MAKEOVER: Faded and Drab to Powerful Melt

Maggie Mulhern | June 17, 2017 | 11:21 AM

"This new client came to me with grown out roots about level 2 Asian hair with random pieces of level 8 lowlights," says Khloe Nguyen (@glamdoll1) of Orange County, California. "She previously had grey hair and hadn't had her hair done for a little over a year. Her goal was to become white silver grey."

Nguyen shares the details for this 6 hour makeover:

Step 1: Foilage/balayage using Wella Blondor with 30 volume on the new growth only.

Step 2: Pick out the lowlights and feather with 20 volume and Olaplex.  Move to 35 volume and 40 volume as you approach the front.

Step 3: Process for 30 minutes and then go back in with Blondor and 20 volume (with Olaplex) on the blonde hair. Lift to level 9/10 and rinse.

Step 4: Apply Olaplex step 2 for 15 minutes, then pre-tone with No Yellow shampoo for 10 minutes.  

Step 5: Tone using all Fanola:
Formula A to the roots: 50g 8.11 and 15Argento +3.5 vol
Formula B to the mids and ends: 30g 10.1 +20g 11.2 +15g argento + 3.5 vol

Step 6: Process for 20 minutes and then rinse and style with Kenra styling products.

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.
