Pravana's "Show Us Your Vivids" Contest Now Accepting Entries
Erica Keelen created her entry using ChromaSilk Crème Hair Color and Vivids drawing inspiration from Van Gogh’s "Starry Night". Pravana’s Artistic Color Director Vadre Grigsby said for Keelen’s technique, the “color combination required different levels of lift to achieve the vibrancy. The pre-Vivids application work was done perfectly.” Keelen’s creative color placement, polished styling and stunning overall effect embodied the spirit of the contest, bringing home her first place win.Photo By Pravana Photo 1 of 2
“This contest changed my career!” Keelen said. “My photos went viral and within two months, I had gained over 5,000 new followers on Instagram!” Her color work has been shared by national beauty publications, both in print and online as well as via social media.Photo By Pravana Photo 2 of 2
