Formula How-To: Stormy Gunmetal by Kenra

Victoria Wurdinger | October 28, 2015 | 1:37 PM

When coupled with the right skin tone, silver hues are not only stunning and fashion-forward, but also very wearable.

 

FORMULAS & APPLICATION:

 

Natural level 7

 

Formula 1: Kenra Color No Ammonia Lightener with 20-volume developer, mixed in equal parts

 

Formula 2: 1 oz Rapid Toner with 2 oz 9-volume Activator

 

Formula 3: 2 oz Kenra Color Permanent 7SM (Silver Metallic) with 2 oz 10-volume developer

 

Formulas 4a and 4b: 1 oz Permanent 7SM + 1 oz 10-volume developer—diffuse to (4b) 1 oz Permanent 8VM (Violet Metallic) with 1 oz 10-volume developer

 

Formula 5: 1 4/5 oz. Permanent 7SM + 1/5 oz Permanent Blue Booster with 2 oz 10-volume developer

 

1. Apply Formula 1 to all the hair and pre-lighten to the desired level. Then rinse, shampoo and tone with Formula 2. Shampoo, rinse and dry hair completely.

 

2. Create a horizon (circular shape) on the crown then create two triangular shapes—one on each side of the horizon.

 

3. Apply Formula 3 to all the hair outside the horizon and outside the triangles.

 

4. Apply Formula 5 to each triangle using a diagonal skip-slice application. Then apply Formula 4a between the foils within the triangles.

 

5. Within the horizon, apply Formulas 4a and 4b using a seamless diffusion application. Process 30 minutes, shampoo and rinse.
