TRANSFORMING FUN SHADES: Hot Pink To Mermaid
Megan Chiles (@hairstylist_MC) of Nico Bella Salon, Camas, Washington, was thrilled her her most recent challenge. "My client come in with about 2 and a half inches of level 6 grow out. Mid shaft to ends was faded Manic Panic red so it was dark pink."
Here she shares the details for this transformation:
STEP 1: Lighten the roots with Wella Blondor and 20 volume. Process for 20 minutes and then put Wella Blondor and 6 volume on the ends "to pull out as much of the pink as I could without compromising the integrity of the hair." The result of the lightening was pale blonde where the regrowth was with a light pink mid shaft and very pale pink ends.
STEP 2: To the root, apply Joico Sapphire Blue.
STEP 3: Then alternate different combinations of color melts from mids to ends:
-Joico Indigo, Light Purple, and Light Purple and Clear mix
-Pravana Neon Green
-A mix of Pravana and Rusk to make a custom emerald green.
"When applying I kept any green shades off of the hair that was still really pink."
STEP 4: Process with heat for 20 minutes. Cool and then rinse with cool water.
