Go Green with L’ANZA VIBES!

 

Advanced Healing Artist Catlin Weston is back with another creation using VIBES High-Impact Hair Color. Inspired by Greenery, Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year, and her client who requested hair “like the color of a blade of grass in Fall, with accents of a unique blue”.

Inspiration: PANTONE Greenery with L’ANZA VIBES

DECOLORIZER FORMULA

30g Healing Color Powder Decolorizer + 60 Volume Healing Color Developer

 

VIBES FORMULAS

Green VIBES: 20g Yellow + 15g Blue + 10g Clear

VIBES: Equal parts Blue + Teal

Artist Note: To create variation in depth and tone, do not mix the two shades together completely.

Model Began with a Natural Level 7 Hair

Step 1: Start with a heavy Balayage of the Decolorizer Formula.  Turn brush perpendicular to make peaks and valleys higher toward the face, cascading back.  Apply lighter to ends, peaking higher toward the face. Process until hair reaches a Level 9, and rinse.

Cleanse and condition with Healing ColorCare Shampoo and Conditioner.

Step 2: Beginning on a diagonal, take ½” sections in back-to-back foils and Balayage Green VIBES Formula, peaking higher, toward the face.

Step 3:  Using your own creativity, apply Blue VIBES Formula visually to accent the all-over color.  For every 2 BLUE foils, apply 1 TEAL foil.  (Remember: Blue and Teal are not completely mixed!)  Process for 15 minutes.

Step 4: At the color bowl, apply Green VIBES Formula over the entire head while other foils are processing, leave in for another 10 minutes, and rinse.

Cleanse and condition with Healing ColorCare Shampoo and Conditioner.
