Amie Miller, owner of Amarie's Hair Studio, Chicago, was eager to transform her first time client to her desired "Khaleesi" (Game Of Thrones) blonde.

"She had been trying elsewhere but was never successful," says Miller. "Her hair was dry to start so we definitely olaplexed!" Here Miller offers how she reached their goal, with great success.

Step 1: Begin at the regroth. Apply Redken Flashlift and 35 volume with 1/4oz of Olaplex (Miller also added 2 packets of Sweet and Low to the lightener to avoid scalp irritation)

Step 2: Leave out the next inch and a half ("as it was already a golden level 9.")

Step 3: From that point to ends apply Flashlift and 25 volume and 1/4oz olaplex. Work from the bottom up.

Step 4: Process for 30 minutes at room temperature.

Step 5: Emulsify the lightner and two pumps of conditioner through all the hair covering the section that was left out.

Step 6: Rinse leaving out the last 2 inches of her ends ("They were super blonde.") Process for 10 more minutes. 

Step 7: Rinse and tone with Redken Shades  EQ 1 1/4oz 9v & 1/4oz 9t & processing solution. Process for a few minutes until the hair turns a very light purple/silver shade.

Step 8: Rinse and apply the 2nd step of Olaplex Bonder for 10 minutes.

Step 9: Rinse and then shampoo and condition with Pureology Hydrate.

Step 10: Blow out with Uniq One hair treatment.
