Stylist Becky Riggs from BJ Grand Salon in Springfield, Illinois shares how she created this striking color transformation using OYA products. The process took two appointments, but the gorgeous results prove that it was worth every minute!

Appointment 1

1. I started off with 1 clarifying shampoo, following with 1 modulate (color remover) under a dryer for 20 min.
2. Next I did 5 shampoos, scrubbing off old residual color. Client was at a level 5 orange. It Looked "raw" all over like a rust color from using the modulate.
3.  Coloring time!
