Hollie Jacques (@holliegivesgoodhair) of LUX Salon, Stockton, CA, says it had been 7 months since this client had been to the salon.

"She did not take care of her hair," says Jacques who teaches color and balayage with salon owner @Glamiris. "Upon consultation, we agreed to take off four inches to get rid of everything that was compromised. She wanted to go 'back to natural' but showed a picture of Kim Kardashian where the lighting gave the illusion of lighter tones in her signature dark hair. I formulated for a shade lighter than her natural base."

Here Jacques shares the how-to after the pre-cut: 

Step 1: Apply Pravana 1/4 5.31 (5GA), 1/4 5.3 (5G), 2/4 4N with Zero Lift Developer and Olaplex #1 to the pre-lightened areas. Process for 35 minutes.

Step 2: Rinse and apply Olaplex #2 for 10 minutes. Cleanse with R+Co Gemstone shampoo and conditioner. 

Step 3: Apply R+Co One Prep spray. Finish the haircut with long layers to model the cut in the photo. 

Step 4: Apply R+Co Jackpot and finish with a sleek blowout.
