HOW TO: Icy Silver

Maggie Mulhern | November 23, 2014 | 9:38 AM

Terry Savas (@terrysavas) of The Edge Hair Design, Roseburg, Oregon, really nailed this icy silver finish. "Clients like Sophie are far and few between," she says. "Creating change and fun colors is something I love to do.  I always try surround myself with inspiration, but education is key." Here Savas offers the HOW TO:

STEP 1:  Start with 1/2 inch regrowth of natural level 8.
STEP 2;  Apply Alpine lightener (blended with 20 volume developer) by Leyton House Professional on the natural regrowth. "Be careful not to overlap."
STEP 3:  Process for 30 minutes lifting to palest blonde. Shampoo and dry hair.
STEP 4: Using Pravana Vivids Silver, apply to the scalp and about an inch out.  Then comb lightly to have a little color reach the ends.
STEP 5:  Process for 25 minutes. Shampoo and condition.
STEP 6:  Cut a disconnected shattered pixie using channelling techniques  with texturizing shears.
STEP 7: Finish with Unite Texturiza.
