HOW-TO: Metallic/Silver Fox Hair Color Formula

Lauren Salapatek | July 28, 2014 | 12:18 PM

Modern's Facebook recently went wild over Felix Jimenez's (Instagram's @scissor_boy8010) "Wear it Two Ways: Assymetric Color Using Pravana Vivids" look -- and now he's done it again -- except with this cool, silver and metallic color formula! The starting level for this look was a level 9-10 yellowish platinum blonde.

HOW-TO: Metallic/Silver Fox Hair Color Formula

To create this look, Jimenez used Kenra Color:

STEP 1: 3oz of 10SM + 1/2oz of 10V Demi-permanent, mix with 2& 1/2oz of 20vol. ("Note, I used more color than developer because of my clients hair porosity, and 20vol, because of my clients uneven pigmentation.")

STEP 2: Apply hair color to the entire head. Process for 40 minutes. Wash out afterwards. Shampoo and condition hair.

STEP 3: To give the hair the "glossy" look, he added a few drops of Kenra Platinum Silkening Gloss and Kenra Shine Spray. To style, he used Kenra Volume Spray 25.
