PRAVANA, a pioneer of the creative color trend with the introduction of its highly-pigmented, long-lasting, top performing Vivids line over 13 years ago, has continually maintained its status as an innovator. The original Vivids line has expanded to become the first to introduce black light responsive Neons, clear and black additives for customization, non-transferable Locked-in shades, jewel tones, brand new metallics and more. Now, the Vivids line has 34 intermixable shades.

PRAVANA enlisted Hannah Edelman, or better known as Hannah the Painter on Instagram, to take on the 34-Vivids Challenge and create a beautiful, striking rainbow hair look using ALL 34 Vivids shades by creating custom formulas and painting on strategically placed color melts!
