Van Tibolli Color How-To: Warm and Cool Reds

Elizabeth Jakaitis | May 11, 2015 | 10:08 AM

Misha Belfer, International creative director for Van Tibolli Corp., created a warm/cool mix for a stunning effect.

“When clients who have darker natural levels want vibrant reds, keep the base color close to natural and you’ll achieve less noticeable outgrowth,” Belfer says. “A variety of color placements can be used to create vibrancy, dimension and richness. For this particular look, I added a cool quality to the base color by using a Violet Mix Tone. This created a great backdrop for the vibrant, pre-lightened sections, which were toned with a warm Red Mix Tone. The combination of warm and cool reds creates a beautiful end result.”

FORMULA AND APPLICATION

Natural level 4

Formula 1: 20 g of 3.6 GK Hair Dark Red Brown + 20 g of 5.56 Mahogany + 10g Violet Mix Tone with 125 g of 20-volume creme developer

Formula 2: 20 g Lightening Powder with Juvexin + 40 g of 20-volume creme developer

Formula 3: 20 g Red Mix Tone + 60 g of 10-volume creme developer

1. Apply Formula 1 to the regrowth area.

2. Then use Formula 2 in foil highlights. Working through the top section of the head, take thin, diagonal partings, leaving ¼-inch sections of hair in-between the foils. Process simultaneously for 30 minutes; shampoo and rinse.

3. Apply Formula 3 from base to ends, thoroughly saturating the hair. Process 30 minutes, then rinse.
