to ends. These color formulations are applied to all the hair
outside the butterfl y. Feather the second shade in to the
existing base shade. Color is separated with thermal paper.

at different areas of the strand. Sometimes the color is applied
closer to the scalp, sometimes further along the section.
Process for 30 minutes, then shampoo and condition.

9. Three different shades are alternated within butterfl y. On
midstrands: alternate BK@9 with KK@all equal parts to
make an intense beige copper. One inch sections are
separated with thermal papers. In the next section apply
BK@9 with GK@all to make an intense beige gold copper.
The third shade is a diluted pink rose: AB@9 with PK@all.
Process for 15 to 30 minutes.

For this design, created exclusively for MODERN SALON Media, Goldwell's International Artistic Director Dimitrios Tsioumas took Goldwell's FasciNature’s butterfly concept to the extreme. ”Wings, as in butterfly wings, are the concept and the technique. How they are positioned is up to the artist. That is where he or she can get as simple or complex as desired.”

Tsioumas chose to go strong for this finish by taking the entire butterfly, including the body and all wings, to create this look. Multiple shades are used throughout, including a background shade and internal shading within each wing. Diffusion is as important as color selection. The finished result is beautiful and tasteful while staying true to the trend.
