HOW-TO STEPS

  • 1

    Mix Pravana Pure Light Power Lightener with chosen PravanaChromaSilk Creme Developer and prelighten hair to desired level. For this photo the model was prelightened at a Level 7 from the roots to midshaft, and a Level 9-10 towards the ends.

  • 2

    Section hair into quadrants.

  • 3

    Create the ChromaSilk VIVIDS mixture of the lightest color. This will be the color at the tips of the hair.

    • Formula A (roots to midshaft):

      1oz. Pravana ChromaSilk VIVIDS Violet

    • Formula B (ends):

      1 oz. Pravana ChromaSilk VIVIDS Silver

    4

    Begin in the back and apply Formula B from the midlength of the hair to the ends. Deciding where the colors blend is an artistic preference, but the lightest color should be applied through the area you want the blending to begin.

    • Formula B (ends):

    5

    Create the darker ChromaSilk VIVIDS mixture. This will be the color applied from the roots to midshaft.

  • 6

    Start applying Formula A from the roots to the previously applied lighter mixture.

  • 7

    Once the darker mixture is applied, use your fingers to work the darker color through the lighter color to create a blended effect. The amount of hair that is created by the blending of the two colors is up to you and will typically depend on the length of the hair.

    Note: It is important to have a clean towel on hand to clean your hands between each section to avoid unintended transfer of color.
