HOW-TO: Magenta/Pink Hair Color Using Pravana & ColorMelting
Hair Colorist Shannon Gabbour created this look for her client, (and new mom!) Sammy. “It was quite a process!” she says. Gabbour’s color inspiration came from this gorgeous orchid bouquet. We think she was pretty spot on with the final result!
GET THE LOOK:
STEP 1: "I used the Pravana Artificial Hair Color Extractor to remove her level 4 violet brown base."
STEP 2: "Next, I used Redken's Flash Lift Lightener with 10 vol to even out and lift her from regrowth to ends and 20 vol for her regrowth."
STEP 3: "I used the Pravana Silk Degrees Treatment to even out the hair's porosity. I wanted to make sure her Vivids would process evenly and last as long as possible."
STEP 4: "For the hair color application, I sectioned the hair from the recession of the front hair line on her left side at an angle around her head toward the back middle of her right ear. I used Pravana Vivids Violet in that section."
STEP 5: "Next, I moved to the top of the head and applied the foils in a pinwheel shape. I did two violet slices, and applied Pravana Pink to each foil in-between. Then, I applied one Pravana Magenta foil and continued the pattern."
STEP 6: "On the sides, I used the same pattern, but foiled vertically around the head. I applied Pravana Pink between each foil and at the root of each foil. Then, it color melted with either the violet or magenta sections (to avoid any lines of demarcation).
