International Artistic Director, Color Therapy for Keratin Complex

THE VISION: "To me, dimension is using a color that enhances or balances the main tone," Gavin says. "Sometimes that means a deeper or contrastin shade. Here, we wanted to create movement that enhanced the hue."

FORMULAS/APPLICATION:

Natural Level 6


Formula 1: KeraHold, 10 ml/.33 oz. 2.0/2N + 20 ml/.66 oz. 6.62/6RV with 30ml/1 oz. 10-volume developer

Formula 2: 20 ml/.66 oz 2.0/2N + 10ml/.33 oz. 5.6/5R with 30 ml/1 oz. 10-volume developer Formula 3: 25 ml/.75 oz. 6.62/6RV + 15 ml/.5 oz. 5.6/5R with 40 ml/1.35 oz. 20-volume developer

Step 1: Create a top circular section from 2 inches behind the forehead that encompasses the crown. Working on a diagonal below the circle, take microfi ne slices and apply Formula 1 from scalp to ends.

Step 2: Directly on top of the previous slice, create another micro-slice and apply Formula 2 from scalp to ends. Skip 2 inches of hair and repeat the procedure until slices encompass the entire head shape.

Step 3: Apply Formula 3 to the top circular section. Process 35 minutes. Then cleanse and condition with Keratin Complex shampoo and conditioner.
