FORMULA: Neon Peacock

Maggie Mulhern | October 26, 2016 | 11:43 AM

Amber Mahaffey (@coloroutsidethelineshs), Surfside Beach, SC, is exploring (obviously successfully!) the new neon shades and shares the formula for her latest neon peacock:

-Apply Redken Flash Lift blended with 30 volume developer and Olaplex. Process 45 minutes under cap to hold heat. Rinse.

-Tone roots with Redken Shades EQ 9v for 3 minutes. Rinse and apply Olaplex #2. Blow dry.

-Mix 1 tube Pravana Wild Orchid and 1 tube Amythest and apply to the root. Drag down to mids and apply in about 6 foils around the face and in back.

-Mix new Kenra Neons Blue in one bowl and Purple in a second. Melt these shades down on remaining hair. Process for 30 minutes.

-Rinse in cold water and condition only.

How-To: Opal Metallic Blend

Laila Pettersen, @laila.wella, is an educator for Wella Professional, Norway. Just like gems form over time, Pettersen’s creation required patience and skill. She wanted to take her client from dull to shining brilliance and used Wella’s Opal-Essence shades, applied in sections with a gloved hand, to achieve the end result.
