Brooks & Brooks Artistic Director Marlon Hawkins describes why he loves the new Pantone Colour of the Year and how to get the 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.
Get the Look
- 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 100% guaranteed colour results.
- For the global pre-lightener use L’Oreal Blond Studio 8 level and lift for 50 mins. It’s important to pre-tone the hair helping to get a perfect target shade. I used L’Ooreal 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 colour to life.
- Apply Redken One United and L’Oreal TecniArt Pli and dry the hair with a paddle brush, making sure there are no partings in the hair while smoothing out the lengths and ends. Then gently run the ghd Platinum+ iron throughout for a polished finish.
