Nikki O'Connor (@hairbynikkio) of Studio B Hair Colourists, Cronulla, Sydney says this client waited 5 years before getting hair color."The hair was completely natural never been touched before and in extremely good condition."

Here O'Connor shares the details for this lovely makeover:

Step 1: Place micro lights throughout the hair. Start in the back with powder lightener (Wella Blondor) and 10 volume developer (bumped up to 20 volume on the crown area).

Step 2: Process each section for 30 minutes.

Step 3: Using Lakme, tone the roots with 1/2 6 + 1/2 7 and 5 grams of silver with gloss (semi developer) and then 1/2 10 +10/22 and gloss on the mids+ends. 

Step 4: Apply an Olaplex treatment at the basin.

From Foiled and Damaged To Luscious Red

"This client had been doing full foils for years, and her hair showed it," says Tiffinie Morton (@hairbytiffinie). "We had been working on getting her hair healthier and decided to try something new. She initially wanted to go to a warm level 5 but I talked her into trying this to ease her into being darker since she had been blonde for so long." Details here.
