This Colorist Specializes in Transforming Botched Hair Jobs—You Have to See Them
By Emily Rekstis |
We’ve all been there—where we go in for a fresh, new color and walk out with a botched dye-job. Then cue the panic. While most colorists are able to do color-corrections, there’s one in Los Angeles that women are flocking to.
Lema Ahmad with Agencé Salon in San Dimas claims to specialize in "hot messes." “Being a hot mess myself, I felt like people wouldn't get offended if I started specializing in 'hot messes,'" she told Refinery29.

She said the whole thing started four years ago when a client came in with a messed-up color. She told Ahmad, “My hair is a mess and I don’t care what you do, just fix this.” Five hours later the client was so happy with the results she told Ahmad, “I was such a hot mess, you should tell people [that’s what] you specialize in.”
The tagline stuck and now she shares her incredible before-and-afters on Instagram. Check out some of her best transformations below.
MUH-NEY HONEY👌🏼😍 to be honest, her previous stylist lifted her base w permanent color (there's nothing wrong w that but I don't like to lift bases bc it makes it harder to lift when babylighting, trying to get to an ashy blonde base color) so I'm slowly working on lifting that mid shaft. It was my first time doing her hair so I played it safe,, but now I know what it can handle and how far I can push it for next time💪🏼
