this week we’re doing our new talent madison’s hair. as a new member of the nvenn team, the only way to give a warm welcome is to do a video! we’re taking her from copper with a brown shaded root and creating a beautifully blended RED PLUM color that’s perfect for fall.
both of the colors we’re using are level 5 colors. we’re going to stagger the dark to make sure it’s BLENDED and fades into an INTENSE RED color, as well as add a veil of dark to the crown of her head.
as always- the process begins with SECTIONING the hair into 4 quadrants.
we love using shapes to create DIMENSION in the hair. this can be easily done by envisioning the shapes you want to utilize while sectioning the hair. because we want to create this dark veil, we’ve left a crescent moon at the front of madison’s hair. the dark hair will fall over the red panel in the fringe creating dimension between the colors.
we’re going to use a 3.5 for the roots for the PLUM and on the ends, a 5.666 for the INTENSE RED.
we’re going to use our 3.5 to color the roots. you want to remember to STAGGER the dark from section to section. not only will this help the COLOR BLEND, it will make sure that your color looks NATURAL.
start from the bottom. we typically extend the root on the very bottom section to help define the color. make sure you hold your brush VERTICALLY and FEATHER the color.
with each new section, variate the length of dark color down the section. where one will be 1 ½ inches, the next 3 inches. take a mental note on each section’s length to make sure you can replicate the results on the other side of the head.
PROTIP: keep your gloves clean! color bleeds and in order to keep the integrity of the style, you don’t want to put dark plum where it doesn’t belong. if you need to, switch to a new pair.
with the ROOT COLOR all applied, you’re ready to color on the INTENSE RED.
we’ve talked quite a lot about this veil and now it’s time to do it! as you can see, we’ve pulled the hair back and painted the pulled back crescent moon section DARK PLUM.
for the front towards her bangs, we’re using the RED.
now you’re ready to pull out the 5.66. go section by section and MELT the color into the ends. make sure you’re really BLENDING where the colors meet by pulling DOWNWARD with a VERTICAL BRUSH.
you’ll repeat this blending process for every section on the head until the head is entirely covered in color. let the color process for 20 MINUTES and then WASH the hair out.
BEFORE WE BLOWDRY, we’re going to make sure we protect madison’s newly colored hair from the heat. we’ll start with ‘replenish’, our hair restoration oil. this lightweight oil restores hair’s MOISTURE and PROTECTS the hair from heat. then we mist in a layer of ‘protect’ throughout the hair to protect madison’s hair from the heat of the blowdryer.
next, we’re going to apply ‘fix’ flexible hairspray to her roots to add a little volume and body while we blowdry. now we’re ready to BLOWDRY her hair.
with her hair dry, we’re going to add a little ‘smooth’. this is one of our favorite products! not only does it smell delicious, it’s a HAIR DEFRIZZER and SPLIT END MENDER. (and it smells AMAZING.)
