This client came as a referral to our salon as she had heard Daniel is an expert with lightening Korean hair. Sometimes this can be challenging as the darker the hair the more gold it will throw during the lightening process. Daniel spent some time on Ombre placement than a cool soft toner to achieve the clients desired result. It looks stunning.

After having a time with bright copper hair this lovely lady has decided to go ‘Blonde” for summer.
Kumar did a very in-depth consultation of what this would require and how many visits this would take. This is visit one and a warm soft blonde was achieved. Next visit the plan is for more lighter highlights with a cooler reflect. It is so important to use the prescribed hair care at home especially when going through a journey of change with your hairstyle!
