We had previously had a full set of fusion hair extensions on this client while we were growing out her hair from damage due to a previous round of ombre induced bleach damage she had received at another salon.
For this overhaul we first removed her extensions (upper center and left) and applied a color remover product to her full head (upper right). You can see the color remover shows us the lines of demarcation from the previous color services she had done.
After processing the color remover under heat we shampooed her hair and applied lightener in foils to keep it just barely off her scalp. We used 20 volume and a single dose of Olaplex to maintain the health of her hair we had been working to protect. On the bottom left and center you can see the in process picture and the after lightener picture as well.
To complete this look we applied Affinage color from the B.Red highlift series in red, using a 20 volume formulation at her root section and a 10 volume formula on her mid-lengths and ends.
You can see the completed look (with a slight trim to shape her hair) in the bottom right photo. We were able to accomplish a major color change and still maintain her hair health and keep some length on her fresh layered hairstyle.
