OMG: No Prelightening Required For These Fashion Colors!

What if we told you the above before-and-after shot used ZERO lightener and was done in a SINGLE process? Would you believe us? If you don’t, keep scrolling—we have the receipts and all the deets straight from fashion color queen @rebeccataylorhair!

 

Here’s the scoop on how this is possible: Trillion Tones by Rebecca Taylor, the first-ever hybrid color line. It’s direct dye-based that can be mixed as permanent or demi-permanent by mixing pigments with an alkaline base and developers. By formulating properly, you can achieve fashion colors that don’t need to be applied on a Level 10 base (they can lift 3-4 levels!) AND that last longer because they are driven into the cortex via oxidation—super cool!

I’m just gonna leave this little morsel right here 💁🏻‍♀️🌈 Color on @dhea.anijarv done in one step/no bleaching with @trilliontones. Last time I did hair this long was on @treelocks in Australia and it literally took me two days AND I had to bleach first (even though she was the same starting level as this model). This took me four hours because the color lifted/deposited simultaneously. Life changed.

One step, permanent creative color applied to level 1-2 natural base (with 25-30% grey) with faded fashion color on the mids/ends…I’d call it a level 6-7 if I had to try to identify it. I used @trilliontones custom pigments with 10 strength Alkaline+10 vol+ @brazilianbondbuilder added. ZERO prelightening this sesh. I’m srsly obsessed with the options of this line. Like pretty damn shooketh 😳 I did an IG live earlier but I’ll post the whole video so you guys can peep the process ☺️🌈 I also used @trussprofessional Amino before blow drying and @sexyhair Rose Dry Oil for that shiny shine 💫 @behindthechair_com #trilliontones #truss #sexyhair #longhair #onestep #hybridcolor #haircolor #legitlifechanging #colorfulhair #windwhipped #healthyhair

Here’s an example of a one/step regrowth and faded fashion color refresh using @trilliontones for our @brazilianbondbuilder event in Amsterdam. She had a level 3 regrowth and pretty compromised ends. I opted out of any bleach for this refresh 🙅🏻‍♀️ Since her natural level was a 3 and TT can lift 3-4 levels and deposit fashion color I expected her level 3 to reach about a 6 burgundy with the hybrid (lift/deposit) formula I mixed. I still wanted a shadow root…so it ended up a way more blended and covered her grays. For everything else I mixed more like a direct dye with a little alkaline to lift/brighten the residual pigment. B3 in everything, no styling products or hot tools…just a rough dry. Took like an hour and a half total including mixing/application/processing….easy peasy fashion color refresh option 🌈 #hairstyle #hairtutorials #hairtutorial #haircolortutorial #rainbowhair #hair #transformation #beforeandafter #colormelt #extensions #hairtutorial #tutorial #stylist #hairstyle #haircolor #colorfulhair #hairvideo #hairtutorial @hudabeauty @styles.tv @hairstyles @buzzfeedvideo @styleartists @hair.video @hair.videos @hairvideodiary @hairvideosbystylists @insiderbeauty @behindthechair_com @cosmopolitan @allure @glamourmag @peinadosvideos @tutorialesvideos
