When a client like this sits in your chair, your top thought is probably, “OMG.” Your second thought? “How do I fix this without doing more damage?” We got the deets from @colourmesue at Salon B Amsterdam, who took home the win for Best Overall Winner and Best Makeover at the @olaplexnederland 2018 Social Media Awards.

 

“This was quite a makeover,” Sue said. “Her hair wouldn’t get rid of the green (it was there for almost a year!), so it was really important to make this color last, but in a way that wasn’t compromising her hair, since the quality was bad from previous coloring.” Sue used Olaplex No.1 in every formula (not just the lightener) to ensure the best hair health she possibly could. When going darker, hair color can fade quickly and slowly start to become muddled. Olaplex multiplies the bonds of the hair, giving color molecules more to attach to, which increases color longevity—and that’s why Sue uses it in ALL her formulas!
