Victoria Wurdinger | October 31, 2017 | 1:18 PM

Ajisai, Japanese for hydrangea, combines a delicate pink and piercing blue to create a fiercely feminine look. Hoyu’s Glamage Hair Manicure, which contains floral scents, adds an aromatic element to this autumn flower inspired style.

Formula & Application:
Natural level 3

Formula 1: 3.5 oz Promaster Powder Bleach with 7 oz Hoyu Promaster 20-volume developer
Formula 2: 2.1 oz Glamage Hair Manicure 00 (Clear) + 0.2 oz 52 (Sweet Pink)
Formula 3: 2.8 oz 00 (Clear) + 0.1 oz 52 (Sweet Pink)
Formula 4: 5.3 oz 56 (Marine Blue)

1. Apply Formula 1 from base to ends. Process 30 minutes, then shampoo and dry completely.
2. Repeat step 1.
3. Divide the hair in half with a center parting. Apply Formula 2 to the left half of the head, working off the scalp, from the base slightly down the hair shaft. Then apply Formula 3 to the ends of the left half, as you work in sections. Complete the entire side in this manner.
4. Now move to the right side and apply Formula 4 from base to ends. Process under heat 20 minutes, then cool for 10 minutes, shampoo and condition.
