HOW-TO: Darkly Intense Peacock Highlights by Joico
Joico Artist Stella Livoti keeps a watchful eye on the Paris fashion runways—it’s there that she often finds her muse. This season, it was the spring Chanel collection that ignited her imagination and informed her exciting new collection. “The patterns were incredible,” she notes. “And the fabrics were so heavily layered. The shapes were created by color—pastels, acid punk shades, neons—but no matter what, the fabrics really moved. That’s what I wanted to achieve with this haircolor!”
Color Description: Darkly intense with an artful combination of color that evokes the juxtaposition of oil and water.

Joico Color Intensity Accent Formulas:
Application: Create a diamond-shape top section and pre-lighten. Subdivide the prelightened section into 15 panels. On each panel, apply a random combination of one of the four Color Intensity shades. Apply two inches of your first color choice, beginning at the scalp, then apply your second color choice to the remainder of the section, carefully blending the two. Continue applying two shades to each panel, carefully blending. After every third panel, omit a thin slice. Continue until all of the panels are complete and apply the base color to remaining strands.
Style: On damp hair, apply Joico Power Whip Whipped Foam to roots and Smooth Cure Leave-In Rescue Treatment to lengths. Blow dry and finish with Joico Power Spray Fast-Drying Finishing Spray.
