When your client moves from the Midwest—where winter weather is extra blistering and very unkind to their hair—to Florida—where winters are… what’s a winter?—a change in haircolor is necessary. But for most, that change entails going from dark to light—a sunnier tone to match the beach weather they’re now surrounded by. But Chloe Dela Merced of Salon Tease in Naples, FL had different plans for her new client—an Illinois transplant in the Sunshine State. “Her hair was in bad condition and she trusted us to do whatever we thought would look best on her,” says Chloe. “The process took about five hours but she left with healthy, well-balanced and shiny hair!” Here’s how Chloe transformed these weather-damaged tresses into a smooth shade of cocoa.

FORMULA STEPS

 

 

1. Since the bottom half is darker than the top, soap cap the bottom half and let process for 10 minutes. Once complete, blow-dry the hair.

2. Apply Formula A on the top section, where the soap cap was not applied, and pull through to the ends.

3. Use Formula B on the prelightened section to cancel out any unwanted red tones. Process for 20 minutes then shampoo. 

4. Using a babylights technique, apply Formula C over the entirety of the hair to create color balance, dimension and softness.

5. By this stage, the hair within the foils should be at a Level 9 or 10. Therefore, gloss the hair with Formula D and process for 15 minutes.

6. Apply two parts Olaplex and let process for 15 minutes.

7. Rinse, shampoo and condition the hair.
