Kristin Grip (@HairByKristinGrip) says client Delaney "was open to anything so I decided to make her a redhead!"

Here Grip shares the details for the makeover:

Step 1: Start by adding a dozen foils of Redken Flash Lift  and 10v.

Step 2: Then go through and alternate panels of Goldwell 7KG with two different developers, 10v & 20v, hoping to add a little dimension. Once the panels were in, apply a root color of 3parts 6KG, 1part 6KR with 15v. "Her highlights were the perfect shade of yellow so I opened the foils and let them air process as well while smudging the red into the base of each one with my fingers."

Step 3: At the shampoo bowl use a method "I call 'smushlights'. Smush the surrounding color on to the highlights during rinsing so that toning is not necessary."

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.
