At the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards in Los Angeles, two young actresses debuted new pastel locks that look perfectly fresh for spring.  PRAVANA Stylist Jamie Muniz shares formula and steps for recreating these soft finishes using PRAVANA ChromaSilk VIVIDS.

Disney actress Debby Ryan shared her transformation via Instagram before her orange carpet debut.

1. Pre-lighten to a level 10 using Pure Light Power Lightener and preferred choice of developer

2. Shampoo and dry the hair completely.

3. Combine 10 parts VIVIDS Pink, five parts VIVIDS Clear and one part VIVIDS Silver.

4. In a separate bowl, combine 10 parts PASTELS Luscious Lavender and two parts VIVIDS Silver.

4. Apply formula one and formula two to alternating strands for a multi-dimensional look.

5. Process 20 to 30 minutes at room temperature.

6. Rinse with cool water and shampoo lightly, condition and protect with VIVIDS Color Protect aftercare products.

For the weekend’s festivities, including the iHeartRadio Music Awards in addition to the KCA, Modern Family’s middle sister Ariel Winter added blue strands to her long, dark locks. Incorporating two hot spring trends, vibrant pastels with a touch of silver, the combination came together beautifully to complete Winter’s look.

To recreate her blue peek-a-boo, Muniz recommends the below formula, using PRAVANA ChromaSilk VIVIDS including PASTELS and NEONS:

1. Pre-lighten desired sections of hair to a level 10 using Pure Light Power Lightener and preferred choice of developer

2. Shampoo and dry the hair completely.

3. Combine three oz. PASTELS Blissful Blue with one oz. VIVIDS Clear, two drops of NEONS Blue and one drop VIVIDS Silver then apply from mid-shaft to ends.  

5. Process 20 to 30 minutes at room temperature.

6. Rinse with cool water and shampoo lightly, condition and protect with VIVIDS Color Protect aftercare products.
