Presley Poe, (@PresleyPoe) Artistic Educator, Brand Specialist and Platform Artist for Pravana based at The Parlour, NE Portland, OR,  says her model arrived with primarily virgin hair at a level 5 with a lot of natural red in her hair and had a bit of previous lightening towards the mid-shaft and ends. 

Here Poe shares the details for this transformation:

Step 1: Balayage with 3/4 Pure Light Balayage Lightener to 1/4th Pure Light Powder Lightner: 2  parts High Activator.

Step 2: Process at room temperature for 55 minutes, lifting to level 8G.  Shampoo and condition with Pravana Moisture Rich Shampoo and Conditioner.

Step 3: Apply base formulation of Pravana Demi-Gloss Color Lush 15grms 6G. 15grms 7c:10grms 5rc

Step 4: Apply midshaft formulation using Pravana Demi-Gloss Color Lush 6G 15grms: 9g 15grms: 7C 10grms: 5grms gold additive

Step 5: Process for 20 minutes at room temperature.

"To create a softer brighter effect  around the face I utilized the midshaft formulation an inch arched section in front of each ear. To create depth I made half moon sections behind the ear connecting at a 2 inch subsection at the nape saturating with base formula. Controlling her underlying pigment helped to achieve a rich and dense Spiced Pumpkin Copper with guaranteed color longevity."
