TRANSFORMATION: Virgin To Blue/Green Melt
Stephanie Lawrence (@hair_princess_steph) of Lush Hair Salon, Londonderry, NH, has been doing hair for about 10 years but in the last 7 months has become a devotee vivid colors. Here she shares the details on this transformation of her client that had natural hair and was looking for blues and greens.
Step 1: Pre-lighten with All Nutrient lightener with 20 volume on the roots and 40 volume with B3 (which dropped it to 30 volume) on the ends. Shampoo and dry and prep with Moringaplex.
Roots: Pravana Green with a dot of Pravana black additive.
Pravana Blue mixed with Mystical Mint
Pravana Green mixed with Mystical Mint
Pravana Green mixed with black additive
Pravana Neon Green
Pravana Mystical Mint
Step 3: Alternate shades throughout: "The technique we used is what I call ribbon coloring. It's a play off of the sand art technique. You apply your root color and drag it out about an inch and a half. You then take about a 1" section and melt the color into the root then do a 'ribbon' of one solid color all the way down that section."
Step 4: Cut and style the hair (design was done by @tmarie_hair)
