ColorDesign Artists Create a Peachy-Pink Hue for the Cover of The Colorist

Colorist Magazine Cover

This vibrant peachy-pink hue is meant to add serious sizzle to clients' tresses-even in the chill of winter.

For the peach-meets- pink creation featured in this month’s “The Colorist,” ColorDesign artists Jackie Heredia and Tatiana Salcedo tapped one of the world’s most vibrant cities as a source of color inspiration. “Both of us love the vivid colors of Havana,” enthuses the duo. “We wanted to create a warm look that was fashion-forward as well as client-friendly, and to heat up our model’s hairstyle as a reprieve from this chilly season.” Mission accomplished!

Rinse babylights using ColorDesign Reconstruction Shampoo once desired level 8 is achieved.

Starting in the back right quadrant using diagonal back partings, tap the top of your parting with Formula 2, lift hair up and over toward the middle point of your 4 quadrants, and feather Formula 2 from underneath your section up toward the middle point of the 4 quadrants. Repeat on all sections. Process for 35 minutes and rinse with Reconstruction Shampoo. Condition ends with Reconstruction Oil, then rinse.
