Traditionally, money pieces are a pop of light or bold color around the face that pack a dramatic punch. But this year, we’ve spotted some killer variations of this trend as an update to the ’90s color resurgence. Enter the reverse money piece. 

 

When we first saw this dark money piece look on BTC Visual Editor Meg Schipani’s (@shmeggsandbaconn) IG, we HAD to find out everything. Scroll through to get formulas, pricing and all the details you need to know for recreating this look.

 

 

What you need to know:

Meg’s client came to her requesting a nude blonde and a chocolate money piece. However, she had previously been the turquoise color melt pictured below. While it had faded quite a bit, there was still a LOT of turquoise left. After performing the soap cap, there was still too much turquoise to have an even canvas. That’s when Meg and her client decided to improvise.

 

Meg gave her client two options: Leave the pale mint and try to lift it out at a later session or switch the plan to a butter-into-rose color melt, with the idea that the rose would cancel the green out as it faded and leave her with the all-over blonde she originally wanted. So that’s what they decided and the results were STUNNING.

FORMULA STEPS

1. Apply Formula A to the regrowth and lift to a Level 9/10.

 

2. Add shampoo to Formula A and work through the ends to remove remaining pigment. 

 

Pro Tip: Because this client had previous green vivid color residue that needed to come out to achieve the desired look, Meg used this mix to get it to a pale mint and then built pink into the ends formula, with the goal of it eventually fading to a nude blonde. 

 

3. Rinse, shampoo and section out the money piece and clip it out of the way.

 

4. Apply Formula B to the regrowth and drag it down a few inches.

 

5. Apply Formula C to ends and work up into Formula B for a seamless blend.

 

6. Apply Formula D to the money piece, taking caution to not get it on any other parts of the hair.

 

7. Let Formulas B, C and D process for 25 minutes. 

 

8. Have your client face the shampoo bowl and rinse the front money piece out first. 

 

9. Rinse the rest of the hair and apply TIGI® Professional Copyright Custom Care™ Treatment Base with the Custom Care™ Repair Booster all over and comb through. Process for 5 minutes. 

 

10. Rinse, blow dry and style as desired.
