New Hair!

I know, I know.  You guys are all like, “It’s always new hair with you!”   But I’m having fun with an pastel orange at the moment.   I started out at a level 5 bright copper red.  Something like this:




Then we bleached it twice and toned it with a level 7 orange red and 5 vol.


Six weeks later we touched up my roots and ran the bleach through the ends one more time.  This time we toned it with 2 parts yellow Rush Deep Color Direct, 1 part Manic Panic Pillarbox Red and a dollop of Manic Panic Cotton Candy Pink.   We processed it for 1/2 hour with no heat.   I called this phase of the color Solar Flare.   lol


And after one washing.  I love this pastel phase… springy and fun!


Same color-two different looks from the lighting.


This is the first time that I’ve used the new Rusk veggie colors and I have to say I’m pretty impressed.   It didn’t bleed onto my pillowcases or towels at all.

    1. Thanks! It’s been a lot of fun to play with it. I’m thinking of putting a pastel pink over this color once it fades some more.
