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.

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.
