Formula How-To: Twilight Sky by Pravana

Victoria Wurdinger | October 28, 2015 | 1:58 PM

With the new Pravana Vivids Black, multiple shades of smokey grays and crisp carbons, deep shadowy violets and muted lavenders collide. Just a few drops of black added to an existing formula creates a deeper, darker version of itself.

 

FORMULAS & APPLICATION:

 

Natural level 6

 

Formula 1: Pravana Pure Light Power Lightener and choice of developer

 

Formula 2: 56 g Pastels Pretty in Pink + 16 g Vivids Magenta + 72 g Vivids Silver + 30 g Vivids Black

 

Formula 3: 100 g Pastels Pretty in Pink + 1 g Vivids Violet + 3 g Vivids Black

 

Formula 4: 20 g Pastels Blissful Blue + 28 g Pastel Luscious Lavender + 16 g Pastel Pretty in Pink + four drops of Vivids Black + two drops Vivids Violet

 

Formula 5: 60 g Pastels Luscious Lavender + 8 g Vivids Pink + 4 drops Vivids Violet + 2 g Vivids Black

 

Formula 6: 100 g Pastels Luscious Lavender + 5 g Vivids Black

 

Formula 7: 60 g Pastels Luscious Lavender

 

1. Use Formula 1 to pre-lighten the hair to a level 10. Then shampoo, condition and dry hair completely.

 

2. Starting in the back, part out a triangular section from the bottom of the ears to the occipital bone. Apply Formula 2 to this section from roots to ends.

 

3. Moving up the head, take another 2-inch wide section that follows the previous triangular parting. Apply Formula 3 to this section from roots to ends.

 

4. Continue working up the head in the same manner, creating 2-inch-wide sections and following the previous triangular parting. Rotate o the ears like the hands of a clock. Apply the remaining formulas in numeric order, fi nishing with Formula 7 at the front hairline. Process 20-30 minutes. Then shampoo, condition and protect with Pravana Vivids Color Protect.
