Get The Look:

Aurora

“We wanted to bring out the brilliant color in the hair through light and movement,” says Deb Gavin of her 2014 Prismatic Collection. This look fuses hues of violet, blue and ash on a creative, side-swept style to mimic the effect of the famed Northern Lights.

  • Step 1

    After cleansing with Keratin Complex® shampoo, carve asymmetrical triangular sections throughout the head, following the pattern shown in the diagram.

  • Step 2

    Paint sections 1 from scalp to ends with Formula A. Isolate with foils.

  • Step 3

    In sections 2, apply Formula B from scalp to mid-length and then marry Formula C to the ends, using a feathering technique to blend the shades. Isolate with foils.

  • Tip

    To maintain the more vibrant shade without blending in too much of the deeper, paint the lighter shade (B) first, then lightly diffuse the darker shade (C).

  • Step 4

    On sections 3, use the same technique as Step 3, applying Formula D from scalp to mid-length and diffusing Formula C to the ends. Isolate with foils. Process for 35 minutes.

  • Step 5

    Remove the foils from a single section and rinse well; repeat this rinsing method in the remaining isolated sections. This will ensure no transfer of color between sections.

  • Step 6

    Cleanse and condition with Keratin Complex shampoo and conditioner.
