COLOR: Tie-Dye How-To

Before he became a two-time winner at Behindthechair’s ONESHOT Awards for the Hot ShotRainbow Shot of the Year and Extensions Shot of the Year, Rickey Zito (also know as @hairgod_zito on Instagram to his more than 128k followers) he was creating a stunning tie-dye color melt using PRAVANA VIVIDS. Inspired by the Spring 2016 New York Fashion Week runways and 1970’s tie-dye paint, Rickey created a subtle rainbow contrast on his blonde model’s hair to mimic the effect using a far-out tie-dye technique that allows you to create patterns and apply vibrant colors next to even the lightest of hair. Here’s how you can pull off this fun color melt on your blonde and brunettes who live for extreme color.

    Loosely tie cloth over the elastic hair bands. This leaves a portion of the hair uncolored.

    Apply two colors in each section. If you use two colors, blend ever so slightly where they meet.

  • 5

    Continue working up the head.

  • 6

    Process at room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes.

  • 7

    Rinse thoroughly with no fear of transfer thanks to VIVIDS Locked-In. Use VIVIDS Color Protect After Care.
