MAKEOVER: Banded and Brassy To Stunning Blonde Melt

Maggie Mulhern | January 3, 2017 | 6:31 AM

Marianne Lohr (@mannie_mak), a freelance artist based in Bethlehem, PA, says "Transformations are an absolute favorite of mine! Giving my clients exactly what they ask for is a great feeling." For this new client, Lohr got that opportunity. "She came to me and asked me to get rid of her golden band and dead ends, and wanted a cooler toned rooted blonde."

Here Lohr shares how she achieved her new look:

Step 1: Shampoo and towel dry. Apply Wella Color Touch 4/71 & 5/0 with 1.9% from root to midshaft. Process for 25 minutes, rinse, shampoo and condition.

Step 2: Apply heavy balayage using Solaris Poudr 6 and 30 & 40 volume + Olaplex. Wrap in plastic wrap and process under the dryer for 20 minutes.

Step 3: Rinse with cool water and apply Olaplex No.2 for 10 minutes. Rinse, shampoo with Matrix So Silver and towel dry.

Step 4: Apply Wella Color Touch 9/01 with 1.9% for 20 minutes.

Step 5: Cut about 5 inches.

Step 6: Style with BabylissPro 1 inch curling iron.
