HOW-TO: Crunchy Ends to Dimensional Mermaid Red
Anastasia Amico, artistic color designer for John Amico, took crunchy hair and made it healthy, vibrant and RED. Amico says she was inspired by mermaid hair, and we definitely see a little of infamous Ariel in this deep, dimensional color.
Model came in with 1/2-inch new growth with 3N and permanent previous color of 1N on midstrand.
GET THE COLOR
STEP 1: Pre-lighten existing colored hair with a soap-cap of 20-volume enzymes, John Amico Green Bleaching Sands and John Amico EPA Shampoo. Formula was a 1:1:1 ratio (30g + 30g + 30g).
STEP 2: Process 45 minutes until hair is level 6 at room temperature.
GET THE STYLE
STEP 1: Blow dry with JALYD SS Fluid and John Amico Smoothie Super-Charged Straightener.
STEP 2: Flatiron fringe and base of hair.
STEP 3: Curl bottom half of hair. Use John Amico Curling Iron Texturizer (CIT) to set curls and John Amico 25-Hour Hairspray to hold back-combing.
STEP 4: Iron front piece in an s-wave formation for a glam finish.
