Pravana Artistic Educator Presley Poe (@presleypoe) transformed her client's color into a blushing orchid blend of pastel pink, magenta and lavender. Using Vivids XL, Pravana's new extra large tubes of top Chromasilk Vivids colors, Poe created this stunning color, as well as the makeup and wardrobe styling. On Instagram, Poe names one of her role models and describes the journey she has been on to create beautiful hair and photo shoots:

"Every since the first time I saw a photo from the amazingly talented @daryna_barykina I was obsessed with hair in motion and vowed to one day be able to take my own photos of my work in a similar way. This shoot was my first attempt. If you would've told me a year ago that I could take a halfway decent picture of anything I would've laughed you out of the room! But with time and persistence I am proud to be on my trajectory! @pravana gave me the incentive to work my bunz off and documenting my work just fueled the fire!"

Marianne Lohr (@mannie_mak), a freelance artist based in Bethlehem,PA., says "My new client came in to see me because she was never happy with her blonde and how gold/yellow it was. She wanted to be an all over platinum blonde at first, but then had mentioned how she's always wanted to have purple hair. Her dream came true that day." Details here.
