How-To: Geode Crystal

This season the CosmoProf Artistic Team is inspired by geode crystals.

“Shiny and dark crystals with contrasting tones throughout,” Larisa Love says. “They are metallic shades that mesh.”

Love and Phil Ring had to think fast. “Our model had a lot going on with a lot of previous color,” Ring says. “She had natural regrowth and permanent red in her hair that was difficult to remove.”

After a quick bleach wash, the artists were left with a better palette and went to the color wheel to get to their desired shade. Love and Ring deposited a customized blend of blues and finished with a glaze to reach the desired shade. Before styling, Wheeler added customized extensions to create the crystal contrast.
