It's spooky season and Crazy Color’s Color Squad got busy with some Halloween hair inspo that allows your client to flex all over Halloween.
Blood Red by Mikey Ferrer Jr, @mikeyferrerjr
Formula One: Ruby Rouge
Formula Two: Ruby Rouge with 4 dots of Black
Step 1: Lighten roots to level 8 to create an intentional ‘hot root’. You’ll also want to lighten those ends to level 8.
Step 2: Apply Formula One on the roots, and about two inches down, blend into Formula Two and bring it down all the way through the mids lengths.
Step 3: Blend Formula One into the mids lengths and down to the ends.
Step 4: Rinse with cool water and apply ANTI Bleed Spray and gently comb through. I always leave this in the hair as it’s a great leave-in treatment.
Step 5: Blow-dry and style with a 1inch wand.
Halloween-Lights by Bianca Stout, @hairbybiancarose
Base Formula: Hot Purple and Cyclamen in equal parts and a dot of Natural Black
Mids and Ends Formula: Ribbons of Natural Black, Coral Red + Orange, Hot Purple and Emerald Green
Step 1: Apply your base color.
Step 2: Melt your individual colors into the base color.
Step 3: Work in a pattern, so two slices of individual color, I used Hot Purple and Emerald Green, then separate by four slices of main color, I used Orange.
Step 4: Finish it off by focusing the black formula in the back quadrants.
Pumpkin Patch by Jessica Phillips, @jessicaphillips_hair
Formula One: Anarchy UV, Coral Red and Orange
Formula Two: Caution UV
Step 1: I started with a Level 4, natural brown base. I prelightened to my desired level using the Crazy Color High Lift Bleaching Kit.
Step 2: Focus the application Formula One at the root and towards the mid section so you can bleed into Formula Two.
Step 3: Use less Formula One around the face frame and bleed Formula Two much higher up to create a sweeping color effect around the head.
Step 4 Wash, dry and style as desired.
Peek-A-Boo by Kel Tanner, @kellitanner
Step 1: To start, take slanting back triangular blocks from back of the ear to bottom of occipital, and triangular blocks on either side from low recession to behind the ear.
Step 2: Balayage each block with sweeping V’s and W’s (make sure you lift to at least a level 9)
Step 3: Everything else that’s left outside the blocks, darken with a Demi permanent glaze (here I used a 3A)
Step 4: Wash, then tone the balayage to neutralize unwanted warmth and power dry the hair.
Step 5: Using Cyclamen, Sapphire, Peacock Blue, and a mixture of Hot purple and a few POWER Pigment Drops in Pink, alternate sections of only Sapphire, then Peacock Blue blended into Sapphire, Cyclamen into Hot Purple, and repeat.
Step 6: When styled the blocks live internally to the base color we did, making maintenance easier because the highlights live inside of the part lines and hairline.
