Lovely in Lilac: Ireland Baldwin by Justin Andersson

Justin Andersson (@anderssonjj ), a colorist at Chris McMillan the Salon in Beverly Hills, shared the formula on Instagram for this pretty pastel lilac. His client is model Ireland Baldwin.

PREP: Start on a fresh bleached and toned base using Olaplex.

STEP ONE: On root, Pravana ¾ Silver and ¼ Pastel Lavender and lowlights randomly pulled through with a color board to create dimension. Process 15 minutes.

STEP TWO: Pull Pravana Silver with a “Skillet-Sized” dot of Pastel Lavender through the ends for 10 minutes under dryer. Andersson has this suggestion for working with the color which is not necessarily a Pravana-approved technique but, he says, “Be sure to really work color into porous hair by literally rubbing the color aggressively into the hair.”

STEP THREE: Wash hair and cover roots to ends with ¾ Clean Shine and ¼ 9v Shades EQ at bowl for 10 minutes to seal in color, add shine and a hint more Silver.

“I sent Ireland home with a tube of her favorite conditioner mixed with a dot of lavender color. Clients can use this at home to refresh purple tone as needed.”

MAKEOVER: Three Sessions Of Beauty

Jenn Malone (@jmalonehair) at Agence Salon, San Dimas, California, says her client "had 85% virgin hair. Her goal is to be a 'rooty' platinum blonde while still keeping the 'lived in' look. My main goal was to get her to her desired color, while still maintaining the integrity of her hair. Patience is the key in achieving this!" How to here.
