The team used Deepshine direct blue and purple on pre-lightened hair, mixed with clear to create a subtle multi-tonal color effect. Aquage Defining Gel helped create the tight, coiled strands around her face, and kept the back loose and natural. They finished the look with Aquage Beyond Shine, diffusing with the BabylissPRO Rapido Dryer.
