I'm so freaking excited to share this process with you today! I came across this amazing picture of @luanna90, a fashion blogger with the MOST incredible red hair I've ever seen! Its looks like her hair in on fire...and every time I see it I sing to myself "this girl is on fire.... this girl is on fireeeee!" I know you're singing it with me haha! As soon as I shared this with my friend Erin she immediately fell in love. So she came to my salon to transform into a vibrant redhead.
Today I'm sharing with you the whole process from start to finish. Because Erin has a fine hair texture that can easily be fragile when coloring, and she is growing her hair out, we really wanted to make sure that we protect her hair from becoming over processed. Thanks to Olaplex we kept her hair strong, gorgeous, and shiny. This took me 4 hours to complete, and I have no problem with that because I made sure to do everything to protect her hair. Transformations like this take time, so if your going to the salon for an ombre or just different then what you have be sure to bring a book! See how I take her hair through this process and how I do it. Hope you guys enjoy!
