    I voted Aveda but meant that with the lavender outcome. I would avoid the salon that doesn’t have good examples. Plus how can they know how a knockoff product is going to react. I’d have Aveda do the platinum then have your cousin do lavender. Show pics when it’s done! 🙂

    You need Olaplex. Especially going from a level 3 or 4 to a level 10 in one session is crazy. I wouldn’t go to either salons honestly. But it’s best to do at least 2 sessions to go that blonde, unless the colorist is going to spend 12 hours on your hair to get you there in as healthy way as possible. I’m big on Olaplex, there’s a big difference doing an Olaplex treatment on my hair as I have asian black hair and am a level 10 now for the last 10 years. Good luck, I hope you reach your hair goals!

    monsterly :  agreed 

    that is really light.  You gotta break up the sessions and give your hair time to bounce back.

    I’d get a wig instead. No damage and you could change the color and style as much as you want.

    Go for the lavender! But please go to a salon that uses olaplex especially since you are going drastically lighter. It really does make a difference!

    justwondering2015 :  I wouldn’t go that light with any stylist you don’t trust 100%. They can DESTROY your hair. My natural color is almost black and I’m currently a very light ash blonde.

    After major frustration with prior stylists I found my last 2 amazing stylists on instagram. They both use Olaplex with Schwarzkopf color. I found them on Schwarzkopf’s instagram feed and then checked out their own instagrams for more examples of their work. Guy Tang used to rep Kenra products before launching his own line, so you may want to check out their feed too. I also looked for stylists who had a lot of examples of lightening Asian hair, even though I’m not Asian.

    I don’t usually associate Aveda with the type of look you are going for, but I’m not an expert by any means. I would NOT use a stylist who cheaps out and uses knockoff products. 

    If I were you, I’d cancel both appointments and find a stylist whose work you love. 

    My hair is still recovering from damage done by a stylist I dumped a year ago. 😕
