Olaplex Ambassador and celebrity colorist Chad Kenyon @chadkenyon takes his show on the road, operating out of salons in New York and Los Angeles (Ramirez-Tran Salon), where his trademarked COLORMELT service creates both subtle and dramatic transformations that are always flattering and face-framing.  On this client, he took her from lovely girl-next-door to cutting-edge cool.

"I transitioned her previously foiled level 8 medium blonde into level 9-10, baby bright/white Debby Harry Blondie badass blonde," Kenyon says of this rockin' reveal.  

Kenyon used Olaplex N°1 in every formula of his COLORMELT™️ service:

STEP ONE: Redken Free Hand Lightener & Shades EQ painting with Framar PowerPainter.

STEP TWO: Applied Olaplex N°2 immediately upon rinsing each section of balayage ("Essential always, my friends!") and shampoo-conditioned with Olaplex N°4 & N°5.

FINISH: "Raphael Silerio @raphael_silerio slayed this cut and style."
