Application

Step 1: Prep the Hair

Prep the hair by spraying Purify and Revive PRIME generously throughout the hair, combing through for even distribution and allowing to sit for 3 minutes (no rinsing or shampoo required) to diminish any hard water minerals.

Step 1 Beetlejuice-Inspired Halloween VIVIDS Color Blocking

Pro Tip

Minerals are found in 85% of household water which can cause lightener to puff and swell or color to take inaccurately.

Step 2: Global Blonding

Using your favorite Global Blonding technique, pre-Lighten the hair to Level 10 utilizing the Lightening Formula.

Step 2 Beetlejuice-Inspired Halloween VIVIDS Color Blocking

Shampoo the hair with PRAVANA Intense Therapy Cleanse. Rinse, towel-dry and apply Silk Degrees Prep and Treat for 5 minutes at the basin to equalize the porosity and provide anchoring sites for your color application. Rinse and dry the hair completely.

Step 3: Sectioning

Section the hair by isolating the fringe. Take a radial parting from behind the ear to behind the ear and another parting from nose to nape to create the PRAVANA standard 4 quadrants for the rest of the hair. Isolate 3 chunky weaves at the top of each quadrant for the striped sections.

Step 4: Color Melt

Starting at the bottom of each quadrant working towards the top, take a ½” horizontal section and melt the Violet formula into the Negative Space formula, then feather the Green formula from the bottom up into the Negative Space formula. Continue in this pattern until you reach the weaved sections at the top. Repeat on all 4 quadrants.

Step 4 Beetlejuice-Inspired Halloween VIVIDS Color Blocking

Pro Tip

A “Negative Space” formula allows you to create a perfect blend between two colors that are opposite to one another.

Step 5: Striped Sections

For the 3 weaved sections that you isolated at the top when sectioning each quadrant, apply the Violet formula to the first two inches. Then utilizing the Black formula, paint thin stripes carefully every inch or so until you reach the bottom of the section. Repeat in all four quadrants.

Step 6: Fringe

Taking thin sections in the fringe area, repeat the color melt described in Step 4 in miniature form.

Step 6 Beetlejuice-Inspired Halloween VIVIDS Color Blocking
Process all 30 minutes at room temperature. Rinse with cold water and high water pressure until the water runs clear, condition with PRAVANA Color Protect Condition and style as desired.
