What could be better than rich, iridescent lavender melting into a steely gray? This stunning color creation from Jaymz Marsters is a true multi-tonal gem. Pulling inspiration from Japanese culture and fashion, Jaymz incorporated these concepts together to create a truly unique color effect. “It’s becoming more and more popular to try and stand out as much as possible, and people are finding that the best way to express themselves is through their hair,” notes Jaymz. “I like to keep my clients colors fresh and forever changing so they never slip below the radar.” Here, Jaymz shares his frosted metallic formula so you can keep your clients looking fresh at all times.

FORMULA STEPS

1. With his client looking for a style change, Jaymz removed any excess length he had to reduce product waste before starting on the color. First he prepped the hair with Formula A by soaking the hair, then drying the product in.

 

 

2. Apply Formula B to midlengths and ends and process for 5 minutes. Then Apply Formula B to the root area for another 10 minutes, avoiding any fresh regrowth. Then shampoo the hair with a clarifying shampoo and dry.

 

 

3. Repeat Step 2 until the old direct dye has been removed.

 

4. Due to the heavy green pigment in the previous color, the blonde was left with a lime green sheen. To remove the green apply Formula C to the green areas on towel-dried hair. Keep a close eye on the hair, then rinse, condition and dry once the unwanted green tone has been canceled out.

 

 

5. Apply Formula D to the root area following a normal regrowth application. Use a towel to wipe your hands, comb and tint brush to avoid contaminating the ends between sections.

 

 

6. Apply Formula E to the next 2 to 3 inches, overlapping into the previous step, blending where the colors meet using your fingers to smudge.

 

 

7. Apply Formula F to the remaining hair overlapping into Step 6. Repeat the same technique to blend the two colors together. Allow the color to process for 15 minutes, then reapply Formula F from the ends up to where Formula D finished. Remember to blend the colors using your fingers and process for another 10 minutes.

 

 

8. Once developed, lightly dampen the hair at the bowl and emulsify Formula D into Formula E, then rinse immediately. Shampoo using Affinage Cool Blonde & Condition. Finish the cut, blow-dry using BLONDME Color Correction Spray Conditioner Cool Ice and Fudge Salt Spray, then style as desired and finish with Fudge Headshine.
