COLOR CORRECTION: Homemade Purple To Platinum

Maggie Mulhern | December 1, 2014 | 9:33 AM

 

Rebecca Taylor (@Vividartistichairdesign), owner of Vivid Artistic Hair Design of Pensacola, Florida, was not overly concerned when her client was "over" her home refreshed, proud purple hair. Taylor effectively offered this fashion color to platinum reversion...accomplished in one appointment/same day.

"The client refreshed her violet Pravana Vivids on her compromised platinum hair one week prior to her appointment with me," says Taylor. Here she offers the HOW TO on this correction:

Step 1: Apply Pravana 000/20 volume with Olaplex to remove the first round of Vivids. ("It started removing the color before I had even finished applying the formula...within 10 minutes"). At this point the color ends up a faint seafoam green.

Step 2:  Rinse, dry, and apply your favorite lightener with 20 volume developer to the regrowth. Process to a pale blonde.

Step 3: For the last 5 minutes apply the same lightener with 20 volume mixed with Olaplex to the mid lengths and ends until the faint green disappears.

Step 4:  Rinse and apply Wella Color Touch 9/03 natural/gold to glaze. Process for 10 minutes and then rinse and shampoo.
