This springtime dream is giving us life! Stylist and #ONESHOT Hair Awards Finalist Jaymz Marsters @jaymz.marsters from Norfolk, England wiped out this client’s washed-out, direct dyed blue, creating a clean slate for this precious confection. Here’s the whole how-to!

 

Starting Level: The client’s regrowth was a Level 6, with prelightened midlengths that had the residue of old blue direct dye throughout the midlengths and ends. She wanted a shorter style, so to save time and product, Jaymz cut her hair prior to coloring.

FORMULA STEPS

1. Apply Formula A to regrowth and process for 10 minutes.

 

2. Apply Formula A to the midlengths, avoiding any blue areas left over from previous color.

 

3. Immediately apply Formula B onto all the old direct dye areas, emulsifying it into the hair to help remove pigment. Process for 20 minutes or until you reach a Level 9 or 10.

 

4. Shampoo, then tone with Formula C for five minutes to remove warmth from the hair.

 

5. Apply MoringapleX Pre-Style Leave-in Spray and blow-dry.

 

 

1. Using a traditional sectioning pattern, apply Formula A onto the root area, blending down each section using your fingers and a comb after each section.

 

2. Starting at the nape of the neck, apply Formulas B, C and D onto the midlengths and ends, alternating the shades as you work toward the top and front of the head. Make sure you finish with Formula D on the crown area to create a lived-in lightness around the top.

 

3. Process for 20 minutes, then rinse in cool water and apply Olaplex No.2 for 10 minutes.

 

4. Lightly shampoo, condition, blow-dry and style.
