A new client with Level 1 hair sits in your chair. During your consultation, you discover she has previously bleached and then darkened her hair—multiple times—and now she wants something new. What’s your next move?

 

If you’re Hai Tran (@hai.stylist), a stylist at Salon Q in Wichita, Kan., you safely lift her (over the course of three sessions, with about four weeks between each session) to a gorgeous silver/blue color melt. Check out his process!

 

Pricing: each session took approximately 5 hours at $75 per hour
