Aurora Kirafas: I tried this on my grey/ash blonde bob with dark ash brown. I'm very happy with the result!! I coconut oil as well. Thank you!!

Lauren McCardell: I don't know whether I should use a 6G or an 8G.... Can you help?

beverley latham: I had a Balayage and loved it but as I have lots of grey the roots would come though like a white stripe so I went back to blonde again. Love your hair though, it looks fantastic xx

Emily McCusker: Do you use the same technique if you don't have a middle part?

Emily McCusker: Anyone have any suggestions on a root color I can get at Sally's so I can try this out? I want the root to not have any gold / red tones. My root is as already a dark ashy blonde...what's the best to use st Sally's that's close to a medium beige / sandy blonde?

Avery Tomsovic: How does it not ruin the blond highlights? I’m really confused and scared to just paint brown on my highlighted parts. I want it to be brown kinda underneath like yours but I still just don’t get how you painted brown on it but your highlights stayed perfect! I hope I don’t do it wrongly!!! I’m so amazed how you did it, such a great job!!

gonejellyfishin: What color brand is it?

Marisa Ericson: I keep seeing conflicting opinions on this, what do you suggest? Do I want to use a demi-permanent or permanent color to paint a shadow root on hair that has been bleached to the root? Thanks!💕

Tommie Richardson: Thank you! This worked awesome! I have platinum blond tinted hair that is likely 90%+ grey so no pigment is an issue with coloring. I used the Age Beautiful 8G with a 20 Volume developer. The diagonal sectioning was so effective. I watched your video several times and got the technique down. My hair is fine so the way you were holding up sections worked well for me. The back was covered very well with your method. The results were a gorgeous gold blend with the platinum blond. I may try a 7G next time because the results were really subtle and I think I want to go for more contrast. It was like I couldn't mess this up. The brush application is easy and very effective. It covered the grey roots as well with this method as you said, "covering the perimeters". Very happy and will continue to use this method for touch ups!

Julie Cardona: Can you tell us what color and brand you used?

Self Sovereign: Love it! So stunning!

Amalie Fabech: Can i do this with natrual blond hair because my hair is kind of the same blond all over and i really want some darkness in it

Carly Gee: You might not answer this since this video is so old now but I'm going to ask anyway. Why did you use 20vol instead of 10vol? We aren't lifting anything so im concerned that using 20vol won't deposit enough color?

Leona Rose: After so many salon disasters and insults from hairdressers I decided never to put myself through it again. I invested in olaplex the same thing I would have paid for in 2 salon trips has lasted me 18 months. It's been a learning curve but so worth it. The olaplex has saved my hair , these videos have helped me develop my technique, and I finally have the right color and lightening formulation figured out. If I mess up I can live with it but I will not pay to be insulted. In
20 years I have never gotten the look I wanted in a salon but now I can get exactly what I want myself. I wish I could post pics. 😉😙

Briana Buenrostro: Can you do this on bleached out yellow hair? Do we need a filler? What color do you recommend for a level 10 yellow color?

Xochitl Manley: I bleached my hair blonde.... then decided as I saw my roots in 2 days! My hair grows like it's on crack!!! Thanks to my mom using her homemade hair paste. Anyway I'm wanting rose gold. Got the perfect mix ready (did strip test already) I want to dye my roots like what you showed. My question is. Should i do this balayage first, then go back with the rose gold to my ends? Or will that mess up my balayage? I would love your recommendation! Thanks!

Kelly Pye: Ok. I've wondered about this forever and im sure you've already explained this but I gotta know...why Ellebangs?

Nichole Ogden: What color line are u using

Natasha Sivret: Please never remove this video because I have been using it for the past 3 years.... my hair looks great because of it and I don’t know what I would do without it :)
