Color Correction: Box Color Brown to Pink Platinum

It’s no surprise that the biggest OMG transformations take some serious time, and this one was no different. Nine hours, five shades and a LOT of color later, Eric Vaughn (@realericvaughn), owner of REV Salon in Houston, took his client from boxed color brunette to pink and platinum.

 

Total chair time: 9 hours

 

Pricing: Eric charges $120/hour for a corrective color, so this appointment cost his client $1,080 in total.
