This client had box color that had to be lifted before Edwin (@hairbyedwin), a colorist at Kut Haus Claremont, could create this melting 'made you look' pinky-lilac shade. Claremont used Schwarzkopf Professional color to create this look!


Started at a level 4/5. "I had previously lightened her to lift out her box color. She came in three months later and she wanted to go as light as she could."


  1. Started in the front doing bayalage and micro-light technique, back to back, using 1/2" partings.
  2. Used Blonde Me by Schwarzkopf 30 volume for the bayalage and 20 volume for the microlight. Worked with foil for separation.
  3. She lifted to a level 8/9
  4. Pre-toned using 8-11 in Igora with 10 volume.
  5. Processed for 15 minutes.
  6. Rinsed, towel-dried, and separated into five quadrants: two front sections, the two back sections and a Mohawk section at the top of the head.
  7. Using a bayalage technique, toned her pink with Pearl Essence 9,5-89 with 10 volume.
  8. Processed for 15 minutes and rinsed.

From Foiled and Damaged To Luscious Red

Maggie Mulhern | October 1, 2017

"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.

"This was her first time in my chair," says Rachael Monahan (@Rachael_Monahan) of Jyl Craven Hair Design, Canton, Georgia. "She decided she needed a big change to find her herself a romance! She said 'Make it short, sexy, and all one color!' I said 'LET'S DO IT!'" Details for the makeover here.
