Pretty pastels have to have a perfect canvas, so Wella Professionals Creative Ambassador Sonya Dove and Wella Top Artist Eric Lindsey made sure to pre-treat the hair by building keratin and moisture back in before applying any color. Check out the steps for this creative color technique!

    Next, start at the nape and take ½-inch horizontal sections. Create square subsections and apply alternating formulas with a small color spatula. After the hair is completely saturated, twist the sections. This will create a cascade of pastel color. Since Color.id has been used in all of the formulas, there is no need to be concerned about bleeding or bruising of color within the root area or the subsections.
