You're going to hear the phrase "Metallic Haircolor" buzzing around a lot this fall.

Pravana predicts Metallic Haircolor will be one of the season's hottest trends. Colorists can achieve the look with the new ChromaSilk Express Tones. Created by Pravana in collaboration with hair guru Guy Tang to coincide with Pravana's Pure Enlightenment Balayage Kit, the Express Tones are gentle and ammonia-free, leaving hair with a shiny, metallic result in under five minutes.

These hair top coats come in eight intermixable shades for customizable color following Balayage, highlighting or blonding services. The Express Tones come in Violet, Ash, Pearl, Copper, Gold and Clear.


To get the metallic look using the Express Tones, combine one part Express Tones to 1 1/2 parts ChromaSilk Zero Lift then apply to damp hair. Leave on for five minutes for a gorgeous sheen, or up to 10 minutes if you’re looking for an even deeper tone. By adding Clear to your formula, you can achieve a shinier, metallic result on strands.


Pravana Artistic Director and Education Leader R Zzio Gala demonstrated (see slideshow) how to create the metallic, muted look. On Level 10 strands, Zzio applied ChromaSilk Express Tones in Violet, Ash, Pearl and a customized Ash+Clear shade to different sections of hair and allowed them to process for five minutes. Then, the hair was styled.
