Fast Fashion Color—Create Silver Lavender In Under 5 Minutes!

Ready to start creating fast fashion colors? Like creating a shade of lavender in less than five minutes? If you need some proof that this IS possible before becoming a true believer, keep scrolling, because we’re about to break it all down.


BTC team member Sami Schneider (@samihairmagic) recently took one of her blonde clients to a lust-worthy shade of lilac using Watercolors Intense Shampoo (a color-depositing shampoo with serious intensity!).


Scroll through Sami’s Insta post below to see the before-and-after shots, plus the in-process video.


Products Used


Get The Look: 

  1. Starting on previously-lightened hair, apply Watercolors Intense Silver with a dash of Watercolors Intense Purple.
  2. Apply the shampoo thoroughly and let sit for 3 to 5 minutes before rinsing out. The longer the shampoo is on the head, the deeper the color will be. 
  3. To create an even richer color outcome, repeat Steps 1 and 2. 


How It Works:

  • The shampoo works best on Level 7 hair or higher. 
  • The vibrancy depends on how long the shampoo processes on the hair.
  • Each shampoo application deposits more color, and colors can be mixed together. 
  • The color lasts about two to three washes before it starts to fade.
  • Watercolors Intense Shampoo is ideal for clients who want to maintain fashion colors at home, or for a quick, commitment-free color service.

@deathbycouture’s Lilac Shadow Root + Silver Ends


QUICK TIP: Color the hair first, then lock it in with Watercolors Intense Shampoo! Here’s how:

  • First, color the hair and create the shadow root using different purple, gray and silver color formulas. Then let process. 
  • Next, to solidify the tone on the mids and ends, apply Watercolors Intense Shampoo Silver on damp hair—run the shampoo through the hair, without lathering it—and let sit for 5 minutes. Then rinse. 


@elissawolfe’s Purple + Pink Combo


QUICK TIP: Mix two Watercolors Intense Shampoos together to create a color melt effect. Here’s how:

  • On prelightened hair, apply Watercolors Intense Shampoo Purple at the roots and Watercolors Intense Shampoo Pink from the mids to the ends, leave on for five minutes. 
  • Skip the conditioner and rinse for a blended, shiny end result.
