From previously-lightened blonde to opal white to pink ice. Sometimes getting the perfect shade requires multiple formulas (four to be exact!), and we have all the details below (including a sneak peek at the new CHI Chromashine color line!). Here’s how Farouk Global Board Artist Anna Cantu created this serious shade of pink perfection.

COLOR FORMULAS

  • Formula A:

    CHI Chromashine Pearl White + 1 drop Shades Of Gray

  • Formula B:

    Pearl White + 1 drop Out Of The Blue

  • Formula C:

    Pearl White + 1 drop Viva Violet

  • Formula D:

FORMULA STEPS

1. The model was previously prelightened all over. 

 

2. Apply Formula A throughout most of the head, starting in the back and working from ear to ear. Then move toward the front hairline.

 

3. Randomly apply Formula B and C using fine sections. This creates a seamless blend of color that will move nicely when the hair is dry.

In-process with Formulas A, B and C.

 

4. Then blow-dry, style and grab pictures for Instagram!

After shot featuring Formulas A, B and C. After getting pics of this color, Anna wanted to change it up and create a pink hue off of the opal base. Step 5 explains how she did it!

 

5. Apply Formula D at the base to create a shadow root. Leave on for 15 minutes. Then, mix the leftover color with warm water and apply the mixture to the rest of the hair (mids and ends) blending with your fingers. Let process for 5 minutes, then rinse out completely.
