How do we take her from level 9/10 to a 5/6?
Answer: FILL THE HAIR FIRST
.
What happens if you donโ€™t use a filler? 
1. Your color can look hollow.
2. The color washes out fast!
3. It can look muddy
4. Your dealing with porosity issues so it can also look blotchy!
.
For this model I took her over processed, bleached hair and filled her hair with Demi-Permanent. Demi is ammonia free and this is the BEST option when dealing with compromised hair. .
Here is her color breakdown using all @kenraprofessional :
.
Fill Formula:
Mids and ends with 7CG/7G 
I chose a level 7 as my filler because itโ€™s 1 level above my final target color. Since her hair is now lacking gold and copper, I replaced those pigments at that level. 
REMEMBER โ˜๐Ÿผ When you are filling hair, itโ€™s primary job is to replace the pigments (red, orange, yellow) that were lost when lightening the hair. .
Final Formula:
Natural Level 4
New Growth-Permanent 6N/6BC 30Vol to lift 2 levels (Kenra Color is low ammoniaโ˜๐Ÿผ)
Mids and ends- 6BC 9vol Demi .

It makes my heart happy to know you all are loving these fill formula posts/videos! .
So here are a few questions that keep coming up:
โ€ขWhy fill with Demi ? 
Because itโ€™s less damaging to the hair than using permanent because itโ€™s AMMONIA FREE.  Permanent should ONLY be used when lifting is needed. In this case we are depositing only. .
โ€ข Why 30 vol and not 20?
Kenra Color is low ammonia.  In order to lift a FULL 2 levels you need to use 30!  Remember each brand is different!  Not one size fits all.  You can even reference in your color manuals to see what your brand recommends!  Follow the rules before you break them!  Super important to understand that 20vol in one line is different than 20vol in another.  This is why you should use the appropriate developer with the brand that you are using! .
โ€ขWhat if my client wants an Ash shade and not warm? 
Follow the same rules when filling. Replace your warm tones that were lost at that level you are trying to achieve and then finish with your desired Ash color.  If you threw ash over this over processed blonde you would be left with a super muddy color or maybe a gray/silver ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ
.
โ€ขThe final color looks red/copper, not brunette!
More of a comment than a question but I want to clarify. Brunette is simply a term used for level of brightness.  1-5 brunette 6-9 blonde.  Yes, her color is brunette and yes her color is a brown copper because thatโ€™s what she wanted.  I hope this clarifies things๐Ÿฅด

COLOR PRO TIP ๐Ÿ’ช from @omgartistry! 
Is it time for your client's to break-up with their low lights? ๐Ÿค” โ €
Pro Stylist Tip: Color correcting and breaking up chunky highlights is now much easier with this double foiled technique. Micro weave the section and apply lightener, then weave out the lowlight and layer a foil on top to avoid overlapping any lightener over the pre existing blonde pieces. To avoid bleeding with all foiling techniques, apply light compression when folding.

Lets talk about fillers! 
They are such an important part of the coloring process, but SO UNDER USED! Why is that? .
Anytime you are coloring previously lightened hair 2 or more levels darker, a filler should be used.
.
.

What is a filler? 
A filler is replenishing the pigment lost when lifting the hair, specifically with lightener/bleach.  In this photo you can see we stripped out all the copper/orange pigment (to a level 9 on the ends). Thatโ€™s why she was able to be so blonde.  Thereโ€™s no orange!  Now that she wants to go darker, we need to put that orange back in! For this model I used 3/4oz 7G(gold) and 1/4 8C(copper) because copper tends to take over and I wanted her finish to look natural warm brown and not vibrant.
.
.

What happens if you donโ€™t use a filler?
Well, a couple things might happen. 
1. Your color can look hollow.
2. The color washes out fast!
3. It can look muddy
4. Your dealing with porosity issues so it can also look blotchy!
.
.
Here is her color breakdown:
Using all @kenraprofessional Demi-Permanent 
1. I foiled her hair with 8B and a ribbon of 7BC (no filler used on these sections because we are not coloring 2 levels darker, just toning)
.
2. I mixed up her filler formula and applied it to all her blonde left out of the foils. Processed for 10 minutes. .
3. This is where it gets a little unconventional.  I took 4 towels and wiped off the filler as much as possible trying to make sure it felt as dry as it could with out washing or drying.  I did this to not disrupt the foils as I did not want to pick them out later. Thatโ€™s too much work ๐Ÿ˜…
.
4. Applied 6N/6BC 1:2 with 9vol from roots to ends and processed for 20 minutes. .
.
This whole process took me 2 1/2 hours and her color will hold a little longer than if I were to just slap the final color all over.  You can see she still has dimension, itโ€™s healthy and best of all, no ammonia was used in the process! .
