About a decade ago, the rage was all about coloring the bottom section of the hair dark. Then it slowly started transitioning to balayaging highlights, and then to ombre with darker roots that were smudged into lighter ends. Bringing a new collection forward for Summer of 2013, be Clarked professional luxury hair care launched a new series called Burnt Ends, which marries many of the color trends brought forth in the past decade.
“Burnt Ends” is a high contrast color fusion, focusing on a lighter base with a more blunt fusion of intense color burned into the ends. To coincide with the color collection, the be Clarked design team also created fusion haircuts with razor cutting and texture blends with heat styling. Learn how the be Clarked team created the looks below:
Blue Burnt Ends Collectionark first applied Pravana Pastel Blissful Blue in an ombre application to blend with the pale blonde with Pravana Vivids Blue then burnt the end with 5cc Framesi 1NB with Proxima 15 volume.
We then rinsed and conditioned with be Clarked “revive” argan oil conditioner, rinsed and applied be Clarked “straighten up” leave in conditioner and smoothing balm and dried her hair. For the haircut, be Clarked Design Team member Jon Clifford, began her edgy haircut. Jon first sectioned off the top horseshoe section of her hair, and began tightly sculpting the back with a razor. Afterwards, Jon did an over directed point cut starting from the occipital forward through the crown at a 45 degree angle. We then sprayed be Clarked “arrogance” three in one hairspray on the medium setting to style the hair into place. The “arrogance” three in one hairspray created shine, hold and most of all fantastic color protection. [pagebreak]

Clark Russell then burned the roots with the Framesi Framcolor 2001 20cc 4W and 10cc 3N with Proxima 15 Volume Developer.

Design Team member and Educator Jon Clifford, then started on a dry cut on the model. Using an Ergo Hot Razor, Jon created a rounded razor cut bob.
