Amanda- Purple/Violet Hair Color

How It’s Done

Amanda was natural level 8G with white blonde ends. She actually spent the time to naturally grow her hair to complete the ombre fad look! She took on the daring task of coloring her hair a violet purple by herself with a generic box dye and of course, didn’t get the lasting, professional results she wanted.

We used a mix of a few color lines. She had the previous color on her ends, but her roots were her natural level 8G. At the base I applied Matrix Red/Violet Additive with Vol 10. Developer. Her midshaft we applied Pravana Violet Vol. 10 developer, and at the ends Pravana Violet, no developer.

Fantasy colors can be extremely difficult to achieve. Make sure your stylist takes into consideration what condition and color your hair is before application. Don’t get discouraged if it isn’t spot on the first try! It took me 3 months to get the exact red color I have and wanted.
