Rhode Island-based stylist Christopher Stanton (@honeybeedoeshair) is a wizard when it comes to vibrant colors and curly styles. Which is probably why this neon pink transformation is so MAJOR. Christopher even received a #ONESHOT nomination for Transformation of the Year for this shot. Here’s how he did it.

HOW-TO STEPS

1

Take a profile and radial parting to create four quadrants. Apply Formula A to the root area.

2

In each quadrant, take ½-inch diagonal-back sections and alternate Formula B and Formula C in back-to-back weaves, separating every other section with meche strips. “I also freehand painted some pieces in each section,” shares Chris, “color melting B into C. I wanted this color to be a ‘controlled chaos’ kind of look…the control would be the traditional foiling, and the chaos would be the random color melted pieces.”

3

Process for 35 minutes. Rinse and shampoo with DevaCurl No-Poo and condition with One Condition Decadence. Set with DevaCurl SuperCream Coconut Curl Styler.
