Fall is in the hair with this one—literally! And how could it not be? Fall is one of the best seasons to draw hair inspiration from and DJ Victory (@djvictory) from Enzo’s Salon & Spa in Cleveland, Ohio, nailed it with this falling leaves-inspired pixie. And you guys couldn’t agree more! With more than 10,000(!) likes on Instagram and Facebook, we knew we HAD to get this seasonally-appropriate color formula. Check it out!
 

 

 

Natural/Starting Level: “When she came in for this appointment, she was a faded PRAVANA ChromaSilk 6.46 with about six highlights that were sliced and weaved,” notes DJ. “I do this client’s hair every five weeks and lately I’ve been doing a Level 6 copper on her.”

PRAVANA Color Formulas
Formula A: ChromaSilk 6.46 + 10-volume developer

Formula B: ChromaSilk 7.43 + 20-volume developer


DJ shared the diagram she used to plan the color formulas and technique.

 

 

Application
1.
Apply Formula A at the roots, completely pulling the color through the sides and back of the hair.

2. Foil in Formula B and pull some of Formula A through the hair. Process for 30 minutes. “I didn’t add any additional highlights because I just used what we had from the last appointment,” shares DJ. “By adding the ChromaSilk 7.43 (light copper) and pulling the ChromaSilk 6.46 (dark copper) through the blonde, it became extremely dimensional.”

Pricing: $146. “My prices are á la carte, so in this case I charged for a root touchup which is $58,” says DJ. “Then when I’m doing a few foils, I charge per foil, which is $7. My haircuts are $60.”

Total Process Time: 1.5 hours
