Of course you know Pantone’s colour of the year was Very Peri – but have you perfected the formula to get that perfect periwinkle vanish on your blondes yet? We know someone who has – Marlon Hawkins, Artistic Director at Brooks & Brooks – and Marlon tells us this is THE summer look.
“Very Peri delicately mixes reds and blues to create a periwinkle vanish. This mix of cool and warm makes this shade unique and I love it.” says Marlon.
Your technical guide
- Get a clean canvas with optimum condition, starting with L’Oreal Metal Detox to neutralise any metal build up on the hair to stop breakage and give me 100% guaranteed colour results.
- For the global pre-lighter use L’Oreal Blond Studio 8 levels and lift for 50 mins. It’s important to pre-tone the hair helping get a perfect target shade, I used Loreal Dia-Light 10.02 to neutralise and vanish the raw lifted blonde.
- Colour formula for Very Peri using Majirel glow, L.22 (18g), Majirel Blue (2g) and Clear (10g) developed for 20 mins. Glow has a beautiful shimmery finish that really brings this Pantone to life.
- Apply Redken One United and L’Oreal Tecniart Pli and wrap dried the hair with a paddle brush making sure there are no partings in the hair while smoothing out the length and ends. Then gently run the ghd Platinum iron throughout for a polished finish.
