Get the Look: Mother of Pearl Hair with Precious Metals


PRAVANA recently announced their new color team, and aren't wasting any time putting them to work. This gorgeous, mother-of-pearl look was created by Presley Poe, who's generously shared her techniques here!

Check out Presley’s formula below:

  1. Mix equal parts VIVIDS Moody Blue and VIVIDS Rose Gold then apply to the base and nape
  2. Apply VIVIDS Rose Gold to the area above the nape from the end of the base color through the ends of the hair
  3. Apply VIVIDS Smokey Silver to the crown
  4. Apply VIVIDS Rose Gold to the sides
  5. In the next 1” section, apply VIVIDS Rose Gold to the mid-shaft and VIVIDS Moody Blue to the ends
  6. In the last few sections before the part, apply VIVIDS Moody Blue and repeat on the other side
  7. Process for 20 minutes at room temperature
