Hairstyles How To: Brig Van Osten's "Pretty in Pink" look with PRAVANA

Sweet Sixteen is a special time in every girl’s life, and Lilah, a fan of BRAVO TV’s Shear Genius, had a very unique wish for hers—have Brig Van Osten, the Season 3 winner of the show, transform her natural hair color into pastel pink for her 16th birthday.  Using PRAVANA’s VIVIDS, here is how Brig transformed Lilah’s blonde locks into a pretty pink shade:

Formula: Equal Parts ChromaSilk VIVIDS Pink + ChromaSilk PASTELS Pretty in Pink









Step by Step:

  • Part hair into four sections
  • Start at nape of neck
  • Take a slice of hair and place onto foil
  • Begin application of PRAVANA Pure Light Powder Lightener & 20 volume developer, off the scalp through ends
  • Turn brush vertically and stagger the application 1” off scalp. This will create a grown-out effect.
  • Continue slicing all of the hair in each section
  • Lift hair up to at least a level 8. For best pastel results, lift hair to a level 10.
  • Shampoo hair and blow dry
  • After hair is dried, part into 4 sections
  • Apply Pravana VIVIDS Pastels Pretty in Pink + VIVIDS Pink Mixture all over hair for 20 minutes; no heat is necessary to process
  • Rinse color with cool water and condition
