Modern Salon | July 10, 2011 | 8:46 PM

The artistic team of Artease, a new boutique line of color, recently released its debut collection. The looks were created with Arteasecolors, which feature an easy-to-use system with 89 shades that can be used as permanent or demipermanent color. The pigment is 99-percent unoxidized and colorists can achieve 100-percent gray coverage with 10-volume developer.

Here, a warm brunette was achieved:

Step 1: Colorist Dee Lescault started with previously colored Level-7 hair in a copper shade. She separated the fringe area and pre-lightened with 10 grams of Arteasecolors powder bleach with 20 grams 7-volume activator, processing for 10 minutes at room temperature.

Step 2: Once lifted, the fringe was toned with five grams Arteasecolors 7/0 (medium blonde), 10 grams 7/7 (medium blonde brown) with 15 grams 7-volume activator. The toner was applied with a brush from the regrowth to the ends in the fringe.

Step 3: For the rest of the hair, 40 grams 5/77 (light intense brown) with 40 grams 7-volume activator was applied from regrowth to ends. Both formulas were processed for 30 minutes at room temperature, rinsed, shampooed, conditioned
and towel-dried.

The end result: A milk chocolate shade with a rich caramel fringe.
