“ I’m inspired by the modern girl who is bucking the system and being a true individual—that girl who shaves the side of her head, and leaves the rest long.” —Matthew Morris

Begin with base color application in the back of the head. Using a brush and bowl technique, apply Majirel: ¾ tube 5.25 plus ¼ tube 7N with 20 volume plus one ounce violet mixer to make a medium plum brown. Apply to just the two inches closest to the scalp.

Continue to apply throughout the hair in ½-inch sections. Again, apply just to the two inches from the scalp. Process 35 minutes at room temperature.

While base color is still on, apply toner at the bowl on wet hair: equal parts Violet Manic Panic and Clear for five to 10 minutes with no peroxide catalyst (this makes a more pastel color). Apply to all the hair—color will grab on the ends only.

Now take a curling iron and “set” the hair. Pull out from the scalp, wrapping away from the face.

“ This is for the girl who isn’t afraid to commit to a look. I scissor-over-combed her hair in front of one ear, then cut the rest in a ’70-inspired diagonal and horizontal Dorothy Hamill wedge. Her color is nontraditional, but still easy on the eyes, melting from one to another.” —Matthew Morris Black satin and patent bustier, silk shorts, leggings and belt by Emporio Armani; earrings by Fenton; Cuff by Alexis Bittar.
