Hair Color How To: Wild Magenta Orchid by Lindsey DeMith
Lindsey DeMith created this beautiful wild magenta orchid color for a regular client who frequently changes her hair color. Lindsey explains step-by-step how she created the look:1. For this color, I started with Malibu DDL with 20 volume to remove her previous teal at the root area that melted into wild orchid and violet.2. Once I was able to lift that out, I lightened the base with Keune Cream Bleach and 30 volume and balayaged some pieces throughout to diffuse the line of demarcation at the regrowth. I lifted her to a level 9.
