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.

She said the whole thing started four years ago when a client came in with a messed-up color.

The tagline stuck and now she shares her incredible before-and-afters on Instagram. Check out some of her best transformations below.
