Salon Sovay stylist, Sovay Reeder, creates a fun new look for her client this weekend...just in time for summer and her new job!

We had a fun time transforming my client's look which began with color.  This was the first time I met her (and her hair).  She had about 1 1/2 inches of new growth we had to address first.

Step 1 - color:
I lifted her base with 10 Volume developer and 8.1 Pravana color and then applied 9BV/8N PM Shine to her entire base to get more overall depth to her existing blonde...her baseline color was simply too yellow and brassy.

Step 2 - color:
I applied highlights with 5 Volume Developer/Lightener and lowlights with 7N PM Shine throughout top and sides of head (commonly referred to as a "partial")

Step 3 - Hot Heads Extensions
We used Hot Heads Extensions length 18-20 inch number 27 and number  8, 1:1 ratio for highlight, lowlight effect

Step 4 - Styling
We cut the extensions to create a face frame effect and cut her bangs to frame her face optimally.  We also created light layering and texturizing to the extensions for blending purposes.  A curling iron ( 1 1/2 inch) was used to add bounce and light curl to her extensions.  Voila...done :)
