COLOR FORMULAS

  • Formula A
    1 oz PRAVANA ChromaSilk Permanent Creme Hair Color 5.11 + 5.7 + 7.7 + 4.5 oz 10-volume PRAVANA Crème Developer
  • Formula B

FORMULA STEPS

1. Section hair from ear to ear. Leave the back half out.

 

2. Starting at the nape, apply Formula A 1 inch at the base of the hair. Continue applying Formula A in V-shaped sections along the hairline for a softer color melt.

 

Pro Tip: For longer hair, bring color down two inches to add more dimension.

 

3. From the midshaft to the ends, color melt Formula B onto the hair. Use the fingers to blend in Formula A to remove lines of demarcation. 

 

4. Let the color process at room temperature for 30-45 minutes.

 

5. Proceed to shampoo, condition and style the hair.
