Jessica Price from Salon Diva in Valparaiso, IN recently created such a unique color blend, we just had to share the formula! Jessica’s client loved her Level 1 locks, but wanted to add a few secret pops of color. So Jessica got to work, using shades of violet, turquoise and rockabilly blue to create this vibrant, multi-tonal look that’s been getting all kinds of attention! Here’s how she did it.

HOW-TO STEPS

  • 1

    Lift the red from the ends of the hair using Formula A. Process for 30 minutes until the color lifts to a peachy hue.

  • 2

    Apply Formula B in peekaboo foils, just under where she normally parts her hair. 

  • 3

    Using Formulas C and D, add two more peekaboo foils on each side of her head in a diagonal upward direction, keeping the same pattern on each side—a turquoise strip on the bottom and a blue strip on top.

  • 4

    Section the hair at the bottom, and paint Formula C in the nape, below the occipital. Clip this section away.

  • 5

    Apply Formula D just above this section, and clip away. Lay a foil over the top of this section to avoid mixing the colors.

  • Make the Color Last!
    Jessica says she normally suggests lifting the hair, then waiting a week or two to add the fashion colors, making sure to do smoothing treatments during this time to smooth the hair shaft so the color won’t fade as quickly.  “If you don’t want to wait,” says Jessica, “then I suggest applying clear color all over once you finish rinsing out your fantasy colors.”
