CHI Color Director Richard Jordan lives in Amsterdam, a place that doesn’t see much sunshine during fall and winter. But Jordan doesn’t care because he’s worked out a way to infuse the sun into his clients’ color! His secret sunshine weapon? The new color technology in CHI Chromashine intense, bold, semi-permanent hair color. “With Chromashine,” says Richard, “any shade is possible with very little inventory.”

See how Jordan combines shades of violet, orange, green and yellow to create this shiny, Sunrise melt.


CHI Chromashine Sunrise Color Melt


Color Formulas

Pre-Lightening: CHI Blondest Blonde + 20-Volume CHI Color Generator

Formula 1 (roots): CHI Chromashine Viva Violet + 2 drops Dangerously Red

Formula 2 (mid-shaft): CHI Chromashine Orange You Obsessed

Formula 3 (mid-shaft and parietal ridge): CHI Chromashine Grass Root + ½ oz. Pearl White

Formula 4 (ends): CHI Chromashine Mellow My Yellow


Step 1 – Section the hair in quadrants and apply Formula 1 to the root area, thoroughly saturating each subsection. Repeat this step throughout all four quadrants.

Step 2 – Once the root area is complete, move to the bottom of the nape quadrant. Leave a ½-inch space between the two colors and apply Formula 2 to the mid-shaft.

Step 3 – Begin melting Formula 1 and 2 together using a feathering technique with the color brush. To prevent bleeding, use a foil to protect the strands.

Step 4 – Continue working up towards the parietal ridge, applying Formula 3 just to the mid-shaft and Formula 4 to the ends. Leave a ½-inch space between formulas to melt the two colors together. Protect the hair color with foil and alternate this method to the top of the quadrant.

Step 5 – Repeat Steps 2 through 4 throughout the remaining quadrants.

Step 6 – Process the hair for 15 minutes; rinse thoroughly with cool water, shampoo and towel blot.

Step 7 – Apply CHI Color Lock Treatment for 5 minutes to reduce the pH, then rinse with cool water.
