TRANSFORMATION: Metallic Color Melt


One of MODERN's favorite artists, Rebecca Taylor (@vividartistichairdesign) created this "Metallic Color Melt" that caught our eye on instagram. 

Here she offers the how to:

Step 1: Install 20' tape-in extensions (done a few weeks previously). "She was about a level 9 (with extensions) and had a 2 inch level 4 regrowth."
Step 2: Apply Wella Color Touch 4/0 on zone 1, blending into zone 2
Step 3: Color melt/smudge into Kenra 8SM and Pravana silver along the mids and ends.
Step 4: Processing can be longer than usual. Says Taylor:  "There was no need to be concerned with over processing due to Wella Color Touch being a no-lift acidic demi (with 1.9 vol developer) and the silver formulas being similar and/or direct dyes (the Pravana). Honestly, because the extension hair type tends to be more porous....I feel like the longer you process deposit only color, the better saturation and longevity."
