Oceanic Blonde

Pearlescent blonde fades into depths of maritime blues and violets in this look inspired by the cool colors of the sea. Part of the Soleil Trend Collection by Abraham Sprinkle, it was created to balance the heat from the colors in the rest of the collection.

  • Step 1

    Create a section by making a clean horizontal divide from above the ear to above the ear. Apply Formula A to this area (1).

  • Step 2 steps

    Create two upward-pointing triangles by drawing a zigzag at the base of the neck. Apply Formula B in a classic tint application to these sections (4) and isolate with foils.

  • Step 3

    Part a straight line an inch above the tip of the section 4 triangles and apply Formula C to this area (3), isolating with foils.

  • Step 4

    Divide the remainder of the hair (2) into squares. In each square, apply Formula A to the new growth area only, then paint Formula D from the ends upward until the two fuse together in varying ways. Process 30 minutes.
