Haircolor How To: Muted Metallic Mauve

Metallic1One of fall's hottest hair trends is metallic hues. To help you achieve this look quickly and beautifully, PRAVANA has launched new ChromaSilk Express Tones. Created in collaboration with hair guru Guy Tang to coincide with the new Pure Enlightenment Balayage Kit launch, the Express Tones are gentle and ammonia-free, leaving hair shinier and healthier in under five minutes. These hair top coats come in eight intermixable shades so you can use them to offer customized color for your clients following balayage, highlighting or blonding services. With the metallic trend taking off this fall, you'll want to have the Express Tones in Violet, Ash, Pearl, Copper, Gold and Clear at your stylist station for clients looking to embrace this high-shine style.

To get the metallic look using the Express Tones, combine one part Express Tones to 1 1/2 parts ChromaSilk Zero Lift then apply to damp hair. Leave on for five minutes for a gorgeous sheen, or up to 10 minutes if you’re looking for an even deeper tone. By adding Clear to your formula, you can achieve an even shinier, metallic result on strands.
