Hi all.

I have a client who is naturally a base 7 who has pixie ish length hair. Would say at the longest point perhaps 5 inch. She has had bleached white grey/platinum hair for the last 15 years I would say. Anywho, after last lockdown she decided for low maintenance to go brown (with approx 1.5inch regrowth at this point) .....
I prepigged with a colour mousse and used an equal mix of koleston 6/77 and 7/7. The result was lovely. Took her some getting used to but she's had a couple of cuts since and it still looks lovely. Albeit the colour had lightened probably to a level 7 but not enough for roots to be noticible.
Fast forward to now. Obviously at present we are back in lockdown however she has messaged me suggesting that the next time we meet she would like the brown removing and go back blonde 😂🙈 and would like to know my thoughts.
How would you guys tackle it?
I'm conscious of the virgin regrowth, the previous regrowth coloured at a current level 7 and then the previously bleached, filled and coloured hair.
I'm hoping a good cut will eliminate most of the latter however don't want to make promises I can't keep.
I'm prepared to manage expectations with regard to lift however I haven't done bleach to brown to bleach before in 3 sittings on such short hair 🙈

I personally would do a strand test on a section of hair that is longest. This way it will reveal any banding or problem areas. I should imagine this one will be quite straight forward. I'd go in with bleach 4% on the coloured ends first, allow to lift to a clean level 8 then go back through and apply bleach and 6% on the roots and allow to lift to desired level. Then tone :)
