. 

Step 3: Rinse thoroughly and apply Olaplex number 2 for 30 minutes. 

Step 4: Rinse thoroughly then shampoo and condition with Joico Kpak Color Therapy Shampoo and conditioner (leaving conditioner in for 10 minutes.) 

Step 5: To the roots apply Fanola 6.11 8.14 equal parts with 20 volume.

Step 6: Tone with Wella Color Charm T11, T35 full bottles with cool shades 20 volume, adding Olaplex also into the toner and adding 12a and 10a as an additive ("meaning just 1/4 of 12a and 10a with no developer".) 

Step 7: Process toner for 20 minutes. Rinse and apply Olaplex number 2 for 30 minutes.

Step 8: Rinse and shampoo with Joico Kpak color therapy shampoo and conditioner;) Rinse, cut and style.
