Inspired by the Pantone shades of Vanilla Custard and Fruit Dove, ColorDesign artists Jackie Heredia and Tatianna Salcedo created this melt using ColorDesign color and ABBA stylers.
“When we saw the Pantone Colors for Autumn/Winter 2019, we thought it be fun to create an escape from the cold using their vibrant colors as Havana-esque inspiration,” the team says.

STEP 1: In diagonal-back partings, foil Formula 1 up to previously lightened hair with baby-fine slices, leaving 1/4” in between. Process until level 8.
STEP 2: Section dry hair into quadrants. Starting in the back-right quadrant using diagonal back partings, tap the top of the parting with Formula 2. Lift hair up and over toward the middle point of the quadrants, feather Formula 2 from underneath your section up toward middle point of quadrants. Repeat on all sections. Process for 35 minutes and rinse.
STEP 3: Section dry hair into quadrants. Beginning in the back-right quadrant, apply Formula 3 from shadow root to end using diagonal back partings. Process for 20 minutes and shampoo with ColorDesign Reconstruction Shampoo. Condition with Reconstruction Oil and apply Mask on top of Oil for 15 minutes. Rinse and towel dry hair then apply ABBA Complete All-in-1 Leave-in spray to detangle and then apply ABBA Smoothing Blow Dry Lotion and style as desired.
