Deep Brown to Bright Orange! Lovely!

Maggie Mulhern | June 17, 2017 | 11:43 AM

"My client had level 2 virgin, thick coarse hair," says Kimberly Chong (@kimstylesme) of Cupertino/Santa Clara in the San Jose, California, area.

Here she shares the details for this makeover:

  1. I foiled her whole head which took a couple of hours (all slices no dropout). I started in the back right quadrant and bumped up my developer for each quadrant after, starting with 15, then 20, then 25, then 30.
  2. I checked her foils as she processed then pulled the hair out of the foils after she reached a level 7-8.
  3. I then bleached her roots to a level 6-7 using 20 volume developer.
  4. She was rinsed at the shampoo bowl and then blow dried about 80%.
  5. I applied a custom mix of Pulp Riot Fireball (red) and Lemon (yellow) and an inch of Joico Color Intensity Fiery Coral at zone 1 for a shadowed root effect. I then used Joico Color Intensity Fiery Coral (splash of water to dilute the color) for zones 2 & 3.

Her appointment was roughly 6.5 hrs long, but felt more like 3ish because we talked the whole time!

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.
