Watch and learn an easy Diffused Highlighting technique with a Prismatic WINTER WHITE formula as fresh as the new fallen snow from the Masters of Holographic Hair Michael and Melody Lowenstein of our PRAVANA Collective!

Formulas

Lighting Formula

30g Pure Light Ultra Lightener + 60g 10 Volume Creme Developer

Lowlight Formula

20g ChromaSilk Creme Hair Color 9.8 + 30g 10 Volume Creme Developer

Overlay Formula

ChromaSilk Express Tones 10g Pearl + 5g Smokey Silver + 85g Clear + 150g Zero Lift Creme Developer

Application

Prep the hair by spraying Purify and Revive PRIME combing through to distribute evenly and allowing to sit for 3 minutes while you mix your lightener. This will diminish any minerals in the hair that can affect the color and condition of the hair during a lightening service. (No shampoo or rinsing required.)

Step 1: Section

Section the hair into four quadrants to create a working guide.

Step 2: Highlight Retouch

Using a horizontal foil placement pattern, take thin partings and micro stitch the hair. Apply the Lightening Formula to the new regrowth only. Leave the rest of the unstitched hair out in between the foils.

Pro Tip

This technique allows less hair to peek through between the foils creating a more diffused look.

Step 3: Lowlight

Using the same horizontal foil placement pattern, take thin partings and micro stitch the hair. Apply the Lowlight Formula to the entire length of the hair for subtle dimension (every other foil). Leave the rest of the unstitched hair out in between the foils.

Pro Tip

For more dimension, take slices stead of microstitches.

Process until the highlights reach a pale yellow Level 10 (up to 50 minutes checking every 5-10 minutes).

Step 4: Treat

Rinse with cool water, shampoo with PRAVANA Intense Therapy Cleanse, towel-dry and apply Silk Degrees Prep and Treat for 5 minutes at the sink. Rinse and towel-dry.

Pro Tip

Treating the hair with Silk Degrees Prep and Treat after removing the lightener equalizes the porosity for even toning color deposit and long-lasting color.

Step 5: Overlay

Apply the Overlay Formula from roots through the ends and process 15 minutes.
Rinse only and apply Silk Degrees Prep and Treat for a second time as a treatment for 5 minutes at the sink. Rinse.

Reveal

Towel dry the hair and apply PRAVANA Hydra Pearl Oil directly onto your hands, emulsify and apply it to the hair for more control where you want it to go. When using hot tools to style, PRAVANA Hydra Pearl Oil adds lightweight shine and heat protection up to 450 degrees.
