Natalie Britt (@natnatkittycatt) is having a pretty good week. First, the stylist from Roots Beauty Studio in Fort Collins, Colo., had this amazing blue color melt featured on BTC’s Instagram page, where it racked up more than 11,000 likes! Then, we received a message from Natalie, who shared with us that because her work was featured on BTC, she got an amazing surprise at the salon—a promotion! And did we mention Natalie is only 20 years old?!

 

Lucky for us, Nat was more than willing to share that gorgeous color formula. Check it out below! Oh, and congrats, Natalie! Totally deserved. 

 

Total Price: $200 for bleach retouch and color application. (Natalie says she has been lightening her client for about a year using Olaplex to insure integrity. This particular look required four bleaching processes (eight months), and she charged $200 each time).
