Imagine those sweet Easter bunny pastels, only with a sleek metallic edge. That’s the direction pastel hair color is heading this spring. Paul Mitchell Professional Hair Color is on the case with the launch of three new luminous muted metallic shades in its The Demi collection—Lavender, Silver and Rose Gold.
“Stylists can use Muted Metallics as an all-over color, an accent color to bring together other tones used within the hair and a veil of color if used as a refinement to blonde,” says Colin Caruso, Artistic Director of Professional Hair Color. “The best results are on pre-lightened blonde hair. The timed intensity gives the stylist control over the degree of tonal deposit.”
“I’m obsessed with The Demi Muted Metallics,” says Elizabeth Olivia, @studiobesalon_elizabetho. “I love that it’s a ‘true-to-color’ line in the sense that you don’t have to mix various colors to get a perfect tone. They also fade true-to-tone with no brown or gold base. The sheer finish gives me tonal control on damp hair or more vibrant results on dry hair. Not to mention the shine is crazy! It helps my business because I can offer something trendy for my guests, whether it’s Rose Gold on level 7-10 or the Silver and Lavender for brighter blondes. I can easily upgrade a service in 20 minutes or less and have full trust in the formulation!”
