Stunning Color Effects With Pravana's ChromaSilk VIVIDS.

Coloring hair with vibrant colors is not something new anymore, but continues to show up everywhere! Pravana's ChromaSilk VIVIDS line has the most vibrant color selections for stunning color effects I have seen. These colors have been really popular with the Ombre look and also the new Urban Ombre, which is darker on top and fades to lighter on the bottom.

The Urban Ombre:

1. Create the mixture of the lightest color you will be using. This will be the color you will end with at the tips of the hair.

2. Begin in the front and apply the lightest shade onto the pre-lightened hair. Deciding where you want the colors to blend is by artistic preference, but the lightest shade should be applied through the area you want the blending to begin.

3. Create your darker shade mixture.

4. Start applying the darker shade from the area you want this color to be visible through to the previously applied lighter color. Once you have applied the darker color, 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 you are working with.

IMPORTANT: Clean your hands between each section to avoid transfer of color from one section to the next.

5. Shampoo with your choice of Sulfate-Free Shampoo and Conditioner. Rinse with cool water.

6. Dry and style as desired.
